Hello to all of you members and wedsite users this is Kimi01and I am proud to be writing my first review for the site and all its users feel free to contact me on anything you think I write that is wrong. My first ever review will be on my favourite band Dragonforce and their firt album Valley of the Damned. Dragonforce is a power metal band who pride themselves on writing and providing good quality music for their listeners. Their music is based on video game music. The power chords combined with Herman and Sam's guitar shredding solos creates a purfect mind blowing blend of melody abd rhythm. Straight from the start they jump into the role as England's biggest power metal group.

Dragonforce's lyrics are based on a worrior theme. They are about standing for what you believe and riding too battle 'warrior with sword in hand/travells fast across the land/for freedom he rides' (track 2 Valley of the Damned line 5) I think this is good because people should fight for what they believe in. The music is tied well with the lyrics. The chords change pattern works hand in hand with the lyrics to get the feel and meaning behind what is said. ZP Theart is the lead singer. And can sing passionately with the lyrics. Whilst the rest of the band sing echoes and backing vocal giving a heroic surrounding sound.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall I love the CD. it's stage melting solos creats a work of musicl art. The best songs are innovation of apocalyptic evil combined with valley of the damned, Starfire, Heart of a Dragon and the all time classic Deciples of Babylon. This is a great CD and I have already recommended it to all of my friends. I would definetly buy it again if it were stolen.
