Ive not really been a fan for a long time, and i did start likeing them because of Throught The Fire & The Flames, but my friend has been a fan for a long time. and since i have started to like them i got the albums and i must say that Prepare For War and Revolution Deathsquads are my favourites.

I have 2 things. 1st, why are you hanging around with kids years younger than you? But thats not the point. The real point is why do you give a dam? Why does it piss you off? Theyre ignorant, like most other people in the world. So what? Anyone who hears a little talking about throught the fire and flames would probly want in on the guitar hero conversation but no. Youre that one person who instead of joining in the conversation, meeting new people, just stand there in the back going 'I hate them! They dont have the level of fan-dom that I do.' And Dragonforce is amazing, but youre being a little baby about something that doesnt concern you in the least.

Whoo. Been awhile since Ive been on NG and that felt good totally pwning and n00bz. Haha, newgrounds talk.

Well, you know... it would make your life easier if you burned them a CD, then not only would you be enlightening them, but you would deal with less and less kids like that because They'll burn CDs and poof... less rants... which I particularly aren't very fond of anyway.

I was forced to listen to 'inhuman rage' all the way through on a car ride. I must say, the drums are the exact same in every song.

And about the annoying ass middle schoolers, I completely agree. I've liked slayer for a long time and when I look at peoples' ipods what do I see, Slayer standing out among all the shitty prep bands and crappy one hit wonder rap artists. And no surprise it's just raining blood.

I don't plan on going to any of their concerts, so that doesn't affect me.... and it's because they get insanely drunk before they get on stage, Herman Li has fell over at least 3 or 4 times during shows.

Just for those who don't know, here are the lyrics. Feel free to sing them in the shower or in elevators or at funerals. Nothing says, "eulogy" quite like the word "interactiveodular"!

Don't need quarters, don't need dimes,
to call a friend of mine!
Don't need computer or TV,

I'll call for pizza. I'll call my cat.
I'll call the white house, have a chat!
I'll place a call around the world, operator get me Beijing-jing-jing-jing!

Only a couple of people know actually heard of them. So I'm guessing all you people who are saying they suck are rap lovers? Dude, Sam Totman may be a drunk, but Herman is no joke. His solo's are kick ass! Dragonforce is so awesome! Valley of the Damned, My Spirit Will Go On, and Fury of the Storm are the best songs.

Dragonforce FTW!

Sorry, but the only song I've heard from them is Fire and the Flames... I may be an ignorant fuck, but I find that a band usually has one or two good songs and then the rest are sub par. Could be wrong with Dragonforce, but like I say; ignorant fuck here.


And if we run outta bullets? Heh, baby, they're gonna wish we hadn't....

I know it's aloud, fuck by all means they can, but my friend who loves them saw them live and filmed it, and even he admits they were bullshit through the whole show, and on some other vids I have seen they fucked up badstyle.

You can't judge an entire genre. Just because you don't like that of what you've heard, does not mean it's bad music.
Power metal = Mainstream metal = shitpoop.

Actually, power metal is one of the least popular forms of metal, and one of the only ones to still display any amount of musicianship. Most metal bands these days(tho there are many exceptions, just none that are played on the radio, tv, or ozzfest) don't even play solos, or anything complicated... anything, just simplistic hardcore punk riffs, played at normal tempo, claiming to be "metal."

Dragonforce follows the old power metal ethos set forth by Dio and Manowar.

HOMOEROTICISM AND MOAR SPEED, SPEED > TECHNIQUE!

Listen to Any Dragonforce song, then listen to The Drapery Falls by Opeth or Advanced Corpse Tumor by Necrophagist.

You'll be saying "Dragon-who?" in no time.

Power metal is not even close to one of the least popular. Want evidence? It made GH3.

And it's not that great, it's just annoying tremolo picking and some power chords. Then they play easy scales at 324978 notes a second in the studio, then suck shit live.

^ This.

Necrophagist is easily my favorite. But my favorite song of theirs is Symbiotic in Theory. I'd like to see it played live. I don't think they ever have.

Yea, but opeth is a progressive metal bands with death metal vocals and heavy parts thrown in, and necrophagist are a death metal band. Neither can be comparable because they're in completely different genres. Great bands, tho.

But, if people want a better power metal alternative, check out grave digger, if you're willing to ignore the annoying vocals, and also, blind guardian. Both are way more talented and better examples of power metal than dragonforce. Hell, i'll even recommend iced earth, tho i'm not a huge fan of them.

If you guys say that Dragonforce sucks then why did Steve Vai invite Herman to play by him? Sure ZP is bad at performing and so is Sam, but Herman play wit his freaking tongue occasionally.

By the way, ZP, Herman, and maybe Sam made another band (demo band or whatever) called Shadow Warriors. Based all about ninjas! I have to admit it's is kinda crappy though.
