DRAGONFORCE - The Power Within

I know the name itself evokes laughter with many...I admit I laughed at the over the topness of it all.

 

But wait a fuckin' second, a new singer, could things have changed. Is Dragonfarce...really a 'force' now?

 

They haven't pulled a 180, but I can stomach it alot better than before.

 

Well the speed is still there, although nowhere near as stupid and go nowhere like before. The vocals, keys and the guitar playing are much sharper and smoother. Maybe it's the production or the fact they actually slowed it down enough not simply be making noise.

 

MY GOD!!! I'm actually liking some of the new Dragonforce.

It's not like you can turn the speed off completely

I think they're a good band. The trouble was the last singer was shite (and he was a dick who took himself too seriously). They've got some talent and can write good tunes. I will check the new one out...

Good band in general for me, good songs with some juicy hooks and great musicianship, although I must admit that after about 45 minutes of the breakneck guitar soloing, I usually have to swap to something else to calm me own a bit. Just got the new album this morning, so lookng forward to crashing my van to it later :crazy:

I've tried, but this band does nothin' for me. The new singer makes'em a little more palatable, but they're still annoying...

I caved in and picked this up at Wal-Mart. Despite the drums being way too fast for no reason the songs are decent to very good. If they could slow it down a bit more, like they do with the lead off single 'Cry Thunder' they could be a really good band. This will either grow on me or I'll end up pitching it before my head explodes....it could go either way.

I love their complete lack of irony! i find that refreshing these days!

 

They play super-fast and seeing them live is pure entertainment!

And let's here it for their drummer! How the hell does he maintain that speed?

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
