DRAGONFORCE Kicks Off US Tour This Week!
DRAGONFORCE continues to tour in support of their eighth full-length, Extreme Power Metal, released last Fall via Metal Blade Records.
Produced in Los Angeles, California by Damien Rainaud at Mix Unlimited, Extreme Power Metal was also recorded, in part, on guitarist Herman Li's livestream channel on Twitch (twitch.tv/hermanli) with participation from the fans. Known as the fastest band in the world, the Grammy-nominated collective is based in London, England.
Their platinum-selling record, Through The Fire And Flames, brought them international acclaim and was featured as the most-challenging song on Guitar Hero III. Their energetic and humorous live performances have won them fans on every continent.
The group is known for their long, complex, and fast guitar solos performed by Herman Li and Sam Totman, who founded the band after meeting through a classified ad in 1999. Since then, the band has released seven studio albums, including Valley Of The Damned (2003), Sonic Firestorm (2004), Inhuman Rampage (2006), Ultra Beatdown (2008), The Power Within (2012), Maximum Overload (2014), and Reaching Into Infinity (2017). 2019 ushered in the next chapter in DRAGONFORCE history with Extreme Power Metal.
