Fury of the Minnesota Wild
The players of the NHL team Minnesota Wild began the 2014-15 season extremely well with two shut-outs against the Colorado Avalanche, and they will get a special heavy metal HammerFall welcome at all the home games at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
"When we first discovered the song Fury Of The Wild by HammerFall, it was like a gift because everything about it fits so well to what we try to do for Game Presentation," states Minnesota Wild team representative Paul Loomis."The energy, the drive, and of course just having Wild in the title makes it a perfect fit. And for the band to go out of their way to make an instrumental version for us to use as part of the player intros, I cant tell you how appreciative members of the State of Hockey are towards HammerFall!
Singer Joacim Cans comments on the alliance with Minnesota Wild:
It's a tremendous honor to have a team in the NHL use one of our songs as their intro, and Minnesota is a great fit due to the Scandinavian heritage of many of the state's inhabitants. We always felt heavy metal and hockey was a great mix, and this is the ultimate proof. The State of Hockey has got new fans in the Templars of Steel!
The next Minnesota Wild home game at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, is against the Arizona Coyotes on October 23rd. Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster.
Watch Swedish defensemen Jonas Brodin & Christian Folin, forward Mikael Granlund of Finland, Minneapolis own Zach Parise, and other stars of the Minnesota Wild as they take to the ice with HammerFalls Fury Of The Wild blasting in the arena! It's gotta be experienced!
