An amazing evolution,
This review is from: Ultra Beatdown [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
No one thought Dragonforce could top Inhuman Rampage (although when I spoke to the band they said that they thought Sonic Firestorm was better). However here they have created a sonic assault on the senses, a completely unexpected monster of an album. They havent slowed down one bit, but what they have done is instead of playing one song at the same spead, ala inuuman rampage, they combine lots of changes of tempo to great effect. Their solos are glorious and indulgent, you often wonder what the lyrics are there for and you find yourself wrapped up in herman and sam's muscicianship to the point or eargasm. They truly manage to get some amazing sounds out of their instruments. This pckage is much better than the standard cd becuase you get the 2 bonus tracks (the dvd is poor). scars of yesterday is one of the best songs dragonforce have done, period, you need to own it.
Overall they have evoled amazingly well from inhuman rampage to this, their whole sound is new and exciting whilst still being distinctly theirs. You can put any dragonforce record on and within 5 seconds you will know who it is. That is talent.
