A band which originated from London with the members Sam Totman, Herman Li, ZP Theart and some drummer and bass player (Who cares?)

They combine fast playing with upbeat lyrics to give a feeling of power to those who listen to it. Their lyrics usually contain stories of myth and legend. Herman Li was given the chance to play with the world's greatest Shred Virtuosos. (Paul Gilbert, Sitriani, Vai, Satch, Malmsteem) He played.

Herman Li speeds himself up with a computer in the studio and is a sloppy player. Sam Totman writes their music which is ALWAYS in the key of C major. Both Herman and Sam both fall off of the stage regularly and lick balls at their own solos live because they can't play as fast as their studio recordings because they're sped up. Their solos are also comprised of simple scales with small variations. They're also out of tune in many of their concerts

Their drummer's good but that's about it.

Herman Li once appeared in a video lesson of how to "Sweep Pick" He failed miserably. It was like hearing a cat being raped by a sharp ice stalactite

They majorly stuff up the solo

a band that sounds amazing on the album but live play in lower keys so their vocalist can still sing and change the fast shred guitar solos to fit their actual shredding ability
"dude, i started listening to (insert band name here) a few months back. they came to town last night and played a show. i went and was very disappointed by what i heard. they can't play worth shit live."

"sounds like a Dragonforce."

An amazing British power metal quintet that contains an ensemble amazing musicians. However, the band is best known for their ridiculously fast, percise, and technically proeffecient guitar players, employing dueling guitar solos, dualing guitar solos, and an array of sound effects (especially on their 2006 album "Inhuman Rampage"). Besides the fact they probably have not acknowledged the possibilty of playing a song that is even at mid-tempo, these guys shred so fast and so hard that the universe is willing to overlook that.
Holy cow! DragonForce shreds the balls of all unworthy bands!

The most kick-ass band ever with the golden god Herman Li as a guitarist.
The. Best. Band. Ever. Is. Called. DragonForce.

Dragonforce: THE Dragonforce. Every instrument in the band has been known to play so fast that they create their own hyper-dimensional vortex. So fast that the human brain cannot process the speed at which the notes are being played. Even though they sound fast now, many scientists and researchers actually believe that the music is processed by the human mind 5.7 times too slow than it is actually played.
If anyone ever heres anyone say that Dragonforce is not Epic or speed metal, you must follow the instructions listed below:
-Crazy glue headphones to their ears
-Turn on the long version of soldiers of the wasteland
-Crank it
-Proceed to throw victim into a flaming pit
If the above is executed with precision, the victim will no longer be alive, but will have listened to the most amazing song right before they died.

A band no one would have ever known about if it weren't for Guitar Hero II.
(A kid walks in a room wearing a Dragonforce shirt)

Kid 2: "What's Dragonforce, some stupid band?"

Kid 1: "Yeah right they rock!"

(Kid 2 plays Guitar Hero II and walks in with a Dragonforce shirt the next day)

Kid 1: "I thought you said Dragonforce was a stupid band?"

Kid 2: "I heard them on Guitar Hero II, they rock, I'm gonna get all my anime friends to wear the shirts!"

A geek/nerd/Fantasy land metal band whose songs sound the same. They often use the lyrics:"So far away."and "We will carry on through the rain or something like that."

They also have a gay keyboardist.

geek: Hey duuuuuude, which song is this?
geek2: I don't know duuuuuude. It's obviously from dragonforce, because of the speedy drums and the super high solos filled with gay fingertapping. I just can't tell though, it sounds like every other dragonforce song! Oh, here's the sweet-ass keyboard solo!
