Cool music though General Comment My favorite ballad, very powerfull, very good vocals And the video is good, a very good compainion for the song.

Definitvely the best song of the CD General Comment One of the members of the band wrote this song for his Grandfather's funeral. I would also like this played at my funeral. This was the first song I heard from HammerFall after my sister died. It was very moving, and it still has an impact on me This song can be played 10 million times, and it won't get old. General Comment Hey, this does not have anything to do with the song I just recently discovered hammerfall, and was wondering what the best album was in opinion General Comment Beautiful ballad.

I'm not a big fan of Hammerfall, but this one caught my attention. General Comment Amazing song. The circumstances around which it was written don't really surprise me. I put this song on after I got the news one of my friends committed suicide recently. It is kind of sad, but manages to sound fairly uplifting at the same time. Glory To The Brave is about loss of a dear person. Unchained represents heavy metal resurrection I have already explained what happened in 90's in a metaphoric way.

It has deeper meaning like: fighting keeping heavy metal alivewarriors metalheadsalthough hate-boys can't wait to say: HammerFall is a Dungeons And Dragons band. Steel Meets Steel is about historic Crusade Wars. The Metal Age proclaims the upcoming heavy metal years. And that's what they did. They ensured future for many bands which were formed later. Fantasy lyrics? Only in the song The Dragon Lies Bleeding. Enough to call their lyrical theme - fantasy?

No fucking way! Child Of The Damned is Warlord's unsung classic. HammerFall as a great fans covered it. They took kick-ass song, and made it kick-ass even more. It sounds like their own. Vocals done on the original version fit more this dark song, but Joacim did excellent job here. Good sides of this release: To be a metalhead, but not to like HammerFall? I just can't imagine that. It is like an apple pie without an apple. If you find this release somewhere, go forth, Album) get it. You can't regret.

It is worth its price. Bad sides of this release: There's only one very good song - I Believe. The rest of the songs are excellent. Hammerfall is the band that introduced me to real power metal, not what fans of Dragonforce try to pass off as power metal.

I look at Glory to the Brave and Hammerfall and see everything that I want to see in power metal: Excellent vocals on the part of the lead singer, fast paced harmonic guitar work, fast paced precise drumming, and a sense of epicness that one gets while watching Lord of the Rings, however, that last part is optional. Glory to the Brave is an excellent start to Hammerfall's career, and starts off with "The Dragon Lies Bleeding," giving listeners their first taste of Joacim Can's beautiful singing voice and the fast paced harmonic guitarwork of Oscar Dronjak and Glenn Ljunstrom, combined with the bass and drumming of Fredrik Larsson and session member Patrik Rafling.

But Hammerfall shows that they are perfectly capable of playing equally good slow songs like "I Believe" and the title track "Glory to the Brave.

My one problem with the album is the same problem I have with every Hammerfall album, and almost every power metal album, and that is the lyrics.

They are virtually the same J. While fun, and well written, they get repetitive very quickly. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed Glory to the Brave and think that anybody else who listens to it will too. Out of this first and defining hit, ina revelation for power metal was created. Its name was Hammerfall and its result was deadly. With their very first attempt, these boys from Sweden managed to do what others have been trying in Steel Meets Steel - HammerFall - Glory To The Brave (CD whole career.

They made an album that spits fire from its nostrils and travels you to mythical time dimensions. It feels like a sharp blade made from pure steel, a worthy successor to the tradition of the great bands of the genre. Without any doubt, when this album gets faster, the galloping of a whole brigade is weak compared to it.

It is full of passion, strength, feelings and tension. The storming rhythms, epic choruses and melodic parts are a guarantee for genuine, traditional and hot power metal. They have combined the best elements of American power metal bands like Warlord and Heir Apparent with those of European origin Maiden, Helloween, Gamma Ray in a unique way. A plus for the Album) is the crystal clear production that allows the band, which by the way sounds particularly bonded, to express their love for heavy metal.

Every word he sings is comprehendible and given with incredible strength and passion. The pounding drumming adds more power to the track and to me it is the best moment of the album by far, simply superb. On The Metal Age the guitars make an exhibition of exquisite, skillful sharp riffing while the song that follows and bares the name of the band is doomed to become a classic with its pompous refrain and the amazing breath taking double solos. The song I Believe is a beautiful, both heavy and melodic, power ballad where Cans makes you believe in the abilities of Hammerfall.

There are only a few ones like this out there. The cover of Child of The Damned remains true to the authentic performance although the drummer, Patrik Rafling is by no means Mark Zonder!

Then listen to Steel Meets Steel, do you want heavy riffs, fast solos and a devastating rhythm section, then try Stone Cold. The self-titled track which closes the album is simply majestic. You close your eyes and let the music take over you.

And when the song ends, your hand goes back to the PLAY button. But most important, it proved that back in the womb of power metal was still fertile and strong enough to glorify the brave! In there was a turning point in the world of music, as a collection of younger Album) faithful began to abandon the underground death metal scene in favor of a new alternative to the bankrupt thrash scene, which fortunately was finally starting to die off.

Hammerfall is one of the earliest examples, along with their more technically proficient fellow Swedish counterparts Nocturnal Rites, of what I would call the 2nd tier of the power metal rebirth of the late 90s. The very depiction of a lone warrior standing tall amidst a forest of withering trees and decrepit soil is a very good visual representation of the contrast between bands like this and what was going on in the realm of music around them. Other than that, this band is mostly a throwback to that older style with the advantage of incredible leaps made in recording technology to bring that sound to a young generation.

