Not as good as Legacy Of Kings, but HammerFall is one of the few power metal bands I like.

One of the first metal albums I ever bought. I used to listen to a lot of power metal at the time. I don't think it still holds up but it will always have a special place in my collection.

This one is the most consistent Hammerfall so far, a bit more mature than Legacy of Kings but with the same quality. Everything here is quite great, they have great musical ideas all the way. Way of the Warrior, Destined for Glory, Champion, have all a little something that makes them special and really memorable. To note, the riffs have become really interesting, but the drums and bass keep being really boring and pedestrian but do their job. Funny that in the bonus track "Head over Heels" from Accept, the bass is really audible and distinct, so its all a matter of songwriting.
The only negative of this I would say its Always Will be. I usually like ballads, but that one is wretched.
