Sea of Tranquility
is the fifth studio album by the Swedish metal band Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken HammerFall. It was released in 2005 through Nuclear Blast. The last track is followed by almost two minutes of silence and a short hidden track (0:15).
The album's title was inspired by the family motto of the fictional
House Martell of Dorne from the series " A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin, as well as the name of the songs "Hammer of Justice," "Take the Black" and "Fury of the Wild". The lyric "Nothing burns like the cold" from "Never, Ever" is taken from the first chapter of A Game of Thrones, the first book in the series.
The cover artwork was created by Samwise Didier.
