Hammerforce is quite a refreshing breath of air
This is easily the most consistent fast and loud power metal album

Somewhat reminds me of Dream Theater at times which is a good thing

Hammerforce would like to thank:
Sergey Fomichov (for beautiful artwork and support), Kate Sergeeva (for support, ideas and contribution), Anton Shostakovskiy (our former bass player), Ilya Lemur, Andrey Shpitalnik, Viktor Minkin, Artem and other vocalists that we tried to collaborate with, Nikolay Fomichev (for some ideas), Aleksandr Orlov (for posing for artwork), and everybody who somehow helped us during creation of this album (sorry if we forgot somebody)
Special thanks for their notable contribution to: Alexey Ivanov (Russia), Bas van den Berg (Netherlands), Ronald Garman (USA) and all other people who have funded release of this album during crowdfunding campaign. You helped a lot! Thank you!
Nikita personally thanks: Kate Sergeeva (for love, understanding and support), Ilya Kapralov (for being the good guy to deal with), my parents and brothers (for their patience and support), Allen Carr, Mikhail Litvak and Gleb Arkhangelsky (for their excellent ideas and books), Kjell-Ivar Aarli (from Legacy Of Emptiness for kind words, and info), all great Metal (and not so Metal) bands that inspired me, among them: Raintime, Kovenant, 2 Times Terror, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Twilightning, Lost Horizon, MyGrain, Labyrinth, Athena, Masterplan, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, DJ BoBo, Masterboy (please forgive me last two, hehe)
Live your own life, and no more templates for us all!
Ilya Kapralov‘s thanx to:
Nikita Merzlyakov – for his great contribution in our music, for his laborious work on music through the whole album. Really great work!
Kate Sergeeva – for efforts on texts and support of our band! Awesome!
Alexandr Zhuchihin – for his implicit help in composing, during rehearsals. Sometimes it’s very necessary to have a person, who can test what is composed already, play with you and make an advise to change riff or note, even a little, but this may be very cool finally!
Of course, great thanx to other members of our group – Dmitriy “Ian Breeg” Yanovsky and Ilya Mamaev.
And last but not least: greatest thanks and loud hails go to all our fans!
