Alright, I'd like to have this topic spam free. No "He sucks", put some thought into your post.
I'm keeping this out of the DragonForce fanthread because they will all support them. I want both sides of the story.
This debate has been going on forever. Does Dragon Force speed up their studio work, or do they play legit?

Here are some points from both sides that I cooked up myself.

DRAGONFORCE SPEEDS IT UP
-They play crap live
-Their vibratos, solo, and speed on album is too fast
-Studio is the only place they sound decent

DRAGONFORCE IS LEGIT
-People like John Petrucci, Buckethead and Paul Gilbert play blisteringly fast- why can't Dragonforce?
-They are always wasted live (my cousins eve told me of their shows being delayed because they weren't drunk yet)

I want to hear what you think. Are they real or fake?

Reporting a legit thread?

You damn moron, you are the ignorance that gives the internet a bad name.

I'm sorry I can't contribute anything to this topic, OP. I don't know enough about the band either way to make a legit point.

I'm gonna say they speed it up, but I'm only going off the few youtube videos and few songs of theirs ive heard, its probably not too solid of an opinion.
#7
Nah they don't, I've seen them live a couple times when I was visiting my cousins. They played damn good until they got drunk. I think they're alcoholics.

I like to video record myself when I'm drunk. It's like a mini-movie. I love fapping to the sex scene.

I don't think they do. In the studio, they have as many tries as they want to get it right and they can split up sections of songs into separate sessions.

The amount of alcohol they drink probably contributes to the sloppiness live too.
#15
He sucks


No, I'm just kidding, I've never seen them live and I think they suck in studio no matter how fast they go... so maybe i'm not kidding
#16

I think they speed some of it up but try to play it fast without doing that. And yeah i heard they really are terrible live.....a friend said he went to a show that D-Force was at and one of the guitraists (not sure, but i think his name is Sam?) actually broke his strap while playing!

92% of teenagers have moved on to rap. Sig this if you think most new popular music sucks.

They've admitted to slightly speeding up some of their stuff, but most of it is how they play.
Live = one chance to get it right
Studio = as many chances as they want to get it right.

In all honesty, who gives a ****?

I enjoy listening to Dragonforce, and I don't really care how they do it.

I like listening to the New CD when I just want some shred. I've never seen them live but I'm planning on going to the Mayhem Fest this summer. If you think about it... There are plenty of artists that sound worlds better on their albums than they do live...
