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.

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.

This is an excellent album which includes slower power chords in several tracks that Dragonforce has not played in previous efforts which are shockingly excellent for the speed metal band. The vocals are great and the song themes are positive as usual. I have not taken the CD out of my car for three days now nor stopped listening to it on my droid. If you are a Dragonforce fan or just a plain old rivet head like myself, I do not think that you would be disappointed.

One of their best albums yet. I was introduced to Dragonforce (not to mention the genre) by the song Cry Thunder, which is already after the new vocalist Marc Hudson was on board. Even so, I went back through their old albums and ended up buying all of them, because I loved their style of music. I got to the point where I felt like the old vocalist was superior, so I wasn't sure what Maximum Overload would be like, and even after listening to the 30-second song previews here on Amazon during the pre-order period (which don't do the songs justice, btw), I was afraid that their style had changed too much so that I wouldn't like the new songs. Still, I went ahead and bought it, and I wasn't disappointed at all. Three Hammers and Symphony of the Night are already a couple of my favorites, and Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash cover) couldn't be more perfect!

Overall, this is a must-have album for all Dragonforce fans, and you'll definitely want the special edition album with 5 extra tracks. I do miss the longer tracks from older albums, as the tempo is typically so fast that the songs end up feeling shorter than they really are, so the extra tracks help balance that out. Also, the last one is a short and purely instrumental track, not sure what the story is behind it, but it basically amounts to an epic shredding solo, very nice way to top off the album.
