DragonForce To Release New Live Album In September


DragonForce will be releasing a 2xCD live album dubbed “Twilight Dementia” through Roadrunner on September 14th. The effort was recorded across 19 UK shows of the bands “Ultra Beatdown Tour“. It also sports production from Karl Groom along with band guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. Speaking on the set, Li offered the following:

“For years, fans have been asking us to record a live album, but honestly, we never really had the time due to our worldwide touring commitments and studio album recording. However, due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans on the ‘Ultra Beatdown World Tour,’ we decided to finally put some real thought into it.”

The idea was to record every single show from the last leg of the tour, so we could pick the best take of each song without needing to do any overdubs in the studio; keeping the whole thing live, like all the classic live metal albums. These recordings really capture the raw sonic energy of a DragonForce show in fine detail. It is so real that you can hear the noise of the crowd and experience the show as it was that night – you can even hear the guitar pedals being stepped on!”
