We’ve just received a transmission from a distant galaxy regarding the Metal warriors known as Gloryhammer. Though the details need some deciphering, we’ve used an ancient coding method to better convey this to your electronic device of choice. Read on.
The Press Release:
Mighty warriors of the galaxy, GLORYHAMMER, are about to return from another epic quest, and they come bearing their new album, Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex, due out late spring 2019 via Napalm Records! The galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince.
In conjunction with the release of the upcoming new album, GLORYHAMMER will head out on a North American headline tour in late spring, featuring support from Aether Realm! The tour will kick off in Brooklyn, NY at the Knitting Factory on June 4, and will stop in several major cities, coming to an end on June 18 in Austin, TX at Come and Take it Live!

HOOTS!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m almost embarrassed to admit that this band is pretty new to my Mental Media Metal database and I am kind of sad about it since they look like Galactic superheroes and have these crazy names. I am a big fan of spectacle and geeking out which I guess I can attribute to my almost lifelong love of comic books and Science Fiction films. I know that I have a busy June with conventions and a family gathering but if the stars align and the path is clear I will be there to help rally the appearance. You should consider joining me and help the cause save Metal from insidious space born threats. Chime in down below with what you think about the tour and if the band is one that you’ve followed at all before. I’d surely be interested in hearing from you about it so we know what to expect. See you next time.
