DragonForce turned heads when they released their debut Valley Of The Damned in 2003. Immediate virtuosos, the band got a lot of attention for the insane tempos at which they performed – I’m talking fast, like 220bpm, which perplexed many.
As a result, DragonForce quickly stood out amongst their power metal contemporaries. Come to think of it, they were the only power metal band to crossover, appealing to both Machine Head and Trivium fans as well those into Helloween or Iron Maiden. Reaching Into Infinity is their seventh studio album and it’s business as usual; There are no real surprises, just a solid DragonForce album from beginning to end.
Reaching Into Infinity is out now via Sony.
