GLORYHAMMER about “Keeper Of The Celestial Flame Of Abernethy”:
„This tale begins long in the past, 1000 years before even Angus McFife was born. A simple peasant by the name of Zargothrax lived a peaceful existence weaving baskets in a village called Auchtermuchty, until the legendary hero Dundax decided to build a new Kingdom in his lands…the Kingdom of Fife. Follow the rise of Zargothrax into a twisted sorcerer of chaos and evil, as he seeks the ultimate revenge on the Prince of Fife and all his descendants!“
In the not-too-distant Kingdom of Fife lives a band like no other. GLORYHAMMER embodies the essence of Power Metal and epic fantasy, with a sound so majestic and grandiose that it can only be the work of the gods themselves. Led by the manifestation of extreme trumpet mayhem in Battle Mode, GLORYHAMMER have waged a never-ending battle against the forces of Zargothrax since their inception in 2010.
With their soaring hyper melodies, countless orchestral explosions and thundering nano-guitar riffs, they have become the undisputed champions of the power metal scene and have legions of fans from across the galaxy with their epic tales of intergalactic warfare, cosmic sorcery and heroic deeds attracted. Four years have passed since the band’s last release, but the wait is finally over as another massive onslaught of power metal awesomeness follows.
Traveling back to Fife, Return to the Kingdom of Fife begins with trumpeting horns leading them into battle before veering straight into Holy Flaming Hammer of the Unholy Cosmic Frost, which tells the story of the lost kingdom’s reclaiming told with the help of the powerful and majestic Holy Flaming Hammer. But after the devastating War of Dundee, the evil wizard reduced the entire kingdom to rubble and created the nuclear wasteland “Imperium Dundaxia”. The mighty Hootsman and his warriors traverse the contaminated kingdom on nuclear motorcycles as the Wasteland Warrior Hoots Patrol to fight goblins and control the land’s law. Grandmaster Proletius leads his “Brothers of Crail” to fight together and defeat the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. Brave Prince Angus McFife rises to the challenge and gathers warriors from across the land to fight in the name of Fife Eternal! On their journey, the mighty heroes must traverse the dwarf caves and defeat the “Sword Lord of the Goblin Horde” to pave the way to recovering the legendary weapon, the “Vorpal Laser Blaster of Pittenweem”… but our heroes arrive too late because the weapon was stolen by a great force of evil! The great journey culminates when the evil sorcerer and master of nightmares, Zargothrax wields dire power as the “Guardian of the Celestial Flame of Abernethy” and the band of mighty warriors in Maleficus Geminus (Colossus Matrix 38B – Ultimate Summoning of the Binary Thaumaturge )” comes together in a last-ditch attempt to defeat the evil dual wizards of the Kingdom of Fife.
This is an album for the ages – Power Metal shines brighter than ever on the thrilling and action-packed Return to the Kingdom of Fife!”
GLORYHAMMER about the album:
“Hoots! We are proud to teleport you all to as-of-yet unknown mountaintops of extreme-trumpet-confoundry with this new opus! Several orchestras were maimed during the production process, which we think reflects adequately in the hyper-sonic nano-recordings we have inscribed on disc for you to peruse. Many battles await!”
