10 says Bullet for My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold get in on your awful list.

You win.

Oh god no. All their songs sound exactly the same, and they don't even use that diverse of songwriting! They are terrible.

Good players, though.

May the Force be with us.

Duh! Dragonforce might suck live but that's only because they screw up on their fiuckin solos! They are the coolest band ever!

If they make some more good DIFFERENT albums, I'll be happy to see them there.

What am I about to say about Dragonforce may be interpreted as blasphemous by some but hear me out.

They remind me of where Deep Purple was in the late 60's. Good sound, lots of potential, but absolutely no direction. Now don't get me wrong. Herman Li has, at best, 1% of Richie Blackmore's talent. But my point DF has some solid pieces in place to be something special but refuses to develop. There are some fairly simple (well, on paper anyway) remedies to what ails them. First, they need to dump ZP Theart and get someone who can actually sing. Second, find a producer who can give them some direction. Someone along the lines of Ron Nevison or Beau Hill would do them a lot of good.

Posted by Randy on Saturday, 03.14.09 @ 02:00am

I don't see that at all. I think ZP Theart is one of the best singers out there. How can you like Ian Gillan's singing but not Theart's? Besides, if you try and overproduce this band, they'll just turn into another mindless mainstream sellout band like Metallica.

Posted by Metalsmith on Saturday, 03.14.09 @ 13:21pm

As soon as they stop using computers to make their music I'll vote yes.

Posted by Dustin on Friday, 09.18.09 @ 21:55pm

ZP is one of the best singers ever. He has a countertenor voice. Falsetto plays a big part in his singing. He can hold high notes and screams for long periods of time.

Herman and Sam are awesome guitarists. They have been in and on tons of magazines. They can play fast and slow. Herman can play death metal guitar. Background vocals are done by everyone in the band.

The drummer is really good with those double bass pedals.
Everyone in the band has a different background. This band is a perfect band for this hall of fame. No Rap or pop should be in here.

Posted by ComboKing on Tuesday, 10.6.09 @ 17:46pm

Depending on the circumstances, I can scream and sing falsetto for extended periods of time, too!!!

What's your point...???

Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 10.6.09 @ 18:26pm

The soloing is kind of mindless. There are A LOT of hard rock and metal bands that deserve it before we can even think about them.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 03.4.10 @ 19:39pm

Great, another idiot who thinks that pop and rap are irredeemable shit (in refrence to comboking).
Dragonforce is a one trick pony.
