16th February 2012
London based Metal superstars Dragonforce recently revealed details of their forthcoming new album. Entitled 'The Power Within', the ten track monster is the band's fifth studio album, and first with new singer Marc Hudson in the fold.
DragonForce guitarist Herman Li said: "The last two years have been the most fun we ever had making an album. Through writing, jamming and touring together, we have built this incredible energy and it has been fully captured on the new album.

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 on April 15th 2012 via the band's own Electric Generation Recordings, distributed by Essential Music (UK), Roadrunner Records (North America), 3Wise (Australia) and JVC Victor (Japan).
Li added: "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. It's all hands on deck running it, but a great buzz!"
Dragonforce play London's 100 Club on Oxford Street on Thursday night and the gig is apparently sold out already...
