I used to like them when they debuted and they even started a huge following at my old high school from metalheads and non-metalheads alike(many of these people in the party scene). Though when I realized they were just a big gimmick I stopped enjoying them -- my friend saw them live and said they were to drunk to play all the crazy guitar parts and sounded terrible, and used many purposely cheesy props.
They arent truly passionate about the music which kind of lost the magic for me. Rhapsody, Pathfinder, Dragonland etc now are my substitions.
While these guys dont always take themselves serious they are still passionate about the music behind the facade, where Dragonforce isnt serious and isnt passionate, a Gimmick.(same problem with Alestorm)
i couldnt agree more. i had a friend who was huge into them and went to go see them live and he said they were terrible, he said they messed up all the solos and the singer was too busy drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and forgot to come in on certain parts of the song. he said he would never listen to them again.
