INTO THE BEYOND

UK POWER METAL KINGS DRAGONFORCE FORGED THEIR OWN PATH WITH BLISTERING SOLOS, BUT SHREDDER HERMAN LI EXPLAINS WHY NEW RELEASE ‘REACHING INTO INFINITY’ SEES THEM BREAKING OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE.

DRAGONFORCE

Seven albums into their career, extreme power metal sextet Dragonforce (comprised of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman, keyboard player Vadim Pruzhanov, bassist Frédéric Leclercq, singer Marc Hudson and drummer Gee Anzalone) take umbrage with the idea that their music is just fantastical nonsense for entertainment only. Polite and fairly mellow, Herman bristles at the notion that his songs don’t discuss serious issues.

“People may think that the music sounds very happy, but there are some sad songs on this record,” he begins. “We don’t write nonsense – it’s actually harder to write nonsense than have a subject to write about! Fred wrote the song ‘Silence’ about a friend of his who committed suicide. It’s a deeply personal track that was very difficult for him to compose. Subject matter gives you a direction and structure to work to, every song means something.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
