Hammerfall to me has been on of my favorite power metal band since I found out about them way back in 2001. I currently now own again all there albums. With their new release of No Sacrifice, No Victory that is coming out tomorrow. The sound of this albums is perfect no clipping etc. Just like all the other Hammerfall albums the producer of this album was godly again.
Lyrics — 7
Lyrics of Hammerfall are always about war, victory, honor, etc. Yes there amazing in a band of itself but I always found these lyrics cheesy but for the first song off the album Any Means Necessary You'll start to sing with it cause that chorus is just amazing. Joacim Cans is still amazing at sings, his voice is just beautiful for this band. But over all the lyrics of the songs go with the way the music is build.
