Dragonforce is a band that has a certain greatness like no other too it. Their music brings out an image into my mind of a magnificient group of Gods breaking through the clouds in the sky to infuse the people of earth with their music (rescueing them with it). It revitalizes any spirit. Dragonforce brings out what I like to call Orchestral Metal and even brings me to remind myself of the old days of playing Mega Man for the Super NES. The fast paced power metal that they do inspires me.

The singer can project his voice quite well and it shows throughout the CD. Combined with the "rising star"-like lyrics it makes a resounding epic of voice trail through the skies of the earth. The lyrics are very deep, somewhat emotionally, but more deep as in picturesque. I have had a few moments where I felt like he sounded like the dude singing the original Poke'mon theme song (although very rare).
Overall Impression — 9
Many people say Dragonforce uses the same pattern in every song and all their songs sound the same. They don't know what they are talking about. The CD, Inhuman Rampage, is literally an Album for a new age of Metal. Of course you have the famous "Through The Fire And Flames", then we have "Operation Ground And Pound", and for a step slower than normally (bringing diversity to the CD) there is "Trail Of Broken Hearts". Honestly, there are not many bands I would compare this too. If I had to choose between Ozzy and DF, then Ozzy would win, but between something such as Metallica and DF, I would choose Dragonforce. I would definitly buy this album for my friends so they can listen to the awesome hammer-ons and pull-offs of DF.