To expect innovation out of these guys is in direct contradiction with what the band stands for, which is a no compromising worship of the original brand of metal that graced the stage in the early 80s. The guitar work on this release is solid, though it is not the shred fest that some fans of Yngwie and others seem to have been hoping for.

The songs on here are all straight-forward power metal, lacking the progressive keyboard elements of bands such as Labyrinth and Stratovarius, the odd song structures of Dream Theater and the large arrangements of symphonic bands like Rhapsody. The format is a clear, formulaic set of Judas Priest inspired riffs with one of those unforgettable choruses that Manowar would use to pump up a crowd during an encore. Though not quite as well produced as later releases, this is definitely top of the line Power Metal.

If you like your power metal straight up out of the bag, this is definitely the band for you. But even in my opinionated youth I enjoyed some of their songs, and it was only a matter of time before I decided to go back and give them another chance. Theirs is a strong, riff-oriented boot to the face of the keyboard-driven bands, striking with a strong guitar and bass sound, relentless drumming that while double-bass heavy, is not reliant on it and a nice balance between the vocals and instruments.

Chalk it up to listening to too much Malmsteen back in the day, I guess. Oh yeah, forgot to mention that for all their trueness, they always throw a ballad or two onto their albums, and most leave you feeling as though they were contractual obligations. The album sounds like it was made by real people using real instruments unlike so many modern power metal bands, Hammerfall themselves occasionally includedwith minimal extra flourishes.

A worthy, if non-essential introduction to the genre and an excellent diversion from the more extravagant albums out there. HammerFall are one of the biggest acts in the power metal scene right now, and are worshipped by power metal fans and loathed by death metal fans- two very good signs. Close your eyes, I will take your hand. Through the river of steel we'll go when the dragon lies bleeding" and their general approach is the classic 'mighty warriors and ferocious dragons", the music on this record is fairly different from most other bands, and also very varied.

The music is based on very solid speed-based riffwork, catchy drumwork with lots of double bass, and very solid basslines, and also features the instantly recognizable voice of Joacim Cans. He's a pretty decent singer, but his doesn't have a very wide range, something that usually is expected from a power metal singer.

Nonetheless, he's got a strong midranged voice that works very well in the band. The songwriting itself is pretty varied and very interesting, featuring a several really cool riff sequences and some nice tempo changes in several of the songs, keeping it interesting and varied. This is probably the album's strongest side, as it sets HammerFall apart from many other power metal acts that suffer from being somewhat predictable. But the songs themselves can sometimes vary in quality, and there are several tracks that feel Album) boring and forgettable.

Same goes for "Stone Cold". These are good songs, but just don't have the same power as some of their other stuff. The first of the album's two ballads "I Believe" is also pretty weak, despite a very nice solo. The rest is all pretty damn solid though. The Warlord cover "Child of the Damned" is a heavy can of melodic asskicking. The title track closes the album in a huge fashion; very powerful and emotional don't mistake for 'whiny' ballad.

But the real highlight is the song "HammerFall". Awesome speed metal with a huge epic atmosphere, headbanging guitar rhythms, and that excellent slower bridge towards the end- "Just follow your heart, don't listen to the crowd That's probably the best song I've heard from the band, and it's easily the best track on "Glory To The Brave".

The second highlight would have to be the title track. In conclusion HammerFall brought something new and instantly recognizable to the world of power metal with this debut, and while this is certainly a strong album it is a bit inconsistent, and they would soon get better.

Nonetheless, I'd definitely recommend this to fans of power and speed metal alike. The debut from HammerFall was the largely the start of the huge "True" melodic Metal explosion of the late 90's, even though the main influences of HammerFall were bands from the 80's.

The opener, "The Dragon Lies Bleeding" is a great double bass and gallop filled track that contains an excellent chorus and memorable melodies. Most of the songs follow the same principle, with "The Metal Age" and "Stone Cold" being a tad slower, but still very melodic. It isn't until "Hammerfall" that we hear the first inclusion of back up choirs. As always with HammerFall, they are used very well and they make "Hammerfall" my personal favorite track on the CD.

The token ballad is up next with "I Believe", the similar ballad on Legacy Of Kings is a stronger song, but since this was the debut, they can be forgiven for not perfecting the ballad quite yet- still a solid song though. They are not at a Spiral Architect level or anything like that, Album), but the leads, riffs, and drumming just seem to be more polished and a little less straight forward having a different guitarist and drummer for this release probably attributed to that.

Likewise, the song structures are more dynamic with more surprises and pleasant change ups. You're never sure what you're going to get next in each song because at any moment they could throw a twist in.

Joacim Cans' vocals are solid as always, not great mind you, as he has a limited range, but he knows his range and there is no mistaking his voice. The biggest surprise though was Jesper Stromblad on drums. I knew Stromblad could play guitar from his work in In Flames and Dimension Zero, but he is a very, very solid drummer. He never misses a beat and does some nice snare and bass drum work. The lyrics on Glory To The Brave are the usual topics about fantasy, medieval occurrences, and the odd one about life.

I think there are some really strong lyrics on here though, especially on "Steel Meets Steel", "The Metal Age" and title track. In general, the lyrics are not as sappy as you might expect, which is also a nice touch. Metal Archives loading Username Password Login.
