5.0 out of 5 stars Truly awesome - 6 stars
The music on this cd is absolutely brilliant. From the opening bars I was instantly hooked and remained so to the final closing note.
I have been listening to rock music for over 40 years, (yes, I'm old), and Dragonforce are the best band I've heard in the last 20 years.
Taking into consideration the fact that the general level of rock musicianship...

3.0 out of 5 stars Same old same old.........
Don't get me wrong, this is a catchy album, but I don't think it will have lasting appeal.
It is far too cheesy to be taken seriously, and the band surely can't do as many full speed tracks the next time as it becomes pretty wearing and it all sounds the same with the exception of track four.
Yes, the band are good fun and excellent live, but more substance is...

5.0 out of 5 stars UK fights back,
What a breath of fresh air to hear some of the best Power Metal around - and it's from a UK band! Big guitars with some excellent twin soloing, chunky drums all overlain by excellent keyboards. I'm kicking myself that I missed their last UK tour but will be there next time. A big "Recommended" for Sonic Firestorm!
5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Firestorm Dragonforce,
Love this CD especially track 4. It has to be played very loud so that you can sing along at the top of your voice. Jusst wonderful stuff.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fury of the storm was worth it.,
Only bought for 1 song "Fury of the storm" It was worth it just for that. In the car, stereo wound up and not a care in the world.
5.0 out of 5 stars great songs on a great cd,
the songs on this cd always help me relax if I'm feeling angry. I would recommend it to any fan who likes the same genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended,
Overall, a very good album. While it does not contain any instantlystand-out tracks like a couple of the tracks from the first album (Valleyof the Damned), it is nevertheless a 'grower' - the more I listen to itthe better it definitely gets. I do like the more extensive of keyboardson this album as well as the more obvious hints of 'prog' elements (e.g.Warrior of the Waste Land, Above the Winter Moonlight), which at timessort of made me think of DF as a the speed metal version of DreamTheater!
I can understand the comment about the lack of variety, which is trueenough, but this comment is equally applicable to their first album or,arguably, to the majority of genre-based albums. Also, I personally do notcare much for the gibberish lyrics (probably more a reflection of the factwhen it comes to songs lyrics I am so used to the impossibly highstandards set by Neil Peart of Rush).
In the end, despite some reservations, I still enjoy this album enormouslyand am looking forward to check them out live.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome,
Awesome, simply put

But i also recomend the first album valley of the damned as alot of the songs on there are of an awesome standard also!
