The Definitive And First Ever 'Best Of' Dragonforce Release!

DragonForce, the Grammy-nominated power metallers, are poised to release a comprehensive career-spanning 'Best Of' – the first time the UK band have presented this kind of historical 'chapter & verse' collection.
 
'Killer Elite – The Hits, The Highs, The Vids,' out via Spinefarm Records, is a 22-track set, which fully showcases the ambition, variety and skill of the group's musical output, now taking in six studio albums; elements of thrash, speed and power metal are spread across accelerated rockers and more measured, melodic offerings – from biggest hit, "Through The Fire And Flames," a staple inclusion on several best-selling video games, and recently used as the basis of a US mockumentary featuring the band and Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey, through to 'Dawn Over A New World,' a ballad harking back to the early years.
 
With latest recruit, singer Marc Hudson, now having two studio albums under his belt (2012's 'The Power Within' and 2014's 'Maximum Overload'), 'Killer Elite' is the chance for new fans to familiarise themselves with glories past and for long-standing supporters to revel in the attention to detail of a multi-format package balancing audience faves with compositions close to the collective DragonForce heart.

Says guitarist Herman Li, who started the group in 1999 with fellow shredder Sam Totman: "The aim of this release is to give a strong flavour 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's the feel of the music that counts."
