Alter Bridge and Slash vocalist Myles Kennedy is on his way back with his third solo album, The Art of Letting Go, while also delivering the new single "Say What You Will," a very entertaining companion video and extending his solo touring to include new North American shows in 2025.

To introduce the new album, Kennedy is back with a blistering track called "Say What You Will" that features the talents of his solo trio that includes Zia Uddin on drums and Tim Tournier on bass.

The hard-hitting and motivational track features an entertaining video from Gordy De St. Jeor centering on a bullied young girl who finds the strength to break out her shell by finding herself in music. With the help of three of her school’s staffers played by the band members, they win over everyone at the school talent show.

Kennedy has kept a steady pace for his solo efforts, issuing a new album ever three years. This latest effort features the aforementioned "Say What You Will," but also includes the riff-heavy opening title track, the haunting closer "How the Story Ends" and songs that show the dedication to songcraft such as "Mr. Downside," "Miss You When You’re Gone" and "Saving Face" helping to fill out the record.

The Art of Letting Go album is due for release Oct. 11 through Napalm Records. Pre-orders in CD, vinyl and digital formats at lnk.to/MK-TheArtOfLettingGo

After completing their "40 Years Of Destruction" anniversary tour in 2023 throughout South America, Mexico and Europe, German thrash metal pioneers DESTRUCTION are far from slowing down. Today the quartet has released a hard-hitting new single, "No Kings – No Masters", along with an accompanying music video. This surprise release will be available on two-track 12-inch vinyl in a very limited fan edition and will contain the new single and a cover version of ACCEPT’s classic track "Fast As A Shark".

DESTRUCTION’s massive career has seen many successes, with the band hitting stages at the worldโ€™s biggest festivals around the world like Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Graspop Metal Meeting and Mรฉxico Metal Fest. They are more than prepared for their next milestones. Stay tuned for more news about an upcoming album, due in early 2025.

DESTRUCTION, known as one of the "Teutonic Four", alongside KREATOR, SODOM and TANKARD, will be reunited with the other three acts at this’s "Klash Of The Ruhrpott" concert on July 20 โ€” a show that promises to celebrate thrash metal in its purest form and solidify their legacy in the genre. Don’t miss out on this event promising to become a legend and the rare occasion to witness the "Teutonic Four" united.

DESTRUCTION bassist/vocalist Schmier comments on "No Kings – No Masters": "The new single starts the countdown for the new album a bit early, but we wanted to show our fans that we are working on a kick-ass new record. Yes, it will be worth the wait.

"’No Kings – No Masters’ is a razor-sharp riff monster with tons of crushing guitars and neck-breaking speed! Next-level DESTRUCTION!!!

"We hope this beast will keep you excited for the new output in early 2025. PLAY IT LOUD!!!"

In a January 2023 interview with Felipe Canales of Chile’s iRock, Schmier was asked if he and his DESTRUCTION bandmates have ever considered changing their sound in order to reach a wider audience. He responded: "In Germany, we say, ‘Don’t change your winning recipe. Stick to the guns. Stick to what you can do best.’ And for me, what I can do best is playing thrash metal. Every album we do sounds a little bit different, but it always will sound like DESTRUCTION.

"When you get older, it’s very easy to slow down," Schmier explained. "A lot of musicians, when they [get] older, they wanna slow down; they wanna play blues; they wanna play more mellow music. For me, that’s never been the case. I think the older you [get], the more you go crazy about it. You wanna still show the young kids how it’s done. When we go out there to the festivals, we competeโ€ฆ To all those young bands, I could be [their] father, so I have to be the role model. So that’s how I see it. Slowing down and changing something is not what we do."

As for whether it’s harder for him to play physically challenging music as he gets older, Schmier said: "It’s like in football โ€” the old, experienced player, he has the feel for it. The young player runs more and runs faster. The old player has the eye and the brain. And it’s the same in music. Of course I have to train harder to go on stage, but my experience of my age is great because I have better voice control. I know more what I want. I know what I don’t want and where the band belongs. So this experience of a certain 40 years in the music business is, of course, a great one."

DESTRUCTION’s latest studio album, "Diabolical", came out in April 2022 via Napalm Records.

In August 2021, DESTRUCTION officially parted ways with founding guitarist Michael "Mike" Sifringer and replaced him with Martin Furia. The Argentinian-born, Belgian-based Furia is best known for his work as sound engineer and producer for such bands as NERVOSA and EVIL INVADERS.

