From the comments on this, I was expecting a blazing fast song with generic guitar solos and the vocalist singing at full speed. However, this song actually sounded rather unique for DragonForce. It was mid-tempo, the guitars actually blended well with the rest of the music and the new singer brings a little bit of a different sound to the table. Even had some synths thrown in. Can''t expect much more from DragonForce, I enjoyed the track! Its something fresh from a band which desperately needed it.

I listened to 46 seconds. Pretty much the same thing as ever, just slower.
Prettier than BloodTears.

Hopefully, they finally realize speed is not the only way to produce attractive music.

I like it. Nice and catchy with a hook, powerful, distinctive, singer sounds good. Slow for Dragonforce is a smart move, you can't have an entire career in one tempo. It's going to be a hit with their fans because it's a bit of a change.

I was hoping for another song like The Last Journey Home on this album, the medium tempo but also innovation and a non-typical structure. Like Troy up there said, it's pretty typical of Dragonforce, just at a different tempo. And I suppose they create a new and unique-sounding song but some people would like to see more innovation from them than just doing it a bit slower. I'll have to listen to the album. Lost Forgotten World is already basically what they have always done.

I'm so ambivalent about this band it's ridiculous!

edit: haha, I knew Flower Metal would say that. It is pretty fucking glorious!

The same all over again, only this time is a bit slower. Too repetitive.

I quite liked it unlike most people here

An improvement for me, but its still embedded a bit too much in the ''same old euro-power metal'' camp for me. Still, may actually give the album a perusal when it comes out now after hearing this as opposed to just chuckling heartily when I realise its been released and avoiding it.

Not mindblowing, but better than I was expecting... I'll certainly give the album a listen.

I'm sure I've heard this before. Can't quite work out where. The whole song is really familiar. It will come to me eventually.

Nice one. Didnt expect this kind of tempo. The new singer is a nice addition. One of my next buy

It was a bit generic. I like the new singer though. Still, it wasn't amazingly fast so kudos for that, but this track sort of suggests that their song writing is at their best when they're going at it 10 to the dozen.

Huh. actually pretty decent. certainly more memorable than most DragonForce songs. i suppose i might give the album a try once it come out. maybe.
