Blood Bound is a song by the Swedish Power and Heavy metal band HammerFall, released on January 28, 2005. It was the only single released from their fifth studio album Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken.
The instrumental/karaoke version on the album was linked with a competition where fans could send their version of "Blood Bound" to Nuclear Blast and win a meet and greet with the members of HammerFall on their shows in April 2005.[1]
The artwork was made by Samwise Didier following an original idea by Joacim Cans and Oscar Dronjak.
