Hammerfall Announce New Bassist

HAMMERFALL founding member & guitarist Oscar Dronjak sends in this update about the band's new bassist:

"The waiting and speculation is over. Magnus [Rosén] has been replaced. The new guy should be no stranger to any HAMMERFALL fan: re-enter Fredrik Larsson, original member of the band and fugutive for the past decade. Fredrik brings structure to the rhythm section and I think you will definitely hear and feel the difference when we play live."

"He plays with a pick, for one, and has a great groove and timing, all of which will make HAMMERFALL sound better than we ever have before," drummer Anders Johansson remarked, and guitarist Stefan Elgrem chimed in: "We are all very psyched about this and can't wait to get on the road again." Lead singer Joacim Cans adds, "Fredrik recorded Glory To The Brave with us, so he's definitely a part of the family. It's great to have him back!"

States Larsson about re-joining the band:

"I am very happy and excited to be back! I have known the guys for more than ten years and we have kept in touch all the time, so it is not as if I come in a complete stranger. We played a few songs together last weekend, and it felt like 1997 was just a couple of weeks ago."
