HAMMER KING are back with a brand-new bombastic full-length full of true headbanger hits! The new offering, entitled "König und Kaiser", continues the storyline of the band paying homage to the mighty Hammer King, and is set for release on March 22, 2024 via Napalm Records. HAMMER KING, led by ex-Ross The Boss vocalist Titan Fox, was formed in 2015 and has captured the scene with their five previous offerings and live performances, among others at Summer Breeze Open Air following their last album, the massive 2022 release Kingdemonium. On "König und Kaiser" the band is joined by noteworthy guest features from the likes of The Tribune (of labelmates WARKINGS), with whom HAMMER KING is heading out on a huge European tour with in spring 2024.
Hammering, fast running double kick drums meet speed riffing on the 10 new metal hymns, crowned by memorable sing-along choruses that are meant to be sung with a fist raised in the air. On "König und Kaiser", HAMMER KING continue their collaboration with Charles Greywolf (of genre giants POWERWOLF), who recorded the new album at Studio Greywolf, and produced it together with singer Titan Fox. "König und Kaiser" was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, infamous for his work with bands such as Amaranthe, Arch Enemy and Volbeat, to name a few. The album artwork is once again by Péter Sallai.
With "König und Kaiser", HAMMER KING presents yet another powerful album that is sure to cement the band’s standing in the scene. Join HAMMER KING in worshiping the Hammer King!"
