HAMMERFALL - Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken

Sortie le: 2005-03-07

The Swedish templars of metal are on their fifth crusade and proudly present their new record “Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken”. HAMMERFALL stand for powerful, majestic, true and melodic Heavy Metal. This time Hector, the mighty warrior well known from all the HAMMERFALL covers, crushes trough the ice with his hammer. They are back and will once again serve their mission by fulfilling every metal heart around the globe with their Metal brew. The new single “Blood Bound” shows the traditional and heavy side of the Swedish act. A memorable chorus, straight and heavy riffs, thundering drums and the pounding bass power – and the outstanding vocals of Joacim Cans. The same can be said also for the other nine tracks on “Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken” – which will without any doubt become metal hymns for the eternity. Like on “Crimson Thunder”, HAMMERFALL had Charlie Bauernfeind (Blind Guardian, Helloween and others) in the producer seat. Yet again Charlie proved he ranks amongst the top metal producers ever. For a different twist this time HAMMERFALL decided to produce in Denmark at the famous Lundgaard studios in Veijen (Subway To Sally and others), while the mix was done at the Mi Sueno studios in Teneriffe. HAMMERFALL sound strong again – tracks like “Fury Of The Wild”, “Born To Rule”, “Secrets” or “Blood Bound” are the best example that they could even improve on the high standard set with “Crimson Thunder”. Yet listeners will be surprised with the variety on the new record with its progressive parts, classical and orchestral elements, symphonic influences, acoustic tracks and everything in between semi-ballads and Speed Metal monsters. HAMMERFALL have become one of the leading and most successful metal acts of our time. Their debut album “Glory To the Brave” entered the German charts on position 38; in a time when nobody thought about classical Heavy Metal. The following records reached even higher positions and even gold-record status in their home country of Sweden. Last year the live documentary “One Crimson Night” was released on 2CD and DVD, and it featured an unforgettable show in Gothenburg in front of almost 4.000 crazy HAMMERFALL fans. That night the band also received the gold-record for “Crimson Thunder” in Sweden. Now “Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken”” shows what the band has been working on during last year. Be aware of the hammer – and remember that a metal heart is hard to tear apart!
