released April 4, 2013

The artwork was made by Jobert Mello from Brazil; the man behind the album covers of Sabaton, Primal Fear, Hysterica and many more.
Jacob Kaasgaard (Vocals, Keyboards, Composer) and David Sivelind (Guitar and Bass) are both originally from Sweden, but nowadays living in the Philippines.

The drums are played by virtuoso drummer Andy Gentile from Los Angeles, USA. Guest female vocals are sung by Louiebeth Aratan from the Philippines.

The band has been compared to some of the best bands in the Metal industry; here's what some reviewers had to say about the debut album:

“AHFTW” – reviewed in “ROCK METAL ESSENCE” March 2013: Rating 97 out of 100!
(Written by Iacopo Mezzano originally in Italian)

“A Hero For The World is a truly titanic metal work and anchored incredibly solid foundation. First of all, the production here is top notch, crisp and clear. The songwriting of Jacob Kaasgaard is of excellence, varied and always inspired, full of moments of great emotion and epic power.”
“I was absolutely and totally surprised by debut album of A Hero For The World, a product crated with the mastery of veterans although it’s a debut. A disc that has everything from choral, production, songwriting, the vocals, guitars and instruments, to entertain all fans of power, Symphonic, epic and melodic metal. Waiting now to listen and evaluate the possible response of the godfathers Avantasia, I continue to enjoy this album, knowing that it will be really difficult to do better…”

“AHFTW” – reviewed in “FORSAKEN AT THE GATES” February 2013: Rating 9 out of 10!
(Written by Robert Andersson)

“I have listened to a lot of debuts in my days but I think the debut by A Hero For the World is one of the more impressive ones so far.”
“This band has a bright future.”


“AHFTW” – reviewed in “STORMBRINGER” the Austrian Heavyzine, March 2013: Rating 4.5 out of 5!
(Written by Christian Ulbrich originally in German)

“Jacob Kaasgaard has a very special voice that is certainly not like any other, and which will certainly stand out among thousands.”
“If you like well-arranged melodic metal with decent power who will not get around it, give the boys a chance, because as a debut, the Swedes are VERY impressive.”
“Really good I like the seven-minute “Heaven’s Eyes”, which could be on no less than one of the older HELLOWEEN albums and still impresses with an outstanding orchestral outro.”
“A great debut that will always find its way back into the ear canals.”


“AHFTW” – reviewed in “ROCKENCUBA” March 2013:
(Written by Juan Raul originally in Spanish)

“The have a current sound without forgetting the classic parameters of power metal, I like the singer’s voice, he takes risks and does it very well, there are great compositions, they don’t skimp on good guitar solos, keyboards are also present along the 10 songs that make this album”
“It is a great first step, it shows that they are very good musicians, so hopefully this is the beginning of a great career for A Hero For The World, a band that has a lot to say.


“AHFTW” – reviewed in “MetalFinal Ene” February 2013: Rating 5 out of 5!
“Don’t miss this spectacular debut with an awesome force, and the breath of fresh air that contribute to True Metal”


“AHFTW” – reviewed in “SEA OF TRANQUILITY” March 2013: Rating 4 out of 5!
(Written by Scott Jessup)

“A Hero For The World is a stirring new melodic metal album, and as far as first outings go this band shows ample promise in both key areas of song writing and performances.”


“AHFTW” – reviewed in “MY GLOBAL MIND” March 2013: Rating 9 out of 10!
(Written by Travis)

