Swedish power metallers Hammerfall have released the second single from their upcoming album “Hammer Of Dawn” which will be released on February 25th via Napalm Records. The track is entitled “Venerate Me” and it features a special guest appearance by legendary Danish heavy metal singer King Diamond.

“The second single is here, and I’m very, very proud of it. 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 [Cans] fantastic lyric idea makes this track really stand out, and the special guest appearance towards the end really pushes it over the edge.”

– Oscar Dronjak

“The song is overloaded 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.”

– Joacim Cans
