瑞典重金力量金:HammerFall《17CD》1997-2020/FLAC+WV/BD

HammerFall的是瑞典重金属的乐队哥德堡,瑞典。乐队由礼仪誓言吉他手Oscar Dronjak于1993年成立。

早期(1993年至1996年)

节奏吉他手Oscar Dronjak退出仪式誓言并邀请JesperStrömblad(来自Ceremonial Oath and In Flames)与他作为鼓手一起参加他已经考虑了一段时间的新音乐项目时,成立了HammerFall 。Dronjak已经创作了歌曲“ Steel Meets Steel”,后来被收录到HammerFall的首张专辑中。Dronjak和Strömblad随后由首席吉他手Niklas Sundin,贝斯手Johan Larsson和歌手Mikael Stanne加入。次年Niklas Sundin和Johan Larsson离开HammerFall时,GlennLjungström(当时是In Flames的吉他手))和弗雷德里克·拉尔森(Fredrik Larsson)(前瑞典死亡金属乐队Dispatched的负责人)取代了他们。

当时所有五名成员都在其他乐队中演奏。Dronjak和Larsson参加了“ 水晶时代” ; Strömblad和Ljungström在“ In Flames”中演出,Stanne为“ 黑暗宁静”演唱。这两个乐队都影响了瑞典旋律的死亡金属。HammerFall沦为他们所有人的副业几年了。他们的音乐会主要限于当地的音乐比赛Rockslaget。乐队自己的歌曲很少,主要演奏了Pretty Maids,Judas Priest和Alice Cooper等乐队的封面。

1996年,HammerFall进入了Rockslaget的半决赛。当Mikael Stanne无法在半决赛中与乐队一起演出时,他们找到了Joacim Cans,后者同意与他们一起过夜。尽管法官取消了HammerFall进入决赛的资格,但音乐会还是取得了成功。到当天结束时,Joacim已经成为乐队的正式成员。

荣耀归功于国王的勇敢与传承(1997–1999)

为了让他们更多地了解他们的作品并寻求专业唱片唱片的交易,他们录制了一场简短的现场表演并将其发送给荷兰唱片公司Vic Records。音乐家很快获得了一笔交易,并在接下来的一年中花了整整时间写专辑Glory to the Brave。该专辑最初在荷兰发行,并获得了积极的反馈。这也是值得注意的是,乐队的吉祥物中,圣骑士赫克托,首次出现在这张专辑的封面。

随着HammerFall的流行,乐队成员献身于其他项目的时间变得有限。Dronjak和Cans想走HammerFall的道路(Dronjak的《水晶时代》已经不复存在了),但Strömblad和Ljungström致力于《 In Flames》,而Larsson致力于the 废金属乐队None。因此,HammerFall的阵容很快发生了变化。Stefan Elmgren担任首席吉他手,PatrikRäfling担任鼓手(在Glory发行Glory后,他们于1997年底加入乐队),Larsson决定留在乐队中,直到找到适合他的替代者。这发生在1997年5月,当时贝斯手MagnusRosén加入了乐队。Stefan Elmgren在Glory to the Brave专辑中演奏了一些吉他(例如“ I Believe”中的原声吉他),而PatrikRäfling实际上在所有歌曲中都用鼓代替Jesper。但是,当时他们被视为嘉宾表演者,而不是乐队的成员。

1997年初,德国唱片公司Nuclear Blast与HammerFall签订了一份欧洲发行合同,其中包括四张专辑。交易被接受,乐队继续录制他们的前两个音乐视频 -“ HammerFall”和“ Glory to the Brave”。在发行促销单曲之后,《勇敢的荣耀》在整个欧洲发行。即使在Nuclear Blast进行了激烈的营销活动之后,结果还是出乎意料的。在发行的那一周,这张专辑在德国音乐排行榜上排名第38位,这是首张重金属音乐专辑从未实现过的。

