“KillHammer” marks the 8th release by German power metallers MYSTIC PROPHECY.

After the band was abtle to gain a lot of attention with their song “Ravenlord” being placed on the CD compilations of various magazines such as Rock Hard, Metal Hammer or Rock It!, the band topped all expectations on their co-headlining position on the “Wolfsnächte” tour with Powerwolf last year. Quite often the fans had to face the “SOLD OUT!” sign at the venues of the tour. The tour gave an massive impact on the band and the guys gained many new fans on that tour, especially as it was followed by some outstanding festival shows (e.g., Metalfest, Summer Breeze, NOAF), where MYSTIC PROPHECY once again have proven their qualities as an excellent live band. After the tour is usually before the new album, so after their last open air show in 2012 MYSTIC PROPHECY made their way into the rehearsal room to start working on “KillHammer”. Once again they take no prisoners and straightly hold their course.

Mighty hymns like “KillHammer” or “To Hell And Back” are headbanging essentials and none of these two songs has to hide behind the band hymn “Ravenlord”. But MYSTIC PROPHECY also known for delivering fast and aggressive tracks - this can also be found on the new album with tracks like “Armies of Hell” or “Set The World On Fire”. The musical range of MYSTIC PROPHECY goes from Accept over Judas Priest to thrash metal legends like Exodus or Annihilator.

The press already gives praise to the album like Andreas Schöwe (e.g., Metal Hammer, EMP, Rock It), who writes: “»KillHammer« can be called a killer album already which will hit every fan of melodic heavy metal like a sledgehammer!” .
