Dragonforce (Possibly) Parts Ways With Vocalist ZP Theart
Dragonforce won over the hearts of many a fan with its cheesy-but-fun mentality towards shred-heavy power metal. However, after awhile, every new album sort of blurred together with the old stuff.
Now the band is going through a big overhaul after the (rumored) loss of vocalist ZP Theart as read in a retracted Roadrunner press release. While I think Theart was a big influence on the band's sound, maybe this could be for the better?
I think Dragonforce could do with a little stylistic change... maybe even get a heavier vocalist perhaps? I'm not saying ditch the power metal vocals entirely, but someone who can mix-it-up a little.
And, hey, there's always Tim "Ripper" Owens.
