Can't say I listen to either of them very much, but from what I've heard, I like Firewind better smile.gif

But still I want answers, what's the point, what does all this mean?

I don't know really. I bash Herman Li and Dragonforce all the time for their total crap live performances, but no band gets me so hyped up and uplifted as Dragonforce, so I think they are great musicians, but just decent guitarists. I think Firewind has better guitarists though.

personally i have to go with him I dont bash them or anything but after Dragonforce being in guitar hero 3 and then having people that here the song once and know nothing about the band or anything and then there their favorite band just put me off but I love Firewind I actually just learned the opening to Mercenary Man(slowly because I'm a beginner) but I was woundering that after learning it. Alot of people I know like Dragonforce but I really like Firewind and I think the whole world should know about them(even though a dragonforce effect might happen)

I don't know why everybody hates on DragonForce so much. They were probably all stoned out of their minds during the live performances. They sound just fine in the video below.

see the thing is firewind is probobly not getting "stoned out of there mind though" im not saying i hate Dragonforce either there really good better than alot of people you hear on the radio(which I havent heard either band on the radio) and in this lesson there not even live so this was probobly rehersed and they probobly recorded a couple of times

That's like choosing between being shot to death and stabbed to death biggrin.gif Either way it's a bad outcome smile.gif

But if I have to say one or the other I guess Firewind is slightly better.

biggrin.gif more like being shot to death vs winning a free pizza for life contest.. .. lets compare

Dragonforce has Herman Li on Lead
Firewind has Gus G..
Gus G can do everything Herman Li can.. cleaner.. Faster and all around better.. also his stuff sounds a hell of alot better
My Vote goes for Gus G

Dragon Force has Sam
Firewind again.. has Gus G on rythm.. so.. Gus G wins again

since we are guitarists and don't care about other instruments i will say this.. dragonforces keys are more extreme but imo less musical.. Dragonforce's singer sucks compared to Firewinds epic Vocals.. and the drumming in Firewind is more complex then the speedy double kick in dragonforce ( see song warrior to understand ).

Firewind is just all around a better band.. i would choose Allegience over Inhuman Rampage anyday

How can you say Gus G. is better than Herman Li? He's nowhere close to being Asian tongue.gif . To be honest I think Gus G. just plays so much slower, that's why you think his sound is cleaner. However, I haven't really listened to much Firewind so maybe I'm missing the mega shred stuff.

I can hardly comment on who I like better because I've only heard DragonForce's stuff. Having said that, I've youtubed some Firewind songs and the solos just don't blow me away like Herman's do. Everything else sounds fine and cool and what not, but I listen to DragonForce when I need some shred.

First off, Herman Li isnt playing as fast as you think he is, Its fast, But not REALLY that fast. Secondly, Speed isnt everything, a slower cleaner solo played well, is better than a fast one played bad. Thirdly, He can play fast, quite fast. Check out some of his other previous projects like Dream Evil, and Mystic Prophecy smile.gif

Most here know Herman Li, but some might not know Gus... So......

Thats really funny because I was just thinking about that! It is better to play slower than cleaner than faster and sloppy.
I'm not putting Herman Li down at all I'm just saying that I think Gus G's stuff sounds better wink.gif
