I thought it was kinda neat. Though, I think I would tire of it quickly.

There really are people that like Dragonforce? I thought they were just an urban legend.

When ever I listen to Dragonforce it just sounds like one big wank-fest to me. I mean there is no denying that they're very talented and I give them respect for that, but it just seems like that the band exists for the sole purpose of showing off what each band member can do (most of all Herman Li.)

Dragonforce is ok... DT and Opeth are much better.

You have poor taste then. :P Dragonforce had skill, yes, but their songs lack creativity and it all feels like one big guitar wankfest. If you think that a band that beats the One-trick pony to death is the best, then you really need to listen to more music and bands that had variety in their songs.

I guess when you practice playing guitar solos for five hours a day every day of your life, you don't have any time to learn how to write a song that's fun to listen to.

I also enjoy overly long crazy guitar solos, as long as they're melodic and not just pure technical wanking (i.e. Yngwie.) I can listen to the solo part of Dragonforce songs, but otherwise it's too silly for me.

As a fan of TMV, I can't really critisize how long it is -- then again TMV use other elements in their progressive style to apart from guitars, so I guess I can.

Dragonforce are talented, and I like a couple of songs, but as TK said, they spend more time writing perfect songs/insane solos and spend less time on everything else.

This is something DT is also accused of, unfortunately.

I think they are very good and their lyrics are very different. Though there is one of their songs that does deem to drag on (soldiers of the wasteland) Their guitar solos are very fast paced and long and i like that but i wonder how they can't be tired after each gig

For the record, I like the band, it's a good aural energy boost for when I am feeling flaccid. I just recognize how cheesy their lyrics are, repetitive their songs are and how long and pointless their guitar solos are.

Indeed.

This is what good guitarists playing music that is fun to listen to sounds like. ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

I really don't understand the obsession with some people over Dragonforce, as I see nothing original or impressive about them. Yes, the guitar player is a good shredder, but it doesn't go much further than that...
