A power metal band from Europe consisting of 2 lead guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, a singer, and a keyboardist. All the members of the band are very talented. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a dumbshit. And anyone who says all of the band's songs sound the same must really suck at listening to music...if that is even possible.
Many people say DragonForce's music takes no talent to play simply because it IS fast. That is just stupid in itself.
The band is a good example of power metal and just because bands like Rhapsody of Fire or Blind Guardian have been around longer doesn't mean that DragonForce are "wannabes" of them.
The singer's voice is decent and fits the music well (it is power metal).
While some of the band's songs may sound slightly similar because of the high tempo, none of the songs are even close to being "exactly the same as the one before it".
"DragonForce is amazing!"
"No, they suck."
"Wow, you are a dumbass; have you even listened to their songs?"
A Power Metal band who managed to get through three albums without anyone noticing that every song was exactly the same as the last. Exactly.
Billy Everyteen: Wow! This band is so amazing! Herman Li is god! I'm going to have to listen to more of their music.
-Half an hour later, after having sampled more of Dragonforce's library of songs-
Billy Everyteen: Haven't I heard this song before?
The Fallout Boy of Metal. Loved mostly by 12 year olds, most fans grow out of liking them when they get in High School. The majority of their fans don't play guitar or are extremely bad at it (in terms of technical skill) and usually don't realize that speed is not some heavenly gift, it can be achieved by anyone.
DragonForce sound like video game music.
Dragonforce is a power metal
band that somehow managed to gain a huge fan base and a ton of media attention, even though better bands exist. Dragonforce isn't a terrible band, however their fan base has caused them to become vastly overrated, turning the group into one big fatass moon that is now blocking the better bands from coming into the light. Their vocalist also sounds like he needs to go to a different genre, as his voice doesn't fit metal at all. Dragonforces guitarists are quite talented actually, but they aren't quite as good as the fans make them out to be.
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.
Dragonforce fan "Hey dood! Did you see Dragonforce live! Oh man, that was the most kickass thing i've ever seen!!!"
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."
1. The most intense band in the history of man. Their music (if it can be called that, for it is truly much greater than mere "music") contains a power so great that it can consume one's soul.
I'll mess myself if DragonForce comes to the United States.
To complete a project, task, assignment, etc as fast as possible, paying little/no attention to detail, finesse, quality of results, etc. Adapted from DragonForce, a power metal band from England known for their intensely fast songs.
"I really don't care about this class, so I'm just going to dragonforce the final project."
The band from which Herman "Shred" Li plays.
Dragonforce kicked ass last night!
Mainstream metal faggotry with very little musical talent.
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.
Dragonforce fan: OFMG DRAG0NF0REC IZ TOTTALI DA BEST METAL BAND EVERZ!!!!!!!one!@#@11eleventy!
Educated metal fan: No. Get the fuck out, idiot.
