In a musical realm where bands of a similar generation are happy to ape the classic acts, London based metal superstars Dragonforce are operating in a world of their own. The increased heaviness and pace they have injected has made them a fresh voice in the world of metal, and one that fans have responded to as a result.
Dragonforce’s fifth studio album The Power Within has just been released locally through 3Wise Records and is a ten track monster which “they’ve carried it off with their usual cocky assurance” – Metal Hammer
To put it simply The Sword are a flat-out, supercharged, adrenaline-pumping outfit, a chrome-plated war machine that lauds over the blackened sky.
Coming off 2010’s acclaimed concept album ‘Warp Riders’, The Sword approached their latest offering from a new perspective. Wrapping poetic and poignant imagery in a haze of crushing riffs and ethereal melodies, Apocryphon is best described as ‘sheer awesomeness’. – Metal Assault
Joining the already huge number of acts who will be performing Sidewaves in 2013, this is a show not to be missed.
