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!’

    I must say that I… Cannot… Wait for this… To say the least, the live “Through The Fire and Flames” Says it all, with the “Cry Thunder” And “Holding On” Showing that you guys certainly need to make a live album, or remake some of the old songs with Marcs voice! I wish for Where Dragons Rule” in the event that you do… Please, do one! It all sounds amazing! It seems like just yesterday I fell to my knees as I opened the box containing “The Power Within”, yet here comes another!

    I would love to see 7 minute long songs return, and with Marc epic vocals, I think that would be a recipe for success, in my books anyway. I loved the long, guitar solos in my DragonForce songs, and that’s what I found missing in “The Power Within”.
