110: HAMMERFALL

Here’s the thing about Hammerfall…

Hammerfall sounds exactly the way you expect a band called Hammerfall to sound.

What started in the 90’s as a sort of fun side project from a handful of Swedish metal musicians has grown bigger and bigger for nearly thirty years now. And it’s not hard to see why.

Hammerfall’s medieval/fantasy themed take on power metal is everything good about the subgenre – it’s bombastic, triumphant, celebratory, and just damn fun.

The joyous melodies and riffs encourage fist pumping and yelled choruses like few others can, and personifies the very essence of the European power metal sound.
