Sound — 9
By buying this album you'll get the best of the best of all Metal bands. Although they aren't known for being particularly good at live shows, they are known for their freakin fast sound and for their awesome guitarists. Not only they are fast, they are just what music should be: good to hear. They call themselves "the extreme metal band", and if you decide to buy this CD, you'll understand why. All you need to know is that their sound is flawless.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics aren't particularly great, but they aren't bad either, they are just fine and fits the music perfectly. But I doubt you'd ever buy a DragonForce CD for the lyrics, right? Also it's a matter of personal taste. ZP Theart (yes it's his real name) has a quite powerfull voice and usually he don't scream, although there's still room for improvement as sometimes I feel like he would be a bad singer if there weren't backing vocals.
Overall Impression — 9
I think the best songs are Throught The Fire and Flames and maybe Storming the Burning Fields. Trust me, if it were lost, I'd buy it again. Overall, they are even more melodic, fast and powerfull than they were in the previous albums. That's all I could ask.
