I’m listening to Maximum Overload and for the past three songs my thought process has been “alright THIS is my favorite song on the album” and then the next song happens and I can’t even stand it they are all so good.
I like every single song on this album. Every. Single. Song.
"Fear not a twisted future, no matter what it brings
Can’t you see now, you’re all tomorrow’s kings
— DragonForce, “Tomorrow’s Kings”
"I was recording the solos to the song “Three Hammers.” In one of the solos, I was using the Whammy effect pedal, which bends the pitch of the notes really high. So I did a bunch of takes, which I thought were equally as good as the others, and couldn’t decide which one to use. My dog loves high-pitched guitar sounds and always does a cute face when she hears it. I basically played all the takes to my dog to see which one made her do the cutest face to make the cut. Yeah, my dog picked the solo to be on the album!"
— Herman Li
Oh by the way I’m reading DragonForce interviews and Herman Li is flawless and sorry not sorry about the quotes I will be posting.
"I think that hard work is better than talent, absolutely. Talent, I think, can make you lazy, because you learn really quickly. I feel like…I always say that I’m not that great a guitar player, anyone can do this if they spend the time on it. To be honest, I think anyone can do pretty much anything these days – with the knowledge, the information that’s out there on the internet, you don’t have to rely on people for a lot of things any more. In everything from martial arts to cooking, I’ve learned that it’s better when you don’t have to rely on someone else – you can find that knowledge and deal with the problem yourself."
— Herman Li is a flawless human being who believes the only way to fully live life is to learn as much as you can and master as much as you can and I love him for it.
"You’ve got to remember that we live to do things. If you can turn something you do to relax or for enjoyment into something where you learn or improve…that’s key, that’s kind of the way I see the whole thing."
— Herman Li for LiveHard.co.uk on his multiple projects and talents
