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.

    Only like the first 3 DragonForce albums, even so they are my all time favorite in power metal. Been listening to this band since 2006 since Inhuman Rampage was released and everything else in the genre has been underwhelming since. You could blame the nostalgia goggles, the fact they were my first metal band or just how god damn catchy theirs songs are, regardless I will always love those albums.

    I like The Game on the new album, but i dont like that they gonna play too few old songs by Dragonforce. Dragonforce doesn't play songs like Heart Of A Dragon, Where Dragon Rules or any soft ballads like Trail Of Broken Heart, Still they play TTFAF, Valley Of The Damned and Fury Of The Storm. They begin with Fury Of The Storm, for me a strong song, but why they skip so many old songs?

    Valley Of The Damned and Sonic Firestorm are still the 2 albums i like. Inhuman Rampage has 3 good songs.

    So is this band considered "decent" after Ultra Beatdown?

    Maybe they just weren't getting on/it wasn't working with them all together, I saw DF with ZP in 2009 and they were enjoyable minus the sloppyness of thee songs off Ultra Beatdown and I saw them last year with Marc Hudson and it was easily the better performance, they were on fire

    Valley of the damned was a masterpiece, the rest of the discography are just a rainbow and cheeselike abortion...

    I really dig the grooviness and thrash elements on "Maximum Overload". Great record! My favorite overall is Ultra Beatdown, though. That one is their special one to me.

    This must be the only band that can cause an elipetic seizure by just listening to them

    мне показалось или они и правда на разогреве у Epica? Не, ну обе группы хороши, но как-то это странно.