Sifringer was the only member of DESTRUCTION to have remained constant throughout the band’s career. Schmier appeared on DESTRUCTION’s first three albums before exiting the band and being replaced by POLTERGEIST vocalist Andrรฉ Grieder. Andrรฉ’s sole recorded appearance with DESTRUCTION was on the "Cracked Brain" album, which came out in 1990. Schmier rejoined DESTRUCTION in 1999.

Finnish masters of melancholic brutality, WOLFHEART, are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming seventh studio album โ€œDraconian Darknessโ€ which is due out on September 6, 2024, via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM). After recently launching pre-orders for the record, the band now also break the silence even further by launching the official music video for the first digital single, โ€œGrave.โ€ Mellow piano tunes introduce the track before it transforms into a hefty banger. Blending vicious riffing with icy atmosphere and impactful melodies: This song lifts WOLFHEARTโ€˜s trademark sound to new heights and makes โ€œGraveโ€ nothing but a must for the bandโ€™s future set lists; their current live itinerary can be found below!

Stream/purchase the track: wolfheart.rpm.link/gravePR

Mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen comments, โ€œโ€˜Graveโ€™ was the first song that was written for the album and became the beacon that was leading the whole production of the album. Push the dark elements even further from the light to give maximum contrast to the melodies and huge choruses. From every album we have clear favourites for live songs and โ€˜Graveโ€™ stands on the podium unchallenged!โ€

Pre-order โ€œDraconian Darknessโ€ in the physical format of your choice (CD-digipak, coloured vinyl), pre-save it on your favourite DSP or pre-order it digitally to receive โ€œGraveโ€ instantly now, at wolfheart.rpm.link/draconiandarknessPR

The opus was recorded at Deep Noise Studios and produced, mixed and mastered by the bandโ€™s long-time collaborator Saku Moilanen; its artwork was crafted by Nikos Stavridakis (VisionBlack).

Legendary German heavy metal pioneers BLIND GUARDIAN have announced the release of an epic re-recorded version of their classic 1992 breakthrough album "Somewhere Far Beyond".

"Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited", which was recorded in 2022 and 2023, is a refreshing and powerful tribute to one of the most influential albums in German metal history. It paved the way for BLIND GUARDIAN’s international career that is still going strong today and this re-recording impresses with all the class and quality these pioneers have been known and respected for since forming as LUCIFER’S HERITAGE three decades ago.

"Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited" will be released on August 2, 2024 coinciding with BLIND GUARDIAN’s triumphant return to this year’s edition of Wacken Open Air festival, and a wide selection of physical variants can be pre-ordered as of today.

To give you a first impression of the new sound, "The Quest For Tanelorn (Revisited)" has been released as a single today. A music video by Dirk Behlau featuring historic and new studio, backstage and live footage has also been made available. You can watch it below.

09. The Piper’s Calling (Revisited) (01:02)
10. Somewhere Far Beyond (Revisited) (07:33)

The album will be released as a limited-edition three-disc digipak which contains an additional 2022 live version of the entire album on a separate CD and a Blu-ray disc with the anniversary sets at Rock Hard Festival and Hellfest 2022. "Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited" will also be available as gatefold LP with a 24-page LP booklet and as jewelcase CD as well as a digital album.

After releasing three albums on No Remorse Records, "Somewhere Far Beyond" was BLIND GUARDIAN’s major label debut via Virgin Records and opened the doors to the Japanese market resulting in a wider availability and presence on the global metal scene. After finding the right balance of speed, heaviness, melodies, drama, and irresistible choruses on 1990’s "Tales From The Twilight World", "Somewhere Far Beyond" honed this approach to perfection, evolving further on a conceptual level and increasing BLIND GUARDIAN’s sonic range. On "Somewhere Far Beyond" the band experimented with keyboards, orchestrations, and folk elements, the latter manifesting in the group’s best-known song and live staple "The Bard’s Song (In The Forest)", whereas other tracks like "Ashes To Ashes", the rapid "Journey Through The Dark" or "The Quest For Tanelorn" connected well with previous mostly fast-paced albums yet offered an additional push in dynamics.

Fast forward 30 years! Prior to releasing the much-lauded opus "The God Machine" in September 2022, BLIND GUARDIAN had been performing "Somewhere Far Beyond" in its entirety at Rock Hard Festival and Hellfest in summer 2022 in front of tens of thousands of fans singing along to each track. Both shows were filmed and recorded professionally and aired via WDR and ARTE. For the limited triple-disc edition of "Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited", the Hellfest material was newly edited by the band’s longtime videographer Dirk Behlau using additional multi-cam footage. The idea of re-recording the album originated from the rehearsals for these shows as Hansi Kรผrsch explains in the detailed liner notes.

