Swedish melodic metallers HAMMERFALL have once again entered Mi Sueno studios in Tenerife, Spain to record several songs for the "best of" album coming out in October.Commented the band: "We're celebrating our ten-year anniversary as a record-releasing band in 2007, remember? We spent seven weeks or so here five years ago, recording 'Crimson Thunder', and a fortnight for the mix of 'Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken', so it was a great pleasure to once again walk into the arms and home of the Deris [Andi Deris; HELLOWEEN vocalist] family." You can follow HAMMERFALL's progress online at this location. HAMMERFALL recently announced the return of bassist Fredrik Larsson to the group's ranks. Lead singer Joacim Cans said, "Fredrik recorded 'Glory To The Brave' with us, so he's definitely a part of the family. It's great to have him back!" Larsson had the following to say about rejoining 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 [when I first rejoined the group], and it felt like 1997 was just a couple of weeks ago."
