HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following message on the band's web site:
"It is with great pride and pleasure I can announce the first confirmed live show for HAMMERFALL next year: Bloodstock 2005 in Derby, U.K.! On September 2nd, we will return to English soil for only our second appearance ever. Headlining the Friday's festivities, we will bring the full show on a large stage, presenting our vision of heavy metal to the British Isles.
"This makes me feel especially happy, as I was pretty much solely responsible for us not making it to last year's festival (the motorcycle accident, remember?). This time, I promise you, there will be no cancellation. In fact, I guaran-damn-tee it! More concerts are going to be announced in the next months, and they will be posted here as they are confirmed.
"In more contemporary news: the studio work is progressing very well. We have begun with the guitar melodies and the solos will follow shortly. If you are interested, check out the diary elsewhere on this site. I am reporting things as they happen, complete with pictures. 'Til next time, in the immortal words of Joe Dirt: keep on keeping on!"
