Hammerfall enlists King Diamond for new single ‘Venerate Me’

Swedish power metal band Hammerfall has released “Venerate Me,” featuring a guest appearance by King Diamond, the second single from its upcoming 12th studio album, “Hammer of Dawn” (Feb. 25, 2022, Napalm Records; pre-order here).

“The second single is here, and I’m very, very proud of it!” guitarist Oscar Dronjak said. “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!”

Singer Joacim Cans said: “The song is over loaded with enchanting melodies and a very catchy chorus. 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!”

Fans already can look forward to seeing “Hammer of Dawn” live, as in 2022, Hammerfall will go on an extensive co-headlining tour through Europe with German metal stars Helloween.
