On kyllä väsähtänyt levy* :| ehkä tällä nyt tuolla loppupäässä on ne pari ihan hyvää biisiä, että uran pohjakosketus No Sacrifice No Victory 1 & ½ (yksi oikea ja yksi instrumentaali häävejä since 2009, se ei taida siitä paraneta) sellaisilla ohitetaan, niukasti.

*Sonatat taas tekivät sinällään samoin, että edellisille saivat molemmat tarkoituksenmukaisesti menneeseen kurottelemalla muutaman kelpo rallin tehtyä, mutta nyt uutuuksilla haukataan harmauden kaameaa kiveä niin että leuat hajoaa.

HAMMERFALL To Release 'Glory To The Brave - 20 Year Anniversary Edition'

October 7, 2017

When HAMMERFALL released its debut album, "Glory To The Brave", twenty years ago, the five Swedes launched a true heavy metal revival overnight. While the mainstream still concentrated on grunge and the metal scene was dominated by especially black and gothic acts, this traditional metal record was like a godsend and heralded a new era. "For us, the immense success was a real shock in the beginning," singer Joacim Cans remembers, because suddenly, HAMMERFALL were considered to be the saviors of true metal. They received countless rave reviews from magazines, Wacken Open Air booked the band at prime time on the main stage, Kai Hansen invited the band personally to join as support on the GAMMA RAY tour and the CD entered the German album chart at the amazing position of No. 38 — an unbelievable achievement during this time.

"Our advantage was that no one has expected us and our album. We only did what we wanted and felt compelled to do," Cans says.

This passion was not least influenced by German metal acts like ACCEPT, HELLOWEEN and STORMWITCH but also by other underdogs like WARLORD and PICTURE.

"I'm still very proud of this album; it has turned our lives upside down," the vocalist sums up, and is equally proud of the extensive re-release of the cult album, which will be madea available on December 1. The re-release includes the completely remastered version of "Glory To The Brave", a radio edit of the legendary title track as well as the great cover version of the STORMWITCH classic "Ravenlord". The bonus CD will include six live versions of "The Metal Age", "Steel Meets Steel", "Stone Cold", "Glory To The Brave", "Hammerfall" and "The Dragon Lies Bleeding", as well as a medley from numerous tracks off of their first-class debut album, which was recorded live this year at a show in Berlin.

In addition to this, the double CD will also be enhanced by a bonus DVD containing the first chapters of their "The First Crusade" documentary, which was originally published on VHS, as well as four new, historically edited interview chapters plus a live recording of their Dynamo Open Air show at Eindhoven in 1998. It will be available as a digipak in an attractive box set, including a booklet containing detailed liner notes, many photos from the private archives of the musicians as well as magazine reports, flyers, posters and much more. Besides the 2-CD/DVD, you can also purchase the audio part separately, which includes bonus tracks as a double-vinyl in various colors.

There has been no other album that was quite as important for the development of heavy metal in the nineties and now, the milestone will be published in a comprehensive deluxe edition that leaves no wish unfulfilled!

"Glory To The Brave - 20 Year Anniversary Edition" will be released with brand-new cover artwork and is now available for pre-order.

Uusi, oikea video :D olin tuolla paikalla kun kuvasivat ja vaikka itse keikka oli ehkä parhain näkemistäni HF-vedoista, osuvien 1998-2005 valintojen vuoksi (Hero's Return!), niin tätä biisiä livetilanne ei parantanut. Pikemminkin tuosta festarin alueelta bändin paitojen perusteella kasatusta porukasta tuli mieleen Tarotin hampaitakiristyttänyt kuorosota-performanssi Tuskassa silloin joskus.

Dominion ilmestyy 16.8. Built To Lastista 3 vuoden takaa ei voi kuin parantaa!

HAMMERFALL to Release 'Live! Against The World' Album In October

August 11, 2020

https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/hamme ... n-october/

Swedish metallers HAMMERFALL will release a new live album, "Live! Against The World", on October 23 via Napalm Records.

With an absolutely impressive, grand live production, huge arenas and overwhelming pyro shows, HAMMERFALL took over the world in 2019/2020 with its "World Dominion" tour. Now, they make their splendor available to every Templar around the globe. Recorded on February 15 at the MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany, "Live! Against The World" contains songs fresh off HAMMERFALL's latest album, "Dominion", mixed with a ton of band classics and a hand-picked selection of songs that rarely appear on HAMMERFALL's setlists to fulfill the needs of both new and old fans.

HAMMERFALL did not only celebrate the great chart success of "Dominion", but also the 20th anniversary of its "Renegade" album with a phenomenal medley during the nearly two-hour-long concert. The show had everyone on their feet and banging their heads within no time and marks one of the many unforgettable evenings of pure Swedish heavy metal in the legendary HAMMERFALL manner.

Singer Joacim Cans comments: "I am so damn proud that we are able to present a full blown, up-to-date, live show in these extremely difficult times. A time when real live shows in front of a 'real' live audience have ceased to exist.

"The show at MHP Arena Ludwigsburg was nothing but epic and really captured the strength and power of the band as a live act and shows the joy we are experiencing together on stage every night, no matter where we play. This is the biggest stage production we ever had and now you can experience this at home anywhere, at any time.

"HAMMERFALL is and always will be a live band and together with the greatest fans in the world we are an unstoppable force!”

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak adds: "The live act that HAMMERFALL is right now blows everything we have done previously out of the water, and I am super happy that we got to document it in this way on the biggest tour we have ever done.

"The setlist speaks for itself — every album is represented with at least one song; there's stuff we have never performed live before, songs we haven't played in a long time and of course all the classics. It's a great testament to where we stand today, and an added bonus is that we finally got to record something major in Germany, in front of the fans who have been with us literally since day one."

"Live! Against The World" starts off with the smashing song and first single "Never Forgive, Never Forget", fresh from "Dominion". The Swedish heavy metal institution presents itself in top shape and starts the show in Ludwigsburg, Germany with a big bang — they take the screaming templars by storm. This absolutely impressively produced live version of one of their biggest new hits marked one of the highlights of the legendary show at the MHP Arena. Adding in classics like "Any Means Necessary", "Last Man Standing" and "Let The Hammer Fall" that show off HAMMERFALL's legendary prowess on both vocals and instruments, the performance continues on to be both surprising and astounding. Special guest Noora Louhimo (BATTLE BEAST) made it possible for HAMMERFALL to display their emotional side with their power ballad "Second To One" live on stage. The show ends with the one song that belongs in every HAMMERFALL experience: the beautiful and heavy "Hearts On Fire".

"Live! Against The World" will be available in the following formats:

HF on julkaisemassa Renegadesta 20-vuotispainoksen, covidin vuoksi vuoden myöhässä. Ja kutsuvat jostain syystä Fredrik Nordströmin uudelleenmiksauksia 2.0 -versioiksi. Johan sillä 2007 Steel Meets Stell best of:illa oli bändin klassinen nimikkokappale myös 2.0:ksi nimettynä, mutta se oli uudelleenäänitys. Tämä 2000 albumin top-3 biisi a Legend Rebornin ja Raise The Hammerin kanssa on Wackenista:
