Hammerfall Reveals New Album, "Infected" Details

Swedish heavy metal outfit Hammerfall has announced that the band will be releasing the brand new studio album, "Infected" on May 20th. The album consists eleven songs, and the limited first edition will also include a bonus DVD with unreleased video material of five of the "Infected" tracks. The record was produced by James Michael, who has previously worked with the likes of Motley Crue and the Scorpions.

"James helped us create something that was new and exciting while still in the line of our heritage," Oscar Dronjak, guitar player and founder of the band, explains.

“Never before have we sounded this fresh and up to date without losing the essence of what HammerFall is all about: Pure 'Infected' Heavy Metal!” comments vocalist and frontman Joacim Cans.

"You will experience us like you've never done before! We've got a lot of fresh influences shining through in the music, but everything you love about HammerFall will still be there," says Oscar. "This is HammerFall in 2011, the legend has been reborn!"
