If power metal is your game, you can’t miss HAMMER KING.
Featuring talented musicians from the German’s heavy/power metal scene, Hammer King emerged last year with their debut album “Kingdom Of The Hammer King”.
After having played their homeland from south to north and east to west, it is time to unleashing their second opus “King Is Rising”.
HAMMER KING's second album (recorded in Charles Greywolf's "Studio Greywolf") is once more packed with the truest Heavy Metal in this and all possible other worlds – Heavy Metal in the tradition of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest with more than a reference to German Power Metal.
The band consists of former ROSS THE BOSS‘ vocalist Titan Fox, former SALTATIO MORTIS‘ drummer Dolph A. Macallan rounded out by K.K. Basement on bass and Gino Wilde on guitars.
The second chapter of the Hammer King saga thematically centers about war and revolt, while the King's battle stories drastically bespeak today's global crises.
"King Is Rising" contains 12 Metal anthems literally made for live shows – with a nod towards faster paced songs compared to their debut "Kingdom Of The Hammer King".
HAMMER KING may lead you on here or there, but they are dead serious about their music – a polarizing combination of unique craftsmanship and characteristic songwriting.

Heavy Metal is rebellion – simple and clear.

Track Name: Battle Gorse
1. Ten thousand light years, the spores had to fly
Right in the eye of the storm
Out of the centre of black holes they come – and they grow
Deep in the valleys, on top of the hills,
Timid and humid remains
Swallowed and hollowed and taken alive – and they grow

B. Into the mesh
On the edge of thorns

R. Battle Gorse is growing
50 metres high – Battle Gorse
Battle Gorse is growing
Heavy Metal
Battle Gorse

2. Superior death-bringing power plants so
No one will stand the attack
Armies are marching, they're all doomed to die
Falling one by one

B. Into the mesh
On the edge of thorns

R. Battle Gorse is growing
50 metres high – Battle Gorse
Battle Gorse is growing
Heavy Metal
Battle Gorse
Battle Gorse

Solo: both