"The original idea wasn’t to do a re-recording," he writes. "When rehearsing for the anniversary gigs, corona hit and we couldn’t be certain that those shows would take place. We still wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the album and if we wouldn’t be able to include a live version, we initially thought we could at least record the rehearsals."

Not 100% satisfied with those rough versions, BLIND GUARDIAN decided to go all in, knowing the risk of being frowned upon by fans who consider re-recordings utter blasphemy.

"We tried to recapture what we did in 1992 but compensate youth with skillful experience, though in a hungry way," Hansi says. "We never discussed any major changes but with over 30 years of experience, and our current lineup, those ingredients already add a new flavor to it."

With the basic tracks recorded in a live setting, "Somewhere Far Beyond Revisited" is leaner and more focused on impact in terms of guitar arrangements yet retains all the harmonies and melodies essential to the original.

"We finally ended up with this cool hybrid version," guitarist Andrรฉ Olbrich adds. "We combined how we play the songs today, but at the same time, really tried to retain that speed metal spirit of the early ’90s!"

๐—”๐—น๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐—บ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜„: ๐—–๐—”๐—ง๐—›๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—˜๐—ฃ๐—ฆ๐—ฌ โ€“ ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—ข๐—— & ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—˜๐—˜๐—Ÿ

CATHALEPSY is a Chilean band that was founded back in 1998 and has been active again since 2019 – after a nine-year hiatus. Interestingly, the band has only released one album to date (โ€˜Fight In The Skyโ€™, 2005), although this is no longer entirely true of the band constellation, as only band founder and drummer Luigi Ansaldi and – since the relaunch – guitarist/bassist Fabiรกn Valdรฉs remain. For the new album, they have brought on board a number of internationally renowned singers and guitarists whose names should bring tears of joy to the eyes of any (power) metal fan.

Even though I have already mentioned the genre, the album name alone should make every fan expect a celebration of true heavy metal. This is why not only the title of the opener โ€˜We Are The Warriorsโ€™, but also the singer Tim โ€˜Ripperโ€™ Owens, is the perfect choice. The song is a typical power metal track with Ripper’s characteristic and siren-like voice, which inevitably gives the whole thing a (KK’s) Priest flavour. The chorus is so catchy and simple that you can still bawl it out after your twelfth barley spritzer. Joey De Maio is sure to be jealous!

With Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear), Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween) and Thobbe Englund (Civil War, ex-Sabaton) on board, โ€˜Hammer Heartโ€™ comes along with a lot of vigour, the song could easily have been written by Scheepers’ house band and is – almost as expected – an absolute highlight, despite its somewhat clichรฉd title. From one exceptional singer, it’s straight on to the next, as Harry โ€˜The Tyrantโ€™ Conklin (Jag Panzer) does the honours on the title track. It’s only logical that he puts his vocal stamp on the song, which is bursting with energy.

โ€˜Emptinessโ€™ pushes out the gas again and sounds very European thanks to the easily accessible hookline. Ivan Giannini (Vision Divine) on vocals and Jens Ludwig (Edguy) on six-string provide active support here and deliver another sure-fire hit. In keeping with its name, โ€˜Rockstarโ€™ sounds more like hard rock than metal, and the Chileans have appropriately recruited David Readman (PinkCream 69, Voodoo Circle) and Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake) for this track. Although the song differs slightly from the prevailing style, it still fits perfectly into the tracklist.

โ€˜The Final Battleโ€™ with Giacomo Voli (Rhapsody of Fire) on the microphone is once again full-throttle power metal, just as melodic as Violi’s actual field of activity, but without the symphonic bombast of the Italians. The centrepiece of the album is โ€˜Song of Ice and Fireโ€™, a track lasting not quite eight and a half minutes that deals with George R.R. Martin’s work. And the song is just as epic as the literary model, with jack-of-all-trades Herbie Langhans (Radiant, Avantasia, among others) providing the vocals and Thobbe Englund once again contributing the solos. Although the basic structure is kept in a galloping rhythm, the track occasionally breaks out into quieter, more sublime moments. Normally this would have been the perfect closing number, but last but not least there is an orchestral version of โ€˜Hammer Heartโ€™, whereby the only difference is that a few symphonic elements are added to the song and Ross The Boss (ex-Manowar) performs the solo. Personally, the earthier, regular version is enough for me.

