The Top Ten

Through the Fire and Flames
Best one. I don't know why people are hating this song in comments below.
A very nice song its very hard to play it on expert on gh
I cramped my finger twice playing that, what else can I say...
Dragonforce shows it's difference with this song.

2Fury of the Storm
2nd song ever! 1st is Through the Fire and Flames.
This is the song that inspired me to listen to DragonForce, great solos
Should be #1, great guitar and lyrics.
Fury of the storm has better soloes than any other Dragonforce song (except operation ground and pound and through the fire and flames
This was my second DragonForce song but I loved it just as much as Through the Fire and Flames maybe even more

3Valley of the Damned
Best dragonforce song if you ask me. the first one I knew, but still the greatest one :) great ending too :D
In my opinion the best song DragonForce has ever made. Yes Through the Fire and Flames is the most popular song DragonForce has and was made the band popular through Guitar Hero 3, (That was how I found this band) but other songs of theirs are even better in my opinion! Awesome ending too!

My point is if you are new to listening to DragonForce, try out some of their other songs before thinking Through the Fire and Flames is their best.

THIS IS JUST MY OPINION (You don't have to hate on me :D)
valley of the damned has the greatest ending to the song!
great job guys xD
This song is just beast

4Heroes of Our Time
It was so hard to choose, all their songs sound the same. I went with this one, though (a little better than the rest).


Awesome! This song reminds me in my childhood days with the super heroes.. haha laugh out loud! You should see their IMBALANCE video!
This song was very impressive. the guitar solo, the drums, specially Herman Li. He was insane. His finger was really insanely fast.

5Revolution Deathsquad
This song is so fast. It should be at the top of this list by far!


Comparing to other Dragonforce song, this really pumps me up..
And with the little breaks in the guitar and follow by a rage of power chords, just amazing, I always listen this song before a match, and then my win in nearly guaranteed.. Thanks Dragonforce
This is my number one favorite song of all time. There is just no question why this is up here. The first time I heard this song, the things immediately caught my ear, being the fifth Dragonforce song I'd heard by playing it on guitar hero. The first was SCREAMING. Then I heard the techno sounds and the "time to try and hold on", and finally that epic guitar sequence right after that awesome "heaviest riff ever" as guitar hero called it. This is without question the single best guitar sequence I have ever heard in my life. The entire rest of the song is epic, too.


How is this not on the Top? This was 100% good all the way, while through the fire and flames was good 100% at the middle of the song

6Operation Ground and Pound
Through the Fire and Flames+ Heroes of our Time= Operation Ground and Pound. One of my favorite songs ever. It just sounds so... Perfect. There really isn't any other word to describe it.
This is best than through the fire and flames (that is a bad song that is famous only for being the hardest song in guitar hero) this is 1.000.000... Times best than through the fire and flames


I love this song because its the toughest song in guitar hero 3. I bet if you could play it in the expert level...
God I love this song its one you can play on loop

7Where Dragons Rule
This is my sixth favorite Dragonforce song. This song is probably Dragonforce's most easily and dangerously catchy song. The lyrics are a piece of cake to remember, the transition from the slow and steady part to the fast and furious part is epic, and the guitar solo is awesome. All you need is Chuck Norris.


Awesome song, the vocals really take it up and beyond, too bad Zippy's gone :(
When it comes to dragonforce you either like their slow songs or their fast songs but this is the perfect mix and that s why it deserves a high spot. Where Dragons Rule is the ultimate show of the Creative power of DragonForce

8Soldiers of the Wasteland
At 9 minutes, with a 3 minute solo, it is truly epic. It should be .
This song is their very best song if you ask me.
I used to really dislike metal, but this song has really changed my mind. The first time I heard it I was convinced immediately.
What can anyone say but a damn good song. Keep it up. Look forward to the next album.

9Cry for Eternity
This is my third favorite Dragonforce song. This was actually a close call between this and "The Last Journey Home". In my opinion, the opening sequence wasn't epic enough. Actually, I used to have "Soldiers of the Wasteland" in this spot because of the middle part where it's slow and the guitar riffs are cool, but that rapidly went down the list once I came across this song, which had a much cooler guitar sequence in the middle, plus that wicked keyboard solo afterwards.


