[Photo credit: K. Bengtsson] A sonorous wave takes you on an electrifying ride with HÄLLAS’ second single, “Carry On”. The track is more than just a tiny puzzle piece of the upcoming album, Conundrum, to be physically released on March 20 via Napalm Records. The mystic story of the moon knight draws you into HÄLLAS’ adventure far away from reality and is accompanied by a guitar driven up-tempo melody, designed to stay in your head – forever. The straightforward 70’s rock attitude provides the perfect hypnotizing atmosphere and contains just the right dynamics for you to follow Tommy Alexandersson’s entrancing spells: “carry on, carry on”! The beautifully-designed lyric video for the single picks up the artful cover artwork and creates an indestructible bond with their music right from a shrouded-in-legend parallel world. Drummer Kasper Eriksson states: "In order to make the album as diverse as possible, we felt that we needed to include some elements influenced by something else other than just progressive rock and heavy metal. Apart from being a piece in the bigger, conceptual puzzle that makes Conundrum continue story-wise, we consider this song to a sort-of rock song transformed into a fast, adventurous soundtrack from a world hidden beyond our own reality."
