What do you get when you cross 8-bit music with speed metal? DragonForce. That’s what you get. DragonForce is weird technical shit that sounds damn good. They defy labels but are considered power metal or speed metal and the reason is because they play at tempos that go beyond 250bpm. These guys are incredible musicians, literally violating their instruments, which is how they generate the chiptune style “Nintendo Metal” that has become a trademark of their music. Nonetheless, DragonForce is power metal, and perfectly executed power metal at that. When you listen to their music you end up asking yourself how they can pull that off on stage. But they do. It’s amazing. DragonForce is amazing. Metal fans gotta have these guys as part of their collection.
Fans of DragonForce will find that EMP carries not only DragonForce’s latest albums but also some awesome limited edition shit that you’re not going to find anywhere else. That includes vinyl for the collectors. We really dig what these guys are doing. It’s sophisticated, innovative, interesting, and we really don’t know of any other band that is doing the kind of shit that they’re doing with a guitar. It’s good shit. Fans of speed metal need to check these guys out.
