Biography

DragonForce is a band that was formed in 1999, from the remnants of band Demoniac under the name of DragonHeart. However, the band soon changed its name to DragonForce before releasing any commercial albums due to possible commercial issues with Brazilian band DragonHeart. Their career began with publishing of songs on the first incarnation of MP3.com, claiming the top of the site’s heavy charts. The hit song Valley Of The Damned reached over 500,000 downloads in the first few months.

Despite this, two of the original members, Steve Williams and Steve Scott left the band to form power metal outfit Power Quest.

The band has enjoyed increasing popularity over the years, publishing four albums and touring extensively while supporting artists such as Helloween, W.A.S.P. and Iron Maiden. Their 2005 tour in support of the Sonic Firestorm album included support from Angra and Mendeed during their passage through the UK.

On October 28, 2005 bassist Adrian Lambert announced his departure from the band. (Lambert later revealed in an interview that he had left due to musical differences with Herman Li and Sam Totman). Less than a month after Lambert’s departure, on November 23th 2005, DragonForce was signed to Roadrunner Records which released their album Inhuman Rampage in 2006. Lambert was replaced in 2006 by Frédéric Leclercq, who was made an official member after a performance on tour.

    Finally I saw them Live! Their were awesome! but Fury Of The Storm and Through the Fire and Flames (my favorite song of them) are better sung in studio by ZP Theart!

    if zp was still in the band and writing better lyrics than the current pop trash, the trivium guy wasn't doing guest spots, then the new album would be ok

    This is one of those extremely rare instances where a band I used to listen to when I was thirteen actually ends up sounding even BETTER to me than it used to.

    I like Inhuman Rampage and The Power Within. I don't like the new album and it's hard to say why. I guess it sounds like bit too generic power metal for my tastes.