I don't know what to say... Let Me Tell you people has forgotten to listen songs
Why this song is so low in position... This song has everything what a metal song needs. What a solo. Keyboard work. Awesome Riff. So Vote for this song GUYS
I'd say that this is the best song in Dragonforce's arsenal. That solo at 5:21 (or thereabouts) melted my face off. The unsung hero of Inhuman Rampage...

10The Last Journey Home
One of the best solos of all time by far. This solo has immortalized dragonforce and they will be remembered 50 years hence to be the creator of what can be called, one of the best songs of metal. For now, this song is sadly underrated from being different from the usual super-fast beats. But that is what makes this stand out and it will become a legendary track no doubt.
This is a beast of a song. It doesn't follow the traditional stylization of their songs, with the first verse long with a second short verse then a bridge with a beastly solo. It has one long verse, then what feels like a REALLY long bridge leading into what is an amazing solo in my opinion. The vocal performance is very strong as well. Me gusta~.
This is my second favorite Dragonforce song. Now, I mentioned in Revolution Deathsquad how epic the guitar sequence was, but when it comes to epicness as a whole, this song takes the cake. It did take me a while to get the hang of this song, mainly because it never has the same lyrics until the end. In my opinion, what brings this song so high is that opening sequence. Now, normally I despise the overuse of techno sounds in music in general, which is why I really didn't gravitate toward E.P.M. But I do like it when they mix it in well enough with the rest of the actual music, and in that respect, the opening sequence of this song is my absolute favorite.

The Contenders

11My Spirit Will Go On

12Cry Thunder
This song is what truly made DragonForce known, the wicked guitars, vocals and fusion of sounds make it among their best works, I do t know how this got ranked 11th
My favorite in guitar flash (Facebook)..
A good song with an awesome song with Herman and Sam doing an insane solo

13Black Fire
This is my fifth favorite Dragonforce song. This song caught me by surprise. I first heard it in a remix of Dragonforce songs, so I looked the song itself up, and That WOAH! Part at the end of the song is so awesome and also sounds kind of sad, not that it made me cry, but just the way they use the key signature is just perfect, which may be a weird way to judge a song, but it just fits so perfectly with the lyrics that I just can't help it. I just love saying "Why can't you see what they're doing to me".

14Fields of Despair
This is my fourth favorite Dragonforce song. Probably Dragonforce's most underrated song. Maybe because the beginning takes off too suddenly, or maybe cause it's too sort. I don't know, but what I do know is that the main reason this song is so high is because of that beautiful, awesome, epic keyboard solo right in the middle that is just unparalleled in the known universe. Plus that Woah! Part at the end is my second favorite of Dragonforce's Woah! S.


WHAT is this song doing here at 36th?! Without a doubt, this song has the best intro, and by far the BEST chorus! Please, please give it a listen and then vote. I'm not asking you to raise it higher because I know it will automatically if you listen to it.
Best one... There aren't any word to describe it..
Maybe one...

Very great melody! Crazy solo bass and guitar

16Once In a Lifetime
Best song ever, the solo, lyrics are all outstanding to me along with 1 other within this album ZP done great with his work, to bad he quit :(
Listen to sample

17Disciples of Babylon
In my opinion, should be in the top 5, one of their most well written songs, if not the most well written
O.M.G that keyboard solo... VOTE FOR THIS ONE!
Listen to sample

18Dawn Over a New World
This song it´s more beautiful than Through the Fire and Flames.
This song is a reflection of a new world with harmony, glory and happiness, without wars and conflicts, especially the intro with acoustic guitar and the beautiful solo of Herman with Sam
This song is much better than Through the fire and flames. It has to be at least in the first five
This one is perfect! It's the shortest one they've ever written but has everything a great song should have... Dragonforce at their best!

19Heart of a Dragon
AWESOME! This is by far the best Chorus, it has a very familiar, yet catchy tune to it. Watch the YouTube video "Heart of a Z Fighter" if you are a DBZ fan!
Thought this might make the top 10, but oh well I guess my taste is unpopular.

20Heartbreak Armageddon
I love this song! I think its their best ever. It sounds so amazing. It's perfection.
Listen to sample

21Strike of the Ninja
This is my seventh favorite Dragonforce song. Another dangerously catchy song, and the shortest one, too. This one also has easy-to-remember lyrics and an awesome choir-like sound mixed greatly with that epic guitar sound. Really awesome song.


