HammerFall is a power metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. I actually saw these guys play ProgPower last year. I have to say that they put on a really good set. If any of you play WOW, Samwise Didier, the guy that painted several of their album covers, is also the Art Director of Blizzard Entertainment. As tribute to the band, in the game, there is a Horde town in the Arathi Highlands zone named Hammerfall.
I'm afraid that this will be a band that won't win anyone over if they aren't already a power metal fan. If that's you, then you should know that there will probably be something completely different tomorrow.....However if you DO like power metal, and are thinking about going to ProgPower this year, PLEASE read that post that I keep linking and get in contact with me....And yes, I will continue to whore this out every time the opportunity presents itself. I want to win free Gold Badge/VIP tickets to ProgPower for life!
First up is Blood Bound from one of their best albums, Chapter V (Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken).
Next is the title track from their 2000 album, Renegade.
And here's A Legend Reborn, which is another song off of Renegade.
And finally, here is Any Means Necessary, from their 2009 album, No Sacrifice, No Victory.
Actually, I was going to end it there; but I just saw that they're planning on releasing a new album, Infected, in May. This is the first single, One More Time. Personally, I'm not too impressed. I'm hoping the rest of the album is better.
