It came as somewhat of a surprise when Dragonforce announced that they were signing with Metal Blade Records earlier this year after a trio of albums on Roadrunner. Now, with their first album for the label, Maximum Overload, coming out on August 19th, the band have unveiled a video fro the album’s first single, “The Game.” It’s one of several songs on the album to feature Trivium’s Matt Heafy. While it’s still shreddy power metal, Heafy’s voice makes the song sound a little less Dragonforce-y. Fans of the band will love it, and some Trivium fans will undoubtedly come along for the ride as well.
Maximum Overload will be out in North America on Metal Blade on August 19th, and on Ear Music a day earlier in the UK.
