Watch DRAGONFORCE Perform On Water Slide And In Hot Tub Aboard 70000 TONS OF METAL Cruise
March 21, 2023
Can DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li and bassist Alicia Vigil play the band's classic song "Through The Fire And Flames" on the water slide and in the hot tub? Watch the video below to find out what happened on this year's edition of the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which sailed from Miami, Florida to Bimini, Bahamas and back from January 30 to February 3 on board the Freedom Of The Seas.
DRAGONFORCE singer Marc Hudson wasn't able to join his bandmates on this year's 70000 Tons Of Metal and was temporarily replaced by Alessio Garavello (A NEW TOMORROW, ex-POWER QUEST).
Back in 2018, Li performed a underwater guitar solo, while snorkeling, on the Full Metal Cruise VII.
Herman first performed an underwater solo on the 2015 iteration of the cruise, but he later explained that he "didn't play in the water long enough because there's only how much [time] I can hold my breath for."
Last November, DRAGONFORCE released a music video for the song "The Last Dragonborn". The track is taken from DRAGONFORCE's latest album, "Extreme Power Metal", which came out in September 2019. Produced in Los Angeles, California by Damien Rainaud at Mix Unlimited, the LP was also recorded, in part, on Li's livestream channel on Twitch with participation from the fans.
"The Last Dragonborn" is the first DRAGONFORCE music video to feature Vigil, who first joined the band as a touring member in January 2020.
DRAGONFORCE's platinum-selling single "Through The Fire And Flames" brought the London-based Grammy-nominated extreme power metal group international acclaim and was featured as the most challenging song on "Guitar Hero III".
In March 2019, the "Through The Fire And Flames" music video reached a new milestone: it surpassed one hundred million views on YouTube — DRAGONFORCE's first music video to do so.
"Through The Fire And Flames" is the leadoff track from 2006's "Inhuman Rampage" album, which was officially certified gold in July 2017 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of half a million copies.
In August 2019, DRAGONFORCE parted ways with longtime bassist Frédéric Leclercq. He has since joined German thrashers KREATOR.
