DragonForce is a trailblazing force in the realm of extreme power metal. Acclaimed as the world’s fastest band, their Grammy-nominated journey has been nothing short of legendary. The catalyst of their international fame came with the release of the platinum-selling masterpiece, “Through the Fire and Flames,” which became the ultimate challenge for players on Guitar Hero III – Legends of Rock, solidifying their status as musical pioneers.
In every corner of the globe, DragonForce has earned an army of dedicated fans, thanks to their electrifying and entertaining live performances, infused with infectious energy and light-hearted humour.
Beyond their original and unforgettable epic compositions, DragonForce is celebrated for their signature long, complex, and lightning-fast guitar solos, masterfully crafted by the virtuosic duo of Herman Li and Sam Totman. United by destiny through a fateful classified ad in 1999, they founded the band and set the stage for an illustrious musical odyssey.
A storied discography spanning eight studio albums attests to their creative ingenuity, starting with the fiery intensity of “Valley of the Damned” (2003) and the relentless “Sonic Firestorm” (2004). The unparalleled momentum continued with the chart-topping “Inhuman Rampage” (2006), solidifying their position among metal elites. The Billboard Top 20 hit “Ultra Beatdown” (2008) and the anthemic “The Power Within” (2012) kept the flame burning bright.
In 2014, they unleashed “Maximum Overload,” followed by “Reaching into Infinity” (2017) and the electrifying “Extreme Power Metal” (2019). Each album showcases the fusion of classic 80’s rock sing-along choruses, uplifting melodies, and fantastical power-metal-inspired lyrics, evoking a sense of triumphant grandeur in every note.
Fuelling their music with a love for the video game world, DragonForce artfully incorporates retro game sounds and melodies into both their studio recordings and thrilling live shows, further enhancing their unique identity.
