We are pleased to present a second track off upcoming HAMMER KING album “King Is Rising”: “Battle Gorse”.
“The King has always been a fan of Jack Finney’s 1955 novel ‘The Body Snatchers’ and of the 1978 movie version featuring Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy and Jeff Goldblum”, singer Titan Fox explains, “in the song ‘Battle Gorse’ we have similar plants, but being tremendously bigger here. One of the faster paced songs on the albums and certainly quite old-school!”
In the meanwhile the first feedback on “King Is Rising” are coming in and they are quite encouraging.
