Today I’m thankful for DragonForce.
I’m a bit of a metal head. I love crystalline guitar solos and machine gun drums. I prefer clean vocals but can appreciate growling. It’s usually when I’m pissed (angry, not drunk) or in the middle of a tough workout.
With that, I most enjoy bands that don’t take themselves too seriously. They seem to perform out of sheer enjoyment. DragonForce is technically accomplished. They also are just as likely to include chiptune riffs and sing about ridiculously wizard-y things as they are to write lyrics about ripping off faces. All song rights belong to the artist.
