Awesome feel good metal, by the one and only Dragonforce.,
This review is from: Ultra Beatdown [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
This is an awesome new feel good metal album by Dragonforce. I downloaded the album a couple of months ago and since then i've been listening to it none stop ever since and even still it never fails to amaze me. Everything has improved from Inhuman Rampage, it's still the same style fast paced guitar solos, fast drumming, ZPs awesome vocals and everything else. This is what a Dragonforce fan would expect from them just another ultra kick ass album.
It's hard to pick a favourite song because they all rock but if I had to pick it would be "Reasons To Live" man what a song what an intro it has my favourite intro to a song ever so cool great song too mosh too. The lyrics in the song are great aswell very feel good e.g "We All Face Our Fears In The World, We All Hold Our Place In The Universe", I also really like the bridge section in this song as Herman and Sam play some very cool solos (which arn't just super fast) and Vadim plays a keyboard solo which is very cool. Other songs to Mention are "The Warrior Inside" is another one of my favourites it's very different to other Dragonforce songs some parts are just amazing and quite catchy too.
Now the bonus tracks which is the reason why I bought this version. The bonus tracks are quite strange but at the same time they are brilliant "Strike Of The Ninja" which is only 3 minutes 18 seconds long Dragonforces shortes. "Scars Of Yesterday" is an awesome song they use ALOT of nintendo video games effects and works really well deffinetly a strange one but still awesome. I have this album (downloaded version) for 2 months and I still can't stop listening to it and the reason why I say feel good metal is that every time I listen to this it always puts me in a happy mood and makes you feel like you're on top off the world sounds strange but it's true. The second disc on this album is quite good, The Making Of The Album is funny and interesting to watch (ever hear of someone recording demos in someones kitchen) and The Making Of E - Gen Guitars and that interesting.
Overall This album is an Ultra kick ass Metal album for people who find todays music too depressing, check this album out if you hated Inhuman Rampage because this kick Inhuman Rampages arse. Now i'm well excited to see 'em in October. I'm glad Dragonforce didnt sell out they stick too what they do best and damn they are good at it. Dragonforce Rock!!!!!!!!!!

Reviewing an album you downloaded, saying Dragonforce have not sold out despite signing with a label who are known for pushing bands to release the exact same material all the time (perfect for Dragonforce) and being content with an album which sounds exactly like everything else they have released with no variation. I feel sorry for fans of this band. Go beyond Kerrang and find some "TRUE METAL" like your name suggests

^Lol, yea i really don't know why people love this band. I honestly am one of the most open-minded people out there with everything but this band is one of the worst of all time. Fast guitar work does not a great album make and why do all of their songs sound the same? Lack of creativity i guess. If people want power metal there are numerous examples of superior stuff out there, just try Blind Guardian instead.
