Ridiculous in concept and demonstrating flashes of unreal metallic shred execution, Dragonforce's overamplified, warp-speed version of Euro power metal is chased down and caught long enough on the eight-track INHUMAN RAMPAGE to showcase this UK sensation's blazing chops and deliberate over the top style. And while this band hurdles guitar and keyboard solos at the listener at a blistering pace, there's enough melody in between instrument clinics posing as songs such as "Storming the Burning Fields" and "Through the Fire and Flames" to illicit horned hand salutes across the globe. Just be warned, this one is cheesy, but in a high grade, spread it on your cracker kind of way.
