On their fourth full length, these British-via-Eastern Hemisphere phenoms make a case for why they're the new sultans of shred. Sure, you can't touch Herman Li and Sam Totman's speed-defying guitars, but then you can't sing along with ZP Theart's soaring vocals either. From the moment the lead track (and lead single) "Heroes of Our Time" kicks into its voracious electro-clash of guitars and video games (think an arcade turned up to 11), Dragonforce never let up, delivering a party sure to cause involuntary fist-pumping and/or air guitar for the whole record.
