NHL team Minnesota Wild announced that for the running season their intro song will be Hammerfall's "Fury Of The Wild".

On the other side, Hammerfall's frontman, Joakim Cans, said: "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.

"Panzer' will be a perfect live song 'cause of its intense beat, guitar crunch and the hypnotic chorus! Traditional metaheads might not expect a track like this from us, but the record has a wide range from classical Accept/Priest metal up to speed metal/Motorhead influences — so this track sure stands out with its intensity!"

17/10/2014 - BILLY CORGAN: BACK TO THE SOUND OF "SIAMESE DREAM"
Billy Corgan has posted a new blog on SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com: Ok, so we’ve got this new jam, but I can’t tell you the title ’cause it’s too good; and somebody will steal it. CALX? I’ve no fear…So for now we’ll call the song COMFORTABLY DUMB. And if Shredder’s enthusiasm is any indicator, we’ve finally turned the corner into making the record we’d like to make. COMFORTABLY DUMB *sounds* like it should be on SIAMESE DREAM, and done that way I’d be accused (as I tend to be accused) of ‘ripping myself off’ (IE listening to my old work to find new inspiration).
