The Swedish saviors of Heavy Metal are back: the undisputed masters of ground-breaking anthems and unforgettable live shows, HAMMERFALL, will release their new live epos Live! Against The World via Napalm Records on October 23, 2020.

With an absolutely impressive, grand live production, huge arenas and overwhelming pyro shows, HAMMERFALL took over the world in 2019/2020 with their World Dominion tour. Now, they make their splendor available to every Templar around the globe.

Recorded on February 15th at the MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany, Live! Against The World contains songs fresh off their latest album Dominion, mixed with a ton of band classics and a hand-picked selection of songs that rarely appear on HAMMERFALL’s setlists to fulfill the needs of both new and old fans.

Singer Joacim Cans on Live! Against The World:

We Are HAMMERFALL And This Is What We Do! I am so damn proud that we are able to present a full blown, up-to-date, live show in these extremely difficult times. A time when real live shows in front of a ”real” live audience have ceased to exist. The show at MHP Arena Ludwigsburg was nothing but epic and really captured the strength and power of the band as a live act and shows the joy we are experiencing together on stage every night, no matter where we play. This is the biggest stage production we ever had and now you can experience this at home anywhere, at any time. HAMMERFALL is and always will be a live band and together with the greatest fans in the world we are an unstoppable force!

Guitarist Oscar Dronjak adds:

The live act that HAMMERFALL is right now blows everything we have done previously out of the water, and I am super happy that we got to document it in this way on the biggest tour we have ever done. The setlist speaks for itself, every album is represented with at least one song; there’s stuff we have never performed live before, songs we haven’t played in a long time and of course all the classics. It’s a great testament to where we stand today, and an added bonus is that we finally got to record something major in Germany, in front of the fans who have been with us literally since day one.

Hammerfall

HAMMERFALL’s bombastic live epos Live! Against The World starts off with the smashing first single “Never Forgive, Never Forget” from their latest studio album Dominion (2019). Expect classics like “Any Means Necessary”, “Last Man Standing” and “Let The Hammer Fall” as well as  their power ballad “Second To One” featuring special guest Noora Louhimo (BATTLE BEAST). The show ends with the beautiful and heavy “Hearts On Fire”.
