Power Metal


United Kingdom


Did you know that Christopher Bowes, in addition to his life as a pirate who roams the seven seas, also has a secondary career as a wizard? In 2012 the Alestorm mastermind 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 ‘Tale 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. Work is currently underway on album number three. Gloryhammer stands for top power metal entertainment that milks every cliché in the book while totally getting away with it. Like no other, Gloryhammer combines musicianship with humour and crowd interaction. A Gloryhammer gig is always a memorable occasion so come and watch them ply their dark trade on stage at GMM2019. Hoots! (#GMM19)