The only stinker on this album goes by the name of โ€˜Heavy Metal Faithโ€™, for which Gamma Ray frontman Frank Beck was engaged (who, incidentally, delivers an impeccable performance). To me, the song sounds like a stoned unicorn leaping through the woods, drunk with joy and warbling to itself, like Freedom Call on sugar. And as for the lyrics: I’m certainly not demanding – music should first and foremost just sound good – but lines like โ€˜…we are the true heavy metal faith, we drink beer every day…โ€™ make even my toenails roll up. So despite the involvement of Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth, ex-King Diamond, ex-Testament) and Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall), I can’t help but look longingly at the skip button.

Apart from the aforementioned track, โ€˜Blood & Steelโ€™ is a strong album that should not be missed simply because of the illustrious line-up of guests.

And how do you like Power Metal? Before you reveal your dirty tastes (just kidding!), let’s take into account that tastes are like particles in the air that can be counted in millions, finally tastes are personal and that places us in the millions of people that we are in the world, but the beautiful thing about this is when millions of people come together and we agree just as we do with this subgenre, now you can say your tastes.

I am of the firm idea that: If musicians with experience get together and compose music, enjoying every moment of it, they transmit it in their music and make us feel it, achieving the magic of transmitting it, because in the end the human being is not so different in the sense of emotions (joy, motivation, sadness, anger, etc.), then we are looking at a good album and that is exactly what Nils did by inviting his friends and putting together this powerful debut album.

The name BLOODORN is a play on the Viking torture method โ€œBlรดdรถrnโ€ (better known as โ€œBlood Eagleโ€). In the band’s universe, BLOODORN is like a REAPER: a monster ready to kill and destroy everything in its path.

Our protagonists describe their style as ๐™€๐™ญ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™š๐™ข ๐™‹๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™š๐™ง ๐™ˆ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ก, addressing a common theme about fighting for what you believe in, not backing down and always getting up after a fall. Let the fury arise! We unleash this feeling of anger against wrongdoing and injustice and let it out completely, crushing our enemies.

โ€œAnyone who stands in our way is doomed. Like the murderer โ€œWe are the hunters and you are the prey!โ€ They confess that their inspiration comes from bands like GAMMA RAY, BATTLE BEAST and Extreme Metal bands (which they don’t specify), but that it is basically ๐™ˆ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ก who follow the path of WARMEN, UN, combined with ๐™ˆ๐™ค๐™™๐™š๐™ง๐™ฃ ๐™ˆ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ก which is born from AMARANTHE by which without a doubt achieve a feast for several very diverse tastes.

Before the first explosion that dazzled us, โ€œOverture XISโ€ opens the curtain, which serves as an introduction, where Nils shows off his guitar by showing off with skillful notes. We let ourselves be carried away by the turbulence of โ€œFear the Coming Waveโ€ which from the beginning lets its devastating power be felt, a ๐™‹๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™š๐™ง ๐™ˆ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ก that is in the vein of the references they gave for what makes them sound aggressive, epic, wild, fast, but in turn full of melody, the symphonic keyboards sound discreet, but they accentuate the harmony well, Mike knows how to elevate to higher levels with his voice.

There are some fast chords that remind me of DRAGONFORCE in โ€œUnder The Secret Signโ€, Nils shows off his guitar skills, but Francesco and Michael are not far behind, they support him well with their fluid, dynamic and ultra rhythmic base. fast, and this time Mike raises his treble to higher levels in an impressive way, this whole ensemble manages to transmit an energy, like an electric shock, I can’t leave behind those choruses with a certain dramatic air that repeat "… Under the Secret Sign…" . We move on to โ€œRise Up Againโ€ where they slow down a little, but where the melody overflows a little more, also preserving that epic atmosphere, which stands out more because of the choruses.

I like Extreme Metal, but on โ€œTonight We Fight!โ€ things are on the more modern side, with elements of Modern Metal, its influence from AMARANTHE is very evident and even some verses that seem like a Rap to me, which are almost at the end, of course they retain that Metallic part, although for me this takes away from it quite to your proposal. Fortunately for me, โ€œGod Won’t Comeโ€ arrives with a very clear air of the Finnish WARMEN as more aggressive voices parade, without reaching the gutturals, something more appropriate for Melodeath and they manage to put order, although for the most part they stay within of the Power Metal. It’s time for โ€œForging The Future (Whit Our Blade)โ€ and in my opinion it is the cut that has the most purity in regards to Power Metal, clearly noticing that attitude of joy, energy and melody with rhythms of Heavy and Sp eed Metal , something the father of this subgenre should be proud of: Kai Hansen.

