Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the Swedish Heavy Metal band, the follow-up to their best-selling album No Sacrifice No Victory (2009). Often credited with bringing back strong melodies and honesty in music, the worldwide crusade continues with Infected. A more modern take on their classic and unmistakable sound, this is a bold but still catchy as hell step in a new direction. Mixed and produced by acclaimed producer James Michael (Motley Crue, Scorpions, Meat Loaf), Infected is the future of Power Metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Step Forward June 29, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I wasn't sure what to expect from a Hammerfall album that didn't feature an ironclad templar on the cover or songs with names like 'Steel Meets Steel' or 'The Unforgiving Blade.' A close look reveals that the boys have traded knights for zombies. I guess they wanted to tap into the current zombie fad or maybe they just ran out of songs about templars, either way, the results are positive. I have been a Hammerfall fan for many years and, to be honest, the last couple of albums have been, in a word, boring. In my opinion, Infected is a breath of fresh air. The first thing I noticed when I listened was the amazing production. All of the instuments are huge and in your face. The next thing I noticed is that the songs sound less like traditional power metal and more like straight forward heavy metal. I think that this slight change is what makes the album so good. They took a chance and broke out of their mold and it paid off. There are a couple songs toward the end that could have been on any of their previous albms, but for the most part this it the new Hammerfall and it's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars - SERIOUS ROCKIN METAL! June 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a long time Hammerfall fan. I would consider them one of my favorites, maybe even the favorite. Regardless of some of the complaints made by other reviewers, this is a great album. I like it overall better than the last one "No sacrifice, No Victory", even though it was good.

Being a musician (guitar) myself, I know that most people are not going to write the exact same style of music for a couple decades in a row. Musicians grow, improve and get inspired by new things. Hammerfall as done that on each new album. Always a little bit different but always Hammerfall. You have to remember that Oscar is now playing with a new guitarist and bassists who brings something new to the table. Playing with new band members can inspire different things. I think you can hear that difference on this album more than on their previous album "No Sacrifice, No Victory" (first one with their newest members).

So on one hand you hear some new styles in the songs, but on the other hand it still sounds like Hammerfall. The songs have the same structure and form. The melody structure of the singing is especially the same. The use of anthems and the progressiveness yet catchiness in the guitar riffs are still there. But is also has a fresh, even heavier sound at times and leads that rip more than previously. It does sound as if they have tuned their guitars further down than before. I don't know how far down yet until I get my guitar out and try a couple of the songs. Some of the songs, the fast paced ones sound like they are a more modern version of songs for "Glory to the Brave". I think the album is down right jammin'.

Sure I loved the whole knight warrior thing, but I don't care about that as much as I do the music, especially the guitar riffs and the quality of the singing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maddeningly Inconsistent June 9, 2011
By Chikan
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard the song "One More Time" ahead of the release of this album, I was hoping this song was not representative of the entire album, especially considering all the rhetoric that preceded it about how HammerFall were 'reinventing the steel' and other such nonsense. Let's face it, HammerFall is a pretty one-dimensional band that is completely hit or miss. When they're 'on' they are really on, and when they're off, they are downright boring. The latter element is more prevalent on this release, possibly owing to producer James Michael and his work with more mainstream rock acts. In any case, after the longish (and inconsequential) intro, "Patient Zero" begins the album. I actually like this mid-tempo song due to the plodding main guitar riff and vocal phrasing. It also features a more up-tempo mid-section and uninspired solo before calming down to revisit the opening motif.

From there things hold somewhat steady for a bit, with the faster "B.Y.H." and the aforementioned "One More Time." Track four, "The Outlaw," is probably the best constructed song on the album. Largely mid-paced, it features Cans' great vocals (by the way, Cans should be commended for his vocals throughout this entire disc as they are spot-on and powerful), melodic guitars, an anthemic chorus, etc. In short, it's what HammerFall is all about when they're 'on.' If one looks at the songwriting credits, one will notice that the music was written by Pontus Norgren, not Oscar Dronjak. Maybe Pontus should contribute/be allowed to contribute more often on subsequent releases.

"Send Me A Sign" (also devoid of Dronjak's writing "prowess") is an agreeable acoustic ballad with a nice ending where the entire band comes in.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd best hammerfall album ever July 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely one of my favorite hammerfall albums ever. In my humble opinion, it's second only to their threshold album. If you are a hammerfall fan or like power metal, this album is a must buy! This album has some insane guitar solos and amazing instrumental parts. Especially the guitar solos in Redemption and Immortalized. Redemption is an absolutely beautiful song combined with power and sheer awesomeness. I read the review that said it was "maddeningly inconsistent" and several others along those lines thinking that perhaps i shouldn't buy this album. But i did anyway and i couldn't disagree more with those reviews. There is nothing inconsistent about this album unless you consider chord changes (oh no!) and different instrumental parts (gasp!) "inconsistent." This is a wonderful album and is full of expression, power, and sheer talent. This is a must buy for all hammerfall fans.