与乐队偏袒伽玛射线,捷豹装甲,泪湖和乌鸦通过欧洲大陆,几个旅游团接踵而至。瓦肯露天音乐会是在超过一万人的音乐会上进行的。

1997年底,《勇敢的荣耀》在日本和美国上映。专辑销量达到十万张。HammerFall还获得了最佳硬摇滚表演类的瑞典格莱美奖提名。

1998年2月,他们在比利时和荷兰进行了一次小型俱乐部巡回演出(5场演出)。支持者是比利时乐队Double Diamond,后者后来成为Fireforce

1998年2月,开始了《国王的遗产》的录制。这张专辑再次由乔亚西姆(Joacim),奥斯卡(Oscar)和杰斯珀(Jesper)创作,尽管他们退出了乐队,但他们仍然参与其中,以保持他们初次发行时的一般情绪。这张专辑是由FredrikNordström(来自Dream Evil)和Oscar在Joacim的帮助下制作的。乐队在录音室里花了一个半月的时间录制这张专辑。

在国王传承发行之前,HammerFall进行了一些富有表现力的音乐会,与爱丽丝库珀,拉姆斯坦,深紫,梦幻剧院,撒克逊和Stratovarius等乐队一起在音乐节中演出。

他们的第一次世界巡回演唱会于1998年10月进行。在瑞典的演出中,乔亚西姆·坎斯(Joacim Cans)感染了严重的嗓子,这使他无法唱歌。此后不久,马格努斯·罗森(MagnusRosén)也患上了同样的疾病,在他之后,整个HammerFall的支持人员都病了。乐队的成员演奏了尽可能长的时间,然后被迫推迟或取消一些约会。在穿过南美期间,HammerFall短暂休息了一下,参观了巴西的海滩,但很快他们又恢复了游览。

巡回演出结束后,鼓手PatrikRäfling离开了乐队,MagnusRosén 的朋友Anders Johansson作为巡回演出音乐家加入。在1999年初,他成为乐队的常任理事国。Anders之前曾与吉他手Yngwie Malmsteen一起在80年代和90年代与Rising Force合作,并参与了许多其他项目。他的兄弟延斯·约翰逊从灵云。他在金属以及其他类型的技术和综合节奏方面的才能得到赞扬。

叛徒和绯红色的雷霆(2000–2003)

经过一系列的音乐会,乐队回到瑞典,以便与家人共度时光,并开始为下一张专辑创作歌曲。HammerFall安排了由迈克尔·瓦格纳录制这张专辑的安排,迈克尔·瓦格纳以前曾创作过诸如Accept,Alice Cooper和Ozzy Osbourne的乐队。录音耗时八周,专辑名为《叛徒》。从制片人弗雷德里克·诺德斯特罗姆(FredrikNordström)转到瓦格纳(Wagener)的消息引起了媒体的普遍怀疑。但是,在发行之后,尽管人们一致认为乐队的声音截然不同,但评论家们大多是积极的。导演罗杰·约翰逊(Roger Johansson)的音乐录影带为歌曲“ Renegade”创作,并达到了瑞典游行的顶峰;专辑本身也发生了同样的情况,专辑销量达到了四万张,达到了金牌地位。

奥斯卡在“ Renegade”发行之前就在www.metalrules.com上表示,他们将寻求更“商业”的声音,以吸引更多的听众,否则这些听众会迷失于他们,而将来的专辑也不会按照这个模具。

乐队的第二次世界巡回演唱会于2001年1月开始。这次巡回演唱会将专辑翻唱的副本复制到舞台上。它被设置为废墟中的城堡,音乐家们从那里进入了舞台。总共,巡回演出包括近60场演出。

乐队随后发行了DVD,题为“圣堂武士叛徒十字军东征”,其中包括来自录制会议,现场音乐会,巡回后台以及与歌迷见面的录像。录像范围从《国王的遗产》录制到2001年11月举行的金唱片派对。

然后HammerFall继续录制他们的第四张专辑-Crimson Thunder。安排了在两个JM Studios进行录音的安排:从位于荷兰Wisseloord Studios的 Charlie Bauerfeind到位于德国的Blind Guardian的低音提琴。

在2002年的录音会议结束时,为新闻界举行了一场聆听会议。总体而言,反应是非常积极的,大多数人似乎都认为这张专辑是Renegade的翻版。专辑发行前六周发行了歌曲《Hearts on Fire》的单曲,并在一些欧洲国家的巡游中排名第一。这首歌还因其合唱驱动的旋律,简单的即兴演奏和快速的吉他独奏而吸引了许多新的乐迷。

