HammerFall - Releasing New DVD In November

The Swedes HammerFall might be taking a break in 2012/13, but the band has announced the release of a live DVD+2CD entitled Gates Of Dalhalla on November 30th, including prominent guests such as original line-up members Jesper Strömblad and Mikael Stanne, as well as ex-guitarist Stefan Elmgren, among others.

For this, the 135 minutes long 15-year anniversary show that took place on July 28th on the historic open-air stage Dalhalla, built in an old quarry near the small Swedish village Rättvik, was captured on camera. The DVD was recorded and dircted by Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, Children Of Bodom, In Flames). It will be released as a DVD/2-CD and Blu-Ray/2-CD.

Oscar Dronjak commented: "The set contained 26 tracks and lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes, by far the longest and most comprehensive gig of our entire career! We played songs from every album and then some, there were lots of guests and pyros, and we had 80 Marshall cabinets and the big shield with the HF logo carved out in the middle hanging brought out of storage, all set in an extremely unique venue. You really have to see it to understand, this concert really captured the essence of HammerFall live in 2012 very well!"

He continues: "Everything concerning this release is special: the venue, the occasion, the setlist, the guests. If you are going to celebrate something, do it properly, and this is exactly what we have done. HammerFall with extra everything, 100% live, 0% bullshit."

I do hope this sounds good, last few albums were quite bad IMHO and on top of it Cans live doesn't sound good at all nowdays.

I used to be a big Hammerfall fan, not so much these days, but this looks like a must have in the collection.

I grow weary of this band.

I'm in the same boat as you, but this appears to be quite an extraordinary release.

I will most probably check this out, a bit too many songs from the new album but other than that that is a good tracklist if HF can ever still produce one. I call bullshit on the "100% live" thing, we all know your little lip-synching secret Oscar
