I'm pretty amazed, because there wasn't any thread about Hammerfall before this one. Anyways, Hammerfall is a Power Metal band from Sweden. They have released quite some albums now and they will release a new compilation cd, this year. I re-discovered them lately. I used to like them very much, but I forgot about them for a while. As I said before, I re-discovered them, and I wanted to make a thread about them, because I'd like to know what you guys think.

Glory of the Brave was huge when it first landed, but I myself didn't come around to Hammerfall (and metal in general) until 2006, so listening back through, it does seem a little bit inferior to follow ups like Legacy of Kings or Crimson Thunder. That being said, it still has some decent stuff on it (IMO).

I wouldn't call it inferior. I think it has some of their best melodies. The lyrics are probably their most childish on that album, but it's still a pretty amazing debut.

I'm sorry. I never meant to imply that their first album is bad, just that I think Legacy and Crimson are better (thus "a little bit inferior"). Ii don't think it's the lyrics so much as the songwriting isn't quite as together as on the later albums, but that's just me.

No need to be sorry

Yeah I probably agree with that. I like Glory, but the next couple of albums are definitely stronger in my opinion. Joacim is also better on vocals on Legacy and Crimson.

Interesting, I've always considered Glory to the brave as their best ever album.
