''[=DragonForce=]'' ([[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture sic]]) are a British band famed for their epic fantasy lyrics and energetic, over-the-top style of extreme power metal. On the other hand, they're also quite widely hated for having songs with similar structure and writing, and being perceived by some as stereotyping PowerMetal as nothing more than super fast guitars, double bass drums and high pitched vocals about dragons, as well as various false accusations that they digitally speed up their playing and the occasional ItsPopularNowItSucks. They're best known for [[ThatOneBoss their appearance]] in ''VideoGame/GuitarHero 3''.

Not to be confused with the SegaSaturn game ''VideoGame/DragonForce'', although said game was the inspiration for their name - they're [[OneOfUs self-confessed video game geeks]] (hence video game-like sound effects in their songs).

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: One of their songs is very reminiscent of that level in the very first ''DawnOfWar'' where you storm a corrupted temple.
