Mighty German heavy metal/power metal unit Hammer King strike with their brand-new hammering single, “The Devil Will I Do”, together with an official music video! The vigorous song is cut from the band’s upcoming studio album, “König und Kaiser”, set for release on March 22, 2024 via Napalm Records. “König und Kaiser” continues the storyline of the band paying homage to the mighty Hammer King.

With “The Devil Will I Do”, Hammer King unleash another headbanger hit to heat up the anticipation for their next full-length. On König und Kaiser, the band, led by ex-Ross The Boss vocalist Titan Fox, is joined by noteworthy guest features from the likes of The Tribune of labelmates Warkings, with whom Hammer King is heading out on a huge European tour with in March and April 2024.

Hammer King on “The Devil Will I Do”:

“’The Devil Will I Do’ is Hammer King’s tribute to Monty Python’s ‘Holy Grail’, especially the infamous ‘Swamp Castle’ scene. It might just be our most atmospheric video, as well. We have turned a medieval castle’s keep into a realm of shadows, and its church into the temple of the King. We have stepped up 108 stories of height in two days, have provoked a major fire department run and endured temperatures below the freezing point. Enjoy watching this video as much as we did shooting it!
‘The Devil Will I Do’ is an anthem of liberty and resistance. Whatever they demand me to be, the Devil will I do!”

On “König und Kaiser”, Hammer King continue their collaboration with Charles Greywolf (of genre giants Powerwolf), who recorded the new album at Studio Greywolf and produced it together with singer Titan Fox. König und Kaiser was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, infamous for his work with bands such as Amaranthe, Arch Enemy and Volbeat, to name a few. Hammering, fast-running double kick drums meet speed riffing on the 10 new metal hymns, crowned by memorable sing-along choruses that are meant to be sung with a fist raised in the air.

Hammer King on König und Kaiser:

“Welcome to the era of König und Kaiser!
2024 will be a busy year for Hammer King as we are blessed to release our new album, König und Kaiser, at the very beginning of our first big tour. We will join the mighty Warkings for 14 shows through central European countries and will make sure we Hail as many new fans as possible with the King’s mighty Hammer!”
