DRAGONFORCE Announces New Album Titled “Warp Speed Warriors” And A Music Video

Dragonforce Band 2023

DRAGONFORCE, the Grammy-nominated pioneering extreme power metal band will release their new album “Warp Speed Warriors”, on March 15, 2024! The legendary band consisting of guitar virtuosos and founding members Herman Li and Sam Totman, singer Marc Hudson, bassist Alicia Vigil and drummer Gee Anzalone prepares to release their most ambitious and innovative studio album to date. On this “Warp Speed Warriors” album, DRAGONFORCE explores a wider variety of musical styles than ever before, evolving their sound along an exciting musical journey while remaining true to their musical roots. Today, the band has teased what their album will sound like with their new single, “Power of the Triforce”, inspired by the world of Zelda games!

Herman Li on “Power of the Triforce”:

“We’re thrilled to unveil our latest track, a powerful homage inspired by one of our favorite video-game franchises, Zelda!  We’re eager for metal enthusiasts of all tastes to discover something special within its depths. Brace yourselves, as we’re gearing up to unleash this sonic adventure live during our upcoming tours!”

Herman added about “Warp Speed Warriors“:

“After four years of creative incubation, we are thrilled to release what we believe to be our most ambitious and grandiose record yet. This album showcases multiple facets of our artistic capabilities, and we invite metal fans from every corner of the genre to discover something captivating in its layers. We can’t wait to share this part of our musical journey with you, it’s going to be EPIC!”

The stunning opening track “Astro Warrior Anthem” lives up to DRAGONFORCE‘s reputation as the fastest band in the world, captivating the listener from the start and wowing with a guitar solo delivered at extreme speed. “Power Of The Triforce” keeps the volume high before DRAGONFORCE slows it down temporarily for the ballad “Kingdom Of Steel”. A fast drum pattern and pulsating guitar lead to the catchy “Burning Heart,” while the sing-song “Space Marine Corp” features a powerful, uplifting chorus. The electronic influence on the majestic power metal track “The Killer Queen” is hypnotic, as singer Marc Hudson‘s vocals soar. On “Doomsday Party“, 1980s rock influences meet a charming retro video game soundscape and an epic guitar solo in true DRAGONFORCE style. The final original song on “Warp Speed Warriors”, “Pixel Prison,” is followed by DRAGONFORCE‘s unexpected but brilliant cover of Taylor Swift‘s “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” as a bonus track to cap off the epic adventure.

The “Warp Speed Warriors” album was produced, mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud at Mix Unlimited in Los Angeles, California with Sam Totman and Herman Li. The album is an innovative and unparalleled listening experience that continues the band’s legacy with songs that will without a doubt, become instant classics within and outside the DRAGONFORCE canon.