导演罗杰·约翰逊(Roger Johansson)拍摄了音乐录影带“ Hearts on Fire”,预定于当年8月进行拍摄。但是,由于一晚的事件,乐队的计划不得不推迟一周。约阿西姆(Joacim)和他的女友在一个经常去的摇滚俱乐部喝酒十多年时,他遭到一名身份不明的人的袭击,后者用啤酒杯砸中他的头部,然后急速逃脱。Joacim立即失去知觉,不得不被送往医院,在那里接受整形手术并休息了几天。一旦医学上可行,他就加入了乐队录制音乐视频。

为了促进该乐队在北美的发行,他们在2002年11月和12月期间与Dio一起巡回演出。随后,乐队的经理消失了,并把巡回演唱会的全部收入都带给了他。尽管如此,这次旅行还是非常成功的,并前往了欧洲。乐队的舞台设置发生了变化,烟花和吉祥物赫克托(Hector)在舞台上进行了很多投资。还复制了单曲《Hearts on Fire》封面上的风景并将其添加到表演中。巡演进行到日本,然后到南美。HammerFall参加过德国,西班牙和捷克共和国的音乐节,与Iron Maiden,Slayer等乐队一起演奏,扭曲姐妹,UDO和Stratovarius。

HammerFall的巡回演出突然终止,当时Oscar Dronjak遭遇摩托车事故,摔伤了他的左臂并遭受了数次轻伤。

然后他们别无选择,只能休息一下。斯特凡(Stefan)致力于获得飞行员执照,马格努斯(Magnus)和安德斯(Anders)继续从事其附属项目,乔阿西姆(Joacim)开始创作他的个人专辑并育有第一个孩子。奥斯卡只是专注于恢复。与一群专家一起,他得以恢复自己的全部能力。然后,他再次与Anders,Joacim,Stefan一起加入了Helloween,Gamma Ray和Pretty Maids等乐队,并参加了德国摇滚俱乐部Rockfabrik成立 20周年的庆祝活动。

第五章:未弯曲,未弯曲,未断裂和阈值(2005-2008年)

现场专辑和DVD One Crimson Night于2003年2月发行。经过两年的中断,乐队发行了第五章:Unbent,Unbowed,Unbroken,随后进行了欧洲和南美巡回演出。导演罗杰·约翰逊(Roger Johansson)录制了歌曲“ Bloodbound”的视频。

据报道,10月16日,HammerFall(与Europe乐队一起)将参加Eurovision歌曲大赛。几周后,首席歌手乔亚西姆·坎斯(Joacim Cans)驳斥了这一传言。引用乔亚西姆的话说:“因此,没有任何对话可参与其中。”

他们的第六张专辑《Threshold》于2006年10月20日发行,在瑞典排行榜上直接升至第一位。

2007年3月6日,在HammerFall的官方网站(和他自己的官方网站)上在线发布了一项声明,宣布贝斯手MagnusRosén将不再参与该乐队。他离开的原因表明他对乐队不满意,并希望专注于其他项目。在他自己的网站上(并因此发表了他的官方声明),宣布马格努斯对被迫在HammerFall进行简单的贝斯演奏感到厌倦,并且无法将自己的材料带入乐队。他现在想“在他的职业生涯中更具创造力”。 4月10日,在HammerFall官方主页上宣布,马格努斯的替代者是前成员Fredrik Larsson,他曾在《勇者荣耀》中扮演贝斯专辑。乐队的首张合辑录制了三首新歌。这些是“最后的人站立”,“不安的灵魂”和“深渊”。他们还重新录制了Glory To the Brave曲目“ HammerFall”。2007年10月12日发布了《钢铁遇上钢铁-辉煌的十年》。

2008年4月2日,Stefan Elmgren宣布决定离开HammerFall,从事商业飞行员职业。接替他的是庞诺距离的贵宾犬。2008年6月27日,乐队发行了合辑“ Masterpieces ”。专辑上有乐队翻唱过的每首歌曲的专辑,以及三首以前未发行的新翻唱歌曲。这是Stefan Elmgren与乐队的最新发行。

没有牺牲,没有胜利和被感染(2009–2012)

