Oscar visits "Wrestlemania"

Oscar visits "Wrestlemania" - 2005-04-08

2005-04-08 - HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following message on the group's official web site:<br>&quot;Sorry for not updating for a while, we have been busy preparing for the start of the tour. But more on that later, first things first. Chart entries: Our new album have been extremely well-recieved all over Europe, as we are still in the charts for the fourth week in both Austria and Germany, as well as the first week in Italy and the second in Switzerland. But the most surprising news comes from Sweden. &raquo;Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken&laquo; managed to stay in the top 10 for four weeks, a record for us. Three straight 4's and a 9, unbelievable! Thank you everyone all over the world who has bought our albums, you are the greatest fans anywhere! You never disappoint us, and I sincerely hope we never will you.<br><br>&quot;As our webmaster wrote in the news yesterday, the show in Pratteln on April 21st is now sold out, and an extra show will take place on the 20th. So, if you missed getting tickets to the previously announced gig, don't worry; You'll get another chance to catch the band live the day before. Thus, the following show has been added to the tour: April 20th at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland.<br><br>&quot;The rehearsals have been going very well, I think you'll find somewhat of a different band on stage this year. Not any less energetic &#8212; probably even more! :-) &#8212; but more focused and tighter than ever. Incidentally, the Helsinki show tomorrow marks the first HAMMERFALL gig in twenty (20!) months, incredible as that sounds. It's safe to say that we are psyched and excited like never before.<br><br>&quot;Before signing off, I would like to take the opportunity to thank some people for the single greatest weekend of my entire life. A friend of mine and I flew over to Los Angeles to go to WrestleMania 21. We were invited by Mikkey Dee, who would perform live at the event with his band MOT&Ouml;RHEAD and who knows I am a huge wrestling fan. We were in heaven, shaking hands and taking pictures with a lot of wrestlers we have only seen on TV before. Just hanging backstage at the biggest PPV of the year, taking everything in, is an inerasable memory! <br><br>&quot;Thank you, Mikkey, for taking great care of us and making sure everything went well, thank you Lemmy and Phil for not having a problem with us tagging along, and thank you Chris Jericho, Triple H, William Regal and the entire WWE for letting us come to the aftershow party and providing us with an experience I shall cherish for as long as I live. If anyone ever ruled, it's all of you.&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=26"><u>HAMMERFALL</u></a>&quot;
