Yngwie Malmsteen has announced a new solo album, Parabellum.

The new full-length – the virtuoso's 22nd solo offering, and first since 2019's Blue Lightning – is set for a July 23 release via Music Theories Recordings.

You can check out the album's first single – the characteristically intense, light-speed, "Wolves At The Door" – below.

“I always try to push myself on every album I do, and attempt things which are more extreme than previously," Malmsteen said in a statement. "But what has helped this time is that I wasn't able to go on the road because of the pandemic. It meant I could take much longer in the studio, both to write and record. 

"Because I am usually always on tour, which is great, I haven't had the luxury of spending a lot of time working on new music for more than 20 years.  But I suddenly had no pressure at all on that front. And I feel the album has benefited enormously as a result.”

You can check out Parabellum's cover art and track list below.
