In Hoots We Trust!
Symphonic power metal purveyors GLORYHAMMER have released their second single and lyric video, “The Siege Of Dunkeld (In Hoots We Trust)”, cut from their highly-anticipated third studio album Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex – out May 31, 2019 via Napalm Records. Pre-orders for Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortexare now available HERE.
The GLORYHAMMER story tells the legend of the glorious hero Angus McFife, who wages a long war against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax, in order to free the people of the Kingdom Of Fife.
The epic fight of crown prince Angus McFife against evil continues!
At the end of the second GLORYHAMMER album Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards, Planet Earth had been destroyed by the Hootsman, with an explosion so powerful it ripped a hole in the very fabric of spacetime. And yet, Zargothrax was still not defeated, for he managed to use his last shreds of power to escape through the dimensional rift. Vowing to defeat the evil sorcerer, Angus McFife XIII followed him into the portal, with no idea where it might lead…
“The Siege Of Dunkeld (In Hoots We Trust)” is the first part of the third thrilling chapter of the GLORYHAMMER saga and tells what Angus McFife XIII comes upon when escaping the wormhole. Watch the video for “The Siege Of Dunkeld (In Hoots We Trust)”HERE:
The galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince.
GLORYHAMMER‘s new album Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex will tell us the whole story of the most gigantic battle of all time. Until then, we expect to receive more parts of what will end as the best power metal album the galaxy has ever seen. Keep your eyes and ears open!
Zargothrax on the new album:“Oh wow! I know a lot of people have been waiting on this album for what seems like centuries. For the last three years we’ve been working non-stop on it in absolute secrecy, and now it is finally complete! We can’t wait for y’all to hear it…this is the greatest power metal album of all time. HOOTS!”

GLORYHAMMER were founded by Alestorm frontman Christopher Bowes in 2009, who spent the next years gathering an international line-up that suited his idea to create a band based conceptually on the fantasy genre and musically fitting generally into the power metal mould. Both aims were achieved stunningly and their debut album, Tales from the Kingdom of Fife released by Napalm Records in 2013 immediately garnered the band high critical acclaim from critics and fans alike. GLORYHAMMER were able to top this success with their second full-length Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards (2015) and have continued to tour in front of ever growing audiences, performed at all major metal festivals, and have by now been nominated twice by German Metal Hammer as best band in the category “Up & Coming” at the Metal Hammer Awards.
