Frontman Joacim Cans comments:

“The lyrical content is direct referrals to songs and bands hailing from the north. In the lyric video we took everything a step further and included photos, not only from bands referred to in the lyrics, but from loads of other Swedish bands. It’s kind of a history lesson in Swedish Hard Rock & Metal.”

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak adds:

“The song is a tribute to the Swedish hard rock/heavy metal wonders that have swept the world for the past five decades. Bands from Sweden are tremendously well respected everywhere and we want to shine a light on everyone who helped create this.”

Pre-order:

Then, the group will hit the road with Sabaton for a fall North American tour; HammerFall will headline off-dates from that run. Cities for an early 2020 European tour have also been announced. More dates are in the works.
