Vaya pedazo de debut. super Power metal. 8,5/10

From: Organ Date: March 3, 2003 at 21:31
Hammerfall is fucking awesome, this is one of my favorite albums.

From: Rycheage Date: March 25, 2003 at 2:27
"Stonecold" and "Glory To The Brave" absolutely smoke. This CD is worth it for these 2 songs but the rest are good too. "The Dragon Lies Bleeding" is what power metal is all about.

From: rising power Date: March 31, 2003 at 3:17
Can't people see through this band. They've got nothing in common with real heavy metal bands like AC/DC,Saxon UFO,Picture etc. They sound so wimpy and well-behaved. People are so used to Korn,Limp Bizkit and all those horrible bands that everything with a clean singer and a guitarist that plays solo's seems like "real heavy metal". But if you compare it with the real metal bands of the 70's and 80's it's ultra-trendy

From: Konwar Date: August 3, 2003 at 5:40
Very good start for band.Brilliant ballad - I Believe

From: RR-Finland Date: September 5, 2003 at 6:32
What a crappy "band" from booring Denmark...NOT! Great debut from very fine BAND! This was heavier than next ones, but this one has so much potential! Joacim is great with hes castrate-heavy voice and tunes like Hammerfall, Steel Meets Steel and Stone Cold are great to sing along! FIGHT!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 6, 2003 at 7:20
Hammerfall from Denmark??? Hmmm...Last time I checked they were Swedish...

From: RR-Finland Date: September 8, 2003 at 9:21
Scandinavia, you are right. Svenska pojkar...

From: spike Date: February 18, 2004 at 4:20
ur one of the best power metal ive ever ever heard,i love ur song "child of the damned"but i think u must add some virtouso kind of licks.LET METAL LEAD THE WAY!!!!

From: frank_the_tank Date: April 26, 2004 at 20:00
worst bullshit ever! Put some music instruments into the hands of the backstreet boys and you've got half the chance you end up with Hammerfall, the other half with Linkin Park!!! What a shame it's categorised Heavy metal!! Get a life and quit listening to those shitty bands who have no originality and no talent at all!! Down with power metal! Long live true metal!!!!!!!

From: Captain McYo Date: May 11, 2004 at 12:45
Hammerfall rule all power-metal bands. GTTB's their first album, and still one of the best by them or anyone else

From: holy metal Date: September 5, 2004 at 3:58
Hammerfall the metal band of the 90's, one of the best albums of heavy metal!!!!

From: Kip Date: September 26, 2004 at 0:57
In my opinion this is their worst CD, but it's still very good. New fans should start with their newer stuff and work back to this, as they get a little better with each release.

From: Hammer Date: February 16, 2005 at 9:43
I think they got worse with each release. But i still love all of their albums. The newest two just don't have the speed to match glory or legacy.

From: power-metal Date: February 28, 2005 at 18:40
The best band from Sweden! I dare to say that even tho they rarely change, I love all their cd's! Even the songs that are "poppy" for other people are great for me!

From: Supernaut Date: April 29, 2005 at 14:21
hey power metal fans!! If you love power metal come to

From: ultmetal Date: November 4, 2005 at 8:26
This one still ranks as my favorite Hammerfall release. It has that hungry, raw and spontaneous metal feel that follow-up albums would no longer have. "Dragon Lies Bleeding" is perhaps the ultimate power metal song!
