20. Strike of the Ninja (Ultra Beatdown, 2008)

“Another dangerously catchy song, and the shortest one, too. This one also has easy-to-remember lyrics and an awesome choir-like sound mixed greatly with that epic guitar sound. Really awesome song.”

19. Dawn Over a New World (Sonic Firestorm, 2004)

“This song is a reflection of a new world with harmony, glory and happiness, without wars and conflicts, especially the intro with acoustic guitar and the beautiful solo of Herman with Sam”

18. Black Winter Night (Valley of the Damned, 2003)

“The KEY Changes in this song are absolute solid gold, and the whole track is genius. This song is much better than Heroes of our Time, only reason it is so low is that nobody knows anything about them BEFORE Guitar Hero 3. Valley of the Damned is the Best Album, period.”

17. Inside the Winter Storm (Ultra Beatdown, 2008)

“Those who base their music tastes exclusively off the songs found in Guitar Hero praise DragonForce to the point of where I never wanted to listen to them. However, I eventually caved in and gave most of their discography a listen. Each album doesn’t differ to greatly from one another, but they are exciting documents.”

16. The Game (Maximum Overload, 2014)

“An awesome song, telling the story of how it’s all about the important things in life that matters. This is the perfect song to listen to after you’ve had a bad, frustrating day”

15. Where Dragons Rule (Valley of the Damned, 2003)

“his song is probably Dragonforce’s most easily and dangerously catchy song. The lyrics are a piece of cake to remember, the transition from the slow and steady part to the fast and furious part is epic, and the guitar solo is awesome.”

14. Heartbreak Armageddon (Ultra Beatdown, 2008)

“The music of Dragonforce is much like the movie Death Race. If you want super-fast drums, uncontrollable, wailing guitars, and medieval lyrics about “storming the burning fields in the dead of winter for now and evermore” then Dragonforce is incredible!”

13. Seasons (The Power Within, 2012)

“This song has very emotional lyrics, and they are especially brought out in its acoustic version. In my opinion, it sounds like it is speaking of repairing ones soul after a tragedy. This is now my favorite Dragonforce song! Keep up the good work!”

12. My Spirit Will Go On (Sonic Firestorm, 2004)

“One of the first Dragonforce songs I ever heard, and it definitely deserves to be in everyone’s favorites. This is like the ideal image of an epic metal song. That beginning sequence is just epic, no other words to describe it.”

11. Three Hammers (Maximum Overload, 2014)

“Easily one of their most memorable songs. I won’t be surprised if this becomes their most iconic in the near future. Beautiful verse (especially the short mid-verse solo, that takes you completely by surprise), astonishingly catchy chorus. And I have no words for the bridge – I just feel blessed to have heard it.”

10. Cry for Eternity (Inhuman Rampage 2005)

“This was actually a close call between this and “The Last Journey Home”. In my opinion, the opening sequence wasn’t epic enough. Actually, I used to have “Soldiers of the Wasteland” in this spot because of the middle part where it’s slow and the guitar riffs are cool, but that rapidly went down the list once I came across this song, which had a much cooler guitar sequence in the middle, plus that wicked keyboard solo afterward.”

9. The Last Journey Home (Ultra Beatdown, 2008)

“One of the best solos of all time by far. This solo has immortalized Dragonforce and they will be remembered 50 years hence to be the creator of what can be called, one of the best songs of metal. For now, this song is sadly underrated from being different from the usual super-fast beats. But that is what makes this stand out and it will become a legendary track no doubt.”

8. Soldiers of the Wasteland (Sonic Firestorm, 2004)

“All of their songs have amazing intros, along with the fantastic duo guitar solos, and great sound effects with some nice synth melody’s to follow up. I feel this song has all of this mixed in really well.”

7. Revolution Deathsquad (Inhuman Rampage, 2005)

“This is the one DragonForce song where the guitars really take centerstage in this whole affair. A whopping 3 minutes of solos, and with Sam and Herman shredding through the solos at the same time most of the time (I.E. the Twinblast solos) you just get this feeling that you have plunged straight into DragonForce’s shredding heaven.”

6. Cry Thunder (The Power Within, 2012)

“This song contains everything DragonForce is: Good vs Evil lyrics, awesome guitar, great riff, a chorus you can’t help but scream out… It’s my favorite song to listen to after I wake up and head off to work.”

5. Operation Ground and Pound (Inhuman Rampage, 2005)

“Such a wonderful song. Hard to pick as there are many I would vote for- Trail of broken hearts, three hammers, through the fire and flames, the last journey home and many more- but operation ground and pound is the song I just go ‘wow’ to every time I listen to it.”

4. Heroes of Our Time (Ultra Beatdown, 2008)

“I think from this band because the guitar solo is very difficult and for me it took a long time to learn it. Their Music video about Heroes of Our Time also great! I love it so much”

3. Valley of the Damned (Valley of the Damned, 2003)

“This is the best one. Not only the guitarists skill level but also in the phrases and wording it has. When listening to this song I can actually visualize me on a medieval battlefield fighting of hordes of enemies. It puts you there in the Valley of the Damned.”

2. Fury of the Storm (Sonic Firestorm, 2004)

“Greatest chorus of any song ever. Straight up. Gives me goosebumps every time I think about it. The solos seemed a little to repetitive compared to other Dragonforce songs.”

1. Through the Fire and Flames (Inhuman Rampage, 2005)

“Easily with the harder to guitar solos. This song right here is a whole 7 and-a-bit minutes of awesome action pace rock. The hardest song I have ever heard in my life. And yet excruciatingly difficult to play but still playable. There are many covers for it ranging from violins to piano, I myself are attempting to play the piano version of it and I can tell you it is hard as heck!”