“Everything about it (AHFTW) has such an overwhelmingly positive feeling to it, you can’t help but smile the whole time”
“While I know some will find this album too melodic and too cheesy, for my tastes it is absolutely fantastic, and even with the first five songs there’s very little I would want changed musically. The band comes roaring out of the gates with “We Are Forever”, which presents its chorus right at the start, letting you know you’re in for a ridiculous catchy and epic album.”
“It only gets better with “End Of Time”, the fastest and most epic song on the album, pretty much a power metal classic in the making, with an excellent opening riff, awesome keyboards during the verses, and even some great symphonic elements throughout, while the chorus is even more upbeat and simply unforgettable than on any of the other songs. I feel the last three songs flow together perfectly, as first we have a brief but very beautiful instrumental interlude in “Over Land And Sea”, and that connects nicely into “A Quest For The Brave”, and the main melody of that song feels like a prelude to the big 10 minute finale “One Hope Of Light”. Anyone hoping for a mammoth progressive power metal epic will be disappointed, as instead it’s an incredible 10 minute ballad, highlighted by the vocal interplay between Jacob and Louiebeth, with one singing the main chorus while the other repeats the chorus from “Free Forever”, all the while in the background the music also turns into a call back of that aforementioned song, resulting in one breathtaking moment to end the album with. The early parts of the song are also very memorable, with an excellent build up leading to the spectacular end sequence.”

Track Name: Eternal Shadows
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard
END UP IN HELL, IN HELL

Shot down
Face in the ground
Crack with a sound
Facing the ultimate crime in the world

Shot for the sky
Now fight and they’ll die
Aiming for heaven
now landing in hell, in hell

We wait for the night
For freedom we fight
They’ll remember forevermore
At speed of light
Into the new world we ride
Feel no pain to have lived and to die in vain

Eternal shadows await us
If we don’t stand up and take control
One final battle for heaven
So we won’t end up in hell
End up in hell

Shot down
face in the ground
Now they crack with a sound
Facing the ultimate crime in the world

Fire
burning their eyes
The cost of all lies
Facing the ultimate crime in the world

Time to attack
and we won’t hold back
we’ll fight for freedom
until we die, we die

We wait for the night
For freedom we fight
They’ll remember forevermore
At speed of light
Into the new world we ride
Feel no pain to have lived and to die in vain

Eternal shadows await us
If we don’t stand up and take control
One final battle for heaven
So we won’t end up in hell
End up in hell, in hell
Track Name: Free Forever
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

Once in world’s so far away
Born into a brand new day
Once in world’s so far away

Taken to another land
Brought into a whole new world
Taken to another land

You’re free forever
You are free when all is said and done
Now fly on angel
You will still be flying when I’m gone
Free when all is said and done

Welcome to a paradise
Wake up and believe your eyes
Welcome to a paradise

Taken to another world
Where all dreams in turn come true
Taken to another world

You’re free forever
You are free when all is said and done
Now fly on angel
You will still be flying when I’m gone
Free when all is said and done

We ride eternally
On our wings of destiny
And go now finally
We know it’s not too late

You’re free forever
You are free when all is said and done
Now fly on angel
You will still be flying when I’m gone
Free when all is said and done

You are free forever
You are free when all is said and done
Now fly on angel
You will still be flying when I’m gone
Track Name: Let It Go
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

Never let it go

Light of fiery eyes
Motions in standby
Never-ending hope to be surviving
That today is not the day to die, to die

Once I let it go
I will never know how
I was led onto the right one

I won’t let it go
fight until I die
I am letting you know
I don’t deny
I won’t let it go
Never back down
I am letting you know
I, I will fight for the right

One more day alive
Shadows passing by
Never-ending hope to see tomorrow
A Hero For The World

Once I let it go
I will never know how
I was led onto the right one

I won’t let it go
fight until I die
I am letting you know
I don’t deny
I won’t let it go
Never back down
I am letting you know
I, I will fight for the right
I don’t deny for the right

And all the power I believe in
Live for the one, live for the one
And the right, of all the power you’re deceiving
Look what you find if I leave all behind

Once I let it go
I will never know how
I was led onto the right one

I won’t let it go
fight until I die
I am letting you know
I don’t deny
I won’t let it go
Never back down
I am letting you know
I, I will fight for the right
I don’t deny for the right

Alright

I won’t let it go
I am letting you know
I will never let it go
Track Name: Heaven's Eyes
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

One night when heaven’s stars align
They’re heaven’s eyes
They see through darkness and light
And see tonight
A light divine
In a brand new sky
Watching the bright heaven’s eyes

They see you when there’s nowhere left to go
Nowhere to hide in the shadows
heading right in our way
no return

