Hammerfall Shares New Single, New Album “Dominion” This Summer

Long-running metallers Hammerfall will release a new album titled Dominion this summer, on 16th August 2019 via Napalm Records. They are streaming ‘(We Make) Sweden Rock’ and you can purchase it now as well.

Joacim Cans describes the creation of “(We Make) Sweden Rock,” “This is a glorious tribute to the Swedish hard rock and metal movement with a lyrical theme using direct references to both other bands and songs. With catchy contagious riffs and enchanting (ear-worm) melodies this song will be an instant classic at future Hammerfall shows. Without the Swedish rock and metal scene with bands like Heavy Load, At the Gates and Yngwie Malmsteen the world would be a pretty boring and dull place! This is our noble tribute to all the bands that inspired not only us to play metal, form bands and eventually crusading around the world in the name of Heavy Metal. All hail the sons of the northern light! “

Dominion is Hammerfall’s eleventh studio album, and second with Napalm Records. Today, Friday May 3rd, Napalm has launched a physical preorder for “DOMINION” including CD, Vinyl, and a limited edition Deluxe Box Set consisting of a digipack, limited 7” light blue vinyl, limited cassette, cover art print, photo cards, patch and sticker.

Good is not good enough; it has to be great.’ This is the mantra we have applied to every aspect of making this album, from the song writing and rehearsals to the production and the performance of each member. The result is “DOMINION,” a powerful force of nature that cannot be stopped. Once you hear it, you will understand.”
