Do they really play their songs? One of my friends said they mimed them. If anybody can provide a link showing their authenticity, I would really appriciate it. And if they really do play, who the fuck told them that mortals could play guitar that fast?

Saw them live & didnt look mimed. They just get alot of aggro from power metal purists who see their popularity as both baffling & bad for the genre

They can, but they are notorious for getting out of sync when performing live.

You know - This would be okay if they were a bunch of 13 year olds at a battle of the bands..
Haha that is true they do suck live

I'd like to think i've made it my own over the time i've spent here.... but yes, it is. Thank you. I call it the Ultrahelm.

Dragonforce are not a live band. This is no reason to like them any less, just don't go their concerts. They promise and they deliver what they deliver. This is for some, and not for others. That's really all there is too it.

For someone (like myself) who enjoys musicianship I think it.

I used to like them but after I saw them live on youtube and realized what a joke they are I stopped listening to them and now I have a bad habit of ranting about how much I hate them..

Are a silly band that make silly music with silly lyrics about fairly silly topics.

...though once you accept the silly they're fairly fun to listen too.

So much talent....terrible terrible live skills. Reminds you of a hip-hop "show" where live..shit just doesn't work. It's almost like theyre all trying to out play each other. Ego's i guess. ::shrug:: whatever bands lame anyway.

I've heard they perform poorly at their live concerts due to alcohol and such.

Also, a thread about this came up like a couple weeks ago when I first joined the forums.

What made you start the ranting hate thing?

I am so sick of people crapping all over other peoples tastes in music.

Doesnt matter if they are as good as the recorded versions or not. They play so damn fast, I listen to them, even though I hate the music itself. They are so fucking insane, I really don't think they are human.

Dragonforce is the enemy. Right up there with Britney Spears and every other pretty face with a vocoder who can't actually perform their songs on demand. They represent the antithesis of the creative energy that makes live music worthwhile. It's OK to make music you couldn't make yourself - techno, for instance - and not every performance has to be Kind of Blue either. Just don't try to sell me concert tickets if you can't actually give me a concert.

I've seen them live 2 times now. I enjoy their performances and music. Haters can hate all they want, makes no difference to me. Its just good old fasioned fun at a DF gig.

Haha I know can you believe it? My favorite is 5:45 of Cry for Eternity [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6lE7R1aiVs#t=5m45s]. Even some of my musician friends and family don't know how they do that.
