i dunno how anybody can say dragonforce "suck", it might not be to your liking but they definately do not suck, and they may seem a little sloppy at times....but so do a lot of guitarists, i've seen Zakk Wylde play live and his picking hand was all over the place at times!!!

If you listen to a song called starfire by dragonforce, you'll hear how good they can be, and i'm not saying that as one of their biggest fans.

Come on children, play nicely - if you can say something nice, then don't say anything at all  :wink:  :roll:

One thing is certain though, I couldn't give a rats arse if they can play the cleanest swept arpeggios the world has ever seen - their music SUCKS SO BAD that it doesn't matter.  I thought they were a wind-up when I first saw them on the tv, they obviously didn't take anything positive away from watching Spinal Tap.

Haha, maybe i shouldn't have made this thread. There is too much hate in this thread, and it was a joke thread anyway, i wasn't actually being serious. I can prove that because i'm going to see Dragonforce in a few months lol!

lol good thread.

That video was a total mess around, its tongue in cheek not a serious challenge (like some of the other ones in the series seem to be), and if anyone knew anything about the band they would see they are all class A jokers and dont take themselves seriously...i mean how funny is not being able to play your own riff in a 'betcha cant play this' video? Pure Spinal Tap.

If Dragonforce suck so much and arent talented, then why is YouTube full of copy cat players who CANT EVEN GET CLOSE to the solos and songs, where as every man and his dog on youtube can nail Vai, Satch and yngwie licks to a T??  :roll:

^^ that one is better if you want 'proof' (3 albums of insane playing not enough?), another mess about clip with some fast, cleanly played licks in it.

I agree they arent always good live (if ever!), i have seen them 4 times and only once did they NAIL it (Graspop 2005). They were on about 11:30am, every band after didnt seem to match up to the showmanship, energy and entertainment value... and there were some killer bands (in status) that day.

I agree with the ignorance comments, i CANT STAND jimi hendrix or SRV and fusion stuff like Shawn Lane and Guthrie, but i realise and respect their skills as players all the same...

DF may make shite music to some peoples ears, but they are a talented bunch and calling them talentless and shite is a bit of slap in the face to anyone who couldnt do a 1/4 of what they do (and i bet that includes EVERYONE whos bashed them on this and other threads) yet is inspired  to put the hours in to practice and get to a level where they can play the same type of music.

Fair enough opinion = i dont like them

Gets on my nerves = they are shite and talentless = Statement of fact by a person who is judging them as if they are themselves the all powerful law of who can like who for what reasons


I always say: if XXX band is so shite and talentless and you hate it that others think otherwise, then record a cover of a song of theirs or play BETTER stuff over a backing track, and guess what? YOU CANT :lol:

Seems to be a trend these days of bashing bands outright with the ole blinkers on, the Blabbermouth generation of  'music fans' is here it seems  :twisted:


/rant off, and by the way, i feel the same about any musician\band.. eg Kirk Hammett, Trivium, Cradle Of Filth etc etc not just DF

*edit* wow what a rant, i typed it now so have to stand by it :P

I'm really into technical guitar playing and its quite clear Dragonforce do not suck in terms of technique. If anyone has the audacity to contradict me please post a recording of yourself playing something by them? Also stop having a go at them calling them a joke it shows lack of self esteem. Theres lots of music we don't all like but how depressing would it be if we just spent time saying it sucks, why it sucks.

Oh yea Crazy_Joe is the DEVIL!

This thread is a real sad one to read as there are some really unwelcome personal issues being raised and this board has never been the place for that.

Keeping a sense of perpective and good will on this board is really the only issue that I give a sh*t about not DF.

Sadly my glib past participation within this thread is limited to agreement  regarding a comment about quality control.

I think it's silly to let anything into the public domain which could result in a negative impact on your (band's) image.

A first view and literal interpretation of their "Betcha can't play this" vid does just that. They come off looking bad.

The alternative view is that the video is satirical and done as a pisstake - if so they unfortunatly didn't make that clear enough and once again missed the mark.

Either way, if I managed them that video would have never seen the light of day.

Let's stick a fork in this topic... it's done.

:D

1 st My comments were based at making sure you guys on this forum would be aware that there is Quality control issues with what you do as Afghan pointed out the band didn`t do convincingly which is why they came over badly. Correct !

2 The argument that goes "if you can do it better" is & has allways been the most banal & F***wited argument any moron can give.......why?.......Because it denies anybody the right to an opinion or to be able to voice an opinion. The writer Nick Hornby in his book "Fever Pitch" wrote. "In sport you get found out, you don`t hear about bad 100 meter runners or of some world class striker living in some garret in poverty somewhere dieing for his art. It`s not like being an actor or a musician or writer....in sport you get found out".

The trueth is NOT the same in the arts. If the argument is "if you can do it better or do it to prove to me blah blah " then this must mean that the Spice Girls are better than everybody on this forum & most if not all of the current Metal,Rock,Pop acts in the world. Why ? because they sold more albums & singles  than all of the current lot including The Arctic Monkeys so "if you can do it better" still feel the same way about that argument now do we.......[ & i didn`t even mention Take That or Steps or the X factor etc etc]

The trueth is i`m entitled to my opinion even if you don`t like it & believe it or not i`m also entitled to express it. If you want me to list my reasons why i don`t like DF then i will. I put in my threads to show that i wasn`t disliking them for banal reasons ie there heavy Metal etc.. thats why i mentioned Power Quest. 2 members of which come from DF !!

I accept fully that there are people on this forum that DO like DF great !! i`m very happy for them. There also [& some did ] entitled to say they do. Thats great to ! but i`m allowed as are others to disagree with them.

Your right i probably cant play as fast as they can BUT i can write better Metal tunes & play with more feeling than they  do. Wether i get a record deal or not or wether i get to tour around the world or not will have nothing what so ever to do with wether i`m talented or not BUT wether i get lucky or not. Which is why talentless F***wits can still have hit singles & music careers. As Nick Hormby said "In sport you get found out" BUT not in the arts you dont !!

Now you can stick a fork in it because its done.........
