With only two members of the original crew , the English power metal band from london, Dragonforce took the stage of the National of Montreal on a dark and cold night of April. Far from the major success and controversy of the past years the Montreal fans gave a very warm welcome to the newest addition to the team, Lead vocals Marc Hudson.
The band didn’t take the stage unarmed.The temperature quickly rose for the band who literally marked the past years with brutally fast rhythms and insane technical skills. In their new arsenal à brand new album released April 15, The power within, with a deadly fast song, the fastest yet made by the band : Fallen World.
Li and Totman
The two original pillars still standing of the band gave the Montreal fans what they deserved : an amazing show. Add in the mixture Vadim Pruzhanov, Dave Mackintosh, Frédéric Leclercq and the amazing and powerful voice of Marc Hudson the crowd went berserk with the first few notes of Die by the sword.
A very good show, a very generous DragonForce inflamed the National and all that well managed , once again, by BCI Canada.
