Since this is the 20th anniversary of HammerFall‘s debut album Glory To The Brave, the band has decided to do something very special to celebrate this milestone. At Bang Your Head Festival in Germany and Sabaton Open Air in Sweden, they members will be joined on stage by Swedish Grammy nominees Draupner (featuring 3-time key-fiddle world champion Magnus Holmström) for an extensive Glory To The Brave session that you won’t see anywhere else.
Singer Joacim Cans exclaims: “I have worked with these wizards of folk music before, and what they are capable of doing on their instruments is almost impossible. If Yngwie Malmsteen played key-fiddle his name would be Magnus Holmström. This will truly be an epic and unforgettable addition to the live set!”
Draupner represents the timeless Swedish folk music tradition and will put their very unique stamp on some of the HammerFall classics. Expect something very much out of the ordinary for this segment, as no other band on this level has incorporated the Swedish folk music and made the tradition come alive in a heavy metal setting.
This will be reserved for the headline slot of these two festivals, and nowhere else.
