Biography

In 2012 Alestorm mastermind Christopher Bowes founded a new power metal band inspired by the mysterious and misty decor of the medieval Scottish Highlands. On their 2013 debut, the concept album ‘Tales from the Kingdom of Fife’, Gloryhammer tells tales of epic battles, fiery dragons, witches and wizards, but always tongue-in-cheek. Their sophomore album ‘Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards’ (2015) adds a sci-fi touch to the narrative of its predecessor. Gloryhammer stands for top power metal entertainment that milks every cliché in the book while totally getting away with it and their most recent outing ‘Legends from Beyond the Galactic Terrorvortex’ (2019) is no exception. In addition to the all-round musicianship of the instrumentalists, vocalist Thomas Winkler provides the icing on the cake: he is not only a true powerhouse, he also possesses the admirable skill of delivering every intentionally ludicrous line with complete and utter abandon.
