go through any dragonforce album, fast forward every song to 1:30, see how original they sound. The more and more I hear mindless shred paired with non-changing vocals the more I get a little sick. Anyone agree with me? Is it me or sdo they produce music so 18 yr old Anime junkies have something to make fight scene music video's too. you made a world of warcraft video showing the slowest game ever and set it to a 200 tempo song.... you really are the pinnacle of manliness"


sorry had to vent, anyone agree with me? or am I just hating for no reason. Feel free to flame but atleast make it funny

Oh and I love vai, and satch, and all that, I feel thats more meaningful shred, they don't just fly through everything. Suspended animation is a good example

I disagree.

It's a few guys, writing and playing music they love. Plus, they're making money to do it.

Dream job, only con is, the music they love gets continually bashed by n00bs, who for some reason I will never understand, listen to music they don't like.

Don't like it? Then don't listen to it.

Yes all their songs are eerily similar. I still like them, the vocalist kinda grew on me, they're good live.
#5
It's power metal. What do you expect?

Herman Ri > you


Also, I'd take that out of your sig if I were you.

I think that they're amazing and that their music is WAY more than just "mindless shred"...
Sure, the lyrics are really cheesy, but they're just going for that "epic" sound. I love 'em.

hahaha, go watch videos of them online, look at the audience, and then feel dumb for saying millions is out of the question.

They do make a lot of money, I don't know about millions though. I will say that they have a lot of endorsements...

no he doesn't, I asked him, he said he makes about 30k per year but gets free stuff (endorsements) and that the record label pays for what he needs to live on. and he also looks up to better guitarists than he is, such as vai, inf act he said he doesn't even know what he plays half the time, jokingly.

I did something like this once a while ago with a Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys album. If i remember correctly, 17 of 22 songs started with Lil Jon yelling either yeah, okay, or what.

Edit: But on topic, Herman Li starred in the Grudge, and i liked that movie so hes okay with me.

That's not why we were loling at the 'millions' idea. Very few bands actually earn THAT much money. Regardless of how good or bad they are.

i dont really like them, but i dont hate on them (i have one album by them). herman li is a better guitarist than i could ever be. i would like them if they had a different vocalist and didnt try to sound so epic all the time.

I don't have an opinion since I haven't really listened to them but, I hate when people say something like that. So what if he's a better guitarist does that mean only people better than him can have an opinion on his music? If you didn't mean it like that then why say it atall?

Because in the harsh world of guitar, elitism is what makes you a man...
