This is funny. LOL. OK, onto my story as to why Dragonforce hold a special place in heart.
I first heard of this band in 2006 or something. Their CD "Inhuman Rampage" had just come out. I was at a friends house on a break from school and I mentioned the band to some of my more metal loving friends. So, we pulled up myspace and listened to one song all the way through, then another, than another, than another, than another. We simply could not get enough of it. Was it a bit overly zealous? OF COURSE. Was it a bit tech-tastic? INDEED IT WAS. But, we saw the merit in it. The next day I got "Inhuman Rampage" and listened to it over and over and over. For some reason, in that moment; I needed that level of ridiculousness in my ear drums. The lyrics are awful, the songs are cheesy; but the guitar work (on recording, as I have yet to see them live) I thought to be fantastic. I am quite over it now, but none the less at the time they had a special place in my heart.
I have not heard their new album, but I cannot imagine it sounding any different from all their other records. That is my two-cents.
