yeah, if you catch DF RIGHT after a studio release, they're going to play sloppy because they're still learning the song. I've seen DF twice and the second time they nailed each song note for note (it was in february of last year on the No Fear tour or something). The first time I saw them was on the off day from Ozzfest 2 years ago. They flubbed it a little, but not near as bad as the videos. I'm sure lots of skilled guitarists have made mistakes on video before. Petrucci is clearly better than Sam or Herman. Petrucci is probably one of the best rock guitarists alive. That said DF isn't bad. Their stage presence IMHO is better than DT's. They're really high energy and lots of fun.


Yeah, Petrucci has absolutely no stage presence, he pretty much just stands there. Portney is good, but He's stuck on drums the entire time. Dream Theater is of course better technically than Dragonforce though.

Just kidding. Definately though, if I wasn't so astounded in awe and addicted to Dream Theater I would definately find Dragonforce much funner due to the atmosphere. Dream Theater shows are pretty much 100% music, which is how they want it to be, and how it should be, nothing wrong with that. However I can definately see why one would want to go see DF, having never heard of them, just because it is always fun to go to a rock concert.

When Petrucci starts doing tornado jumps off cabs/drum riser/ monitors or when they get trampolines on the side of the stage and haul up girls from the crowd then we'll talk. The energy DF puts into their concert is truly unrivaled by any band I've seen. I've not seen DT live yet, I'm going in May, but I have watched LOTS of DT live performances.

Can't believe you didn't mention Myung lol. Petrucci and Portnoy both at least look at the crowd and smile and walk around a good bit and I don't think Myung has ever lifted his eyes from the bass. Rudess rules.

On another note, Could you imagine being the singer for DT. It'd be really bad at live shows whenever the rest of the band was just jamming, which they do ALOT. He actually leaves the stage, because they go on for so long. Which is awesome of course.

Reminds me of the Motley Crue concert I saw lol. Lets just say they almost got arrested and stopped halfway through due to unbelievably horrible conduct. After that I never wanted to go to another one like, Def Leppard and Van Halen were way better.

Dragonforce sound good in studio because they record everything at 50% tempo and then double the tempo to give the finished album. That's also why they get drunk live to try and cover up the fact they are very sketchy playing the stuff. They should get credit for writing catchy songs and melodies but they shouldn't for their guitar PLAYING skills.
