First two albums to be re-issued with bonus audio/DVD content on February the 22nd 2010 via Spinefarm Records UK.

Both titles will now be available with updated packaging and bonus audio/DVD content, some of it exclusive to these releases...

Formed in 1999, DragonForce issued their "Valley Of The Damned" debut in 2003 - an impressive nine-track showcase for their accomplished power metal forays. Containing a host of songs that still rank amongst the most popular of their output, the likes of "Black Fire", "Evening Star" and the title track itself, "VOTD" has now been Remixed and Remastered to allow every aspect of the recordings to make maximum impact...

"Fans who have heard the original mixes many times might find that the songs sound a bit different now," observes guitarist Herman Li, "but that's how we always wanted the original songs to sound. We just didn't have the time back then to make everything sound the way we wanted."

The studio track, "Where Dragons Rule", has now been added to the audio side, and there is a bonus DVD featuring never-before-seen live footage ('Valley Of The Damned', filmed in Japan), behind-the-scenes material (also from Japan), video commentaries, plus in-studio interviews and clips (shot in Denmark & the UK), all of it lovingly assembled by Li himself.

2004 saw the release of the follow-up album, "Sonic Firestorm", which gave the band the chance to hone their skills and push their fast-lane tales of fantasy to a whole new level. They were happy with "Sonic..." at the time and remain so to this day, which is why the mixing and the mastering have been left just as they are; however, the packaging has been upgraded, an extra track added ("Cry Of The Brave" - a song the group felt uncomfortable taking off first time around), and - as with "Valley..." - a bonus DVD added, this one featuring live footage from Japan ("Fury Of The Storm"), video commentaries plus freshly recorded interviews with the band members themselves.

As a way of celebrating the recordings that effectively launched DF's international career, both re-issued albums will be included in a limited edition box along with exclusive band merchandise and various exclusive collectable items (1 x T-Shirt / 1 x Plectrum / 1 x inflatable guitar).

Indeed, Sonic Firestorm was my first metal album I ever heard and I still love it today. It doesn't match up to many of the bands I listen to now... but its still very good.

Inhuman Rampage... what ever happened there.

Well, atleast we're getting the old Dragonforce instead of their next album, which will aptly be titled "Mega Super Sonic Beatdown".

I loved VotD, lot's a great stuff on that album.

They might as well take their last release and put them in different cases. How would anyone notice the difference? XP

Haha i reckon, i only ever really liked the song Valley of the Damned (back when they were virtually unknown) from their demo. After the demo they sucked!

Sonic firestorm! they'd matured their sound just right on that one, before all their songs started sounding like video game music

No one buys CDs anymore why the fuck do they need to re-release them? Especially considering how recent they are...this whole thing is just illogical all around.

I agree there, it's not like those albums are old ancient relics you need to track down for days.
BudDa - 28.01.2010 at 11:37  
I don't think theres any logical reason as to why they are re-issuing these other than just to make money. Which, btw, aint a bad thing..
Warrior_Of_Ice - 28.01.2010 at 21:55  
Spinefarm should re-issue their fan base too. This is absolute nonsense. Valley of the Damned and Sonic Firestorm were solid albums, leave them alone. Stupid fans purchasing their new shit gives Dragonforce the false sense of security that their work is great.
Lit. - 30.01.2010 at 03:39  
I might get them. I like to collect CD's.
Although I personally think their 2 newer CD's are better.

Dragonforce IS Metal, you fuckers!

So we can get an inflatable guitar. Give me a break. WTF. Is that kind of shit really a selling point for an album these days?
