I've just realised something...

The melody for Dragonforce's 'Through Fire and Flames' is the same as The Eagle's 'Hotel California'...


How odd... just thought some of you would find this fact ammusing...

i know this is kindof off topic, but are there are any good dragonforce songs that someone who has never heard them before should listen to? im trying to expand my musical view, and i want to start with dragonforce

well, 'through fire and flames' is a good song IMO, is one of their latest tracks... You can't really go far wrong by just downloading a few random ones... Not being harsh, but their style is their style if you know what i mean... for a modern band, it's very fast 80s stadium hard cheese...

agreed, pretty much everything is the same, good, but the same. If you need specifics, get my spirit will go on, thats basically the ultimate dragonforce song.

See, i like when you post like this dude, it makes sense, and its in the right place. Good job!

yeah, Through Fire and Flames is a good place to start.

On topic...you know, I never noticed that before. I'm gonna have to give the 2 songs a good close listen. Nice find dude :cheers:

I actually dont find much similarity between those two songs.

Do I have crappy EARS!!???!??

Dude, Fury of the Storm, totally.
That harmonized guitar solo kicks major ass.


And am I the only one who thinks the band Rhapsody is similar to DragonForce?

Listen to Soldiers of the Wasteland and Starfire. Both mega cheesy but also pretty dang good. Also, Valley of the Damned is pretty awesome, Hermans guitar interlude is sweet.
As well as my personal long term favourite Disciples of Babylon- the acoustic breakdown is awesome.
Hmm, I'd say Rhapsody and Dragonforce are fairly similar, although from what I've seen/heard Rhapsody are a lot more conceptual + Luca Turilli is better at playing clean than Herman Li (or I think so anyway)

I was just about to say: the eagles > dragonforce, ah well.

Of course there are always licks or melodys 'stolen', might not exactly be stolen, but re-written, or something, how many guitarists do 12-13-15-13-12 kind of licks....yah.

luca turelli is my love bunny!!! :D

dragonforce are crappy fad compared to rhapsody, imo

yeah.. listen to valley of the damned, my spirt will go on ect.
i dont actualy like there new album they've gone well overboard with everything,
too many pinch harmonics without vibrato :no:

I agree, with both points.

Although alot of Rhapsody stuff isn't as same/same as Dragonforce's stuff, not to say that Dragonforce's same/same isn't good.

I like Dragonforce and Rhapsody both a lot, but for some reason... "Dawn of Victory" by Rhapsody gives me a Dragonforce vibe... Hmmm...


P.S. Pokemon is pretty much dead, but the gameboy games still kick ass, and I am not afraid to say that, oh, countless hours have been filled with training... Theres always something to do in those games :p

no rhapsody and dragonforce are not similar!

rhapsody is MUCH slower... not hyper... more neo-classical...better...

Lucky bugger, my school banned every emulator website, and we're not allowed to upload things of memory sticks.

I'm suprised how many people like dragonforce, i get really sick of them very quickly.

I listened to inhuman rampage i think and didn't think it was worth all the hype

You can't do that, the mods outlawed it.
