Gloryhammer display superhuman strength in new music video

Gloryhammer by Robert Zembrzycki

UK symphonic power metal heroes Gloryhammer are readying their newest effort, an LP titled Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex, due to drop on May 31st through Napalm Records. Today, the band have released an official clip for the album’s first single, “Gloryhammer,” which you can watch below.

Here’s what keyboardist Christopher Bowes had to say about the song / video, “Mighty warriors of the galaxy! Are you ready to raise up your laser powered goblin smasher to defeat the forces of Zargothrax? Then it’s time to watch the video for our new single… simply called “Gloryhammer”! In this song, Angus McFife has arrived into a terrible alternate universe ruled by the evil wizard Zargothrax… and to make matters worse, his legendary Hammer of Glory is powerless! His only hope is to fly into space and recharge the hammer with the power of astral fire… if his quest fails, then the forces of evil led by the deathknight Ser Proletius will rain down nuclear fire upon the brave resistance fighters of the Kingdom of Fife. The tragic fate of the Kingdom of Fife hangs in the balance once more…”

Regarding their impending third record, Bowes added, “Oh wow! I know a lot of people have been waiting on this album for what seems like centuries. For the last three years we’ve been working non-stop on it in absolute secrecy, and now it is finally complete! We can’t wait for y’all to hear it…this is the greatest power metal album of all time. HOOTS!”
