Hammerfall were founded in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1993, but play Power Metal as opposed to other local bands and are one of the leading groups from this genre. At first a project of In Flames and Dark Tranquillity members, they developed into an act that gained considerable fame with albums like „Legacy Of Kings“ or „Crimson Thunder“ although they had to struggle a lot because of constant line-up changes. With influences from Helloween, but also Manowar and Accept, Hammerfall manage to write neo-baroque melodies and harmonies that have become their trademark and make them immediately recognizable. Still, Hammerfall did not dodge progress, shifting towards classic Heavy Metal after the recruitment of Pontus Norgren as lead guitarist. Early on, the band had top ten chart successes, which clearly shows that they have struck a nerve with their sound and are heading the right way.
Of course, you also find Hammerfall's albums in our EMP Shop, not to forget choice shirts and other merchandise articles.
