DragonForce is currently in the studio with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Amon Amarth) working on a brand new album coming out in 2014!
DragonForce guitarist Herman Li performed with guitar legend Steve Vai as special guest in Bristol (03/09/13) and Bournemouth UK (04/09/13), part of Vai‘s ‘The Story of Light World Tour’. Herman Li first performed with Steve Vai in January 2007 in Los Angeles, California. Herman comments ‘It was an honour for me, to be able to share the stage with one of the greatest guitarist of all time. Steve Vai has been an incredible inspiration to my playing for many years, I would like thank Steve once again for inviting me up, it was a total blast!’

BAND TO HIT STUDIO IN MAY
UK Metal heroes DRAGONFORCE have completed writing the follow up to last year’s “The Power Within” album, which was their first with vocalist Marc Hudson. Since his live debut with the band in July of 2011, Marc has gone on to front over 100 shows with the band in 32 countries across the globe, including arenas with Iron Maiden as well as a mammoth headlining world tour to support the album.
With a new found wealth of experience for the new singer and two years of playing together, the DRAGONFORCE machine will be at it’s most powerful when they enter Fascination Studios in Sweden in May with Jens Bogren to start laying down tracks. Known for his work with the likes of Opeth, The Devin Townsend Project, Amon Amarth, Katatonia, Soilwork and Symphony X to name a few, a killer-sounding album will be the inevitable result. Shredmaster Herman Li says:
‘Right now, everyone in the band is itching to get into the studio to record probably the most epic DragonForce music ever written. With so many ideas flying around and songs already written, we decided to team up with producer Jens Bogren to help us take the DF sound to the next level and beyond!’
DragonForce’s appearance at the Metal Hammer Paradise will be the band’s last performance for 2013 and will take place at Weissenhaeuser Strand near Luebeck, Germany between November 15th-16th 2013.
