In an April 2012 interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Li was asked if there was an “aha” moment when he was first starting to play guitar that he realized he was capable of great speed. “Maybe I can explain it this way: I’m not a person who’s over-confident,” he said. “If you think you know, you really don’t know. Me personally, I think the more you learn, the more you realize the world of guitar is so big and you haven’t really learned enough. There’s not really a time that I feel I mastered anything. I think each album is just a snapshot of our lives and things change and people come out with other things and you go, ‘Oh, that’s cool,’ and take some things from that. If I think I know, then I think the music becomes boring because there’s nothing to pursue.”
DRAGONFORCE‘s recent North American headlining tour marked the band’s first trek with new singer Marc Hudson, who also makes his recorded debut on “The Power Within”.
“The Power Within” was released in the U.K. on April 16 via the band’s own Electric Generation Recordings, distributed by Essential Music.