โ€œLet The Fury Riseโ€ returns us a little to that flow of Extreme Metal, by offering ultra-fast guitars that alternate with denser ones without reaching the Groove Metal, it is a song that gives me the feeling that something is missing, The song is not bad, but after several listens it leaves me with a feeling of dissatisfaction. โ€œSix Wounded Wolvesโ€ is a song that offers a cocktail of flavors and that surprises me a little, its main line sounds like Epic Power Metal especially because of those choruses that accompany it almost the entire way, the bursts of speed are included, But a lake of tranquility of an operatic-looking symphonic melody accompanied only by keyboards that lasts a few seconds seems strange to me, leaving me somewhat disconcerted.

We come to โ€œBloodornโ€, a song that they released as a single, where they show their power of epic sculpture, great choruses that give it a lot of power when joined with those harmonious guitars and Mike sounding aggressive in his voice, a song that knows how to break it with force and it is one of my favorites. We come to the end with โ€œSquare Hammerโ€, his most melodic song, his Heavy / Power Metal makes it more accessible, but not softer, since the guitars sound very Heavy’s and melodic, even Mike is more accessible when it comes to singing, proving a good topic to close. So in summary BLOODORN offers us a fresh, unusual proposal, using a Power Metal base, which is enjoyed and gains more with each listen.

When Janne and Antti Wirman reactivated their band, Warmen, in August 2023, no one could have guessed what would await us. While Warmen was known in the past as a side project and playground for the Children Of Bodom keyboardist, the men (Janne โ€œWarmanโ€ Wirman, Petri Lindroos, Antti โ€œWarmanโ€ Wirman, Jyri Helko & Seppo Tarvainen) released Here For None, a breathtaking melodic death metal masterpiece and impressively followed in the footsteps of Janne’s previous band.

Today, the band presents an animated music video for one of the album’s most popular songs, "A World Of Pain". The fully animated video clip was created by students on the Bachelor of Design (Animation & Interactive Media) course at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. They have spent the last 15 weeks working on the video and the result is a visual fireworks display, an animated short film. Producers Aaron McLoughlin and Simon Norton and their team spent around 3,000 hours creating the video. It can be viewed below.

The band explains: "We’re delighted to have now received an animated video from RMIT University and we have to say it’s fantastic. It’s an incredible visual fireworks display that matches our song: ‘A World Of Pain’. Probably the most brutal song on the last album it’s always fun to play live, completely different to what we’ve ever done before. Have fun watching!"

Aaron McLoughlin adds: "Our first impression of the song was how epic the raw emotion sounded, so we wanted to convey that sense of scale. RMIT’s talented animation students never fail to impress, and they have dreamed up this brutal off-world setting in which large Things happen. The concept art was so amazing that we immediately knew we had to incorporate a lot of visual effects into the hand-drawn animations, much more than we had ever done before. I’m super proud of the result – it’s a planet-destroying track and the team has worked countless hours to visualize the power of Warmen."

Here For None was released worldwide August 18, 2023 via Reaper Entertainment. True to the motto, "The king is dead, long live the king," Warmen is not only headed towards heavier shores musically due to the bandโ€™s updated lineup, but it can also be said with justification that Warmen is taking on the musical legacy of Wirman’s former band in a spectacular way.

โ€œI will always be Janne from Bodom. That’s okay with me. I’m happy about it and I don’t have to hide my past. I also see that as a positive thing for Warmen,โ€ Wirman notes of his good reputation and the attention he gets within the metal scene. Together with his brother Antti Wirman and longtime friend Jyri Helko, the trio has recuited Seppo Tarvainen on drums as well as Petri Lindroos (Ensiferum) on vocals to make Here For None a true masterpiece of melodic death metal.

Cainites have released a video for โ€œVampire Godโ€, third single taken from the debut album โ€œRevenantโ€ to be released on June 21st by Scarlet Records.

Slaves to our sins, we pray to a faded god who no longer responds โ€“ our damned souls turn to a new god: the Vampire God, who feeds on the blood of the saints.

