The return of Hector!
The saviours of heavy metal, and one of the most influential bands for over 20 years in metal, are finally back! HammerFall, who recently signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records, have just left the studio and are about to release their hotly anticipated masterpiece in form of the band’s upcoming 10th album, which marks their strongest work to date in their successful career and history. Sold out shows and headlining tours all over the world, HammerFall stand for powerful, majestic and melodic heavy metal.
The memorable choruses, straight and heavy riffs, thundering drums, pounding bass power and outstanding vocals have already and without a doubt became metal hymns for eternity. Their unstoppable creations reigned in a time when none cared about classic heavy metal, HammerFall have and will always deserve credit for bringing the melodies back to metal music. 20 years later and with their upcoming studio album, HammerFall prove that they still own the throne of heavy metal!
Band guitarist Oscar Dronjak comments: “Built To Last is our 10th studio album in 19 years, incredibly enough, but I think we sound more alive and vibrant than ever before! We have worked our asses off to make sure this album is a worthy successor to (r)Evolution, and I have no doubt in my mind that we have created one of the strongest records we have ever done. I am immensely proud and excited about this album, and I am confident all our Templars of Steel will agree once they hear it in November.”
Now the band has unveiled the title, artwork and tracklist for their upcoming album, which will be titled Built To Last and will be released on November 4 via Napalm Records/Rocket. The stunning artwork was designed by Andreas Marschall:
The tracklist for Built To Last will read as follows:
