Wielding steel that is true
For the King of Dundee, my destiny
Symphonic power metal purveyors GLORYHAMMER have released the first single and official music video cut from their highly-anticipated third studio album Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex - out May 31, 2019 via Napalm Records. Pre-orders for Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex are now available HERE.
On their 2013 debut album, Tales from the Kingdom of Fife, GLORYHAMMER's story began with the tale of an alternate-history medieval Scotland - a realm of dragons, wizards, magic and dark sorcery. The story tells the legend of the glorious hero Angus McFife XIII, who wages a long war against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax, in order to free the people of Dundee!
In this latest installment of the GLORYHAMMER story, the galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince.
For Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex, the five heroes around Angus McFife XIII created the galactic hymn,"Gloryhammer", which tells the story about their own journey through time and space, the greatest battles of all times and neverending glory.
Listen to the new single HERE!
Christopher Bowes says about the track "Gloryhammer": "Mighty warriors of the galaxy! Are you ready to raise up your laser powered goblin smasher to defeat the forces of Zargothrax? Then it's time to watch the video for our new single... simply called "Gloryhammer"! In this song, Angus McFife has arrived into a terrible alternate universe ruled by the evil wizard Zargothrax... and to make matters worse, his legendary Hammer of Glory is powerless! His only hope is to fly into space and recharge the hammer with the power of astral fire... if his quest fails, then the forces of evil led by the deathknight Ser Proletius will rain down nuclear fire upon the brave resistance fighters of the Kingdom of Fife. The tragic fate of the Kingdom of Fife hangs in the balance once more..."
It is my destiny
To rule the Galaxy
I am the one
The chosen son
GLORYHAMMER's new album Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex will tell us the whole story of the most gigantic battle of all time. Until then, we expect to receive more parts of what will end as the best power metal album the galaxy has ever seen. Keep your eyes and ears open!
Zargothrax on the new album: "Oh wow! I know a lot of people have been waiting on this album for what seems like centuries. For the last three years we've been working non-stop on it in absolute secrecy, and now it is finally complete! We can't wait for y'all to hear it...this is the greatest power metal album of all time. HOOTS!"
