HAMMERFALL Frontman To Perform With JEFF SCOTT SOTO For First Time Since 1994

Saturday, July 2 will see the premiere of heavy metal at Societetshuset in the summer resort town Marstrand (north of Gothenburg), Sweden. This venue is now run by vocalist Joacim Cans of HAMMERFALL. On this particular night, Joacim will share the stage with Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JOURNEY, TALISMAN). This will mark the first time since 1994 that these two vocalists will perform together.

In the early 1990s, Jeff Scott Soto was Joacims vocal coach in Los Angeles.
"Infected", the new album from HAMMERFALL, entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 2 (right behind LADY GAGA!). The CD was released in Europe on May 20 and will be made available in North America on June 7 via Nuclear Blast Records. Laying down the foundation themselves in their own studio in Sweden, the members of HAMMERFALL then traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to finish it up with acclaimed producer James Michael (MTLEY CRE, SCORPIONS, MEAT LOAF). He also mixed the album, giving it a decisive updated edge without losing any of the essence of the band's sound. "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.

The album consists of eleven songs, and the limited first edition also includes a bonus DVD with unreleased video material of five of the "Infected" tracks.
