Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken is the fifth studio album by the Swedish metal band HammerFall and was released in 2005 through Nuclear Blast. It features the track “Knights of the 21st Century”; the band’s longest studio recording to date at 12 minutes and 20 seconds.

The album’s title was inspired by the family motto of the fictional House Martell of Dorne from the fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, as were the names 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.
