Not bad. They need to get some Legacy of Kings up in this bitch though. If they add that and maybe one other "classic" tune in place of some of the new stuff, I will be pretty content with this at ProgPower. Odd that they aren't doing Glory to the Brave though.

in my phase when i'd listen to nothing but power metal i was never able to get into this band. same with Edguy. although i do really like Heeding the Call and a few tracks from Edguy.

Edguy > Hammerfall. That's a huge understatement. Quite arguable that each band is past their prime, but let me take a moment to compare my favorite album from each band.

Edguy - Hellfire Club. One of my favorite albums of all-time, easily in the top 10, and was an album that somewhat redefined music for me when I heard it in 2004. I still listen to it once in a while and love and respect it.

Hammerfall - legacy of Kings. Top 100 Album of All-time, at VERY best. Probably not even that high, on a good day. When I was 15 I thought this band was incredible, but as time has gone by, very few have faded in my mind quite like this one. Even their best work is merely solid and fun.

Basically, I can still listen to Hammerfall once in a while for luls and such, enjoying their music if I don't look past the cliche shell of it. They could break up tomorrow and it wouldn't sadden me one bit, but I will still go see them if its convenient, occasionally watch a DVD, or put a CD on. However, Edguy have evolved into one of my favorite bands of all-time.

It will be nice to see these songs, but I want to hear HammerFall, Stone Cold, and Keep the Flame Burning. It's nice to see they are playing 17 songs though. From what I remember of seeing Edguy in '08, they played like 12 songs and Tobi was just talking the whole time. I'm really surprised they are playing The Dragon Lies Bleeding. I remember Anders saying that was the hardest/most tiring song for him to play.

Anybody know if these guys are any good live? I like em' but I'm hesitant to go see to go see them.

It was a lot of fun. Powerglove was really cool too, but Hammerfall was amazing. The songs are somewhat cheesy- very sing-along friendly- but that's what made it great.
I'd highly recommend seeing them.

Powerglove -> no Red Wings Over Baron makes me sad :( but apart from that, looks sick. Are Link To The Past and X-Men new songs ?


WAIT ... no Natural Highs for Hammerfall ? :(

I haven't seen Hammerfall since 2005 when it was still the "classic" line-up with Magnus Rosen on bass and Stefan Elmgren on guitar, so I can't totally vouch for how they are live now - but if you like this band, go see them. They aren't going to blow you away, but if you think their songs are fun enough and revel in the cheese-factor, you will really enjoy a live show. They are fairly tight and sound pretty good, so if you like the band and haven't seen them, it's worth the effort and price to go.

Pretty good setlist - good be worse but could be better. Nice to see dragon lies bleeding and stronger than all although when i saw them last year i enjoyed seeing way of the warrior and Trailblazers :rocker:

Hopefully will be making some uk festival appearences
