Yngwie Malmsteen Debuts New Track “(Si Vis Pacem) Parabellum”


“(Si Vis Pacem) Parabellum” is the best kind of Yngwie Malmsteen song: an instrumental one. Freed from the constraints of vocals, Yngwie is able to transcend his worst instincts (i.e., to make cheesy European power metal) and just shred his ass off for nearly six glorious minutes. If you’ve ever thought “Yngwie is a buffoon, why do people like this guy?”, well… this is why.

“(Si Vis Pacem) Parabellum” is the third single (after “Wolves at the Door” and “Relentless Fury”) and de facto title track from Yngwie’s new album, Parabellum. That comes out July 23 via Music Theories Recordings / Mascot Label Group. Pre-order it here.
