DragonForce Deliver The 'Fastest Song Ever Recorded'
The track, "Fallen World," is the first official release featuring the band's new vocalist, Marc Hudson, who stepped in after ZP Theart left the band in 2010. Guitarist Herman Li says the sessions for The Power Within have been the most fun the band has ever had in the studio. "Through writing, jamming and touring together, we have built this incredible energy and it has been fully captured on the new album," Li says. "This time around we've really brought our metal side to the surface and made some of the best music of our career. From the fastest song we've ever recorded to the slower songs, and some things you would never expect from us, this is by far the most diverse DragonForce album yet."
The Power Within will be released by Roadrunner Records on April 17 in the U.S. It will hit the U.K. two days earlier via the band's own label, Electric Generation Recordings, which is distributed by Essential Music. "This is an exciting new era for DragonForce with Marc joining the band, so we figured this was an ideal time to take full control of our own destiny and establish our own record label for Europe," Li said. "It's all hands on deck running it, but a great buzz!" more on this story
