DragonForce - To Release Live Album

Official Press Release

Dragonforce, the stellar musicians whose latest Ultra Beatdown album charted strongly all over the world, have announced the release of their first live album; titled Twilight Dementia and produced by longstanding DF collaborator Karl Groom along with band guitarists Herman Li & Sam Totman, this double live set is now confirmed for a September 13th 2010 release on Spinefarm Records and Roadrunner Records (US, Canada).

Featuring 13 tracks, including such pivotal numbers as "Fury Of The Storm", "Operation Ground And Pound", "My Spirit Will Go On", "Valley Of The Damned", "Heroes Of Our Time" & "Through The Fire And Flames", this exercise in soaring vocals & advanced guitar pyrotechnics was recorded across 19 UK shows, with the very best takes lovingly compiled and mixed by Groom, Totman & Li.

Says Herman: "For years, fans have been asking us to record a live album, but honestly, we never really had the time due to our worldwide touring commitments and studio album recording. However, due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans on the "Ultra Beatdown World Tour", we decided to finally put some real thought into it. The idea was to record every single show from the last leg of the tour, so we could pick the best take of each song without needing to do any overdubs in the studio; keeping the whole thing "live" like all the classic live metal albums. These recordings really capture the raw sonic energy of a Dragonforce show in fine detail. It is so real that you can hear the noise of the crowd and experience the show as it was that night - you can even hear the guitar pedals being stepped on!"

if you don't count the 1,200 metal records, tapes, and cds he owns...

Get your facts right. I have 1600+ listed here. But in reality it is over 3500

Now all the children can hear how poor they are live. Unless they alter the sound in production. No overdubs, my arse.

Soo true!
DragonForce fans admire their studio works, understandable. But trying to deny that they're lame live is rather funny...

you guys made me laugh
to through my opinion in they do suck utter balls live in comparison to all the other bands ive seen live... well they were better then suicide silence >.<

They opened for megadeth and slayer last year, it was awful, we had to leave till they were done there set it sounded so bad.
