HammerFall

Founded in 1993, Gothenburg's HAMMERFALL made a truly startling impact with their 1997 debut album 'Glory To The Brave'. Unashamedly harking back to prime time traditional Metal and including a rousing cover of WARLORD's 'Child Of The Damned', the Scandinavian's astute notion of what the European Metal scene was waiting for was amply rewarded. The debut album crashed straight into the German national charts selling over 100,000 copies in the process, surprising even their record company. This massive impact completely turned the continent's Rock scene on its head, triggering the onset of legions of Power Metal bands from all over the globe.
