Editorial Reviews

The melodic rockers released a second album, Sonic Firestorm, in 2004- here, the band honed skills and pushed fast-lane tales of fantasy to new levels. The mixing and mastering have been preserved; the packaging is enhanced and 'Cry Of The Brave,' a song

The band Dragonforce is a very interesting unit indeed. They not only combine the factors of being musically diverse along with a completely technical level of play; but they include a level of speed that at times will make you surely think that your CD is skipping instead of playing. I was literally blown away when I first heard "Sonic Firestorm" and as you listen yourself you will find that you are in the musical equivalent of a hurricane. Starting off with "My Spirit Will Go On", you are quickly brought into the band's world and what they opt to accomplish on a record. As I said there are blistering fast moments and there are bands that play for the sake of speed sake alone. Not so in the case of Dragonforce, for throughout each song the members never seem to lose pace with one another. The song maintains its structure and does not ever seem to fall apart where you could expect such action to be the case under these conditions. It was really something to close my eyes and envision this being done in a live sense. In most cases playing music fast simply for the sake of it will not impress me all that much so it was refreshing to see this level of speed being showcased on top of killer technical prowess. Chops would be an understatement for Dragonforce.

A lot of the album follows along the same course of speed as the first track, but that does not mean to be taken as the songs sound all alike. They just use the same formula on the entire CD. There is one track that effectively serves as the ballad of the disk and that is "Dawn Over A New World" . The tune is nicely done and being in the middle of the disk it allows you a breather before the ass-kicking again.

A friend of mine threw this on for me, who's a guitarist. It was "Fury of the Storm" that I first heard. My initial reaction was, "Yeah, yeah...a bunch of notes..." Crazy fast tempo, shredding guitars, double base kicks out the ... I kept thinking the song was over, but no, here came another guitar solo. It was like a roller-coaster ride. You think they are about to let you off, but no! back up again you go. I was literally worn out by the end of the damn thing.

But, unlike most speed metal songs that can just turn into a bunch of background noise, despite the all-out SHREDDING guitars, for me, the song never seemed to lose it's HOOK; the underlying melody was still there.

You see, some bands believe that you can just amaze by thousands of notes at blazing speed. To me, this is synonomous with a movie that goes all-out special effects. But if the acting or plot suck, the overall reaction is poor.

This is where Dragonforce amazes me. Their guitar shredding takes music to a level I have never heard before, yet they still manage to keep the melody & hooks. This is simply one of the best bands I have ever heard, period.

The last CD to really "amaze" me by sheer guitar shredding, where my jaw was literally about to hit the ground, was Megadeth's Rust In Peace. (Before that, it would have to be some of Eddie Van Halen's work...)

Now, in no way do these guys sound like Megadeth, but their melodic shredding is just as groundbreaking. It had me in AWE, just as I had been 15 years back. It was speed metal (minus the Megadeth thrash) taken to an all new level.

Then I heard "My Spirit Will Go On"...

These guys are NO novelty act. It's not just the guitars & speed rifts...

On my first listen of the track "My Spirit Will Go On", I could not believe what I was hearing. The drummer sounds like he's on speed, the singer hits all the high notes, and the guitars...well lets just say they are nothing short of phenomenal. Herman Li and Sam Totman are the axe-wielding duo who tear up this album with their twin-blast tapping (Fury of the Storm) and hyper-shred harmonizing (pretty much every track). You can tell the band is full of energy and loves what they are doing. I suggest you have a free, open mind when listening to this album, and just have fun. Here's a rundown of the individual tracks:

1. My Spirit Will Go On- This is one of the classics on the album, and I think one of Dragonforce's most well known song (if they have one). The intro starts off clean and then in come the keyboards and the thundering double-bass. There's a nice little guitar harmony and ZP comes in singing the first verse. I cant say much for the lyrics, but I don't take them seriously. The solo in this song is jaw-dropping. There's tapping, sweeping, ultra-fast harmonizing and everything in between. Oh yea, Herman loves to use his whammy pedal too. If you are a fan of shred, you will enjoy this solo. Overall great song and album-starter, 9/10.

2. Fury of the Storm- Starts off with another great harmony, then a blast beat by the drums behind it. This song has a more "dark" sound to it, but the chorus is pure power metal glory. The solo is great, and has an amazing "twin blast" tapping section where Herman and Sam harmonize. Fun song, and great solo 9/10

3. Fields of Despair- This might be my favorite off of the album. The mood is more "gloomy" I guess, but I love the vocals on this song. Solo is nothing short of amazing, and I give this song 10/10.
