Prior to the show, bassist Frédéric Leclerq and drummer Dave Mackintosh did a short interview, where they talked about Hudson's recruitment, the new material, and more. You can now watch the whole interview below.

It'll be interesting to see how Marc does, what he brings to the band and if the new album actually ends up being as varied as they say it will be. I've also read somewhere that Fred said in another interview that it'll have a strong Sonic Firestorm vibe to it. I certainly wouldn't mind this, as that along with Valley of the Damned are my two favourite Dragonforce albums.

The new songs they've performed sound pretty awesome and not of the generic dragonforce "speed with more hyper-fast speed" type. If these are as good as the whole album then Im sure it'll be a fantastic album.

Let there be cheese, let there be cheese, let there be cheese and dragon flys free

I'm sceptical but hoping to be surprised.

New vocalist, same music. Doesn't make a difference.

Will be amased if it sounds any different to any of their other stuff. Is it just me or do they sound less than enthusiastic about the new singer?

I wish I could be in a position like this as a band, just keep doing the same album over and over then surprise the fuck out of everyone with an experimental noise/industrial metal album.

...not sure wat youve been listening too but Last Fallen World is self-proclaimed "fastest and most extreme dragonforce song yet" and even tho the sound quality isnt the best on the youtube videos that i watched of this song, it sure looks and sounds like theyre living up to the statement.

I really hope the next album is much more varied like the above interview suggests... the playing-hyper-fast-every-song novelty has worn off now. "Cry Thunder" is certainly different than most Dragonforce songs, as it's mid-paced, though "Last Fallen World" has the typical Dragonforce sound of the past 3 albums. Im definitely far more looking forward to hearing this album than I was in the lead up to the previous one. Hopefully a more varied approach and a new singer can produce a great power metal album this time! xD

I hope it'll be their first album I can enjoy in one sitting. I like DragonForce, if I listen to a couple of tracks at most and then leave it. To be listening to one of their albums from beginning to end is just to much for me. Can't stand it then.

Yeah, I kinda jumped to conclusions after hearing the first song then thought Last Fallen World was going to be in the same vein. Oops.
