I think you're jealous that you can't play as fast...

i pretty much disagree, i like their solos....even if they do speed them up in the studio

They just wish they were born 20 years earlier, let them rock/suck.

Well, I don't even look at Dragonforce as a serious band.

Dragonforce aren't so bad... and they CAN play fast even live (maybe not like they do in the studio, but still very very fast), just wath some live videos.

Quote by Winsbury
theyre good guitarists, no doubt about that, but i dont think that theyre good songwriters...


no id put it differently, they arent brilliant guitarists, they can play fast but its fairly sloppy. there are many many much better/faster guitarists out there in metal but somehow dragonforce have got this label of being incredibly fast

the songs however are epic and catchy, and they are great showmen live

I don't enjoy their songs, their lyrics are terrible, and they can't even perform live properly. If I wanted power-metal, I'd listen to Blind Guardian or Helloween, not this wannabe ****.

Yeah for me singing about running through fire and stuff doesnt do much. Some catchy riffs and epic solos, but in terms of lyrics, message etc. i gain nothing from thier music.

Never say a band sucks though, they seem to write what music they like

They aren't sloppy, there are actually very clean. You're just pissed because you can't even play as fast as Sam Totman.

They are a fun band not to be taken too seriously and i doubt they even take themselves very seriously.
there tunes are catchy and feel good and there lyrics are incredibly cheesy fun, if you dont like them dont listen, theres plenty of depressing songs out there about how much the world sucks.
frankly, putting on some dragonforce cheers up my day.

I think that comment from the magazine was tongue and cheek, it wasn't meant to be taken serious. Come on, Herman Li even labels his style of playing Nintendo Metal and then there is the whole fantasy element. They are just a band out there having fun, sure maybe about 20 years too late for the style they play but they're still ok. I just wish they juxtaposed the speed thing a bit more with some slower passages, cause a 60 min CD of 64th notes and whammy pedal is a bit of a sensory overload....
#25
They can play fast, but they're very sloppy. I saw this video of Herman Li trying to sweep pick and it was very sloppy, even when he played it slow.
#26
They are a fun band, *but* not one that I would take seriously in anyway..
I can listen to dragon force for about 10 minutes.. and then my brain turns to mush and I become very uninterested.. there aren't any hooks ya know? it's all just.. afoieawnfh;ovnav;ona;ofi a;ofnaeofnaewofiewiofn .. except on a guitar..

They play fast in studio, and I don't think you can perfectly replicate that live every night. I like the songs, the whole epic dragons and knights and stuff is cool. You can't honestly say there is another band that sounds like them. The "epic" sounding voice, the ridiculously fast sounding guitars, the video game noises. I'm not saying they are the most unique, original band in the world. But I think people think too critical of them, they are just another damn band. Geez, the world would explode if we all had to live up to your standards!

"the human brain can't handle our solos" - I don't know where you saw that, but I bet he was just kidding. I don't think DragonForce is supposed to be taken so seriously. Gaah, why are most metal fans (not all, raise your hand if your not) so critical of everyones words! I've said sometimes to friends that no one rocks harder then Dave Mustaine, doesn't mean its true, (though it is true... SEE WHAT I DID THERE!).

Damn, you don't like dragonforce. What a rebel. Wanna hear a riddle? Who in a crowd of five is dumber than the guy who follows every trend? The guy who hates every trend for absolutely no reason. Honestly, have you ever even heard them? It doesn't seem like half of their bashers have. Their solos are far from speedy blurs. I don't like them myself, but i don't go spouting my hatred for every band i dislike all over the boards. Enough people despise dragonforce that it stopped being news a while ago.

Or maybe i'm just able to listen to music faster than 150 BPM. Anyway, that wasn't even the main point of my post. I don't consider myself anything even close to a dragonforce expert, in fact, besides 'Fire and Flames...' i haven't heard any of them, yet, i'm not going around the board flaming them. If you hate a band that half the forum hates, there really isn't much need for a thread about it. Frankly, no one cares.

I find that DragonForce focus too much on being fast, not on (insert something that you think is more important than guitar speed in here), and all the songs on Inhuman Rampage sound the same to me. I have them on my iPod, but can only really listen to one song max before I have to switch to something else.

Basically... I'm not a fan.