Why isn't this higher up? It's so good
Listen to sample

22Give Me the Night
Dark, aggressive and different, what else can I say?
Great song by DragonForce it has a great deal of emotion and flow. To me anyway its my 2nd favorite song 1st is through the fire and the flames and not because its on GH. (srry, I dislike GH, rockband, and all games like them)
Listen to sample

It's just wonderful! I love it!
Different from all the other songs of theirs!
Love the vocals, the guitar everything! Underrated!
Greatest DragonForce song ever, simply fantastic.
Just and absolutely beautiful song

24Prepare for War
I remember about 3 years ago making a metal playlist for dungeon siege and this song fitted perfectly with the battles and scenery and stuff. It's not my fave but it deserves some love
I love how the solo is seperated between the slow and fast parts by that small vocal section (tempo wise) and the chorus is so powerful it is hard not to love the song. Key change at the end is epic too.
really really spirit at solo!

27Scars of Yesterday
The first song I heard, simply the best one

28Trail of Broken Hearts
Trail of broken hearts... its an timeless song of mythologic love that have crossed time and spread beyond... it's a new window... it makes us feel, not getting what you want can be epic sometimes!
The song is pure beauty. Slow, soft unlike the other dragonforce songs but the solo is still comparable to others. Lyrics are just amazing and zp rocks too. I can't say this is the best song by DF but its different and something I'd like to listen to once in a while when I'm not in the mood of power metal.
Support me this should be placed in the top ten this song is better than those

29Storming the Burning Fields
This song is awesome not only is it super fast and not 7 minutes but amazing 4 minutes.
So unique and so fast.

From the album inhuman rampage after the songs through the fire and flames and revolution deathsquad.
The beginning of this song is great and awesome guitar solos
Listen to sample

Absolutely amazing song, I have heard every song they have created and it is hard to pick a favourite however I believe this is one of their most creative, catchy, fast, and brilliant songs.
Okay, their latest and best song, it's so epic they made a damn acoustic version for it, and it's rated 30? This is stupid as hell, this song is the best, I've heard all the ones on the top of this list and this one is still better, I'm sure everyone agrees
Really good Amazing has a good chorus and is catchy well done dragonforce

This is the first Dragonforce song I've ever heard. This song kicks ass! One of my favorite Dragonforce songs of all-time! Please vote.
This song is just simply amazing! The intro brings me back to the good ol gaming days which is their musical inspiration. Excellent song! Just plain EPIC!

33Heart of the Storm
Very very chingon, wey.

34Ring of Fire Listen to sample

This is my tenth favorite Dragonforce song. This one should pretty much be self explanatory. I know that everybody just can't get enough of “Hatred fills the Sky! ". And if that isn't enough, you also get to hear ZP go all out with his epic voice, along with some kick-*** guitar sequences.

39Fallen World
This was a hard choice, but I think Fallen World has a fresh, unique, and powerful story and melody. It's an enchanting song. The lyrics are some of the most meaningful to me. Hudson has an amazing voice!
I can't believe this is only no.24! This should be at least in the top 10, Marc Hudson sounds good, Herman and Sam have shown the speeds they can play on guitar, Dave has shown just how great he is at drumming, and Frédéric has done great on the bass as usual. Deserves to be higher imop
Their fastest song, and is accompanied with the band's most underrated album and what I consider to be the best.

40Wings of Liberty
This song shows more than any other one that DragonForce have grown up (musically). The solo part is just isane. Great songwriting and a very catchy chorus.
This song is amazing this definitely deserves to be in the top 10
The Best! I love it, my favourite!

42A Flame for Freedom

They made it different, and they made it well.

Best chorus and best solo of all time, by the way, Through the Fire and Flames is just the WORST dragonforce song

New album doesn't get the recognition it deserves my favorite album from them.
DragonForce's latest demo definitely takes the top for me. The chorus is unmissable.

49Tomorrow's Kings
New song, new album, new vocal style displayed. Awesome song with some of the greatest vocal not only from Marc, but dragonforce as a whole.

53The Warrior Inside
I do believe this song should have more recognition than it does now. I have not heard The Warrior Inside until recently, and let me be the first to say... I LOVE it. The chorus, the ending, even the intro just makes this a fantastic song.
Tribute to soliders and war vets. Touches my heart cause my family is military
I lime how it starts kinda like a video game, chip tune style.
