and ... Dragonforce!
Dragonforce's "Valley of the Damned" will have those of you who love "Lord of the Rings" (JRR Tolkien) as well as fast, powerful, epic metal, in a trance.
You will listen to this album and sometime next year you will finally turn it off. It's just that good.
So anyone searching for a real piece of EPICNESS should be shot if they didn't check out Dragonforce's "Valley of the Damned", as well as Rhapsody (notably their album "Tales from the Emerald Sword Saga").
Dragonforce's other album "Sonic Firestorm" keeps with the epic sound, but incorporates much more speed and technical ability, so if you enjoy speed metal, go for that instead.
Or... GET BOTH! And fly, you fools!
So how good actually are these 8 songs? I love 2, 3, 4, 6, and 9. Revelations isn't as good as these, in my opinion. Starfire is so hard to get into because its so much slower than the other songs! I'd say that its an okay ballad. Track 8 is like Starfire in quality.
I don't think the production for this album is that great, but the writing talent makes up for it. Think of how we still love Images in Worlds by Dream Theater (is that what its called? Can't remember.......). Its because of how good it is - not the production. I would recommend Dragonforce to about anybody. There aren't any bands who sound like Dragonforce. Some power metal bands I've heard include Hammerfall, Helloween, Brainstorm, Blind Guardian, Grave Digger, Primal Fear, Sinergy, Manowar, and Falconer, to name a few. Nobody sounds like Dragonforce.
When you get the time, go read some of my other reviews and say if they helped you or not.

Awesome and amazing. Starfire has to be one of the greatest power ballads I have ever listened to.Published 16 months ago by atothewr
The CDs came in fine. The only superficial thing that took a star was that the top hinge of the case was completely destroyed. Otherwise, the rest was perfect.Published 16 months ago by Brian Goubeaux

It's okay metal, but really it sounds just like everything else from Dragonforce. There is nothing to distinguish this album from anything else they've done. Read morePublished on August 18, 2013 by Xylob
