HAMMERFALL vocalist Joacim Cans has teamed up with former Helloween and current Masterplan drummer Uli Kusch to write a song for the upcoming soccer world championship. Entitled "Glorious," the song will feature Swedish singer Mikeyla as the main vocalist, with special guest appearances by Ralf Scheepers (PRIMAL FEAR), Tobias Sammet (EDGUY), Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN) and Oscar Dronjak (HAMMERFALL). The production is taking place in Sweden April 24-25.

In other HAMMERFALL news, on April 14th, Joacim will participate in the TV4 show "Rampfeber" (translation: "Stage Fright"). There, he'll be teaching Uffe Larsson how to sing Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It."

"Rampfeber" features celebrites getting paired up with artists who will try to teach them all aspects in how to perform: everything from choice of stage clothes and stage choreography to how to use their voice the best and impress everyone watching. Following their training sessions, contestants get judged by a jury when they present their act on the show on Friday evenings. The judgees will decide whether the contestant is good enough to qualify for the next round.

jesus roman criminal christ! First this gayass band makes a video with the Swedish Curling
team and now this. What's next a concept album about the life of Bjorn Borg? Or how about
a power metal tribute to hockey.
These dudes are dumber than Ray Stevens.
