DRAGONFORCE Covers Taylor Swift with “Wildest Dreams (DragonForce’s Version)” – New Video Out Now!

DRAGONFORCE has unveiled an official video for their excellent Taylor Swift cover, “Wildest Dreams (DragonForce’s Version)”, which is included as a bonus track on select editions of their anxiously anticipated upcoming album, Warp Speed Warriors, out on March 15, 2024 via Napalm Records! The Grammy-nominated unit has transformed the current reigning pop superstar’s huge hit into a lightning-fast power metal anthem, featuring incredible guitar solos and sky-high vocals. DRAGONFORCE’s version first caused a wave of buzz in the press and on social media after the band performed it live on their most recent North American tour.
 
Founded in 1999 by virtuoso guitarists Herman Li (also known for his Twitch channel with 270k followers) and Sam Totman, the new masterpiece Warp Speed Warriors sees DRAGONFORCE experimenting with different genres more than ever before, while staying true to their power metal roots. DRAGONFORCE will kick off their European co-headline tour with Amaranthe in Hamburg next week, with label mates INFECTED RAIN supporting as special guests – so make sure to grab your tickets now and get a taste of what’s to come from the explosive video below!

Herman Li on Warp Speed Warriors:
“After four years of creative incubation, we are beyond excited to release what we believe to be our most ambitious and grandiose record yet. This album showcases multiple facets of our artistic abilities, and we invite metal aficionados from every corner of the genre to discover something captivating within its layers. We can’t wait to share this chapter of our musical journey with you, it’s going to be EPIC!”
 
Following the opening track “Astro Warrior Anthem”, the Zelda inspired track “Power of the Triforce” keeps the volume high before DRAGONFORCE temporarily slows it down for the ballad ”Kingdom of Steel”. Rapid drum patterns and thrilling guitars carry the catchy “Burning Heart”, while chanting “Space Marine Corp” features a strong and uplifting chorus. Electronic influences on grandiose power metal anthem “The Killer Queen”hypnotize, as singer Marc Hudson’s vocals reach for the skies. The last original track onWarp Speed Warriors“Pixel Prison”, is followed by DRAGONFORCE’s unexpected yet brilliant cover of Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” as a bonus track that wraps up the epic adventure as a bonus track on some formats.
 
Warp Speed Warriors was produced, mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud at Mix Unlimited in Los Angeles, California with Sam Totman and Herman Li. This album is a matchless, innovative listening experience that continues the band’s legacy with songs that will, without a shadow of a doubt, become instant classics in and beyond the DRAGONFORCE canon.
