^i agree with all of that...

but do you really think they give a cr@p about some little thing like that?... you can tell theyre disinterested by the looks on their faces... they looked like theyve just picked up the guitars and done a random little thing so they can get out of their quick as they can...

i still dont see how anyone can judge ANYONE on one short video clip anyway...

:D Sorry dude i didn`t make myself clear. You need to exercise a level of control over what the guitar mag puts out in your name.  It may well be that they were playing around & taking the piss for all we no, but you shouldn`t let anyone put out something that makes you look stupid. If people think after watching this Vid that there pr*ts then they have no one but themselfs to blame.

If i was asked to turn up play some licks for a guitar CD-Rom/DVD i wouldn`t have turned up with a disinterested attitude. It might give people a wrong impression of me & these people maybe & probably are CD buyers.

I`ve heard these guys album [ inhuman rampage]  they can obviously play but in this case they`ve made prats of  themselves

I wish I'd seen that clip before I bought Inhuman Rampage, I could have saved myself some money :wink:
I see a rainbow rising
Look there on the horizon
And I'm coming home

It`s actually a very very overated album & to be fair Power Quest do it better.

bah... dragonsuck ..

t's all gimmick and whammy.. sorry, but a 5 year old that figured out how to make nintendo sounds with their guitar can do it.

now making it sound like a robot w/ just tapping, now that takes some skill.

or like r2d2 with just a metal ring.. that's innovative.


you all should buy Get out of my Yard and sell your guitars.

Damn that was messy, maybe they are a bit overrated...


Perhaps their rider is a little over specced, or just too long in the pub beforehand ?

Dragonforce make me laugh, I think they're great. A lot of people make the mistake of over-analysing them and in doing so completely miss the point! Listen to their lyrics, read their interviews, they don't take themselves particularly seriously so why is everyone else doing so?! They are just having huge amounts of fun and are lucky enough to have engineered themselves into a situation where they can make a living doing this, if you are looking for artistic merit then you will not find it with dragonforce. You will, however, find people enjoying themselves and this is what really creates their appeal.

For what it's worth, their guitar playing pisses all over most other guitarists abilities it's just that they have reached the point where they recognise that there are far more enjoyable and satisfying things to do in life than attempting to be the most inovative guitarist since satch or vai!  :lol:

SAdly I didnt like them live either
One of the few bands I have had to walk out on at a gig
they were truly terrible IMO

They had no sense of dynamics- - no light and shade
It was all 100mph stuff and the same with the vocals

As for the I bet you cant play this clips
check out the Michael Romeo clip
Very musical and pleasant to listen to
There is a guy who has a lot of control over his playing

That's exactly what i got from them when i saw them a couple of years ago. The support band were much better than them i thought, they had alot more showmanship.

I can't believe the ignorant and harsh comments in this thread and I thought the people on this forum were such down to earth people. Threads started just for bashing are just plain stupid why bother?

Check out the parody version of 'betcha can't play this'.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s10s7vsBU4o

Statements like 'betcha can't play this' are very demeaning for beginning players and you're pretty much asking for an @ss whoopin' or somebody taking total p!ss out of you.

Why would I even want to play something like that? What purpose does it have in a song?

Rant over. :wink:

Power Quest played a local club (Bradford Rio) about 2 years ago and I saw them totally by chance, it was only 4 to get in - best value for money in a gig I've been to! They were exceptionally good, and as far as Power Metal bands go I do think they were better.
