1 Hammerfall on Thu 27 May 2010, 00:16


Formed in Göteborg, Sweden, in 1993 by guitarist Oscar Dronjak. Early line-ups included members from In Flames and Dark Tranquillity, most notably Jesper Strömblad, who continued to write songs together with Oscar and singer Joacim Cans despite leaving before the first album was released. "Glory To The Brave" (1997) and "Legacy Of Kings" (1998) cemented the band as the pioneers of modern Eighties heavy metal.

Often credited with bringing back the melodies and honesty in music, the world-wide crusade continued with "Renegade" (2000), an album that generated a breakthrough for HammerFall and metal music in general in the mainstream media in Sweden.

The line-up was now complete with drummer Anders Johansson, formerly of Rising Force fame, Stefan Elmgren on guitar and Magnus Rosén on bass guitar. The latter two joined HF before the release of the inaugural record, with Stefan even being a session player on "Glory To The Brave".

"Crimson Thunder" (2002) was next, followed by a live album and DVD - "One Crimson Night" (2003) - recorded in their home town in front of a capacity crowd. The fifth album, aptly titled "Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken" (2005) further planted the name HammerFall in the minds of households in Sweden, as well as metal fans all over the world. The band's fourth world tour on as many albums was an even bigger success than before, headlining the U.S. for the first time (after supporting Death and Dio in 1998 and 2002 respectively).

Power metal isn't my thing. It's usually pretty cheesy. The video seemed like I was playing Oblivion.
