How time flies! It’s been nearly a decade
since the release of Hammerfall’s
“Glory To The Brave.” Now in 2006, the band has a new disc in
“Threshold.” Tons of power metal riffing that will please your
ears. In addition to that, the nice leads, quality melodic rhythms, and
fastidious solos show why this band continues to produce valuable power
metal songs. That, and their Judas Priest and Iron Maiden influences. The
appealing choruses also help to capture their audience. Joacim Cans’
powerful vocals deserve some respect too. He can hit notes when he needs
to. A few more of those energy filled power metal riffs and addicting melodic
rhythms and I would like this even more. Hammerfall is a very capable band
all around and I always look forward to hearing new tracks from these metallers.
The only probably I had with the promo that was sent is that it had voiceovers
for security reasons. They annoy the hell out of me! Just when you get into
the song you hear the levels drop then the name of the album is announced.
Anyhow, it’s nothing that will be a problem when you purchase your
copy. “Threshold” should please Hammerfall’s fans and
power metal fans alike.
