Long running Grammy-nominated extreme melodic power metal band DragonForce release their seventh album, ‘Reaching Into Infinity‘, on May 19. Once again recorded with Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Soilwork), the producer extraordinaire who helmed the UK-based group’s now three-year-old previous record ‘Maximum Overload‘, it will be available via earMUSIC in Europe, Metal Blade Records in the United States and Roadrunner in Japan.
‘Reaching Into Infinity‘ introduces Italian drummer Gee Anzalone, who joined the band for their first ever ‘best-of’ collection, ‘Killer Elite: The Hits, The Highs, The Vids’, released in 2016. It’s the third DragonForce album to feature frontman Marc Hudson, whose reign at the mic now enters its sixth year.
“The dragon represents us – DragonForce – and a form of music that’s been around for a very long time, emerging into an outside world that’s infinitely more crazy and chaotic than it was ten years ago,” Li explains, using considerable understatement. “Everyone is saying that there’s no future and there’s a lot of fear and uncertainty, especially for younger people, but our music is an escape from it all.“
