Swedish sludge metal/hardcore band Horndal have announced their third full-length, Head Hammer Man, scheduled for release on April 5th through Prosthetic Records. Along with the new album announcement, the group has also delivered the lead single, "Blacklisted", off the upcoming release.

Pre-order Head Hammer Man here.

Speaking on the new album, the band shared the following:

This is by far our our most ambitious album, both musically and lyrically. We started with two questions: 1. Can you make a metal album with sounds inspired by 60's jazz drummers? Apparently! 2. Can that album fit the untold story about when events in our rusted hometown almost started a civil war in Sweden? No, you have to write a book too. So we did.

Regarding the new single the band added:

When the violent Great Strike in 1909 was over, our unsung hero had managed to save his fellow workers jobs and livelihood. But not his own. He was blacklisted all over Sweden and was forced into exile. He fled over the Atlantic with his wife and young children. The music is as heavy and bleak as the lyrics. Even though there is a riff stolen from Sparks in there. You gotta love Sparks.
