Dragonforce are a band the vital statistics of which are well known by now. Album sales figures in the millions, the Grammy nod, the sold-out world tours, the lightspeed guitar work and that Guitar Hero tie-in. What is spoken about less is the band behind the reputation. The stories of the Dragonforce on-tour merriment are famous, but less so the enthusiasm and dedication of the musicians responsible for the heavy metal major league outfit.
You may know about Herman Li and Sam Totman’s numerous awards for their virtuoso skill on the guitar, but you may know less about why they came to do what they do. The two Dragonforce guitarists fell in love with touring, and with performing their music live, while playing in their previous band that turned them onto the path they now stride so confidently.
‘The Power Within’ is the sound of that refreshed band with a new lease of life. It is the most varied Dragonforce outing to date. The album was recorded through 2011, once more at LamerLuser Studios in London and Thin Ice Studios in Surrey, with some parts being laid down at Herman’s house in the South of France and Sam’s place in California. Featuring both their fastest songs so far – no mean feat if you’re Dragonforce! – as well as songs like ‘Cry Thunder’, which see Dragonforce bringing their sound into a more restrained territory pace-wise without sacrificing intensity or hooks.
Prepare to feel the Force of the Dragon once more.
