DragonForce are currently on the Maximum Overload World Tour, which commenced in September 2014 and is due to conclude in 2016. Throughout their six studio album and multiple world tour history DF have steadfastly refused to shoot a DVD, until now.

Guitarist Herman Li explains,
“We always held the opinion that if we ever did a DVD we wanted to do it properly. Now, having released six studio albums we thought we had a great cross section of material to pick from and we knew the facilities at Loud Park made it a great place to film a show. Everything just came together and we’re very pleased with the results and hope the fans will be also”.

A snapshot of the DVD can be seen by checking out the just released second music video from ‘Maximum Overload’, ‘Three Hammers’ which includes shot from the same show!

The release will be a double disc package of the DVD and accompanying Live Audio CD of the show and will also be available in Blu-ray.
