2006-06-09 - HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following update on his official blog:<br><br>&quot;The 19th European Athletics Championships are being held in Gothenburg in August, and we were going to shoot a video together with a couple of the Swedish athletes - much like we did with the curling team (who went on to win the Olympic gold medal, I might add), only with a specially written, previously unreleased track. The athletes were Robert Kronberg (110 meter hurdles), Alhaji Jeng (pole vault), Johan Wissman (200 meters) and Kajsa Bergqvist (high jump). Robert especially had been looking forward to this for a long time, apparently, and seemed to enjoy every minute of the long day. He played drums in a few takes (!), and rocked for all he was worth, as did the others. I'm sure it will be a really funny video!<br><br>The highlight of the day for me was definitely the opportunity to do a couple of high jumps. That was always my best sport in school, and I haven't tried it since then. 1.45 meters posed no problem at all, and neither did 1.55, but when I raised the bar another ten centimeters, my body said, 'You know what, brotha, even all my little Hulkamaniacs couldn't force me to get up and jump now.' (Why my body sounds like Hulk Hogan, I'll never know.). Too tired from last night's drinking and not enough sleep &#8212; that's what I told myself, at least &#8212; I could muster one proper jump but no more. Determined to clear the height later, I let it rest. For a while. After lunch, I felt ready to attack the bar again, and just barely missed. Kajsa Bergqvist, most likely the best female high jumper in the world came over to the mat. I was kind of nervous, not only because she has won virtually everything there is to win and is the current world record holder indoors (2.08 meters), but also because I've always admired her. ;-) She gave me some helpful advice, and then I tried it again. Wouldn't you know it, I practically sailed over the bar (I touched it a little, but it stayed in place)! Clearing 1.65 meters wearing stage clothes and only socks, I was quite proud of that effort! I have posted a video of one of the first jumps in the video section <strong><a href="http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=807335783&n=2%22" target="_blank">here</a></strong> on MySpace:<br><br>HAMMERFALL recently entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to 2005's Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken, tentatively due this fall. Song titles set to appear on the album include &quot;Carved In Stone,&quot; &quot;Titan,&quot; &quot;Dark Wings, Dark Words,&quot; &quot;Shadow Empire,&quot; &quot;Rebel Inside,&quot; &quot;Threshold,&quot; &quot;The Fire Burns Forever,&quot; &quot;Howlin' With The Pac,&quot; and &quot;Natural High.&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=26"><u>HAMMERFALL</u></a>&quot;
