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, 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.

    Also, Fields of Despair is severely underrated. Awesome riffs, great vocals....I don't get why it not only isn't more popular, but is often said to be "bad"

    I would rank their albums Sonic Firestorm > Power Within > Maximum Overload > Valley of the Damned > Inhuman Rampage > Ultra Beatdown

    Everything released by this band after ZP left is disappointing... but very good and solid releases up to and including Ultra Beatdown!

    I find their their albums since Ultra Beatdown being their best, even though I like their older stuff as well. UB and MO are my favorites by them.

    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
