Power Metal is Good, Power Metal is Great: Gloryhammer Wrote a Song About a Literal Glorious Hammer
Gloryhammer have just released a song called “Gloryhammer.” Usually when a band titles a song or album after themselves it signifies super serious business, a grand artistic statement of definitive intent.
But this song is literally about a glorious, very powerful hammer. More than five minutes of it, complete with expensive-looking CGI effects. I’d be tempted to suggest that the hammer is a metaphor for something, perhaps even a penis… but nope, I think this song is really about a fucking hammer. In that way, it truly is Gloryhammer’s bold mission statement: what and who are this band, if not everything this song is and what it represents? It doesn’t get any better than this as far as power metal goes!