A war to gain the ultimate control
The key to know your enemy
is to open your eyes

no turning back
we will attack in the dark night
Fight for your life
fight to survive

One night when heaven’s stars align
They’re heaven’s eyes
They see through darkness and light
And see tonight
A light divine
In a brand new sky
Watching the bright heaven’s eyes

A new day of dark shadows has arrived
Never be scared
just rise again and fight for what’s left
of our world

A battle’s won with bloodshed
death and hope
Fight every fight as it is your last night
to live forever

no turning back
we will attack in the dark night
Fight for your life
fight to survive

One night when heaven’s stars align
They’re heaven’s eyes
They see through darkness and light
And see tonight
A light divine
In a brand new sky
Watching the bright heaven’s eyes

One night
when heaven’s eyes
Align to form a light divine
One night
unending hope
To live forever, never dies

No turning back
we will attack in the dark night
Fight for your life
fight to survive

One night

One night when heaven’s stars align
They’re heaven’s eyes
They see through darkness and light
And see tonight
A light divine
In a brand new sky
Watching the bright heaven’s eyes
Track Name: Alive
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

Voices are calling tonight
Sending a message of light
In a world where we don’t know the way
Calls for a hero to show us today

I see you, I hear you
Alive

I see you, I know you’re
Alive

Here in a brand new world
We are free if we’re together
In the light we know
we are alive

Over the mountains and lakes
See how a miracle makes
Silver from water, not from lies
As when oceans of gold blinds the eyes

I see you, I hear you
Alive

I see you, I know you’re
Alive

Here in a brand new world
We are free if we’re together
In the light we know
we are alive
Track Name: End Of Time
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

A Star is the Sign
Telling us when to
Strike in the night

A Kingdom of Light
With power and glory
Honor and pride
Fight for our lives

To the end

We will defend our Rights
On to the end of time

We are One
We are Strong
Leading On
To be Free
They will See
No more Light
No more Life
End of Time

Time’s running out
Faster and Faster
The message is loud

We will be brave
Fighting to save the world
We’ll transcend
on to the end

End of time

We will defend our Rights
On to the end of time

We are One
We are Strong
Leading On
To be Free
They will See
No more Light
No more Life
End of Time
Track Name: Over Land And Sea
(Instrumental)
Track Name: A Quest For The Brave
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

I came over land and sea
Sentenced for heresy
treason and murder
Yet no one had died, yet

I was there for the turn of the worlds
I’ve seen forces of west and east unite

To sacrifice a life
Never know if it’s real
On to a glory ride
Into a world to see

One day will come
To be free in the light
Free from the fight
Hero for the world
Saving the sky
From the eternal shadow’s night

I came to fulfill my call
Destined to win or fall
Now standing as one
united we ride
To the battle of reality
Starting a war for freedom now

To sacrifice a life
Never know if it’s real
On to a glory ride
Into a world to see

One day will come
To be free in the light
Free from the fight
Hero for the world
A quest for the brave
A hero to save the world
Track Name: One Hope Of Light
Music & Lyrics: Jacob Kaasgaard

For the world
I will go
Into a brand new horizon
There’s no fear in my footsteps anymore

I lead the charge
to the sign
Of eternal salvation
A journey to, where no man has gone before

I sacrifice my life
Never know if it’s real
On to a glory ride
Into a world to see

One hope of light
To be free in every way
Now a hero’s come to save us
Hero for the world
We will live another day
Now a hero for the world has come

When the sun rises in the west
and sets in the east
Would you know time has run out
to make a change

When all rivers run dry
when all life enters the shadows
Would you know
know that the new world has come

To sacrifice a life
Never know if it’s real
On to a glory ride
Into a world to see

One hope of light
To be free in every way
Now a hero’s come to save us
Hero for the world
We will live another day
Now a hero for the world has come

When all rivers run dry
when all life enters the shadows
Would you know
know that the new world has come

I sacrificed my life
Free in every way
We will all die
Die

One hope of light
To be free in every way
Now a hero’s come to save us
Hero for the world
We will live another day
Now a hero for the world has come

Free Forever
Now fly on angel
You will still be flying when I’m gone
Free when all is said and done
