DragonForce, England’s sensational power metal and speed metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
The band was formed (under the moniker DragonHeart) in London (England) in 1999 by guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. They recruited vocalist ZP Theart, drummer Matej Setinc, bassist Steve Scott, and keyboardist Steve Williams to complete the line up and recorded their debut demo tape in 2000. The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Herman (guitars and backing vocals), Sam (guitars and backing vocals), Vadim Pruzhanov (keyboards, keytar, synthesizer, theremin, and backing vocals), Frédéric Leclercq (bass, guitars, and backing vocals), Marc Hudson (lead vocals and backing vocals), and Gee Anzalone (drums, percussion, and backing vocals). Their musical style is best described as a blend of power metal (a subgenre of heavy metal that blends traditional metal with speed metal, often within symphonic context, and is also characterized by a more uplifting sound) and speed metal (a subgenre of heavy metal music that originated in the late 1970s from new wave of British heavy metal and is extremely fast, abrasive, and technically demanding). They’ve had a stellar career with 7 studio albums, 2 live albums, 8 music videos, 16 singles, and 1 demo tape.
Don't miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to power metal and speed metal!
