If you were never a fan of Dragonforce, The Power Within probably won't change your mind, it's still full of lighting fast guitar solos, cheesy lyrics and amazing vocals but the addition of Marc Hudson's voice definitely adds a new shade to the album.

Dragonforce were clearly were looking for someone to not just fill ZP's shoes, but also to bring something new to the table, which Marc does fantastically. Some of the best tracks include, Cry Thunder, Fallen World, Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Storm.

Why 4 out of 5 stars? The album definitely feels like it's treading old ground, Dragonforce are still reusing lyrics lyrics from previous albums and the overall composition of a few tracks feels extremely familiar. Personally I wanted to hear more tracks like Cry Thunder, the classic power metal sound they were going for mixed with the fantastic vocals and guitar playing of Herman and Sam worked really well. That said the rest of the album is still top notch, the blazingly fast guitar solos, arcade sound interludes and epic song compositions are tighter than ever, making it some of the bands best work to date.

I'd definitely recommend seeing Dragonforce at one of their live shows, hearing the classics with Marc's own style at the 100 clubs was an amazing experience.

Ive been a huge DragonForce fan for years but I was quite apprehensive to see what Marc Hudson (The new singer) would bring to the table. I neednt have worried, this album is by far there best work. Marc is defiitely the superior vocalist and the variety within the album is a nice change. Songs like Cry Thunder and Seasons move away from the crazy speed metalish routes of the band and add a new dimension through slower but more epic sounding songs. They match this by bringing back some good old fashioned DragonForce style speed with songs like Fallen World. I enjoyed every second of this album and I thoruoghly recommend it to everyone who likes the lighter side of the metal scene :-)

I've always had a bit of a thing for Dragonforce. They were actually the first power metal band i really got into, and there's still a bit of a sweet spot for Valley of the Dammned and Sonic Firestorm in me. Their technical wizardry, blitzkreig speeds and unabashed champoinship of cheesy flower-power lyrics along with their wonderful melodies, infectious energy and positive vibe provided a nice respite from the heavier stuff I usually listen to. However, when Inhuman Rampage (basically a faster rehash of Sonic Firestorm) came around the corner, I was craving something with a bit more substance and had already moved onto Sontata Arctica, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody, Heavenly, Dark Moor, Human Fortress and Secret Sphere among others. I couldn't stand Ultra Beatdown - to me it was just a pile of choatic, uncoordianted technicality for technicalities sake mush. But then after hearing Cry Thunder on the ol' Tube, I decided to give The Power Within a try... and I'm glad i did.

The Power Within is instantly recognizable as DragonForce, even with a new singer, and isn't really doing anything wildly revolutionairy in terms of the bands sound. There's no forays into prog rock, no avante grade black metal or anything like that. It's as ot always has been - cheesy power metal with poppy choruses and air-guitar inducing solos. However, Power Within does sees the band moving away from the all out technical, self-indulgent and in my view souless sounds of Ultra Beatdown back to a much more memorable and melodically focused style ala Sonic Firestorm and Valley of the Damned. Don't get me wrong, the band still rip it up with reckless abandon, with some ridiculously fast rumming, face-melting solos and the kind of instrumental skill that gives mere mortals nosebleeds.

I'm a big fan and followed them for many years. First off, you can tell that they are changing the way they structure their songs by the fact only one song is 7 minutes long. You can also tell the structure has changed by listening to said 7 minute song as it isn't like their past long songs, its more broken down and works really well. The New singer is amazing and can hit the high notes well! Granted at one point the high note came out of no where but was still impressive none the less! His voice carries all the songs well and will be looking forward to new songs over the years from him!

The old 'all Dragonforce songs sound the same' philosophy to me only half exists in this album. While they retain what made them great to listen too, its easy to see they are trying new things. 'Cry Thunder' is the best example of this! The melody to me seems to have a slight Irish kick to it and simply sounds brilliant (music video of said song here(...) )

I have a feeling that a reason some of their songs in this particular album sound similar to previous years is simply to reassure fans that the new singer hasn't tampered with what made them famous. Personal opinion, but I seem to prefer Marc over ZP, despite still liking ZP.

One last note, the acoustic version at the end actually shocked me as I have never heard them play anything like that before, it was a brilliant shortened version of the song Seasons (shortened due to the fact breaking into solo in acoustic probably doesn't sound the same!).
