So yea, I got the new Dragonforce album that came out today, called Ultra Beatdown. I highly recommend it so far based on what I have heard. I'm sure many of you have heard the epic song "Heroes of Our Time," the single released a month ago or so. I agree that this song sounded like typical Dragonforce, but so far, this is the ONLY song the album I have heard that sounds typical.

The vocals in this album are definately a new thing for Dragonforce. I can't really describe it, but he employs a lot of Symphony X/Progressive style vocals, and also 80's hair metal influence; instead of just the original epic singing style. As far as guitars go, yea some soloes sound typical, but are still great IMO. But also in one of the songs there was like a Middle-Eastern oriented solo and I really liked it.

I have only heard songs 1-3 so far, and only 2 and 3 one time, but so far I like the new direction Dragonforce is going. Anyone else have opinions?

We played the song "The Last Journey Home" on our radio show yesterday, and we pretty much cut the music by half because it was boring and very typical Dragonforce.

Well, its true dragonforce has a very representative style, but the new album has some parts where you can´t recognize it. I think the other albums had better solos, but ultrabeatdown´s " The fire Still Burns", "Heartbreak Armageddon", and obviously " Heroes of Our Time" are incredible songs that will last through eternity!

i dunno, i think ultra beatdown is pretty darn good! i like how they tried to incorporate all aspects of the instruments instead of just making everything about the guitars! i think the first 2 tracks, heroes of our time and the fire still burns, are probably my favs so far! biggrin.gif
