In 2023 HAMMERFALL are celebrating the success of Crimson Thunder achieving Platinum status in Sweden. Continuing their retrospective series, the band will be releasing their very own 20-Year Anniversary edition via Nuclear Blast on April, 28th.
Their fourth studio album has been remixed and remastered by Fredrik Nordstrom, and this definitive version will include previously unreleased pre-production tracks, a brand-new medley and live acoustic songs.
Now the band presents a brand new lyric video for their old classic ´Riders Of The Storm´, in remixed and remastered version. Check it out below.
Frontman Joacim Cans comments on the song:
“This mid tempo, riff based song instantly became a live hit for both the band and the fans. I just love it when the crowd starts to jump in the beginning when the beat kicks in! Even though the lyrical theme is a bit on the dystopian side there is a positive vibe and energy, with a feeling of hope, within the music. A feeling of hope that eventually also can be found in the lyrics.”
The lyric video is created using the illustrations from the Crimson Thunder comic book which comes included with the vinyl formats.
