Few genres evoke the imagery of viking armies setting fire to their enemies with flaming arrows  like that of symphonic power metal – especially played by bands that hail from Sweden. Composed of members from metal acts like In Flames, Ceremonial Oath and Dark Tranquility, Sweden's Hammerfall formed in the early 1990s and are just about as epic as epic heavy metal can get. Singer Joacim Cans wails over Oscar Dronjak’s technical melodic riffs for a blend of metal that would be the perfect soundtrack for setting a castle on fire in the 16th Century (or riding around Loop 1604 or whatever). Basically, Hammerfall is the perfect excuse to wear armor and get crazy at a metal show. Chances are you probably won’t be the only one to do so. With Delain, 8pm, $31-$76, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St. — CC
