i love draognforce, and i love herman li, but all the people that say they are the fastest band and that he's the fastest guitar player are clueless noobs. the only thing i don't like about them are their ignorant guitar hero fan base. i love everything else.

and yes i would like them to take more risks on their albums and get away from the playing nothing but fast cords and solo stuff. yes, a lot of their material sounds alike, but then again, i find many others to be the same way

I'd rather have my asshole sewn shut with a rusty needle than sit through 2 minutes of Dragonforce. I don't understand the hype at all.

By "earning it" he means you just have to be around frequent enough that people recognize you.

the first album was great

after that - yeah kinda boring

I do like Herman Li though. They don't seem to take it too seriously

also, CERRITOS huh? did you tell Doug he rules?

Valley of the Damned was a decent cheesy power metal album. It was pretty good for a debut album, and actually had a bit more variation than the stuff they've put out since. Back then is basically just seemed like they were a really cheesy band that played very fast, kind of a novelty, but nothing major. The second album was a bit more overdone, but still listenable once in a huge while. Then after the whole stupid Fire and the Flames Guitar Hero thing, it all just blew up WAY the fuck too big. Inhuman Rampage took things past the point of no return in terms of making shitty hyperspeed video game music. Not to mention the retarded fanbase this band generally attracts. I liked the first two albums enough to warrant a trip to see them in early 2006, but it was one of the only shows I've ever walked out on. It was awful. I was just bored beyond all belief, from the likeness of the songs to the sloppiness of the playing. I don't believe either guitarist has ANY substance whatsoever. Any pointless skills they have are completely canceled out by their inability to write any kind of decently memorable melodies, leads, or solos. At the very least, at least other wanky guitarists built on speed have the decency to at least be extremely proficient, unlike them.
