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?

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."

British metal band that formed in 1999. Also a band that almost nobody liked or even heard of until Guitar Hero III came out. Now, everyone says that they love Dragonforce, even though the only song that they've heard by them is probably Through the Fire and Flames, maybe Operation Ground and Pound. Everyone who likes them Post-GH3 likes them because they play really fast. The members are ZP Theart, Herman Li, Sam Totman, Vadim Pruzhanov, Dave Mackintosh, and Frederic Leclercq.
Pre-GH3:
person1 - hey, do you wanna listen to some dragonforce?
person2 - who?

Post-GH3:
person1 - hey, do you wanna listen to some dragonforce?
person2 - hell yeah, through the fire and flames!

An over-rated power metal band who's songs all sound exactly the same. Herman Li is not an amizing guitarist. Everything that he plays can be replicated by pretty much 75 percent of trained guitarists. All of his solos are uninteresting and have no soul. A lot of people think that because the song is dificult in guitar hero, they must be the greatest band ever. Also, they can't play their shit live.
Paul Gilbert would beat Dragonforce's guitarist in a guitar battle so easily that it would cause all Dragonforce fans to instantaniously piss themselves in unison.

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.

An international power metal band based in England. They are composed of six members from 5 different countries over 3 continents. They label themselves as "extreme power metal" because they incorportate elements of speed metal and thrash metal into their songs, and as of their latest album, Inhuman Rampage, they have added harsh backing vocals that can be heard on songs such as "Revolution Deathsquad". They replaced their drummer before the recording of "Inhuman Rampage" with Dave Mackintosh, formerly of England's symphonic black metal band, "Bal-Sagoth". Their songs are incredibly fast, although there is at least one obligatory "power ballad" on each of their albums. Most of their songs are at least 5 minutes long, with several around minutes in length. They are known for their energetic stage performances, and for their excessive alcohol consumption during concerts. This does not affect their ability to play, but the lead guitarist, Herman Li of Hong Kong, has been known to trip and fall on stage. They cite many classic metal bands as influences, such as Iron Maiden, and played at OzzFest in 2006. They have three major releases so far: The Valley of the Damned (2003), Sonic Firestorm (2004), and Inhuman Rampage (2006). Their first concert in the United States was cancelled due to the fact that they were lacking proper Visas, but they eventually played in April of 2006 at the Worcester Palladium in Massachusetts at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. They played second to last, with the last band playing being Gamma Ray.

Comparable bands to their style roughly include the following:
HammerFall, Blind Guardian, Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Dragonland, Angra, Rhapsody of Fire, and Demons & Wizards.
DragonForce is a highly talented band. If they are not "heavy enough" for you, or if the vocals bother you, then you should not be listening to power metal. People with no knowledge of music dismiss them along with all other power metal bands for having fantasy inspired lyrics, because they are most likely too obsessed with rap lyrics about homicide, drug dealing, and fornication.
