Recorded at Powerwolf's Studio Greywolf, King Is Rising is once again packed with the truest heavy metal in this and all possible other worlds. It is heavy metal in the tradition of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, crossed with the German power metal of Hammer King's peers. King Is Rising contains 12 metal anthems literally made for live performances with a nod towards faster paced songs compared to debut album Kingdom Of The Hammer King. Thematically, the second chapter of Hammer King's saga pertains to war and revolt, while the King's battle stories drastically bespeak today's global crises. For the album's artwork the band decided to again partner with brilliant German artist Timo Wurz, and the result speaks for itself. Timo is the kind of artist who guarantees quality in every aspect of his job. Hammer King consists of former Ross The Boss vocalist Titan Fox, former Salatio Mortis' drummer Dolph A. Macallan rounded out by K.K. Basement on bass and Gino Wilde on guitars.
