DragonForce-MaximumOverload

DRAGONFORCE will release Maximum Overload in the US on August 19th via Metal Blade Records. Maximum Overload is available for pre-order HERE, in CD, digital, and limited edition vinyl formats! While there be sure to check out the band’s new video for the song “The Game“.

Today DRAGONFORCE unveils the second song from their upcoming masterpiece. The second single, entitled “Defenders” is being premiered exclusively by Loudwire. Get an insight into guitarist Herman Li’s thoughts on the song and get a first listen HERE.

Produced by Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios in Örebro and Varberg, Sweden, the new opus will be the band’s first ever album involving an outside producer, having historically opted to record themselves in association with Karl Groom.

Working with Jens gave us a different perspective on the songs and a different sound dynamic. We always previously recorded in our own studios but recording in Sweden made us focus and maybe drove us harder, Jens certainly did, he doesn’t believe in days off!” said guitar maestro Herman Li.

Maximum Overload” features a couple of surprises, notably a guest appearance on some of the songs from Trivium’s Matt Heafy. “We’ve always gotten on really well with the Trivium guys and it was great when Matt had a couple of days to spare and agreed to weigh in on some of the songs!” added bassist Frederic Leclercq.

The album also features an all time first for DRAGONFORCE…a cover song! Guitarist Sam Totman explained: “Just before the last Australian tour, our manager suggested it might be interesting to do a cover for the next album, something we’ve always refused even to consider. Because we had all had a couple beers every band member wrote down 3 songs each and we compared them all, just for a laugh. I wrote down ‘Ring Of Fire’ by Johnny Cash, an idea which the rest of the band loved, so we’ve DRAGONFORCE-ized it“!

Video: Dragonforce – The making of “The Power Within” Part 1

Posted by SeanB on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 8:15 PM (PST)

Epic Metal powerhouse Dragonforce have just released part one in the series of “making of” videos for their upcoming album The Power Within.  You can see the video right here.

Dragonforce have also released a new song called “Fallen World” from the album that we have included with the making of video.

The Power Within is set for release April 17, 2012 via Roadrunner Records.  It will be the follow up to 2008’s Ultra Beatdown and their fifth studio release.

Guitarist Herman Li recently had this to say about the album:

“The last two years have been the most fun we ever had making an album. Through writing, jamming and touring together, we have built this incredible energy and it has been fully captured on the new album. This time around we’ve really brought our metal side to the surface and made some of the best music of our career. From the fastest song we’ve ever recorded to the slower songs, and some things you would never expect from us, this is by far the most diverse Dragonforce album yet. This is an exciting new era for Dragonforce with Marc joining the band, so we figured this was an ideal time to take full control of our own destiny and establish our own record label for Europe. It’s all hands on deck running it, but a great buzz!”
