Set up in 1993 in Göteborg, Hammerfall was one of the leading lights of the European metal resurgence in the mid – to late 1900s. First two albums Glory to the Brave (1997) i Legacy of Kings (1998) were critically acclaimed and their follow-up releases cemented the band as one of the most important band of the metal genre. Early line-ups included members from In Flames and dark Tranquility. Their last album is Built to Last, which was released in 2016.
