Dragon Force: Ticketnest

Sara Sara

DragonForce (aka DragonHeart) is a British power metal band created in London, United Kingdom in the year of 1999. They are known for their dual guitar harmonies, flamboyant, speed and style, and epic guitar and vocals, as presented on their most recent album `Inhuman Rampage`. DragonForce initially created in 1999 from the leftovers of a lot of extreme metal bands like Black Metal band Demoniac and many more On the October 28, 2005, bassist Adrian Lambert declared his departure in order to raise his young son which later discovered that he had music differences with Herman and Sam. On November 23rd 2005, DragonForce was signed to Roadrunner Records in the United Kingdom, France, Australia, and New Zealand, who released their most recent effort, Inhuman Rampage, on January 9th, 2006. Band s musical style involves:

Emphasis on speed, twin-guitar harmonies.

Lyrics of a fantastical or epic nature.

Use of background choral singing throughout.

Optimistic and uplifting chorus sections. (musically and lyrically)

Video game influenced melodies and guitar noises.

DragonForce admits that their music is not produced as wholly serious and the lyrics, those posses normally to fantasy subjects like battles, swords, quests and heroes. They further admit that their music base on fantasy-related materials such as video games counting "Wonder Boy in Monster World" (a game for the Sega Megadrive console), and have lyrical themes which are sometimes similar to those of, for example, The Lord of the Rings ( http://www.ticketnest.com/theater-tickets/Lord-of-the-Rings/index.php ), relating to fantasy subjects and battles.

On the band s first album, Valley of the Damned, they particularly emphasized on guitar sounds and melodies defining an `epic` sound, along with a technical mix of bass and drum compositions. This produced a `thundering` sound. The arrangements were more centered on voice and melody producing a fantastic, epic sound true to the power metal genre.

The second album, Sonic Firestorm contained blast beat style of drumming, usually limited to the death metal and hardcore genres, was adopted into DragonForce s playing, providing support to their newly born extreme power metal genre.

Band s third release, Inhuman Rampage continues their technical guitar based melodies. The keyboard plus extended keyboard solos are noticed in this release, featuring Vadim`s accelerating impact in the band. Growling backing vocals like to those found in black metal can also be heard prior to special effects on vocals. DragonForce acknowledged themselves as one of "extreme power metal" genre (DragonForce.com, Dec 2005).

There are few who think that "extreme power metal" to already have existed before DragonForce took the term like they mention bands that blend power metal with extreme metal influences named Children of Bodom, Wintersun and Kalmah have been mentioned to as such the harsh vocals are featured in these bands, and are one of the major requirements of the `extreme` tag. Nevertheless, this sorting of "extreme" power metal is not necessarily what DragonForce comprises on, because they mainly focus more on the speed and thunderous attack of their playing. Also, because of the fantasy themes that present the band, DragonForce have repeatedly been linked with epic metal that also features Rhapsody of Fire, Hammerfall, and Blind Guardian as this is typical of power metal as a genre. In a fresh interview in the British magazine "Total Guitar", DragonForce guitarist Herman Li charged metalcore band Trivium that they play "like a bunch of fifteen-year-olds", stirring a lot of criticism from Trivium fans against DragonForce.

Conversely in, another recent interview, Matt Heafy of Trivium jokingly stated, "We tried to get them thrown off Roadrunner after we heard about that," disclosing these comments were not meant to be taken seriously as the two bands are actually good friends "Nah, we weren`t offended- we thought it was hilarious".

The comments were maybe taken out of refrence given Herman Li`s and Sam Totman`s frequent use of sarcasm and tongue in cheek humor that normally culminates in semi-serious mocking remarks; particularly in relation to each other`s guitar playing ability plus the guitar playing ability of others.
