The production leaves a lot to be desired and ZP spends way too much time swearing for no
apparent reason, but the guitarists and Mackintosh sure bring it. If nothing else, it shows
that Dragonforce aren't nearly the punch-line that people have made them out to be.
While this showcase shows that Dragonforce are more than capable of playing live, the vocals are lazy and the music can sound pretty thin when they play guitar harmonies (Due to the lack of rhythm guitar playing). Despite all this the performance is pretty much spot on, the guitar soloing is epic and extreme, the drumming is close to insane and the keyboard work backs up the music very well.
A great performance from DragonForce, one of the most famous metal bands. Also one of the most hated, one of the reasons being that they sucked live, judging from the horrible cellphone recordings and sound problems backstage. DragonForce completely demolishes this notion with the release of this live album. Everything is spot-on, including the vocals. A nice listen, and the album that brought me back to DragonForce after a few long years. In fact, the only thing I don't like is how often ZP Theart swears, IMO, a little too often. "Fuck yeah!"
