One Word Review: Solid
Hammerfall's latest is an excellent blast of heavy metal, with focus on melodies, energy and spirit, and even if the lyrics are not exactly the album's strongest point, this is overshadowed by its other qualities.
Now, as Manowar seem to be packing it in, it is good to hear other bands display, at least a fraction of the magic, which appears with the joy of playing pure, energized, spirited heavy metal. Built To Last shows that Hammerfall still have it and it makes me hope they will evolve into something more fierce and defiant with time, and deliver songs of a quality to carry on their legacy of Kings long into the future.
Favorite songs: Hammer High, Built To Last, Stormbreaker, The Star Of Home
