Any articles on the matter?

no articles saying they r fake just a lot of hate from people (if thats wat u meant) i like Dragonforce personally and dont care of they r fake im just wondering others opinion.
#6
their tone just sounds really digital, if that's what you mean. I've also heard they suck ass live, so it may be computer generated.

I saw them live, I thought they sounded fine. Alot of people don't like them though, my guess is because they suddenly became so popular and some people tend to hate popular stuff. I have been listining to Dragonforce since they were called Dragonheart so I have way too much of a history with them to stop listening just because they are popular. I do hate all the noobs who wear Dragonforce shirts all the time, and when you ask them to name a song all they can come up with is "Through the Fire and Flames."

Lol people ask me all the time at work which of their cds has Fire and Flames on it. They just wear dragonforce shirts because they think that they are fans cause they played it on guitar hero.

^ i see people like that all the time

anyway, no they're not fake. Just because they enhance things in the studio to get ungodly tone, that doesnt mean they're fake. Just look at idols like tom delonge and synyster gates!.... oh wait...

You know what, just to spite my friends who say that Herman Li is the best guitarist ever, I learned Through the Fire and Flames.

Tell me again how this qualifies as shred?

I don't have a beef with the band per se, just the fact that all my friends swear up and down that he's the best guitarist in the world. I showed them the solo to Outworld's self-titled song, and they still insist that Dragonforce are faster.

They are like Metallica (kind of), because they are good and have talent, but their talent is grossly overrated. Their large mainstream success and being featured on GH3 sealed the deal that most people who really, really like metal will dismess them.

They are good, but not as good as people set them out to be. Their sound to me sounds like they are using a neoclassical-type distortion but not playing neoclassical, which is never a good thing. They would be tolerable for me but the singer's voice just put the hatchet in the head for the band for me. His voice makes reaches such high pitches so that whenever I hear it I seriously question his masculinity.

Everytime I have my guitar and tell people I play metal that's the first song they assume I want to play for them. Then they don't stop bugging me for 20 minutes and then I finally either play the wankery intro with the hand over guitar so it looks harder than it is or I just tell them to **** off and die in a hole.

Also, Fury of the Storm is the ****.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Maybe they could play better live if they weren't so friggin hammered. It seems like they nail entire soings out of sheer fluke.

Fury of the Storm is way better than THrough the Fire and Flames anyways.
The clock strikes midnight
When tomorrow and today collide
The moon is at its highest
And the twilight seems fitting
For in these moments
The light at the end of the world
Shines like a thousand suns....
