HAMMERFALL Back In The Studio; New Album Out Early 2022

Swedish power metal brigade HammerFall are back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2019’s Dominion. The studio album will be released early next year through Napalm Records.

A band update reads:

“Out of the five of us, Fredrik [Larsson, bassist] was probably the most excited about finally being back in the studio, and it really showed! He did a tremendous job recording, his bass lines creating the perfect foundation to build the rest upon.

“Special HammerFall TV [the band's YouTube channel] episode on Sunday, November 28, where we will talk a bit more in depth about the recording. Stay tuned for details!”

21 years ago, the Swedish heavy metal powerhouse, HammerFall, travelled to Nashville to record their third album with legendary producer Michael Wagner, leaving the safe space that was Studio Fredman in Göteborg. Fredrik Nordström had recorded the two previous records, so naturally that was a huge change for the band. The Wagner experience and the Renegade album turned out great, as we all know today. For this anniversary edition, the band felt that they needed to close the circle and have Fredrik remix the Renegade album.

The result is Renegade 2.0, out now via Nuclear Blast Records in many beautiful formats and with a brand new album artwork made by famous cover artist Andreas Marshall, which makes every HammerFall fan heart beats faster.

In these new videos, Oscar and Joacim discusses how the success of Renegade changed the metal climate, and "The Way Of The Warrior" and how the Mandalorians stole the phrase.
