UK based metal heroes DRAGONFORCE have announced that their long search for a new vocalist is finally over. After entries from thousands of hopefuls across the globe, the band welcomes 23 year old Marc Hudson to the band to fill the boots left by ZP Theart, who parted ways with the band in March of last year.

“I’m really excited about being a part of the DragonForce family.” Says Marc. “It’s always been my dream to dedicate my life to making music. I’m going to bring all the power and emotion I can to the songs, and help make the killer new record the fans have been waiting for!”

Born in Oxford England, Marc was picked from the thousands of applications via a number of impressive video auditions and live performances, which left the rest of the band in no doubt that they’d found their man. Since the age of 16, Marc has been building his vocal skills gigging with bands in the UK underground scene, developing a powerful style with influences which include Bruce Dickinson, Michael Kiske and Sebastian Bach. Says founding member and guitarist Herman Li:

“After almost a year of searching around the globe, it’s great to be able to finally tell our fans the good news. Marc’s expressive and melodic vocals are sounding phenomenal on the new songs, adding another dimension to the DragonForce sound that I am sure all the fans will love.”

The band has been working on a new album since early 2010, recording in various studios in California, London and the South of France. The follow up to 2008’s hugely successful “Ultra Beatdown” album will be highly anticipated, with top 10 and top 20 chart positions all over the world and a Grammy Nomination in the United States setting the precedent. With Marc brought into the fold, the band is enjoying an injection of enthusiasm and hunger that sees DRAGONFORCE prepared to return more focused and determined than ever before.

“Everyone in the band is extremely excited about how the new material is shaping up.” continues Herman. “We haven’t felt this kind of energy in the band for a long time. We can’t wait to unleash the next DragonForce album later this year.”

The new album is expected to hit the shelves in September, with a full world tour to follow.

    Marc was the first person to really impress me with his audition videos, though there were also several others that impressed me afterwards as well, so I’m stoked to see what Marc adds to DragonForce! :D

    Congratulations to you Marc and congrats also to the band! May The Force Be With All Of You! :D

    Great news!!!
    Wish you all the luck in the world Marc!!!!
    PS: Whatever happened to Vadim’s hair?

  • Comment by Kevin — March 2, 2011 @ 20:59

    New singer’s vocals doesn’t really compared to ZP’s high vocal range but its good they found someone. Different vocals could bring in different kinds of fans that weren’t a fan of the ZP’s vocals.
    ZP is still better.

  • Comment by Sarah — March 2, 2011 @ 21:18

    He’s perfect!!

  • Comment by PowerMetalSquirrelGirl — March 2, 2011 @ 21:31

    It’s about time!! :) Marc has a killer voice. :) I still miss ZP though. :( COME TO SAINT LOUIS PLEASE!!
    Can’t wait for studio album number 5!!

  • Comment by Brandon — March 2, 2011 @ 22:47

    Good choice boys, this guy will be a great addition to the band and I love his use of multi-tracking, still not powerful enough to make multitracking unnoticeable like Mr. Theart, but still I love this guy and really can’t wait to here Studio Album 5, This guy was the right choice!

  • Comment by Ivan — March 2, 2011 @ 22:51

    Really guys I wish you all the best with this new guy,I must admitt i was afraid you’r going to pick someone worse but this guy is OSOM,keep up the good work and make us forget the time when nightwish changed their singer and became crappy,DRAGONFORCE CANT DISSAPOINT US !!!! :DDD

  • Comment by Orvokki — March 3, 2011 @ 14:34

    Welcome to the band Marc. Just to point: There is no idea to compare the new singer and the former singer, it is just stupid. Every singer has their own voice etc. Marc will completely fit to Dragonforce and HELL YEAH, he is damn good! I can say that all the fans of dragonforce will love you. Keep rocking dragonforce!

  • Comment by Kev — March 3, 2011 @ 15:09

    Hell yeah Marc, you sound really awesome and I’m sure that you will take this band to new heights! Good luck man :)

    I would have loved to see the audition videos he made for Last journey home and Through the fire and flames.They must have been pretty amazing i guess,but i havn’t seen them on the net so i guess he or Dragonforce won’t put them out….

  • Comment by mayle Maia heinen — March 4, 2011 @ 13:29

    The New Singer is fucking great!:) I can’t wait to hear the new album! But could someone tell me what song is used in the demo of Marc Hudson? I really wanna have that songs! Is that from the new Dragonforce album or from another band or something?

  • Comment by Paul — March 5, 2011 @ 13:45

    Congrats Marc! cant wait to see you guys rip it up on stage again!!! I loved ZP but look at this way all the Dragon songs get a little different twist with the NEW guy and ZP will eventually run out of food and need another job and hey that could make two killer bands. Good Luck to you all. “Fucking hell Dudes!” (ZP) and vadim get on that xbox after the studio!!! tags Tusk112. or anyone that likes dragonforce lets play!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment by Dragshep — March 8, 2011 @ 03:40

    Man, he’s an awesome new singer, and his voice sounds great for the new album. By the way, those new lyrics and backing track are sick. From what I can tell, this is going to be the best album yet, even better than VOTD and Ultra Beatdown. ‘Force Forever.