HammerFall的专辑No Sacrifice,No Victory于2009年2月发行。专辑收录了翻唱歌曲My Sharona。专辑在Billboard Heatseakers图表上达到第38位。 在专辑发行之前的某个时间,发行了歌曲“ Any Means Necessary”的音乐视频。为了开始他们的新专辑,HammerFall与几个支持乐队一起在世界各地巡回演出,例如瑞典的Sabaton乐队。在2010年夏季,乐队在欧洲各地演奏了几个备受瞩目的音乐节,包括Sonisphere音乐节,High Voltage音乐节,Metalcamp,Graspop Metal Meeting还有很多。夏季巡演被命名为“任何必要的节日”。

HammerFall的第八张专辑于2011年5月18日(瑞典),5月20日(欧洲)和6月7日(北美)发行,的名称为Infected。经过在瑞典哥德堡和田纳西州纳什维尔的录音几个月后,新的录音室专辑终于在2月完成。随后以“欧洲爆发”为名进行了欧洲巡回演出。被感染的也是第一张HammerFall专辑,封面上没有此吉祥物骑士Hector。

2012年,HammerFall在瑞典达哈拉(Dalhalla)演出时录制了现场DVD,其中有一些前乐队成员以及其他特别嘉宾。DVD庆祝该乐队成立15周年,并被冠以“达哈拉之门”的称号。 在2013年,HammerFall休息了一会儿,花了一些时间陪伴家人或陪伴。奥斯卡(Oscar )于10月24日发行了有关HammerFall的书,《Legenden om HammerFall》(瑞典语:“ The HammerFall的传说”),讲述了该乐队在过去16年中的活动,但至今仅存在于瑞典语中。

(r)Evolution,《长久以来的统治与统治》(2014年至今)

HammerFall再次与制片人FredrikNordström团聚。人声由詹姆斯·迈克尔录制。对于混音,FredrikNordström在自己的工作室中呆了3周。

(革命于2014年8月29日发布,并风靡全球,在瑞典和Billboard Heatseekers排行榜上排名第一,并在其他几个国家中排名前五。随后的巡回演唱会,即2014-15年全球(r)演变,将使HammerFall与Edguy和Gotthard一起返回拉丁美洲,随后在2015年初进行了全面的欧洲评估。在(r)Evolution发行后不久就离开了,但David Wallin(Pain)被临时聘用,以确保演出能够继续进行。大约在同一时间,Fredrik还决定从2014年9月至2015年3月休育儿假。前吉他手Stefan Elmgren介入并在此期间负责处理4弦音乐,使这个阵容具有独特的体验。目前,该乐队正在欧洲巡回演出中取得圆满成功,已经有7场演出售罄,而且更有可能出现。

2016年3月,乐队宣布已与Napalm Records签约。他们的第十张录音室专辑《Building to Last》于2016年11月4日发行。

2016年12月16日,大卫·沃林(David Wallin)从乐队辞职,专注于他的家人,并在同一天介绍了他们的新鼓手约翰·科尔伯格(Johan Koleberg)。

2017年9月2日,宣布大卫·沃林(David Wallin)与家人有关的问题已解决,他已恢复加入乐队。

2018年12月18日,HammerFall宣布了他们的第11张录音室专辑Dominion。它于2019年8月16日发布。

HammerFall is a Swedish heavy metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band was formed in 1993 by ex-Ceremonial Oath guitarist Oscar Dronjak.

Early days (1993–1996)

HammerFall was formed when rhythm guitarist Oscar Dronjak quit Ceremonial Oath and invited Jesper Strömblad (from Ceremonial Oath and In Flames) to join him as a drummer in a new musical project he had been contemplating for some time. Dronjak had already composed the song “Steel Meets Steel,” which was later included on HammerFall’s debut album. Dronjak and Strömblad were later joined by lead guitarist Niklas Sundin, bassist Johan Larsson, and vocalist Mikael Stanne. When Niklas Sundin and Johan Larsson left HammerFall the following year, Glenn Ljungström (then guitarist of In Flames) and Fredrik Larsson (bassist of the former Swedish death metal band Dispatched), replaced them.

All five members played in other bands at the time. Dronjak and Larsson played in Crystal Age; Strömblad and Ljungström played in In Flames and Stanne sang for Dark Tranquillity. Both of these bands influenced Swedish melodic death metal. HammerFall was relegated to being a side project of them all for several years. Their concerts were limited mostly to a local music contest named Rockslaget. The band had few songs of their own and played mostly covers from bands such as Pretty Maids, Judas Priest and Alice Cooper.

