DragonForce Add Giant Arcade Games To Their Live Show


DragonForce have upped their stage production for their latest run in Europe, bringing along with them two gigantic arcade games to flank the stage. While the arcade cabinets don’t appear to be playable (they show a montage of footage from various video games) they are capable of being played on as both guitarists display in the below clip.

The footage filmed during their set this past weekend at the ‘Elb-Riot‘ festival in Hamburg, Germany. That show also served as their final live performance with bassist Frédéric Leclercq.

If you’re somehow not aware, DragonForce feature some avid gamers among their ranks and got a huge career boost from their song “Through The Fire And Flames” being included in the ‘Guitar Hero‘ video game series.

Their new album “Extreme Power Metal” is due in stores on September 27th (complete with a Nintendo Entertainment System inspired pre-order option) while the following tours have been booked for the immediate future:
