CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is pleased to announce the release of HAMMER KING’s second album “King Is Rising”!
Recorded at POWERWOLF’s “Studio Greywolf” , “King Is Rising” 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.
“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”.
The second chapter of the Hammer King’s saga thematically centers about war and revolt, while the King’s battle stories drastically bespeak today’s global crises.
For the album’s artwork, the band decided to set up again a partnership with brilliant German artist Timo Würz and the result speaks for itself: Timo is the kind of artist who guarantees quality in every aspect of his job!
“King Is Rising” will be released on November 11, 2016 through Cruz Del Sur Music on Compact Disc (with 1 bonus track), Vinyl and Digital.
The album will have its release party on November 12, at Cruz Del Sur Music own’s “Burn This Town” Festival in Rome, also featuring Sacred Steel, Rosae Crucis, Battle Ram and Graal.
