Swedish Power Metal act Mad Hatter have released the video for ‘Ignite’, track that will be cherished by the people that met Mad Hatter from their self-titled debut album, fast rhythms and epic riffs that will make you draw a smile, very on brand for bands such as Helloween. ‘Ignite’ is the third single extracted from their new album “Pieces Of Reality”, which will be released through Art Gates Records worldwide on May 22nd. Don’t sleep on them, they’re the future of Heavy Metal.

In words of the band: “This new album has everything you want for a Power Metal-album! It’s fast, catchy, bombastic, melodic and heavy! We wanted to create an album that has all these elements but with our touch of mystery over it. Like if heavy metal was recorded in Wonderland. Fans of Halloween, Freedom Call, Avantasia, Stratovarius and Blind Guardian will enjoy this! The album will then feel more personal for us and I think fans will hear the passion when they listen to the album.” .

Songs like ‘Six Feet Below’, ‘Gomorrah’, ‘Inhuman’ and ‘Upside Down’ are infectious rockers. The first single, ‘Reload’, is a frenetic composition that showcases the musicianship of these accomplished performers. Alter Bridge/Tremonti songwriter Mark Tremonti co-wrote ‘Rectify’ and ‘Call Me The Devil’ and Sevendust‘s Morgan Rose co-wrote ‘Concede’ with Projected.
