Unanimated are a Swedish melodic death metal band. They were founded in 1989 in Stockholm and dissolved in 1996. In early 1990 The band recorded 2 songs ” Unholy Funeral” and “Ancient god of evil”, and decided to release the songs as a Rehearsal Demo. Followed by their second Demo “Firestorm” in 1991, 4 songs where recorded “Through the gates”, “Blackness of the fallen star”, “Storms from the skies of grief” and “In the Forest of the dreaming dead”. Largely inspired by Dismember, they made two melodic death metal albums. In 1993, “In the Forest of the Dreaming Dead” was released on Pavement Records, 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 of 2008, signed to Regain Records and released a new album, titled “In The Light Of Darkness”, in April of 2009.
