Hear DRAGONFORCE's High-Speed Cover Version Of CELINE DION's 'My Heart Will Go On'

Audio samples of all the tracks that will appear on DRAGONFORCE's eighth full-length album, "Extreme Power Metal", can be streamed below. Due on on September 27, the CD was produced in Los Angeles, California by Damien Rainaud at Mix Unlimited and was also recorded, in part, on guitarist Herman Li's livestream channel on Twitch with participation from the fans.

"Extreme Power Metal" includes a full-speed cover version of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On", which was the theme to the most romantic scene in the movie "Titanic". Li told Dead Press! about DRAGONFORCE's decision to record the track: "It was about making an epic song on every DRAGONFORCE album, and it fits in well with the whole theme of the album and the fun artwork and just having fun with it. It's really catchy and people like it."

01. Highway To Oblivion
02. Cosmic Power Of The Infinite Shred Machine
03. The Last Dragonborn
04. Heart Demolition
05. Troopers Of The Stars
06. Razorblade Meltdown
07. Strangers
08. In A Skyforged Dream
09. Remembrance Day
10. My Heart Will Go On

Regarding "Extreme Power Metal", Li said: "This album again combines the best of DRAGONFORCE in an even bigger, more epic way than we have ever done before. We are so excited for fans to hear it." Following the departure of Vadim Pruzhanov from the band last year, the keyboards of this new album were performed by Coen Janssen of symphonic metal titan EPICA, bringing a new dimension into a DRAGONFORCE album. Guitarist Sam Totman says: "We worked really closely with Coen on this new album. We are so happy with what he has brought into this new album. Every fan will be so happy to hear his majestic playing."

On September 27, DRAGONFORCE will perform at TwitchCon 2019 in San Diego, California during the opening ceremony at the Glitch Theatre, to celebrate the launch of "Extreme Power Metal". In addition to the live audience of thousands, this performance will be streamed live on Twitch.

DRAGONFORCE recently parted ways with longtime bassist Frédéric Leclercq.

Leclercq, who became an official member of DRAGONFORCE in 2006, played his last show with the band in August at Elb-Riot in Hamburg, Germany.

Filling in on bass for the U.S. leg of DRAGONFORCE's upcoming world tour will be musician and YouTube personality Stevie T (Steve Terreberry).
