Less than one year after their last strike "Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken", the Swedish Heavy Metal kings HAMMERFALL are back with their best album to date. "Threshold" is once again the best lesson in steel money can buy, HAMMERFALL have written some of the most interesting songs in their entire career and have managed to sound varied but without ignoring the purity that True Heavy Metal requires, Once again, the band used Charlie Bauerfeind as a producer (BLIND GUARDIAN, HELLOWEEN), Quite naturally, the sound of "Threshold" is powerful, dark and as clear as crystal, Songs like the dynamic title track, which is also the opener of the record, or "The Fire Burns Forever" show their full quality at a maximum volume, Guitarist and main songwriter Oscar Dronjak comments: "Our goal was to get a production as heavy and energetic as we had on the previous albums, but still improve it, along with the performance, even more, Musically, we built on the foundation of our previous work and developed the sound, and perhaps brought back some of the speed, without losing the heaviness and the groove, of course, HAMMERFALL is, and always will be, a Heavy Metal band." And talking of "The Fire Burns Forever": HAMMERFALL wrote this track for the 19th European Athletics' Championships, which took place in Gothenburg, Sweden this August, HAMMERFALL performed the track live at the opening ceremony which was broadcasted on TV in over 54 (!) countries.
