    This is my favorite Dragonforce album, and I can't wait for the next (while this one should hold me over for a while). If you are a Dragonforce fan, then I highly recommend buying this album. I agree with ThomasB, listen to the actual album in its entirety before you spout random hatred at this band with info you got from Youtube comments. I also agree with HannahC, find the bonus tracks somewhere and listen to them. They are amazing. Love this album. Love this band. Hats off to D-Force for being awesome again. Expand

    Dragonforce has pleased me with no end. It is great for all things, gaming, working out, and even to sleep to. I have listened to all of their songs at least 10 times each. This album, however, was one of their best. It really brought new life to the world of Power Metal. The lightning fast solos and powerful lyrics made this band what they are today and i hope continue to power their way through the world of Power Metal with even better albums and songs. Expand

  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.
  2. 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.
