Through the Fire and Flames: possibly the world's most overrated song

Page 1 of 2

everybody thinks through the fire and flames is sooo hardcore and impossible, but all it really is is a speed solo played in Cm and people that are so upsessed with it obviously havent heard alot of other songs. people think its so hard to play because its the last song in guitar hero, and that apparently makes herman li and sam trotman gods

Herman Li is an amazing guitarist - easily top 5 of all time.

TS has no clue what he's talking about.


Seriously hope that's sarcasm...
Feed your mind.

im not a fan of dragon fource but you have to give credit where credit is due that solo is fast and very technical and they're for the genre they're in.

mindless bashing wont get you very far.

everyone knows that dragonforce songs are played at half speed then speed up for the CD so its hardly hardcore playing but it is very technical and i cant play it anyway so who am i to critisise. It's a good song but ive never heard anyone being obsessed with it.

ok this would be an example of someone who has no idea what an amazing guitarist is. herman li is good, no questions, but everybody thinks hes like the best in the world because his song is the hardest song on guitar hero.

Actually, everyone hates them and that song, so it's not overrated.

And DragonForce is great.

What an incredibly well thought out and original opinion. Nobody has ever said that before, never. I commend you, I mean really, just a huge pat on the back to you for this immensely useful thread.

...

Now THAT's sarcasm.

You might be right, but this is hardly new. Bad singer, overrated genre/song/guitar players. Quite unoriginal IMO, as stuff like this has been around since the late '70s or early '80s. They might be technical, but they lack any kind of musicality.

I tend to agree. He's good, and I dig the whole Dragonforce thing (it's cheesy but I think that's what they were going for) but no way is Herman Li in the top 5 of all time.
His chops are better than mine but he is no Vai.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

this is the pit 99% of the topics arent big deals. if u dont like this topic then dont post in this thread
#31
the only thing wrong with dragonforce is the fact its cheesy to the point its funny, the reason people are impressed by them is because they havnt anything like it, the reason we arent really that impressed with it is because most of us hear have a wide knowlage of music and probly listen to a wide variety and we know its not that special.

looking back that probly sounds arrogant or snobby
but oh well its how i see it

And if you don't like the song quit bitching about it.

And do you really think, by the response you have gotten, that any one really likes the topic of this thread? No, didn't think so.

Uh, nope. about 60% of the pit topics aren't big deals. Not 99%. This thread is pointless, but i love it. It's funnnnayyyy!

The fact that your argument is based on guitar hero adds to the humour
Sweet.

do u really think anybody cares about what you think as to why i started this thread? im sure alot of people like this topic so that other people can realize how overrated that song really is and how mediocre of a guitarist herman li is. thats why i started this thread. maybe you dont like it. i think its a discussable topic

Well, it appears that you care what I think because you keep replying to what I say. I agree, Herman Li is overrated, but its been said before and there is no need to discuss it. I'm done with this thread, I'm not wasting my time with this anymore.

The fact they have their own signature guitars disgusts me.

Too bad its been discussed to death.
