Swedish metallers HAMMERFALL are fully recharged and back with a vengeance after taking a creative break last year. Entering a new chapter of the HAMMERFALL story, (r)Evolution will be released on August 27th in Sweden, the 29th throughout Europe, September 1st in the UK and the 2nd in North America via Nuclear Blast.

With (r)Evolution the band takes things back to the roots in many ways, as they once again worked with producer Fredrik Nordström, who helmed their two milestone releases Glory To The Brave and Legacy Of Kings during the band’s early years and thus has taken a major part in the development of HAMMERFALL. The music was recorded in guitarist Oscar Dronjak’s Castle Black Studios in March and April. Then singer Joacim Cans went to the United States for vocal recordings, once again working with James Michael (SCORPIONS, MOTLEY CRUE), who also did a great job on the predecessor, Infected. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd in Studio Fredman.

Another reunion of sorts takes place with cover artist Andreas Marschall, the “father” of HAMMERFALL’s mascot Hector, who has been with the band since the very first album and is once again included on the front cover of (r)Evolution. The beautiful artwork features all the traits that made the Andreas Marschall HAMMERFALL covers so beautiful and special.

On July 18, 2014 the hymn-like track "Bushido" will be released as the first single track – digitally as well as on vinyl. The song sums up the band and its history perfectly, as in Japanese bushido means “the way of the warrior”.

  • "Hector's Hymn"
