Even though “Kingdom of the Hammer King” is their debut album, HAMMER KING’s members are no novices.  Singer Titan Fox  is known for being the lead vocalist of ROSS THE BOSS’ solo project (and also IVORY NIGHTS), and drummer Herr Schmitt  is the former drummer of Germany’s Top-Ten Rockoutfit SALTATIO MORTIS. What emerges from the gathering of these stalwart metal musicians is a slab of traditional, epic power-metal in the best Teutonic tradition!

Expect an album with plenty of melodies, epic choruses and galloping guitars produced with a clean, brilliant sound  by the excellent Charles Greywolf (of POWERWOLF fame) in his own studio.

Kingdom of the Hammer King” will see the light in the first half of 2015 in compact disc, vinyl (with one bonus track) and digital editions.  You can already have a taste of HAMMER KING by listening to the album’s title track here:

Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash):I like to think there is a little bit of Metal in everything Wishbone Ash does. If I were to recommend one Heavy Metal band to listen to, it would be HAMMER KING

Ross The Boss:”Hammer King is the real deal. Power Metal at its best!

Indeed, all fans of the “Last Caress of Light” will find in Darkest Era‘s latest work a matured band that really feels comfortable having reached the top of their game. With a sound described as “a collision between Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Primordial” – thanks again Last Rites!-, the band is ready to hit 2014 like a storm, first with the release of “Severance”, and then with a UK tour planned for late September 2014.
