Re: Dragonforce

im not sure which other video you are talking about. in the post i quoted, there were two links both leading to the same video. to be honest, i dont have anything good to say about the "real" videos that have been posted in this thread, that's why i didn't comment on them. i was simply pointing out that the video you posted was mimed because i didn't feel that a mimed video was a good representation of their ability. i probably wouldn't have said anything at all, but the "watch it and stfu" line you followed the links with was a bit provoking, hense my "nitpicking"

Re: Dragonforce

Can we please shut up about them?

Every live clip I've seen of them, be they drunk or sober was sloppy as hell. Sure the studio stuff is clean, but then, thats done in a studio. Kaiser Nancarrow's main riff (Shawn Lane) was constructed note by note, it's not impossible for Dragonforce to build solos in a similar fashion (especially since thats what they're doing, taking things over and over until they get it right), however, while in Lane's case, the riff is damn near impossible to play, Dragonforce's stuff is just very simple movements done very fast.

As far as I care they're bottom of the barrel dudes that wish they could play like Alan Lennon or Rusty Cooley, and are trying to convince people they can. The fact is they can't. As for the music, I certainly find the music of most other turbo shredders (Lennon and Cooley as examples again, particularly Lennon) much more enjoyable, and bad as some of their tones can be (much as I like Rusty, I hate his tone) they're infinitely more pleasant to listen to than Dragonforce's tones, which all sound like a hyperactive gibbon playing a thousand nintendos.

Re: Dragonforce

Wasn't the original Dragonforce 'Betcha can't play this' a piss take, it certainly seemed so and its obvious those guys are amazing players, you just have to watch their serious videos of recording or playing live to see that...
