GearGods.net recently got a rundown of most of DRAGONFORCE‘s live gear for the band’s 2015 U.S. “Maximum Overload” tour. Check out the footage below.
DRAGONFORCE will release its debut DVD, “In The Line Of Fire”, on July 10 via Metal Blade. Shot in high definition during the band’s show at 2014’s Loud Park festival at the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan, the DVD was filmed using nine camera angles to capture the raw energy of DRAGONFORCE‘s show and instrumental dexterity for which they are rightly celebrated worldwide.
The track listing for “In The Line Of Fire” contains a mixture of new songs from DRAGONFORCE‘s latest album, “Maximum Overload”, and foot-stomping anthems and lightning-fast shred-fests from previous releases.
DRAGONFORCE is in the middle of the “Maximum Overload” world tour, which commenced in September 2014 and is due to conclude in 2016.
Commented DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li: “We always held the opinion that if we ever did a DVD, we wanted to do it properly. Now, having released six studio albums, we thought we had a great cross section of material to pick from and we knew the facilities at Loud Park made it a great place to film a show. Everything just came together and we’re very pleased with the results and hope the fans will be also.”
“Maximum Overload” was released in August 2014 in North America via Metal Blade and in Europe through earMUSIC, the Hamburg, Germany-based international rock label which is part of Edel Group. The CD was recorded at Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with OPETH, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA, SOILWORK and SYMPHONY X, to name a few. It marks the band’s first-ever album involving an outside producer, having historically opted to record themselves in association with Karl Groom.
