I've long since had a theory that most of DragonForce's songs were just sped of versions of what they really record. Here's a slowed down version of "Through the Fire and the Flames". I like it better, and it also sounds like a normal song, making my theory even more possibly true.

haha this is awesome http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSNLfa1VPwo

anyway, I can't find it, but I saw this "bet you can't play this" thing with both of the guitarists, and it was so bad. They're not very good... they just play super fast so you can't tell what they're doing.

Also, I think one of the members falls off the stage in every live video I've seen.

Edit: oh, and I can't watch the clip you posted, Alec. I need some stupid plugin. :-/

YES.
I'm glad I didn't have to post all that. And I would have.
The Dragon Force guitarists are two of the biggest hack musicians I've ever known of.

At about 2:12 it looks like the singer has to battle an urge to start skanking.

This restored my faith (That Herman Ri took away) that Asians are good guitarists. Herman/Sam must feel pwned that theres loads of kids out there who can play their stuff better than them.

They've got a decent singer, and the songs are written well... maybe they just need to kick out their shitty guitarists and hire some of these kids.

Theres definatly talent in the band, their drummer for example is a machine, I'm sure of it.

The worst part is just the egos on the guitarists. They're the weakest parts of the band, yet they're the ones running around bragging about how awesome they are.

Does it really matter how good the guitarist's are? As if people actually take the band seriously anyway.

A lot of people take them seriously and think they're the greatest band ever. And it matters about the guitarists because they're the "highlight" of the band and run around bragging about how great they are.

Really? O_o Most people I know tend to like them as a joke band. And tbh I've never really heard them bragging.

I can't find the video, but I'm particularly referring to the "I bet you can't play this!" video, where they're showing off these techniques they can do (which they really suck at).

Well for now all I can find is this:

It's lip-syncing from the original video though.

That's not showboating. "I bet you can't play this" is a column in the Guitar World magazine. Basically, different guitarists in every issue contributes some really difficult riff or whatever. "I bet you can't play this" is just a standard opening line said by every guitarist who's done the column.

If that's the only thing you mean, I've never seen them talk so highly about themselves.
