DragonForce - Valley Of The Damned 2003 Sanctuary/Noise Records - Reviewed by IcedMojo
1. Invocation of the Apocalyptic Evil 2. Valley of the Damned 3. Black Fire 4. Black Winter Night 5. Starfire 6. Disciples of Babylon 7. Revelations 8. Evening Star 9. Heart of a Dragon
A band once known as Dragonheart (so why did they change their name? you tell me!) but that is not important now, what is important is Valley Of The Damned, currently residing on Sanctuary/Noise Records www.noiserecords.com.
These guys kick some major ass. With brilliant guitar riffs and awesome solos (some of the best I have heard), this speed/power metal band should have great things ahead.
You can check out Black Winter Night as well as the phenomenal cover art at www.dragonforce.com. The song showcases the many talents of the band. However, I am going to vote Black Fire as my favorite track.
Now, going out on a limb, I would have to say Valley Of The Damned is easily in my top 5 CDs of 2003.
