STRATOVARIUS, HALFORD Members Added To 'Glorious' Soccer Tribute

More guest musicians have been confirmed to take part in the recording of the song "Glorious", which was written for the upcoming soccer world championship by former HELLOWEEN and current MASTERPLAN drummer Uli Kusch along with Ronny Milianowicz (DIONYSUS) and Joacim Cans (HAMMERFALL). The track will feature Swedish singer Mikeyla as the main vocalist, with special guest appearances by Ralf Scheepers (PRIMAL FEAR), Tobias Sammet (EDGUY), Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN), Oscar Dronjak (HAMMERFALL), Timo Kotipelto (STRATOVARIUS), Nils Kvale (PAGAN'S MIND), Victor Broden (LEANN RIMES), "Metal" Mike Chlasciak (HALFORD, PAINMUSEUM), and Hempo Hilden (JOHN NORUM, GLENN HUGHES). The production is taking place in Sweden April 24-25.

According to Kusch, "'Glorious' is meant to be a song about setting aside your political views, religious beliefs for only one day and stop[ping] the world from turning in something stronger than anything else: football! No matter if you play heavy metal music, pop or rock, we will find a way to unite through this song."
