Bass player Karl Johansson remembers the day of the shoot: “It was a freakin’ fun day ´shooting this music video! Patric Ullaeus is such a great guy and a true professional. The whole area where we were filming was beautifully spooky and super cold hahahaha”.
Nick Johansson (guitar) adds: “I think this song (We Will Rise) will be perfect to use as our first single because it contains all the musical elements that represent TUNGSTEN. It’s guitar driven and heavy but, still melodic and somewhat mystical.”
Anders Johansson (drums): “There are so many bands today playing great stuff but often they tend to sound a bit similar. We wanted to be a bit different, to break through the media noise. We adapted a vibe that we think is a bit special for this song. Using Patric, that I personally worked with before for a HammerFall video recording (One more time), was the obvious choice. He is full of energy and ideas.”
Mike Andersson (vocals): “This was one of the last songs composed for the album. I was totally in a trance when I listened to it the first time after receiving it from Nick (who wrote the song). It was such a great feeling to write the lyrics and work with the vocals. The intro is so mystical and enchanting… ´choosing this song as first single was a unanimous decision.”
