A melodic death metal quintet based out of Stockholm, Sweden, the Unguided was formed in 2010 by Richard Sjunnesson, who had previously played with Falkenberg-based metalcore unit Sonic Syndicate -- he was eventually joined by Cipher System bassist Henric Carlsson, former Sonic Syndicate vocalist Roland Johansson, and guitarist Roger Sjunnesson.
The group issued a debut EP, Nightmareland, in early 2011 via Despotz Records, followed by a full-length outing, Hell Frost, later that November, also via Despotz. The band signed to Napalm Records in advance of the release of their sophomore long-player, 2014's Fragile Immortality, with Lust and Loathing arriving two years later. Original co-frontman and guitarist Roland Johansson left the fold shortly after the LP's release, and in 2017 they dropped And the Battle Royale with new vocalist Jonathan Thorpenberg. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
