“The song itself was originally conceived in Germany on the ‘World Dominion’ tour, with the rest of the work being done at home,” guitarist Oscar Dronjak said of the new track. “I immediately knew it had the potential to be something big, and when Joacim added his vocal melodies we both felt like it would be the perfect single. One with substance and substance. power, but also one that you can’t stop singing when the music fades. “

Regarding the video, singer Joacim Cans commented: “We already had the idea to shoot a video in the legendary Liseberg amusement park 20 years ago. But like any good bottle of champagne, this idea needed some attention. rest and mature before being put into action. And FUCK I’m glad we waited! With director Patric Ullaeus, we’ve created something unique and amazing that wows me every time I look at him. You can really tell we haven’t played together for almost two long, endless years. We’re as energetic as a pack of hungry wolves in the video, ready to shred and deliver the heavy gospel metal !”

HammerFall, lyrics to “Hammer of Dawn”

A lightning
Hammer fight

Once I was lost in the promised land
In search of the spark and the flame
A warrior soul, with a mighty zeal
The hammer next to me, a heart of steel

I can’t pretend, never let it go
Because everything has a price
What you did, what you put me through
Devils incarnate come for you

Revenge is my way to glory
Blood will be shed, hate is the sign
The sign

A lightning
Hammer fight
Dawn of battle
Revenge coming

I’m the demon in your mind
I am the devil you know
No place to hide, so you better run
Or step into my showdown, justice be done

Spread your gospel, wrong and wrong
It’s time to read the writings on the wall
The wall

A lightning
Hammer fight
Dawn of battle
Revenge coming

A lightning
Hammer fight

Now lift the hammer to the sky
It’s your time, live or let die
Under a thousand bright suns
Your final showdown has begun

Hammer of Dawn will lead the way
You live to fight another day
For every battle there is a scar
Tell the story of who you are
