23:09 - snake? snaaaake! Studying has killed the joy I used to get from reading for pleasure, even though the two are unrelated. I just can't unwind with a good book anymore :(
23:07 - Sunny Pagliaccio Literature *dreamy eyes* ... People don't appreciate that anymore and anyway we're all too stuck up in our own heads to really care if you think about it... I mean honestly how often does one contemplate such things.
23:07 - Redn1ght Hmm, maybe. Could be if they are heavily influenced by the book. Sure.
23:00 - J. N. Oh no, Che's thinking on his own. Somebody, please, stop him.
22:59 - Apothecary Or maybe one could just know their literature and make a connection on the basis of the band's themes and overall aesthetic? Nah man, it's gotta be the drugs. Ok
22:56 - Redn1ght To generate those sorts of ideas from acronyms IS just too out there unless we get a confirmation from the band.
22:55 - Apothecary It never ceases to make me laugh when people imply that you have to be high to generate interesting ideas
Currently listening to the Single "Bushido" which contains and it has some cool riffs and other good guitar parts scattered all over the song but then Joacin starts to sing and it just turns into "another generic Hammerfall song". The Reffrain is cheesy but not in a good way and I feel like they squeezed the Epic elements, doesn't feel natural at all. The solo is good though its quite short.
Single also has "The Way of the Warrior" which isnt on the tracklist of this record. It's possible its in another HF record but, tbh, I know little of their work and am too lazy to look for it. It's not better than Bushido, let's just say that.
Honestly a really solid album, kind of confused why it's getting so much negativity, Tainted Metal is one of the best HammerFall songs to date, Wildfire is pretty savage also. definitely better than Infected and No Sacrifice, No Victory, don't agree with the review. What makes HammerFall so good is the fact that they sound like HammerFall bands don't have to evolve to make things better, a band like Trivium has evolved and gotten worse, no one is liking the evolution of Opeth currently, Children Of Bodom has evolved and will never go back to the way they were years ago, so why do we say evolution is what makes a band stay solid..I disagree, good songs keep a band going on this album is full of them.
Idk why but for some reason, musically this reminds me of the most recent Grave Digger album and overall kinda sounds more straight out heavy metal than it does power metal. That said I really enjoyed listening to this, good guitar work with nice production - though some of the songs in the middle of the album felt like fillers.
Hey just look at other bands; its very hard to repeat the best albums and Hammerfall is no exception. I wish many bands recorded something like their the best albums but I know this is not possible at all. There are many bands which have 2 maybe 3 great albums in their discography and thats it.
