DRAGONFORCE To Play Swedish Festival Without Guitarist HERMAN LI

London-based "extreme power metal" band DRAGONFORCE will perform without their guitarist Herman Li at this year's Gates of Metal festival, set to be held Saturday (July 31) in Hultsfred, Sweden.

"Unfortunately, DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li has missed his flight to the Gates of Metal show in Sweden!" reads a posting on the group's web site. "All other flights from London are fully booked, there is no way Herman can get to the show on time. The band will still play the show with only Sam [Totman] on guitar."

DRAGONFORCE's sophomore album, "Sonic Firestorm" was released in April through Noise Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Valley Of The Damned" was recorded primarily at Thin Ice Studios, Virginia Water, Surrey, England with producer Karl Groom. All guitars were recorded at guitarist Herman Li's own private studio in West London.
