London-based metal superstars DragonForce will release their fifth studio album, The Power Within, on April 17. The 10-track, highly varied disc (cover below) marks the band’s first release with new singer Marc Hudson.
Says guitarist Herman Li, “The last two years have been the most fun we ever had making an album. Through writing, jamming and touring together, we have built this incredible energy and it has been fully captured on the new album.
“This time around we’ve really brought our metal side to the surface and made some of the best music of our career. From the fastest song we’ve ever recorded to the slower songs, and some things you would never expect from us, this is by far the most diverse DragonForce album yet.”
The full tracklisting for The Power Within is as follows:
1. Holding On
2. Fallen World
3. Cry Thunder
4. Give Me the Night
5. Wings of Liberty
7. Heart of the Storm
8. Die By the Sword
