If you, like me, enjoy your thrash metal as cartoonishly over-the-top as possible then, my friend, have I got a deal for you: Through The Fire And The Flames, by DragonForce.

That’s right, they’re called “DragonForce”. And I swear to you that if that song does not have you throwing up the horns with both hands, there is not an ounce of Metal in you. None. The video is here, and it’s safe for work, but it definitely features a whole lot of guitar-face, so be warned. Depending on where you work, the video may be just too awesome.

    Sounds like REM on speed.

    I would totally throw up the horns for REM on speed.

    Have I linked you to Rhapsody before?

    Gotta love an italian power-metal band who made FOUR FUCKING ALBUMS (so far) with the story of their D&D game, with song titles like “Dargor, shadowloard of the black mountain”.

    I had a few good headbanging and horn upthrowing moments with a band called Early Man. It’s like a lost Black Sabbath album with a bit of Kill Em All-era Metallica thrown in.
