Unanimated are a Swedish extreme metal band. They were founded in 1989 in Stockholm and dissolved in 1996. Largely inspired by Dismember, they made two melodic death metal albums. In 1993, In the Forest of the Dreaming Dead was released on Pavement Music, a label which has since merged with Crash Music Inc.. In 1995 Ancient God of Evil was released on No Fashion Records, an independent Swedish label. The band also contributed to the 1996 Slayer tribute Slaytanic Slaughter II with their cover of "Dead Skin Mask". Their music exemplifies the melodic Swedish sound and though primarily death metal, a black metal influence stands out. Former members have gone on to contribute to various other projects, most notably Therion, Entombed, and Dismember. In 2007, they reformed, and in April 2008, signed to Regain Records. The band has released a new album, titled "In The Light Of Darkness", in April 2009.
