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.

    In my opinion new album is better than previous one. They find their own way to composing interesting shorter songs. I like this thrashy guitar riffs and Matt Heafy's backing vocals! I give 8/10 to this album, but it's getting better and better with every listening!

    Suspyre has nothing to do with power metal... although I know US folks have different idea of what power metal basically is. Also I suggest you to go check Lost Horizon and come back with repentance :O

    There's not much creativity in power metal, it usually comes down to who can get the most dynamics out of the narrow vocal style and varied keyboard parts. Dragonforce actually does that better than 90% of the power metal bands I've heard, but it really doesn't get more awesome and dynamic than the first three Suspyre albums in power metal.

    @iPowers yeah, now they sound like a generic power metal, that's way better...
