Known as the fastest band in the world, Grammy-nominated extreme power metal band DRAGONFORCE 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 eight 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 brought the next chapter in DRAGONFORCE history: "Extreme Power Metal".
Drawing from a wide range of influences, the band's sound combines the sing-a-long choruses of classic '80s rock with triumphant, uplifting melodies and fantasy-themed power-metal-inspired lyrics. As a nod to their passion for all things video-game related, the band frequently incorporates retro game sounds and melodies into their recordings and live shows.
