International metal superstars DragonForce recently released their new album, Reaching Into Infinity, via Metal Blade Records in the USA; for their efforts, the band has now entered the Billboard charts! See below for all positions:

  • #5 Billboard Hard Music Albums
  • #12 Billboard Independent Albums
  • #16 Billboard Rock Albums
  • #48 Billboard Digital Albums
  • #58 Billboard Top 200 Current Albums
  • #70 Billboard Top 200

 

For their seventh studio album, DragonForce has opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody. "I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music," Frederic Leclercq (bass) comments. "It's great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc's vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!" The first album to feature Gee Anzalone (drums), the Italian drummer has laid down an impressive performance to provide the perfect backbone to the DragonForce sound, which of course still boasts the band's trademark insanely-fast solos, courtesy of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman. Recording the bulk of the album at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden, with producer Jens Bogren, the band also laid down tracks while touring their Killer Elite "best of"-album, utilizing Lamerluser Studios, (London, UK), Dark Lane Studios (Witney, UK), as well as the band's own Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mezieres, France and Shredforce One Studios (CA, USA).
