DRAGONFORCE To Release New Album In August.


+ from this author

Brit Metallers DRAGONFORCE will release their new album titled  “Maximum Overload” on August 18 through the German based label earMUSIC. The record was produced by Jens Bogren, who has worked with the likes of: Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, Amon Amarth and Soilwork. This latest offering by the band was produced at Fascination Studios in Sweden.

DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li commented: “Working with Jens gave us a different perspective on the songs and a different sound dynamic.” “We always previously recorded in our own studios, but recording in Sweden made us focus and maybe drove us harder.”Jens certainly did; he doesn’t believe in days off!”

He continued: “The album title and album cover artwork is inspired by the constant bombardment of information we are subjected to during our daily lives.

“We were in an airport departure lounge surrounded by TV screens, flight information screens and advertising screens. We then looked around and no one was saying a word, they were all looking at more screens on tablets, laptops and mobile phones. There’s no escaping it; it’s complete information overload!”

The record will also feature a guest appearance on some of the songs from TRIVIUMs Matt Heafy
