Dragonforce will release its first ever full-length live DVD this summer. And in anticipation of its release, the band is holding a special contest for fans.

Dragonforce will release its first-ever full-length live recording this summer. The band will release In The Line of Fire on Tuesday, July 14th through its label Metal Blade Records. It will be available on Blu-ray and 2DVD/CD combo pack. The footage for the recording was shot during the band’s Ultimate Stage headline show at the 2014 Loud Park Festival in the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan. One of the songs included on the band’s upcoming recording is the hit song ‘Three Hammers.’ Audiences can check out that performance online now via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIv3cmvZRTI. When asked why the band waited until this point to release its first live recording, guitarist Herman Li responded, explaning that the band didn’t just want to toss out some random, tossed-together recording. The band wanted it done “right” as Li noted. He went on to explain that the band felt that it had enough material at that point to put out a recording that really represented the band in terms of its body of work. “We always held the opinion that if we ever did a DVD we wanted to do it properly,” he said. Now, having released six studio albums we thought we had a great cross section of material to pick from and we knew the facilities at Loud Park made it a great place to film a show. Everything just came together and we’re very pleased with the results and hope the fans will be also”.

In celebration of the DVD’s upcoming release, the band has teamed up with its label and Revolver magazine to win a mega-prize pack of swag from Dragonforce, Ibanez, Metal Blade Records, and Razer. The prize pack includes: a signed, stage-played Ibanez guitar from Herman Li, a signed drum head, t-shirts, One (1) pair of Razer Kraken Forged headphones, Razer keyboards and more. Fans can enter the contest now online at http://www.revolvermag.com/news/enter-to-win-the-ultimate-dragonforce-prize-pack.html.

Dragonforce is currently touring in support of its latest full-length album Maximum Overload, its sixth full-length recording. The band is currently scheduled to perform live this Tuesday, February 17th in Christchurch, New Zealand.