In 1996, HammerFall reached the semi-finals of Rockslaget. When Mikael Stanne could not perform with the band in the semi-finals, they found Joacim Cans, who agreed to play with them for the night. The concert was a success although the judges disqualified HammerFall for the finals. By the end of that day, Joacim had already been made an official member of the band.

Glory to the Brave and Legacy of Kings (1997–1999)

To give more exposure to their work and try for a professional recording deal, a short live performance was recorded and sent to the Dutch label, Vic Records. The musicians soon received a deal and spent the whole of the following year writing the album Glory to the Brave. The album was initially released in the Netherlands and obtained positive feedback; it is also worthy of notice that the band’s mascot, the paladin Hector, first appeared on the cover of this album.

As HammerFall grew in popularity, the time available for members of the band to dedicate to other projects became limited. Dronjak and Cans wanted to pursue the path of HammerFall (Dronjak’s Crystal Age had ceased to exist some time ago), but Strömblad and Ljungström were committed to In Flames and Larsson was committed to the thrash metal band None. Thus, HammerFall’s line-up soon underwent changes. Stefan Elmgren assumed the lead guitar and Patrik Räfling assumed the drums (they joined the band in the end of 1997 after the release of Glory to the Brave album) and Larsson decided to remain in the band until a suitable replacement for him was found. This happened in May 1997, when bassist Magnus Rosén joined the band. Stefan Elmgren played some of the guitars on the Glory to the Brave album (such as the acoustic guitars on “I Believe”) and Patrik Räfling actually played the drums on all songs in place of Jesper. However, at the time they were considered as guest performers, not members of the band.

In early 1997, German label Nuclear Blast approached HammerFall with a contract for a European release deal, which included four albums. The deal was accepted and the band proceeded to record their first two music videos — “HammerFall” and “Glory to the Brave”. After the release of a promotional single, Glory to the Brave was released throughout Europe. The results were quite unexpected, even after the intense marketing campaign made by Nuclear Blast. The album reached position number 38 on the German Music Chart on the week of its release, something which had never before been achieved by a debut heavy metal music album.

Siding with bands Gamma Ray, Jag Panzer, Lake of Tears and Raven, several tours through the European continent ensued. The concert on Wacken Open Air was performed to a crowd of over ten thousand people.

Towards the end of 1997, Glory to the Brave was released in Japan and the United States. Sales of the album reached one hundred thousand copies. HammerFall was also nominated for the Swedish Grammy award in the Best Hard Rock act category.

In February 1998 they did a small club tour (5 gigs) in Belgium and the Netherlands. Support was the Belgian band Double Diamond, who later became Fireforce

In February 1998, the recording of Legacy of Kings began. This album was once more written by Joacim, Oscar, and Jesper, who despite having quit the band still took part in the process in order to keep the same general mood of their first release. The album was produced by Fredrik Nordström (from Dream Evil) and Oscar, with the help of Joacim. The band spent a total of one and a half months in the studio recording this album.

HammerFall made some expressive concerts before the release of Legacy of Kings, playing in festivals together with bands such as Alice Cooper, Rammstein, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Saxon and Stratovarius.

Their first world tour took place in October 1998. During the shows in Sweden, Joacim Cans caught a serious throat infection which made it impossible for him to sing. Shortly afterwards, Magnus Rosén was afflicted with the same disease, and after him the whole of HammerFall’s support crew became sick. The members of the band played for as long as possible and then were forced to postpone or cancel a few dates. During their passage through South America, HammerFall took a short break to visit the Brazilian beaches, but they soon resumed their tour.

By the end of that tour, drummer Patrik Räfling left the band, and Anders Johansson, a friend of Magnus Rosén, joined as a touring musician. In the beginning of 1999 he was made a permanent member of the band. Anders had previously worked with guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen on Rising Force in the 80’s and 90’s and on a number of other projects; he is the brother of Jens Johansson from Stratovarius. He has been praised for his technical and polyrhythmical talent, in metal as well as other genres.

