CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will release the debut album Kingdom of the Hammer King from new epic Power Metal sensation HAMMER KING on May 5th in North America!
HAMMER KING represent the perfect, balanced heavy sound of the German Power Metal tradition, highlighted by the right dose of epic tones. The music moves around the figure of singer/guitarist/composer Titan Fox (ROSS THE BOSS’ singer). The line-up is completed by former SALTATIO MORTIS drummer Dolph A. Macallan, K.K. Basement on bass and Gino Wilde on guitar. All the musicians involved in this band have an aged and trained background in Metal music, as demonstrated through the masterful Kingdom of the Hammer King!
What surprises most on the album is the catchy immediacy of the compositions. Indeed, the melodies and glorious guitar solos embed and remain in the brain. “Aderlass; blood of Sacrifice,” “Chancellor of Glory,” and the title track are a perfect examples of epic Power Metal anthems that’ll have you singing at the top of your lungs and fist-pumping for the duration. All killer, no filler; Kingdom of the Hammer King is the complete package!
Kingdom Of The Hammer King was recorded and produced at the Greywolf Studios by POWERWOLF’s own Charles Greywolf. The cover artwork was created by German Artist Timo Würz who was able to capture with his art the essence and power of the band. The LP version will include a bonus track “Leather Indians (of Steel).”
