HAMMERFALL has shared today 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. Watch it (HERE). The track is from their forthcoming album, “Dominion” is 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.

PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW HERE

In 2002, Crimson Thunder yielded the seminal “Hearts On Fire,” and went gold. With 25 million Spotify streams to date, the song notably became a theme for the Swedish Olympic Women’s Curling Team, which led to the band performing the opening ceremony at the European Athletics Championships in front of a global audience of 250 million. In addition to playing everywhere from India to Australia, the group has shared the stage with everyone from Iron Maiden and Rammstein to Dio. 2014 saw (r)Evolution bow at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in addition to topping charts back home.
