HAMERFALL: Photos From 'Blood Bound' Video Shoot Posted Online

HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"[The new HAMMERFALL single] 'Blood Bound' will be released in just two weeks, so it's time to unveil some still pictures from the video. We are frozen in ice in the beginning of the clip, standing on top of the hammer from the cover.

"As you can see, the environmental atmosphere is comparable to that of the 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy and 'Day After Tomorrow'. The video clip is produced by Roger Johansson and directed by him and Alex Hansson, who also has been the VFX-supervisor. Daniel Tegeland and Mattias Söderholm are responsible for the 3D animations. These are more or less the same guys who have done all our videos since 'Renegade', and you'll see what an outstanding job they have done this time, as well. The mood fits the music perfectly, and looks very impressive!

"Wednesday night, if you live in Sweden, you got to hear the single on the radio for the very first time. Also, Stefan, Magnus and I participated in a charity event for the flood victims, playing 'Rock You Like A Hurricane' (SCORPIONS) and 'Balls To The Wall' (ACCEPT) with Kristoffer Göbel from FALCONER and Snowy Shaw from DREAM EVIL. Among other represented bands/artists were Mikkey Dee, Håkan Hellström, and MUSTASCH.

"All the money went directly to the Red Cross, and everyone — from door men to bartenders to performers — worked for free. It felt really good to do something like this, and since the place was sold out I think the organizers managed to raise a pretty penny to help with the rebuilding in East Asia."

As previously reported, HAMMERFALL will release their new album, "Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken", on March 7 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Crimson Thunder" was produced and mixed by Charlie Bauernfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HELLOWEEN).