Renegade and Crimson Thunder (2000–2003)

After a long series of concerts, the band returned to Sweden in order to spend time with their families and begin writing songs for their next album. HammerFall made arrangements for this album to be recorded by Michael Wagener, who had previously produced bands such as Accept, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne. The recording took eight weeks, and the album was entitled Renegade. The switch from producer Fredrik Nordström to Wagener was met with skepticism from the media in general. However, after the release, critics were mostly positive, even though there was a consensus that the band’s sound was remarkably different. A music video by director Roger Johansson was created for the song “Renegade” and reached the top of the Swedish parade; the same soon happened with the album itself, which reached gold status with over forty thousand copies sold.

Oscar stated on www.metalrules.com just prior to the release of ‘Renegade’ that they were going for a more “commercial” sound in order to attract a broader audience that otherwise would have been lost to them and that future albums wouldn’t follow in this mold.

The band’s second world tour began in January 2001. Concerts from this tour counted with a replica version of the album’s cover on stage. It was set up as a castle in ruins from which the musicians entered the stage. In total, the tour included almost sixty shows.

The band then released a DVD entitled The Templar Renegade Crusades, which included video footage from recording sessions, live concerts, tour backstages, and encounters with fans. The footage ranged from the recording sessions of Legacy of Kings to the gold album party which took place in November 2001.

HammerFall then proceeded to record their fourth album — Crimson Thunder. Arrangements were made for recording sessions to take place in both JM Studios: from Charlie Bauerfeind, in Wisseloord Studios — in the Netherlands, and studio Blind Guardian — in Germany, for the bass.

By the end of the recording sessions in 2002, a listening session for the press was held. Overall, the reactions were quite positive, and most seemed to perceive the album as a change for the better from Renegade. A single for the song “Hearts on Fire” was released six weeks prior to the album’s launch and remained for weeks on the number one spot on the parades of some European countries. The song also attracted a number of new fans to the band due to its chorus-driven melody and simple riffs coupled with fast guitar solos.

The shooting of the music video “Hearts on Fire” by director Roger Johansson was scheduled for August of that year. The band’s plans, however, had to be held back for a week due to an incident that occurred one night. While Joacim was drinking with his girlfriend in a rock club he had been frequenting for over a decade, he was attacked by an unidentified person who hit him in the head with a beer glass and hastily escaped. Joacim instantly lost consciousness and had to be taken to a hospital, in which he underwent plastic surgery and rested for a couple of days. As soon as it became medically possible, he joined the band to record the music video.

In order to promote the release of the band’s album in North America, they toured with Dio during November and December 2002. Subsequently, the manager of the band disappeared, taking the entirety of the tour’s revenue with him. Despite this the tour was very successful, and proceeded to Europe. Changes were made to the band’s stage setting, and many investments were made on fireworks and on the presence of the mascot Hector on stage. The scenery on the cover of the single Hearts on Fire was also reproduced and added to the performances. The tour progressed to Japan and then to South America. HammerFall was present on festivals in Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic, playing with bands such as Iron Maiden, Slayer, Twisted Sister, U.D.O. and Stratovarius.

HammerFall’s tour was brought to a sudden end when Oscar Dronjak suffered a motorcycle accident, breaking his left arm and sustaining several minor injuries.

They were then left with no choice but to take a break. Stefan dedicated himself to getting a pilot license, Magnus and Anders continued working on their side projects and Joacim began work on his solo album and had his first child. Oscar simply focused on recovering. Together with a group of specialists, he was able to recover to his full capacities. He then joined Anders, Joacim, Stefan again, with bands Helloween, Gamma Ray and Pretty Maids, amongst others, and played in the celebration of the 20 years of the German rock club Rockfabrik.

Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken and Threshold (2005–2008)

The live album and DVD One Crimson Night was released in February 2003. After two years of hiatus the band released Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken, which was followed by a European and South American tour. A video for the song “Bloodbound” was made by director Roger Johansson.

On October 16 it was reported that HammerFall (along with the band Europe) would be part of the Eurovision song contest. This rumor was refuted by lead singer Joacim Cans only a couple weeks later. Joacim was quoted as saying “So there were no talks whatsoever to be part of this.”

Their 6th album, titled Threshold, was released on October 20, 2006 and it went directly to a number 1 position on the Swedish charts.

