Certain words which appear frequently throughout HammerFall’s music have a secondary meaning. The "Crusades" are a tour. The "Templars" are metal fans. "Steel" and "Swords" are the composite spirit of heavy metal music. "Infidels" are those who deny us the metal. The "Holy Land or promised land" is a metal concert, and the "Dragons" are all of life’s obstacles. The "Hammer" is the physical manifestation of metal: the music, the chords, the riffs, the drums and the guitars.
