4.0 out of 5 stars Best of Hammerfall?, 11 Dec 2007

I bought this on a whim just to try something with which I was unfamiliar and find myself pleasantly surprised. Sure it is formulaic "power" metal but it is done with considerable panache. Powerful riffs, some tight bass and drums and excellent lead breaks combine with lots of "oooh woah" style choruses, and typical sword and sorcery imagery in the lyrics, but to me this is a good example of the genre. Someone with the other albums will have to tell me if this is truly representative of the band, but taking the ground somewhere between Iron Maiden and Dragonforce is not a bad place to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal for metal-heads, 1 May 2010

Hammerfall - what's not to like! If you don't want your metal buggered about with with special effects and sounds you can't reproduce live you have to go to the likes of Hammerfall, Dream Evil, Firewind, etc. There's a whole load of European and US bands out there who many have not heard of because they stick to the so-called-rock bands who make it onto pop radio or are Kerrang's band of the moment.

Try looking around the sorts of bands who make regular appearances on Scandanavian and German rock festivals and you'll uncove a new seam of good solid metal. Hammerfall are up there with the best, and as this CD is a best of, need I say more.

If you like Hammerfall, you'll love this album. It has got everything you'd expect from this great band. Bought it for my son but play it myself far too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is for Big Jim., 15 Dec 2007
This review is from: Steel Meets Steel: 10 Years of Glory (Audio CD)
Hello my friend, i have been a hammerfall fan since 2000, and i can tell you thata although this is a 'good' greatest hits, it is nowhere near as good as it could have been, the band went for a 'few songs off every album' rather than 'THE best songs from the band'. And theres some newer songs which DO NOT deserve to be on here. In my opinion listen to 'Glory to the brave' 'renegade' 'crimson thunder' and 'legacy of kings' the newest CD threshold is OKAY and pretty good, but not what it could have been.

This is an okay compilation, but really listen to the ones i mentioned, i think they are really really good CD's and hammerfall used to be one of my fave bands, but nowadays they have taken a bad turn with the boring 'chapter V' and 'threshold' is a step in the right direction but not as good as the old days.

This band turned around the metal scene when they first arrived, and played this kind of metal through the height of nu metal, earning them respect in true metal circles.
