In May, 20th, HAMMERFALL is going to release their new album called Infected.  Laying down the foundation themselves in their own studio in Sweden, the band then traveled to Nashville, TN, to finish it up with acclaimed producer James Michael (MÖTLEY CRÜE, SCORPIONS, MEAT LOAF). He also mixed the album, giving it a decisive updated edge without losing anything of the essence of the band. “James helped us create something that was new and exciting while still in the line of our heritage”, Oscar Dronjak, guitar player and founder of the band, explains.

 

“Never before have we sounded this fresh and up to date without losing the essence of what HammerFall is all about: Pure “Infected” Heavy Metal!”, comments vocalist and frontman Joacim Cans.

 

You will experience us like you’ve never done before! We’ve got a lot of fresh influences shining through in the music, but everything you love about HammerFall will still be there“, says Oscar. “This is HammerFall in 2011, the legend has been reborn!”.

 

On March 12th, the album was introduced for the first time to an international group of press people in Göteborg, where the album received a great response. Metal Hammer Spain calls it “the HammerFall of the future“, while British Powerplay Magazine comments: “Infected will have the name HammerFall spreading like a virus. Prepare for an epidemic!”.
