Directed by 11 Frames Productions, the video for “Hector’s Hymn” – the opening track to (r)Evolution, the ninth studio album by Swedish heavy metallers HAMMERFALL due out in North America on September 2nd – is now available.
For the uninitiated, Hector – a Templar of Steel – is HAMMERFALL’s hammer-wielding mascot and has graced the covers of eight studio albums, all of which are featured in the music video.
(r)Evolution was produced by Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, SOILWORK, OPETH), who also helped produce the first two HAMMERFALL albums, 1997’s Glory To The Brave and 1998’s Legacy Of Kings. Album artwork is by German artist Andreas Marschall (BLIND GUARDIAN, KREATOR, IMMOLATION).
