There is no doubt that Herman Li of Dragonforce is one of the most gifted guitar players on the planet, and he along with Sam Totman are the driving force behind Dragonforce‘s massive and crazy sound. The band that was put in the spotlight with the single Through the Fire and Flames almost 10 years ago as part of the widely popular Guitar Hero III video game has become an important player in the power metal scene ever since. With Dragonforce touring around the world several times and participating in several summer festivals in Europe every year.
Dragonforce latest album Killer Elite which is a compilation of the band’s best of songs was received with fairly good acceptance among fans and media, but recently the band announced that is putting the final touches to their upcoming new album Reaching Into Infinity which is planned to be released in May of this year.
While at NAMM 2017, we had the chance to talk with Herman Li of Dragonforce about his new Ibanez signature guitars Egen 18 and Egen 8 which were part of the Ibanez booth this year.
