Honestly, you guys are complete idiots, especially mr. BodomFan - Alexi gets more crap for his vocals than any other singer out there. Does Zos Kia Cultus even know what power metal is? Get "back with D M vocals" = you are a moron. How could anyone metalhead even dignify that with a response? You're all pathetic.

Love the band although I.R. went softer instead of heavier (too much synth. etc.). They've always forefronted Li so much thay every song loses it's bottom end. I think it limits them and subtracts from the songs themselves. Mercyful Fate and Priest are the best examples of that balance where touching the settings while listening isn't necessary.
I have no problem w/ ZP's vocals as it fits their sound cool enough. I think their guitars are untouchable and exactly what the speed/power metal scene needs to blow away some detractors. If they could land an opening spot on a Maiden/Metallica kind of tour they'd be unstoppable. Looking forward to their show in May.

Though I've only listened to some of their music, I personally like Dragonforce. They really can play. To those of you who have put down the vocalist, as it has been said this is powermetal, not something heavier, there is no need for heavier vocals. I personally quite like is vocals, and also like things that are way heavier.(gasp)For those who find they like the playing style but not the vocals, I would recomend Wintersun or Ensiferum, both of which tend to use a more death metal style of vocals.

Yes it is. The other guitarist and vocalist is Jari Mäenpää, formerly of Ensiferum, which he left to creat Wintersun. He wrote all the music and during recording played all bass, guitar and keyboard parts, as well as doing vocals(though not at once:-p).
I found Wintersun about half a year ago and still listen to it relitivly ofter.
I highly recomend it.

I think power metal would get a better shake if their was some
more extreme vocals not saying growling or anything but maybe less high pitched vocals. Im not crazy about dragonforce either no
offense but they sound like Journey on steriods and thanks for
the information about that aforementioned band,
