Though I know that cancellation news after cancellation news comes as no surprise to the readership, we will continue to post these alerts to make sure that you check your own personal calenders and the credit card statement so you can be properly refunded. Earlier today, the mighty Hammerfall announced that they too would be cancelling the tour that was heading our way in September and October. Read on down below.
Some of you have already started to get your refunds, so now it’s official: the North American tour that was to take place in September/October is cancelled. That sucks, but with the current global pandemic wreaking havoc on the world we (meaning the local promoters, booking agent and the band) had no choice. We are hopeful to be able to rebook the tour for a future time, but since everything is so unstable at the moment the decision was made to scrap altogether it and return to it when things have calmed down. We are as sorry for this as you are, but hope you have understanding for our predicament brought on by the Corona virus. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay metal, and take care of each other! #HammerHigh Continue reading Hammerfall Cancels 2020 North American Headline Tour→

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can’t think of a better way to start off a brutally cold Saturday morning than with this news from the Swedish Power Metal artisans Hammerfall. I love these focused album release performances because they help generate interest in an expanded tour run. Having seen the band on numerous occasions I can safely say that if you are considering going to check them out that you will not be disappointed. Though its almost a year away still from happening, I am marking my calendar for the Brooklyn Bazaar show. What do you readers think about these “Three Nights Of Dominion”? Chime in down below and let us raise the hammer together for Metal in 2019!!!
There is nothing I like more than a great concert touring package and let’s face it, while there are a lot of awesome headlining runs happening, there aren’t always a lot of support bands that make sense at the end of the day. That’s not the case with this announcement from earlier today that presents us with the pairing of the mighty Hammerfall and Dutch sensations Delain. Check out the poster, press release and the dates and then I’ll return with some added thoughts.
The Press Release:
Two of Europe’s finest metal exports and Napalm Records recording artists the might HAMMERFALL and DELAIN have joined forces for a Co-Headline North American tour, set for spring of 2017. A complete list of dates can be found below. Tickets and VIP packages for all shows are available now at http://www.enterthevault.com.
HAMMERFALL will be on the road supporting their highly anticipated tenth studio album and Napalm Records debut Built to Last, which will be released November 4th via Napalm Records. The first single from Built To Last “The Sacred Vow” can be streamed HERE. The band’s first official video from the album for “Hammer High” can be watched HERE.
HAMMERFALL Guitarist Oscar Dronjak cannot wait to return to North America:
“We haven’t done a proper tour in North America since 2010, so I hope the fans realize how unique this is for both us and them. This is very exciting! Get ready for one hell of a heavy metal party each and every night!”
Artist: Hammerfall Title: “Hammer High” (Single) Label: Napalm Record Release Date: 9/23/2016 Genre: Power Metal Rating: 3.5/5
The second single from Hammerfall’s upcoming album “Built To Last” comes care of the song “Hammer High” which I can say is quite the sing-along anthem sort of number that fans have come to love from a band like this. I’ve been a fan of Hammerfall for over a decade now (not as long as some others of course but still) and my main issue is how the tune starts off exactly like Nightwish’s cover of the Gary Moore classic “Over The Hills and Far Away”. I mean its beat for beat on the drums and I had to wonder if their own drummer was thinking of the tune when he put his mind to the skins for this one. That critique out of the way the song is in its defense on the catchy side. Cans and company have made sure to offer up a song that should get all of the audience at the shows with fists raised into the air singing along with them.