Cainites is the name of the new melodic death metal duo risen from the ashes of the Italian gothic-doom masters Motus Tenebrae and founded by Andrea Falaschi aka Frater Orion (Deathless Legacy), on vocals, drums and keyboards, and Daniele Ciranna, on guitar and bass.

Through their dark, gloomy melodic death metal โ€“ heavily influenced by the British and Scandinavian masters with a creepy Mediterranean twist too โ€“ Cainites create their own mystique, portraying the bloody mark they have to carry.

โ€œRevenantโ€ is a concept album about an old Orthodox priest who became a vampire against his will. A controversial, cruel and yet fascinating character, oscillating between a sense of abandonment by the divine and the manifestation of a faith that is still present, with continuous pleas to God to stop him from his relentless bloodshed โ€“ yearning for a redemption that cannot be reached.

Swedish metallers HAMMERFALL have released a new single, "The End Justifies". This classic HAMMERFALL anthem is the second single from the band’s upcoming album, "Avenge The Fallen", due on August 9 via Nuclear Blast Records.

"The End Justifies" captures the essence of HAMMERFALL’s signature sound, combining powerful riffs, soaring vocals, and a relentless rhythm that fans have come to love. The accompanying video, filmed in the band’s rehearsal studio, brings an intense visual experience that matches the song’s driving energy. Fast-paced camera movements and raw, unfiltered footage showcase the band’s passion and dedication, creating an immersive experience for viewers.

Less than a year after taking the final bow of the "United Forces" tour, the quintet of guitarist Oscar Dronjak, singer Joacim Cans, bass player Fredrik Larsson, guitarist Pontus Norgen and drummer David Wallin are back with ten brand new solid pieces of classic heavy metal.

"This is our 13th album," Cans said about "Avenge The Fallen". "How do you still stay relevant after 13 albums? It’s very much like the opening line to the song ‘Avenge The Fallen’: ‘What is the worst, be the one who died, or be the one who survived.’ Think about it, because it is a tough question".

He continued: "Do we want to be a band who releases new music just for the sole reason of getting out on the road again or do we want to keep pushing and challenging ourselves? In times where people have less and less attention span, we still think in the form of full-length albums. A few good songs don’t make a strong album. A strong album comes from an album full of great songs and that’s what we’re delivering with ‘Avenge The Fallen’."

This past April, HAMMERFALL unleashed the first single and video from "Avenge The Fallen", "Hail To The King", a song that was born on the road.

"I began working on ‘Hail To The King’ while on tour in the U.S. with HELLOWEEN," Dronjak recalled. "By the end of the tour, I was getting close to wrapping the song up, so straight after the Los Angeles gig, I headed to the bus where I worked like a mad man to get the last pieces together. That turned out to be the show where one of my favorite wrestlers, Chris Jericho, came to visit. It was also the show where Fredrik met his idol Frank Bello from ANTHRAX and Joacim met Jay Ruston, producer for ARMORED SAINT, AVATAR, ANTHRAX, Corey Taylor and more and whom after this meeting agreed to produce the vocals for ‘Avenge The Fallen’. I missed all that, but I at least got a great song out of it, haha!"

03. Capture The Dream
04. Hail To The King
05. Hero To All
06. Hope Springs Eternal

08. The End Justifies
09. Time Immemorial

In December 2022, HAMMERFALL, which started its career in 1997 on Nuclear Blast with its debut album "Glory To The Brave", announced that it was returning to the long-running German label.

HAMMERFALL’s entire Nuclear Blast catalog, from "Glory To The Brave" to the 2014 album "(r)Evolution" was certified with a diamond award for over 1.5 million worldwide sales.

Following on from "Renegade" (2000),"Crimson Thunder" (2002) and "No Sacrifice, No Victory" (2009),HAMMERFALL’s fifth studio album, "Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken" from 2005, became the band’s fourth album to go gold in Sweden, while "Crimson Thunder" even went platinum, surpassing 60,000 sales in the group’s home country.

In April 2023, HAMMERFALL released a special platinum edition of "Crimson Thunder" with tons of bonus material.

HAMMERFALL’s latest album, "Hammer Of Dawn", was released in February 2022 via Napalm Records. The LP was produced by longtime collaborator Fredrik Nordstrรถm (IN FLAMES, OPETH),who handled mixing, mastering, drum recording, and shared the duty of recording guitars and bass with guitarists Pontus Norgren and Oscar Dronjak. Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT) produced the lead vocals.
