Swedish heavy metal outfit HAMMERFALL has recently unveiled the artwork and tracklist of the band’s upcoming album, “(r)Evolution”, which will be out on August 29 (Sweden: 27.08., UK: 01.09., USA: 02.09.) via Nuclear Blast.
The music was recorded in guitarist Oscar Dronjak’s Castle Black Studios in March and April. Then singer Joacim Cans went to the United States for vocal recordings, once again working with James Michael (the SCORPIONS, MÖTLEY CRÜE etc.), who also did a great job on the predecessor “Infected”. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd in Studio Fredman.The artwork was created by Andreas Marschall.
HAMMERFAL will release ‘Bushido’ song on July 18 as the first single track – digitally as well as on vinyl. The song sums up the band and its history perfectly, as in Japanese bushido means “the way of the warrior”.
The track listing of »(r)Evolution« will be like this:
1. Hector’s Hymn
4. Live Life Loud
5. Ex Inferis
6. We Won’t Back Down
7. Winter Is Coming
9. Tainted Metal
10. Evil Incarnate
