DRAGONFORCE PREPARES THE WORLD FOR AN ULTRA BEATDOWN

Attention heavy metal warriors and guitar heroes across the land. DragonForce are pleased to announce Ultra Beatdown as the title of their forthcoming new album for Roadrunner Records, due in stores on August 25.

Ultra Beatdown is an epic, sweeping, grand collection of infectious guitar anthems that’ll inspire all who listen to either pump their fists in the air or pick up a guitar, whether it be real or virtual. DragonForce‘s single from 2006′s Inhuman Rampage, “Through The Fire and Flames,” exploded on the public beyond the metal world thanks to its appearance on the massively popular guitar simulator game. The single has been RIAA certified Gold in the U.S.

The track listing for Ultra Beatdown is as follows:

1. Heroes of Our Time
2. The Fire Still Burns
3. Reasons to Live
4. Heartbreak Armageddon
5. The Last Journey Home
6. A Flame for Freedom
7. Inside the Winter Storm
8. The Warrior Inside

  6. UKA666 says:

    YEAH!!!! i’ve heared some songs too… this album will be wonderfull i love Dragonforce

  7. ??? says:

    The album’s been leaked. I’m listening to it now. It’s frickin’ amazing! Not as good as Sonic Firestorm IMHO, but great anyway. Much better than the shambles that was Inhuman Rampage.

  8. I haven’t heard it yet and I don’t plan to until I buy it, I’m not into downloading.

    I have to admit that I’m not a big Dragonforce fan. I just got into the band recently due to all the hype, I decided it was time to check them out. Turns out I’ve had VALLEY OF THE DAMNED in my collection for a long time and I never got around to listening to it, I just filed it away. So far I like what I hear.

    omg, omg, omg i like totaly cant wait for this album to drop. I jus wanna know wtf is on the album cover, i like totaly cant figure out wut it is. i’m like a total noob…. lol rofl lmao

  10. Mike Mcgee says:

    I am listening to the whole album on there website, and it is amazing. I cant believe how awesome it is. Another epic album!!!!! i cant wait!!!!!!!!

  11. Shadows says:

    I have to go to school or i would be the first out to buy it!

  12. NOTa DRAGON fan says:

    Okay…not sure what all the hype is about…been listening to tracks from all 4 of their CDs and I can honestly say I’m completely unimpressed. I’m a big fan of metal too. The nearest I can compare them to is Dream Theater on Cocain and sped up an hundredfold. Only Dream Theater has their art honed to a fine craftsmanship. These guys are trying hard, but just don’t have it. (My opinion only.)

  13. Tyler says:

    lol “forthcoming new album”

  14. petruccifan888 says:

    i agree NOTa DRAGON. i am a huge fan of dragonforce though, and even though i love their songs, they lack real creativity. lol i forgot who it was but a metal guitarist that was impersonating Herman went “We Record the same song 8 times!” (only my opinion)

  15. yo says:

    ehmmm…
    ps…
    dragonforce esta bien chido!!!!
    XD
    arriba el metal!!!
    viva mexico ……!!!
    jejeje

  16. chubby badger says:

    omfg!!!!!!!!! if u say that as it sounds, it sounds funny lmao. i like this album.

  17. Xtaban says:

    They don’t lack creativity, it’s amazing how they can come up with their solos, it takes a CRAP load of creativity and imagination to pull that off. And no… not anyone can play something really fast and sound just like them. I’ll admit though that their songs get kinda repetitive and I don’t like listening to WHOLE albums of them. I only listen to about 3 to 4 of my favorite songs from every album and it’s just fine. Now onto this album, good album, great lead off song, but the album cover just sucks. Whoever they got to do their art work needs to go back to doing signatures (or siggies) for online board junkies cuz this just doesn’t cut it.

  18. Ah! Herman Ri! says:

    Ultra Beatdown is amazing! Best album yet, but some complaints…It’s too…futuristic…some of the songs could tne-down Vadim’s keys, but other than that it’s damn-near perfect! Reasons to Live is amazing!

  19. DESDE CHILE EXELENTE GRUPO MUCHAS GRACIAS

  21. nick coggins says:
