**** 4+, ich glaube den Schweden geht so langsam die Puste aus. Alles ist noch gut höhrbar (außer das Ärgernis "Carved In Stone"), aber kein Song dieses Albums würde es bei mir auf eine Best Of der Band schaffen. #15 in GER
**** In my opinion this album is the "worst" plate in great Hammerfall career but still it´s worth to listen. Every band have one album which not keeps the quality of others plates and not everytime is bad at all. This is the case. The sixth studios album Threshold has some own highlights but in my opinion there are not songs which has some influence in Hammerfall career. So no hits there.
Still the opener and the title track "Threshold" or first single "Natural high" is not far from great stuff. "Rebels inside" is slow-tempo song which includes great guitar riffs and on live stage looks great. The second single "The fire burns forever" has very catchy moments like the other up-tempo stuff "Howlin' with the 'Pac" with great guitars nice lyrics (We will crawl back from hell - Reclaim the crown). One of the songs which I really likes here are "Genocide" with really catchy refrain and a closer song "Titan". The instrumental "Reign Of The Hammer" is not bad at all but is almost similar to instrumental song from Renegade album. The song "Dark wings, Dark words" is inspired by books of Song of ice and fire ( Game of thrones TV series) and is very slow but for me it is something stucked between ballad and normal song. "Carved in stone" and "Shadow Empire" are not special too but still I like it. Actually Hammerfall is the only band from which I like every single song. Ofcourse some I like more then others but still I like all stuff.
Threshold is worth too listen but if you really want discover what Hammerfall are capable of as a band, I really must recommend another albums of them. But that plate is not bad at all so Threshold should not missing in every collection of Hammerfall fan.
