HammerFall album recording 2016: Week 4

4 weeks in, and about 75-80% of the instrumental parts are done. Things are going really smoothly, and everything sounds fucking incredible! We will take a break for a couple of weeks now, to recharge and reflect, and return to finish the rest towards the end of June. Here is last week's social media content.

Things are progressing along nicely, which always is great for peace of mind. All the rhythm guitars are done now, as well as the clean and acoustic parts. Content taken from our various social media escapades.

We began recording the bass and guitars on Tuesday, and here are some of the things we did during last week. Content taken from our various social media posts, mixed with new images.

We all need a break from the grind every now and then.

HammerFall album recording 2016: Week 1

Can you believe it, this is the TENTH studio album from us! And despite a break here and there, it's almost 20 years since we recorded "Glory To The Brave", which makes it album release every other year on average. Not many can match that tempo and regularity, but HammerFall is like a machine. A metal machine! Perhaps that should be the name of no. 10? Nah, we won't reveal the title just yet. Hath patience, dear Templars, and enjoy a visual summary of the first week of recording.
