Dragonforce Release Extremely Extreme New Song “Highway to Oblivion”
Dragonforce’s new single “Highway to Oblivion,” the first to be released from their forthcoming album Extreme Power Metal, is hella catchy. I say that as someone who went into it with fairly low expectations because all Dragonforce songs kinda sound the same, and while this one is no exception, there’s something about it that just connects with me. Good riffs, catchy chorus, plenty of over-the-top Dragonforce-y stuff… but this one’s extra delicious in its melodic construction. It’s like Dragonforce have entered their Journey phase of extreme pop metal anthems or something.
Check it out below, along with a spiffy video that sees the band members star in a Tron-like futuristic universe. There’s a matching level in the Audica video game you can play here. Extreme Power Metal comes out on September 27th via Metal Blade; pre-order here.
