HAMMERFALL has shared the lyric video for “(We Make) Sweden Rock” following the world premiere on the big screens at Sweden Rock Festival prior to the band’s performance over the weekend. The track is from their forthcoming album, “Dominion” set for release on August 16th.

HAMMERFALL frontman Joacim Cans comments, “The lyrical content is direct referrals to songs and bands hailing from the north. In the lyric video we took everything a step further and included photos, not only from bands referred to in the lyrics, but from loads of other Swedish bands. It’s kind of a history lesson in Swedish Hard Rock & Metal.”

“The song is a tribute to the Swedish hard rock/heavy metal wonders that have swept the world for the past five decades. Bands from Sweden are tremendously well respected everywhere and we want to shine a light on everyone who helped create this.” adds guitarist Oscar Dronjak .

The video was shot in Belgrade, Serbia, by iCode in early April.

DOMINION  is HAMMERFALL’s eleventh studio album, and second with Napalm Records.  For DOMINION, HAMMERFALL re-teamed with James Michael to do vocals at Red Level Three studios, and Fredrik Nordström of Studio Fredman at Castle Black Studios for the instruments on the powerful 12 song collection.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
