Hammerfall, 20 år siden debuten

av yngve

Hammerfall 17Svenskene har mye av æren for metalbølgen som kom igang igjen på midten av 90-tallet.

Faktisk deler jeg entusiasmen til presseskrivet her: "There has been no other album that was quite as important for the development of heavy metal in the nineties and now, the milestone will be published in a comprehensive deluxe edition that leaves no wish unfulfilled!" Det er, uansett hva du synes om bandet, en avgjørende hendelse dette, når Hammerfall fikk trøkka ut sitt debutalbum i 97. 

Selv gikk jeg lei fort, allerede på andreskive begynte Nuclear Blast-maskinen å kommersialisere bandet og bølgen, men akkurat før dette skjedde, når det var totalt genuint - da var det herlig.

Remastret skive, bonusstash, lp-varianter 8 flere farger, Nuclear Blast vil nok ikke skuffe på å tilby alternativer for dere som vil være med å feire denne. Forsiden er pusset opp også.

"In addition to this, the double CD will also be enhanced by a bonus DVD containing the first chapters of their The First Crusade documentary, which was originally published on VHS, as well as four new, historically edited interview chapters plus a live recording of their Dynamo Open Air show at Eindhoven in 1998. It will be available as a Digipak in an attractive box set, including a booklet containing detailed liner notes, many photos from the private archives of the musicians as well as magazine reports, flyers, posters and much more. Besides the 2-CD/DVD, you can also purchase the audio part separately, which includes bonus tracks as a double-vinyl in various colors."
