Hammerfall's latest album Infected has become popular, especially across Europe. The band's career began in 1993 with Oscar Dronjak, a guitarist in Göteborg, Sweden. As their career progressed, some interesting albums they have played are Legacy of Kings in 1998 and Crimson Thunder in 2002. During those years their band member line up has changed too. During the early part of this decade they even have toured with Dio.
While listening to the album it starts off with "Patient zero"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) which starts off with a slow steady beat more like a marching drumbeat and you can hear a zombie breathing in the background. Then the album continues with awesome song hits such as "B.Y.H."(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) it seems to be about the heavy metal music revolution. The song starts of with a fast drum beat, then it slows down towards the end, "One more time"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) which to me symbolizes the war between good and evil; The song begans with a mid tempo beat and while keeping the same momentum Joacim Cann sings “Final frontier - ...”, "The outlaw"(played by: Pontus Norgren on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) according to my understanding is about someone that has forseen the future of Armageddon. If you want to research or learn about Armageddon here is one interesting web link: http://www.thebattleofarmageddon.com/revelation_translation_paulien.html,
"Send me a sign"(played by: Joacim Cans on vocals);Philosophically speaking this song can be compared with both bibilical teachings and Taoism; this song begans with a slow steady beat and while the song plays you can hear the guitar play almost like a harp, very beautiful, "Dia De Los Muertos"(played by:Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals,Joacim Cans on vocals,Fredrik Larsson on bass guitar and backing vocals.) in translation it means day of the dead which is a Mexican holiday. More information can be found about "Dia De Los Muertos" by visiting: http://www.inside-mexico.com/featuredead.htm, the song begins with a real slow steady drum beat and then the song continues with the mid tempo drum beat, "I refuse"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) basically this is a song about betrayal. The song begins with a slow guitar riff along with a steady drum beat, "666 - The enemy within"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) apparently this is a song about someone seeking salvation after losing their soul to the devil, "Immortalized"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) is a song that can be related to the bible were the devil was thrown out of heaven along with his followers which in turn became arch-demons, "Let's get it on"(played by:Oscar Dronjak on guitar.) this song is more about the tradition of rock - n - roll and how it has inspired others through out the years. The song begins with a fast steady drum beat, "Redemption"(played by: Oscar Dronjak on guitar and backing vocals, plus Joacim Cans on vocals.) is a song that apparently has to do with someone controlling nature with alchemy and magic to bring together the sun and the moon, god and goddess which is an eclipse; the result is a life of harmony. While your listening to the song you can hear the sound of a piano or church organ playing with a fast drum beat at short intervals.
If you' re a hard core music fan and decide you want to experience Infected(Bonus Track Version) from Hammerfall then you can find it on Amazon, iTunes or maybe even at your local music store.
The Hammerfall album I have from itunes which I play on my ipod is the bonus track version which basically means it of course has special bonus material and the instrumental version of some songs that are already present on the album. Overall I will give this album a 5 star rating, a great album indeed.
Also if you decide or already have listened to Infected from Hammerfall then please feel free to leave a comment with your overall brief interpretation about the album Infected from Hammerfall. The bands official website can be found here: http://www.hammerfall.net/

The songs in this album from Elane are spellbinding. The songs you will hear are: "In Nights of Rain and Storm (Orchestral Version)," "Love Can't Wait (Single Version)," "My View So Bright" and "Spell to the Dew."
Song one: From what I understand, "In Nights..." is about an ancient forest that had rain long ago and mother nature is telling man that she will always be with him.
Song two: The title track seems to be about a woman wandering around a forest desperately wanting to be with her dream lover and desires to find him.
Song three: To me, "My View So Bright" is about a woman that's hoping to be rescued by her dream lover while stargazing.
Song four: "Spell to the Dew" might have a magical twist where a woman is wishing upon a star for her dream lover to meet and dance with her in the forest.
Elane has four musicians in all: Joran Elane (voice, whistles, harp), Skaldir (guitar, voice, whistle), Nico (keyboards, programming, voice) and Simon (viola, violin, cello). It is full of virtuosos!
You can find Elane's music at iTunes and at elane-music.com. Elane has been making and playing music since 2001, and played live shows with other German folk rock groups such as Faun and Qntal. Joran Elane also does her own artwork and you can find it at glenvore-art.com
Since the lyrics where not easy to decipher from Elane's album and together with great music, I'm going to give it a 4-star rating.

This is a great video where Charlotte is singing with vocals. The song stay forever by Delain can also be found on itunes. The band Delain according to their website were originally a project but now they are a band, a very great one. The song in this video Stay Forever seems to tell a story about a woman that has got herself caught in a love triangle and she is asking for her lovers to stay forever; But at the same time she is trying to decide which lover will pass the test of time as being the one soulmate. Well thats how I interpret the song in the video; your interpretation or perception may be different. :-)
