Exclusive: Watch DragonForce Live Footage

DragonForce will hit North American soil this weekend for a brand new tour for the new album The Power Within, debuting new singer Marc Hudson in markets and cities across the U.S. and Canada.
In honor of the trek, ARTISTdirect.com is pleased to partner with the band to share this live footage, which should ramp fans up to see the band in the flesh through May.
The live footage was recorded in Dec. 2011 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The sound was captured by the band’s video camera positioned at the lighting desk, so it’s up close and personal. Enjoy!
Straight up, no one shreds like these guys. They're one of the most technically proficient, but fun bands ever…
The band says it will see you on tour. So get out and take in some metal shred live and in person.
Watch the exclusive below!
You can buy the CD of The Power Within from the ARTISTdirect store, or get the digital version at iTunes.