On March 6, 2007, a statement was posted online at HammerFall’s official website (and his own official website), that bassist Magnus Rosén would not be involved with the band anymore. The reason for his departure stated that he was unhappy in the band and wants to focus on other projects. On his own website (and therefore with his own official statement) it was announced that Magnus was tired of the simple bassplaying he was forced to play in HammerFall, and that he was unable to bring his own material to the band. He now wants to “be more creative in his career”. On April 10 it was announced on the official HammerFall homepage that the replacement for Magnus is former member Fredrik Larsson, who played bass on the Glory to the Brave album. Three new songs were recorded for the band’s first compilation album. These are “Last Man Standing”, “Restless Soul”, and “The Abyss”. They also rerecorded the Glory To The Brave track “HammerFall”. “Steel Meets Steel – Ten Years of Glory” was released on 12 October 2007.

On April 2, 2008 Stefan Elmgren announced his decision to leave HammerFall in order to pursue a career as a commercial pilot. His replacement is Pontus Norgren from The Poodles. On June 27, 2008, the band released the compilation album “Masterpieces”. The album has on it a collection of every song the band has covered, plus three new cover songs previously unreleased. This was Stefan Elmgren’s last release with the band.

No Sacrifice, No Victory and Infected (2009–2012)

HammerFall’s album No Sacrifice, No Victory was released in February 2009. This album features a cover song My Sharona. The Album peaked at No. 38 on the Billboard heatseakers charts. A music video for the song “Any Means Necessary” was released some time before the actual release of the album. To kick off their new album, HammerFall toured all over the world with several support bands, such as fellow Swedish band Sabaton. In the summer 2010 the band played a couple of high-profile festivals throughout Europe, including Sonisphere Festival, High Voltage Festival, Metalcamp, Graspop Metal Meeting and many more. The summer tour was named “Any Festival Necessary”.

HammerFall’s 8th album was released on May 18, 2011 (Sweden), May 20 (Europe), and June 7 (North America), under the name Infected. After several months of recordings in Göteborg, Sweden and Nashville, TN, the new studio album was finally finished in February. The European tour followed, under the name “European Outbreak”. Infected is also the first HammerFall album not to feature the mascot, the knight Hector, on the cover.

In 2012, HammerFall recorded a live DVD while performing a show in Dalhalla, Sweden, that featured some former band members as well as other special guests. The DVD celebrated 15 years of the band’s existence, and was titled “Gates of Dalhalla”. In 2013, HammerFall took a break and some time to spend with their families or side-works. Oscar wrote a book about HammerFall, Legenden om HammerFall (Swedish: “The Legend of HammerFall), that was released on 24 October and tells of the band’s events during the past 16 years, but it still exists only in Swedish.

(r)Evolution, Built to Last and Dominion (2014–present)

HammerFall once again reunited with producer Fredrik Nordström. The vocals were recorded by James Michael. For the mix, Fredrik Nordström spent 3 weeks in his own Studio.

(r)Evolution was released on August 29, 2014, and stormed the charts worldwide, debuting on #1 in Sweden and on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, as well as reaching Top 5 in several other countries. The subsequent tour, dubbed the World Wide (r)Evolution 2014-15, will see HammerFall return to Latin America together with Edguy and Gotthard, followed by a full European assasult in the beginning of 2015. The band was somewhat distraught when drummer Anders Johansson left shortly after the release of (r)Evolution, but David Wallin (Pain) was brought in as a temporary replacement to ensure that the show would go on. Around the same time, it was also decided that Fredrik would be on parental leave from September 2014 through March 2015. Former guitar player Stefan Elmgren stepped in and will handle the 4-string duties during that period, making this line-up a unique experience. Currently, the band is in the midst of a wildly successful European tour, with 7 sold out shows already and more most likely coming.

In March 2016, the band announced that they had signed with Napalm Records. Their tenth studio album, Built to Last, was released on November 4, 2016.

On December 16, 2016, David Wallin resigned from the band to focus on his family, and the same day the band introduced their new drummer Johan Koleberg.

On September 2, 2017, it was announced that David Wallin’s family related issues had been resolved and that he was reinstated into the band.

On December 18, 2018, HammerFall announced their eleventh studio album Dominion. It was released on August 16, 2019.
