so last night i went to go see a show with dragonforce and killswitch engage and chimira(sp?) and he is legend. the latter sucked and got boo'd, chimira was good, killswitch rocked(the show was in worcester, their hometown, so they had to be amazing) and dragonforce was sick.

now ive seen some of the videos on youtube and ive seen threads pertaining to them sucking and it made me question why i like dragonforce so much, and i was nervous about seeing them live because i really like their cd and i didnt want to ruin my impression of them. after seeing them live, however, i have to say that they are amazing and i dont understand why people hate them so much.

anyone explain? and do not say that the guitars are overrated because im sure nobody on here can play like them. if you choose to respond to this, come up with a reasonable response and dont just be an idiot and flame for no reason.

Edit: im working on getting the video up on youtube.

They obviously can't handle the speed that Dragonforce can play at.

i don't have much of a response to this, other than to say that Herman Li and Sam Totman are very sloppy guitarists. they are better than most people on this site, but prolly not all. There was a thread like this (prolly several) in the shred forums, run a search and see if the posts in those threads answer your questions.

They have a power-ranger name. (DRAGONFORCE, ACTIVATEEEE!!)

But in all seriousness, I'm not sure. Maybe it's because people only watch the vids where they mess up. Like that 'I bet you can't play this'. That sucked.

I guess I was lucky when I saw them then, was an ace sound

Because they are so fast, pretty much 90 percent of the time. The speed loses its appeal because it's repeating so much. Expression just does not come from constant speed. I can write lots of stuff on par with dragon force but it is just so one dimensional. Dimebag writes a book with one solo while the DF boys just continually tell us how big they think their c0cks are.

I mean, it would be amazing to watch. But as far as listening, you get the same emotion as if you were listening to a snes. Tones are annoying too.

Because the guitars are lame. I'll openly admit that Herman Li can play like 100000x faster than me but I'll like him when he can write something with a decent rhythm. If I wanted to listen to video game music I'd plug in my nintendo not buy tickets to their concert or buy their cd.
#15
Honestly, Dragonforce is a very good band, but their music is really pointless. The guitars are good, but the lyrics are so cheesy and bad that their music just becomes a waste of time. Not to mention that all of their songs sound almost identical.

don't get me wrong. i used to like them heaps i bought Sonic firestorm and i thought it was a great album.. it was fun especially for high octane stipping (jokes) Anyways i was so excited I couldn't wait for the new album but it dissapointed me.. It was basically the same as the old one. they had even re used some lyric lines.. It saddened me greatly, they just need some diversity maybe.. That being said i still think fields of despair rocks..

if by sick you mean sickening....then yes.

Well, they ARE good guitarists, but I think a lot of the material they write sounds the same. And they are a bit too cocky.
#27
Herman Li is a skilled guitarist, but you can tell he's playing at the very peak of his technical proficiency. He struggles to play like he does. Compare him to guitarists like Eric Johnson, Satriani, Vai, or Malmsteen that can consistently pull of their song flawlessly in concert. He's just not as skilled as the fanboys would like to think.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Ok please in future use the search bar.


only the first thread is remotely like mine, asking why people dont like them, there rest are simply about the band...and mine actually asked for a legitimate reason for why people dislike them, more of a general conversation, not a pointless thread. so next time read the thread before you go and try to play mod.

i love dragonforce. its musical taste. most people only listen to music they can learn to play in 3 minutes...y there is a huge emo craze. dragonforce is musically perfect in my eyes, i dont see how they could possible be better. dragonforce>you

I saw DragonForce in Philadelphia last Wednesday... and yeah... He is Legend was horrible and only played three songs before getting booed off stage...

Did the guy from He Is Legend air hump the drummer and guitarist at that show too? :\

The reason im "playing" mod is because ass holes like you dont use the search engine, the links i have provided do have reasons why people do not like them, and why not post in one of those threads before starting another one, or even better post in the official dragon force thread....n00b

because people who look in the official dragonforce thread are dragonforce fans, not people who dislike them. stop being a retard and get a life. you arent a mod, get over it.and if you type in the word "dragonforce" in the search engine, how many non dragonforce related threads are there? a whole bunch. now i dont know about you...asshole...but not everybody has enough time to sift through the old threads that have the word dragonforce in them but are completley unrelated. maybe you have no life. i shouldnt hold it against you. n00b.

Dragonforce have absolutely amazing guitarists. Their "keyboarder," if that is right, has great talent, although is a little flamboyant.

It took me almost two hours to learn through the fire and flames. Normally it takes about ten minutes to learn a song. There are definately better guitarists out there, but those who say they suck have to learn that there is more than one way to judge talent. These include: speed AND ABILITY TO WRITE!!!
The world is a stage, make it yours!

I like the band, but damn it the keyboard and the vocals ****ing ruin the band (same goes for every other power metal band)
