Overview

The band propelled to the top of the pop-prog-power-metal heap thanks to their inclusion in the Guitar Hero videogame are back, and Dragonforce doesn't mess with one hyperspeed quadruple-tweaked and artificially harmonicized note on Ultra Beatdown. The single "Heroes of Our Time" is a "Through the Fire and Flames" redux, with singer Z.P. Theart emoting sword-and-sorcery plotlines over the double-Yngwie guitar attack of Herman Li and Sam Totman, whilst the bursts of super-bonus-round electronics detonate all around them. Don't expect Ultra Beatdown to settle any of the big questions (Who is God? Why is there Evil? Are they really playing this fast or is it all Pro-Tools?), just sit back and enjoy the breeze coming off your woofers.

Every Single Made me go wild and nearly gave my mom a heart attack!! Who can listen to this and not like power metal. Their music gets better every album although Through the Fire And Flames remains my favorite.

It's rare that something goes so far beyond parody, so past ridiculous, and so delightfully and cosmically comical, but remains as passionate, pure, and true as this band does. Dragonforce wears their influences on their sleeve, make no mistake. It's derivative, hokey, and will never be considered subtle or original, and thank God for that! This is the most empowering, geeked-out explosion of face-melting guitar, runway elephant drumming, and hurculean vocals you will ever hear. It's full-tilt wizzard rock to the unbelievable extreme and is beyond hipster disses and critical put-downs. Dragonforce is a force of nature. The sonic landscape they create is like something out of your wildest imagination. That tired old cliche about seeing colors? Believe it man. If this album doesn't move you to put on your viking helmet, grab your broad sword, and hop onto your wooden ship and head straight into that celestial Valhalla, check your pulse. This is as good as power metal gets and will get. Buy this record now.
