Watch the original Wacken 2001 cut here:

21 years ago, the Swedish Heavy Metal powerhouse Hammerfall, traveled to Nashville to record their third album with legendary producer Michael Wagner, leaving the safe space that was Studio Fredman in Göteborg. Fredrik Nordström had recorded the two previous records, so naturally, that was a huge change for the band. The Wagner experience and the “Renegade” album turned out great, as we all know today.

For this anniversary edition, the band felt that they needed to close the circle and have Fredrik remix the “Renegade” album. The result is “Renegade 2.0” which will be released via Nuclear Blast Records on November 12th in many beautiful formats and with a brand new album artwork made by famous cover artist Andreas Marshall, which makes every Hammerfall fan heart beats faster!

Ever since the release of their debut album, “Glory To The Brave“, in 1997, Hammerfall dropped jaws everywhere they went. 3 years and one album (“Legacy Of Kings“, 1998) later, Swedish heavy metal saviors Hammerfall released what would be their international breakthrough and first number one record in their native: “Renegade“. Songs like the title track, the ballad “Always Will Be“, the ferocious opening track “Templars Of Steel“ or the pummeling “The Way Of The Warrior“ made the album the landmark release that it is today. From then on out Hammerfall kept rising through the ranks, becoming an institution in the metal world, and are responsible for the revival of traditional heavy metal in the post-grunge music scene. Almost 30 years, countless tours around the globe, and 11 albums in, Hammerfall are still going strong, being one of the most successful heavy bands to ever come out of Sweden.