  • Comment by Acen — March 9, 2011 @ 09:58

    i like him…
    -good voice-..

  • Comment by Robin — March 9, 2011 @ 10:20

    DragonForce without ZP Theart is not DragonForce, and it never will be. The new picture of the band looks to me like a random fan posing in front of what’s left of DragonForce.
    Marc is a good singer, but his voice is not half as powerful as Zippys.
    However, I hope Marcs voice isn’t too weak for the live shows, and I wish him the best of luck.

  • Comment by Robin — March 9, 2011 @ 14:48

    I really like his voice. This one’s a bit more controlled, instead of ZP hitting it way too high sometimes.

  • Comment by magicodark — March 9, 2011 @ 16:35

    is good, but is a copy from the past vocalist zp….. jajaja dragonforce wants to repeat the formula from the past albums jajajajaja
    i think than is better singer brian phyl miller…… meaby i was choice bryan….. jajaja good luck dragonforce i am a fan from mexico

  • Comment by Lewis — March 9, 2011 @ 17:20

    Good luck Marc your very good hope to see you sing something like Disciples of Babylon. You are better than most of the Power Metal singers out there BUT (don’t take this the wrong way) you will never be as good as ZP. Still good luck to you all the way.

  • Comment by MIKEY METAL!!!! — March 9, 2011 @ 17:59

    congrats to Marc!!!!! the similarities between yours and ZP’s vocals are unreal PERFECT CHOICE!!!

    He is perfect!!!, I tell a lot of people to watch this video and they say that they are going to start listening to DragonForce =D
    I saw a lot the other people comments about ZP is better than Marc…
    For me he isn’t, I prefer Marc’s voice, for me he is better than ZP in all the ways! I like how he say “So Far Away”!….
    Marc control his voice, thing that ZP didnt in a lot of times.
    I love both, but how I say before Marc > ZP thanks

    Of course Z.P. is Z.P. but unfortunatly he left the band so….what can i do?!

    I liked Marc Scream but i din’t like his voice so much..i’m very anxious and hopeful for the DF new album, I hope i like it…but i probably will! =)
    It’s just a question of time till i habituate with him! =)

  • Comment by Ryan — March 16, 2011 @ 14:05

    Dragonforce is my favorite band. I’m thrilled to hear that they found a new singer. Dragonforce is why I started playing guitars and bass. I wasn’t happy when Zp left. Mark is really good. Best of luck.

    It’s about time guys! :P

    Well, I’ll admit Hudson is pretty talented, and I’m sure he’ll be an awesome addition to the family. But to be honest, I was actually hoping Eli Prinsen would get the spot. Not that I have anything against Hudson, it’s just that Prinsen sounds like he has more power within’ his vocals. Though as I stated before, Hudson has some good talent. It’d be a shame to see that go to waste, and for that I’m glad you chose him.

    Here’s to the future guys, keep rocking everyone’s socks off! :D

    Marc, welcome to the ‘Force. I wish you the best of luck and the highest level of success. I am confident that you can make this band your own and really instill your vocal talents into the music. Coming from someone who was a big fan of ZP, I’m really curious to hear what kind of passion and emotion you’ll bring to the table. I am sure you’re going to do a great job being the voice of a group as legendary as this. The DragonForce journey is far from over. Don’t lose that fire!

  • Comment by R1CK1 — April 5, 2011 @ 22:50

    Fitting replacement for ZP, my warmest congratulation to Marc. What a voice, I have to admit I thought I had kind of the same credentials until I heard that cry, then I was like “Crap, I can’t compete with that!”

    But seriously, awesome stuff guys. Rock on!

  • Comment by Nachtauge — April 8, 2011 @ 20:00

    Marc has a nice voice and I wish him the best, but… ZPs voice was and IS awesome, no, it’s mind blowing!
    But I wait for the next album and concert and then let’s see what’s coming up.

  • Comment by Lucas — April 25, 2011 @ 00:31

    what is the name of this music??????

  • Comment by Hozlos — April 25, 2011 @ 20:25

    Hmm he has potential, dunno if he will be as good a replacement as sho was for galneryus when yama B left but we shall see. Ill admit that last part of singing was pro. I still kinda like ZP’s voice a bit more but we shall see how epic the lyrics are in the next album.

    If he can make a guy like me who didint shed a tear at the death of his sister (she was the kind of girl who couldint even drop an F bomb when she was royaly pissed) but shed one when he first heard lost souls in endless time then he will win in my books.

  • Comment by Erin — July 20, 2011 @ 21:09

    Well, it’s official– I am doing the happy dance. I was so bummed when you lost your singer because it sucks trying to replace a band member. So glad you found someone with vox that can wail! The new album will be rockin’, no doubt.

  • Comment by João Victor — July 20, 2011 @ 21:19
