    I used to dig this band a lot. For a novelty act to have musicianship this good is something, I guess. The problem is, they really can't be much other than a novelty act, and the schtick is wearing really thin at this point. The musicianship is great, of course, but the fact that they're still wasting it on this same jokey cheese rock is just sort of depressing. If you missed it I used to dig this band a lot.

If you were tired of it two years ago like everyone else, this won't change your mind. Expand

    I really hope the real critics come to knock this shit to the ground. Seriously when did sweaty ugly soulless 13 year old start getting attention just because some idiots put it in a video game. It sounds like what happens when you give people with a deep hatred for music too much money and tell them they have to make a cd.

  1. Power metal may not be the most inventive musical style on the planet, but Dragonforce are making it more exciting than most anyone else has for quite some time.

    Ultra Beatdown is a relentless explosion of power metal serving as a superb master class for fledgling shredders on any instrument. [Sep 2008, p.152] [Sep 208, p.152]
  3. Those in the know can attest DF is merely coming into its own after years on the touring circuit.
