Three musicians: Nikita "Mad Warrior" Merzlyakov (guitar/keyboards), Ilya Kapralov (guitar), Alex Moroz (drums) from Legioner band are joined by Nikita "Tjalvi" Valamin (vocals) and Vadim "Komposter" Nikandrov (bass). Old Legioner's material is assumed as a basis. Band works on new songs as well. In the end of 2006 two demo tracks are released (Breakaway and Fury Of The Nordmen).
2007:In the April 2007 the work on the full-length album starts. 9 songs are chosen. Few gigs are played using "Legioner" as the band name.
2008:Juanuary brings decision to change the name of the band. So the new name is taken - HAMMERFORCE. Some gigs are played. In summer Alex Moroz and Vadim Nikandrov leave the band. The work on the debut album is finished in August. The band goes to the Tico Tico studio (Kemi, Finland) to mix and master the recorded material. Alexander "Ariets" Zhuchihin (drums), Ilya Mamaev (guitar) and Anton Shostakovsky (bass) join in October-November.
2009: "Dice" is released in Russia and CIS in January 2009 by Perekrestok Records and in Japan in November by Avantra Records. Regular disagreements, controversies and the total lack of mutual understanding make further joint creative work with vocalist Nikita Valamin impossible. And in October he leaves the band.
