are the best guitarists ever just because they play fast. Being skilled at guitar is NOT playing really really fast, it is being creative and being able to do things hardly anyone else can. Look at Jimi Hendrix, he played with his teeth for the love of Jesus! Dragonforce cannot play with their teeth (I'm not trying to insult Dragonforce, I'm just making a point that Jimi is a better guitarist.) And before any homo tries to give me a thumbs down, Jimi Hendrix is the best guitarist that ever lived, go to your music store (the people there know real music) and ask any employee who the best guitarist that ever lived was. They will all say Jimi Hendrix, no question. Also, a lot of their songs sound very much the same. Not all of them, but enough that would make people point it out. Also they get old. Even the Dragonforce fans have to admit their style gets old kind of quickly. Fast guitar playing gets boring after a while! And one last thing. Dragonforce is NOT the best band ever. Not even close. Once again, I'm not saying they're bad, they are good but there are much better bands.
Straight person: Dragonforce is OK but skill isn't based on speed dipshit.
Gay person: Yeah it is!
Straight person: Dumbfuck you don't know shit about guitar!
Gay person: Yeah huh through the fire and flames is the hardest song on Guitar Hero.
Straight person: Guitar Hero is just a game! Idiot it's not real guitar! (Even though it is fun)
-Half an hour later, after having sampled more of Dragonforce's library of songs-
Billy Everyteen: Haven't I heard this song before?
When recording in the studio, Dragonforce manages to achieve an epic feeling to their music, however their live performances are probably among the sloppiest of metal bands today.
Set "Yeah, if by kickass you mean sloppy riffs and a singer who can't sing or keep up with the music."
Dragonforce fan "Shut up! Dragonforce is the heaviest metal known to man!!"
Set "O rly? Is that what you think? Nice job proving you don't listen to very much metal. GTFO."
Everyone makes them out to be the gods of metal.
Herman Li can play fast. Okay...that makes him the best guitarist ever, I guess.
Not to mention their vocalist's voice is not suited for the genre in which his band plays, AT ALL.
Listen to some real power metal, faggots.
Educated metal fan: No. Get the fuck out, idiot.
