DragonForce To Release Greatest Hits Set, Plan New Album


DragonForce will release a best-of set entitled “Killer Elite – The Hits, The Highs, The Vids” on July 22nd through Spinefarm Records. The 22-track set will come in standard 2-CD/digital editions and a deluxe edition, with the latter boasting A DVD featuring all of the group’s various promotional videos. See below for the track listing and cover art, with guitarist Herman Li saying of the set:

“The aim of this release is to give a strong flavor of everything we’ve recorded so far, and I like to think it shows a lot of diversity. Certainly, we tried to make it as broad-based as possible. Since Marc joined the band [replacing original frontman ZP Theart,] we’ve actually released some of our speediest songs and some our most melodic compositions, too. DragonForce isn’t just about the relentless tempos and the flashy solos; ultimately, it’d the feel of the music that counts…”
