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.

    Blah, now they start to be metalcore and bring a guy from Trivium to howl like a hungry beast. That's not Dragonforce anymore, I used to like this band a lot (their old stuff, looong time ago). The only good thing about it is that Herman and his solos are still there. Since the new singer came, now it's only Dragonfail.

    dragonforce solos are one-of-a-kind, for good or for bad, so in that sense they're pretty unique

    I'm not saying they're some kind of genre-spawning super band, they're unique in the sense that for a number of years they were able to shamelessly play this kind of hyper cheesy, one-dimensional power metal and achieve a lot of commercial success (they were on fucking video games!!!). Naturally they will have banged lots of chicks in the process. Like I said DragonForce >>>>>> you. End.

    The solo is crap? What the fuck is wrong with you guys?

    The Game is so fucking awesome! Those riffs are so refreshing coming from DragonForce, and they're totally kickass. As are the harsh vocals. Yeah, the solo is kinda crap, but overall, it's a magnificent track. Easily one of their best. Hoping the rest of the album is more like this. Will be the first time in years that I've actually cared about DragonForce. :P
