Unleash the Fury is the eighth studio album by Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force and Malmsteen's fifteenth album overall, released on 26 July 2005 through Spitfire Records. Included on the album—which is an Enhanced CD—are three videos in QuickTime format. Malmsteen has explained in interviews that the album's title is a reference to a now-infamous incident which occurred in 1988 on a flight to Tokyo during the Odyssey tour: having behaved obnoxiously whilst drunk, he fell asleep and was later awoken by a woman pouring a jug of iced water on him. Enraged, he twice shouted "You've released the fucking fury!" (often misquoted as "unleashed"). The audio from this incident was caught on tape by drummer Anders Johansson, with bassist Barry Dunaway also being heard in the background.
