The music is still DragonForce.
Patrick E.
This album is closer in style and sound to their earlier albums than the Power Within.

This release is their best since they got the new singer. My first reaction after a couple of listens is that I'm going to like it better than any of theirs except perhaps the how-can-you-possibly-top-this Sonic Firestorm.

The songs on this release are shorter; the 8- to 10- minute epics of their earlier years are no more. The trade-off is that they are clearly better musicians now, and the production is better, with excellent sound. My only quibble is that I'd like to hear the bass a little more clearly.

The music is still DragonForce. There is plenty of melody, no detuned guitars, no growling. There are slow passages, but there is plenty of mind-blowingly fast dazzling guitar work, only in this release there is much less of the straight scales and arpeggios that we heard on their past releases. What we get here is much more actual melodic development and complexity.. plus a few places where my ears perked up and I said, "wait a minute, this is DragonForce??" (and not because those parts were slow or soft...). You'll see.

Anyway, I've been a DragonForce fan since I first encountered Through the Fire and the Flames on Guitar Hero III and promptly bought all their releases then available. I still play Sonic Firestorm several times per week (excellent workout or work music). Everyone has to evolve and change, or they'd stagnate. I like DragonForce's direction with this release a lot. Solidly recommended.

The remake of "Ring of Fire" is excellent (and it's kind of hilarious to hear it at DragonForce speed)! I wonder what Johnny Cash would have thought of it.

Iron Maiden. Judas Priest. Helloween. Blind Guardian. In Flames. Children Of Bodom. Slayer. Metallica. Megadeth. Dream Theater. Yngwie Malmsteen. These are all obviously heavy sources of influence for Dragonforce. But anybody that knows the first thing about heavy metal music knows that all of these bands are mere launch-pads for DF, because the U.K.-based extreme power/speed metal collective actually has a sound that, while not completely all their own, is very unique and inventive. It boasts miles and miles of spectacular solo skills, blazing leads, and propulsive thrash riffs, in addition to its usual truckload of overtly cheesy lyricism and soaring melodic vocals. But Dragonforce's sound differentiates from that of most modern day power metallists mainly in that it overflows with mind-boggling, face-ripping, head-spinning musicianship, including impossibly technical guitar work, and an airtight interplay between it and the rhythm section.

But the sixth full-length studio effort from the much-ballyhooed sextet is much different from anything else that they have ever recorded before, except for maybe 2012's "The Power Within." (See, that two-year old album marked a bit of a turning point for Dragonforce, as it was the first to feature a song that was mid-tempo without being ballad-esque.) So while the speeds remain blistering for much of the duration of the fifty-minute playing time, DF do occasionally ease off of the gas pedal, exploring various other tempos and moods, and toggling back and forth between them and the band's usual cut-throat speed metal policy.

As a result of this increasingly intelligent songwriting, the individual track identity has also gone way up this time around.

While their Power Within album remains my 1st favorite, this album definitely lives up to its name. My favorite songs within are Three Hammers, Symphony of the Night (makes me want to play Castlevania), and Ring of Fire. They strove for a different sount and most certainly succeeded in shaking it up. Their passion is still as ever present in this work as with their past works! I hope others who buy this album enjoy it as much as I do!

This album is closer in style and sound to their earlier albums than the Power Within. The band seems to be more confident in the lead singer and took full advantage of vis vocal range and power. There aren't slower tempo songs like Seasons on this album but there is a return to the experimentation with different musical styles in the guitar solos similar to those in Ultra Beatdown. I was skeptical about the cover of the Johnny Cash classic Ring of Fire. The more I listen to it, it is becoming one of my favorite tracks. The bonus tracks are good and not remixes of the regular tracks so they are a real plus. My only complaint is that the drum track seems a little muted compared to previous album. Bottom line, this is a Dragonforce album. Melodic, great vocals, incredible guitar and drums, and insane speed. If you are new to this band, you need to listen to the album multiple times before you form a real impression. There are so many great elements, it can overwhelm you. If, like me, you are a long time fan, crank up the volume and enjoy.

This album shows where DragonForce is going with their new singer and drummer. This album also includes a cover by the band, "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash. It's a fantastic version while stays true to the band's strengths and the albums' overall tone. Every track is uplifting, like an 80's rock anthem on speed which is utterly whimsical. They do use an abundance of solo's now on every track but that's what makes DragonForce brilliant which may confuse new listeners. Worth a purchase indeed, as a fan of metal or a fan of rock it is utterly enjoyable.
