HAMMERFALL Begin Recording New Album

HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"The first week of recording have gone extremely smoothly! [Drummer] Anders [Johansson] played very well — as usual — and [producer] Charlie [Bauernfeind] has managed to make the drum sound even better than on 'Crimson Thunder'! Magnus [Rosén] has recorded all the bass guitar now, as well, so things are progressing really nicely; the ground work is laid, and in a most promosing way, indeed. We still have a long way to go — more than two months remain until the mixing and mastering is all done — but I have a great feeling about this!"

As previously reported, HAMMERFALL are recording their new album at Lundgaard Studios in Denmark for a tentative March 7, 2005 release through Nuclear Blast Records. A single will precede the album on January 31. Songtitles set to appear on the follow-up to 2002's "Crimson Thunder" include "The Templar Flame", "Born to Rule" and "Fury of the Wild".
