Dragonforce, the Grammy-nominated power metal band, is poised to release a comprehensive career-spanning "best of" collection.

"Killer Elite - The Hits, The Highs, The Vids," is scheduled for a July 23rd release through Spinefarm Records. The 22-track set features two hours and 30 minutes of music with both studio and live material and promo clips added to the deluxe set.

It encompasses everything, most definitely including biggest hit "Through The Fire And Flames," a staple inclusion on Guitar Hero and recently used as the basis of a U.S. mockumentary featuring the band and Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey.

With latest recruit, singer Marc Hudson, now having two studio albums under his belt (2012's "The Power Within" and 2014's "Maximum Overload"), "Killer Elite..." is the chance for new fans to familiarize themselves with glories past and for long-standing supporters to revel in the attention to detail of a multi-format package balancing audience faves with compositions close to the collective Dragonforce heart.

Guitarist Herman Li comments: "The aim of this release is to give a strong flavor of everything we've recorded so far, and I like to think it shows a lot of diversity. Certainly, we tried to make it as broad-based as possible. Since Marc joined the band (replacing original frontman ZP Theart), we've actually released some of our speediest songs and some our most melodic compositions, too. Dragonforce isn't just about the relentless tempos and the flashy solos; ultimately, it'd the feel of the music that counts..."
