Hammerfall belong to the spearheads a revived passion for heavy metal. After a time when nu metal, grunge and all kinds of sub-genres evolved, the swedes brought back traditional metal to the plate. It was the 1997 release ‘Glory by the Brave’ that fascinated headbangers and it marks the start of an impressive career.
Twenty years ago, Hammerfall released with ‘Crimson Thunder’ their fourth album and the band celebrate this moment with the release of a 20-Years Anniversary edition which of course features the entire album, incl. smashing metal anthem such as ‘Riders of the Storm’. The album comes via Nuclear Blast and has been launched a few days ago.
The newest addition to the retrospective series was remixed and remastered by Fredrik Nordstrom the album fires on all cylinders and shows why the five guys from Gothenburg have such a wide fan base.
With pre-production tracks, acoustic live versions of for example ‘Steel Meets Steel’ and the ‘Crimson Thunder Medley’, fans also get additional goodies, coming with this anniversary edition.
