Dragonforce will be back on April 17. That's when the modern-day guitar heroes will release The Power Within, a 10-track monster that marks the London-based band's fifth studio album and its first with new singer Marc Hudson behind the microphone. It will be released on April 17 by Roadrunner Records. Oh yeah, we're psyched.
DragonForce guitarist Herman Li said, "The last two years have been the most fun we ever had making an album. Through writing, jamming and touring together, we have built this incredible energy and it has been fully captured on the new album."
Li also claims the album boasts the fastest song the band has ever recorded. Now that we gotta hear. If you like the shred and the guitar wankery, you will love the 'Force. Li continued, "This time around we’ve really brought our metal side to the surface and made some of the best music of our career. From the fastest song we’ve ever recorded to the slower songs, and some things you would never expect from us, this is by far the most diverse DragonForce album yet."
The full track listing is as follows:
1. Holding On
2. Fallen World
3. Cry Thunder
4. Give Me the Night
5. Wings of Liberty
7. Heart of the Storm
8. Die By the Sword
9. Last Man Stands
10. Seasons (Acoustic Version)
There will also be a digital special edition featuring the bonus tracks "Cry Thunder (Live Rehearsal)," "Heart of the Storm (Alternative Chorus Version)" and "Avant La Tempête (Instrumental)."
Look for exciting US tour announcements coming soon.
Shred! Rip! Riffs! Fun!
Are you going to feel The Power Within this April?
