Title: “The Sacred Vow” (Single)
Label: Napalm Records
Release Date: 9/9/2016
Genre: Power Metal
The mighty Hammerfall has returned and not only will some new thundering Power Metal come our way with the November release of “Built To Last”, but the band is now a part of the Napalm Records roster of artists. Just the other day the band issued the first single from this release with “The Sacred Vow” and I am happy to report that this is exactly what I expected it to be. A rock solid demonstration of the type of Power Metal that fans have come to love from the likes of Hammerfall. They’ve not moved to the left of center or changed style and instead continued down the warriors path into battle. The guitars are crisp and are driven forward by powerful drumming while singer Joachim Cans rallies us all to their cause. It’s a catchy number that might be fun in the live set so let’s see how the rest of the release sounds when it comes our way in November. See you then.
