Hammerfall is celebrating the 50th birthday of guitarist and vocalist Oscar Dronjak with a new single "Venerate Me" featuring King Diamond on vocals. The single also doubles as the second single off their coming record Hammer Of Dawn due out February 25.
"The second single is here, and I’m very, very proud of it!" said Dronjak. "The music was written during the darkest, most uninspiring days of the pandemic and still came out as one of the strongest on the whole album. Joacim's fantastic lyric idea makes this track really stand out, and the special guest appearance towards the end really pushes it over the edge!"
"The song is over loaded with enchanting melodies and a very catchy chorus," said vocalist Joacim Cans. "Lyrically one of my greatest efforts dealing with the fact that we die twice! First when we take our last breath and second when someone says your name for the last time. Say my name and I will never die!"
Pre-orders for Hammer Of Dawn are available here.
