SCREAMER, one of Sweden’s most ambitious heavy metal acts, have released their third single from their upcoming full length, entitled “The Traveler”. SCREAMER’s latest offering, “Kingmaker,” is scheduled for release on January 13, 2023 via Steamhammer/SPV.
It’s the physically tangible intensity of their songs, their enthusiasm and their irrepressible drive that has always set SCREAMER apart from other acts. The Swedish band surrounding vocalist Andreas Wikström benefits to no end from their amazing energy in combination with the musicians’ inspiring and diverse songwriting. This rewarding mix has already produced four studio albums and one live recording since 2011.

Like its predecessors, “Kingmaker” sparkles with a wealth of songs in the catchment area of classic heavy metal, the kind that has been an integral part of our lives since the early 1980s. At the same time, SCREAMER skins-man Henri
New songs such as “Renegade”, “Chasing the Rainbow” and “Hellfire” are typical SCREAMER numbers. Says Petersson: “In addition, they show what we are about this time, musically as well as in terms of content. Normally our lyrics are about life on tour, the joys of heavy metal and the life that goes with it.”
However, the unusual, melancholy “The Traveler” is not your typical SCREAMER fare. “‘Kingmaker’ also features socio-critical approaches, for example on “Ashes and Fire”, and fantasy influences on “Sounds of the Night”, which you might refer to as little adventure stories,” adds vocalist Andreas Wikström.
