HAMMERFALL IN THE STUDIO: MORE VIDEO FOOTAGE AVAILABLE

January 6th, 2011

Additional video footage of Swedish heavy metal band HAMMERFALL in the studio (plus other holiday shenanigans) has been posted on HAMMERFALL’s official Video Blog site at www.HAMMERFALL.tv.

The band is currently recording the follow up to 2009’s No Sacrifice, No Victory – which debuted at #38 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart for top new artists – with producer James Michael (Mötley Crüe, Scorpions, SIXX:AM, Meat Loaf).  The as-yet-untitled new album will be released in Europe on May 20th.  A summer release in North America is expected.

Regarding the sound of the new HAMMERFALL songs, guitarist Oscar Dronjak shares: “The new material contains a lot of fresh ways to look at the musical ideas, we’re trying to preserve the essence of what HAMMERFALL is while at the same time updating the execution and approach. Definitely heavier and less straight forward than the previous albums, yet remaining true to what we believe heavy metal is all about.”

HammerFall – NEW ALBUM INFO REVEALED!

November 12th, 2010
HammerFall

HammerFall

In just two weeks, Sweden’s most successful Heavy Metal band HAMMERFALL will enter the studio to record the follow up to their gold album “No Sacrifice, No Victory”. The songwriting is almost finished, and guitarist Oscar Dronjak reveals: “The new material contains a lot of fresh ways to look at the musical ideas, we’re trying to preserve the essence of what HammerFall is while at the same time updating the execution and approach. Definitely heavier and less straight forward than the previous albums, yet remaining true to what we believe heavy metal is all about.”

Expect the unexpected! The quintet also decided to work with a new producer, which is significant since the last four albums have been produced by Charlie Bauerfeind. The choice fell on James Michael, who recently worked with MÖTLEY CRÜE, SCORPIONS, MEAT LOAF and others. James Michael comments: “We are about to make a fantastic album. The band is firing on all cylinders and I am excited to be part of this project.”

Oscar Dronjak explains: “Working with James Michael is going to be very, very exciting. The two Mötley Crüe album James has been involved in (songwriter on “New Tattoo” and songwriter/producer on “Saints Of Los Angeles”) are great, and easily stack up against the classic albums of the 80’s. That, and the fact that HammerFall have used the same producer (Charlie Bauerfeind) since 2002 has me very psyched about this collaboration, it will automatically bring a freshness to the proceedings! A lot of what HF was got refined when we started working with Charlie, and I’m sure we’ll get a similar kind of reaction here. Sort of like a kick in the ass, to get going in the right direction.”

Vocalist Joacim Cans adds another important aspect: “I see James Michael as one of my favorite singers of today and his work with SIXX:AM is simply fantastic. Not only is the album one of the best ever made production-wise, but James also delivers a vocal performance that most singers today are not capable of. James will be the perfect co-producer for us and I really think he will be able to get me up a notch in the vocal department”

The yet untitled record will be released in Europe on May 20th.

Wacken Open Air 2005

October 22nd, 2005

Wacken Open Air 2005
Review By Brat
Good photos by Metaltix (www.metaltix.com)
Not so good ones by Brat
Other photos acknowledged as they appear

What a line-up this year! W:O:A 2005 was to be my biggest and best Wacken festival since my virgin outing in 2002, when I was forced to watch so many half sets because a lot of the bands I wanted to see clashed. Over the years the organisers have improved scheduling immensely from a power/melodic metal perspective with very few power/melodic metal bands clashing by firstly, swapping the positions of the True and Black stages putting the Black stage further from the Party stage; secondly, running the Black stage and Party stage almost simultaneously; and thirdly, running a band competition (Metal Battle) and low profile or relatively new acts on the Wet stage.

For those not familiar with the festival set up of Wacken Open Air, the True and Black stages are the two main stages set side by side and run bands alternately. The True stage usually features melodic, power and old-school bands, while the Black stage usually features the more extreme styles of metal. The Party stage is a smaller outdoor stage set to the far left of the festival area, and in past years, has been dominated with melodic metal. The aptly named Wet stage is in a large tent and in hot conditions resembles a sauna making it somewhat uncomfortable. Ironically, this was the only dry stage this year.
