Dragonforce have shared a video clip for their single, ‘Midnight Madness‘ off their latest album ‘Reaching Into Infinity,‘ which they brought to Australia back in June.

The video takes fans behind the scenes with the band when recording the album. Guitarist Herman Li explains:

Many fans have asked us over the years what’s it like working in the studio on an album. The music video from the latest song to be released from the ‘Reaching Into Infinity’ album – ‘Midnight Madness’, has the perfect vibe to take the fans behind the scene and see what we get up to!

Recording the bulk of the album at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden, with producer Jens Bogren, the band also laid down tracks while touring their ‘Killer Elite‘ best of album, utilising Lamerluser Studios, London UK. Dark Lane Studios, Witney, UK, as well as the bands own Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mézières, France and Shredforce One Studios, CA USA.

We were flying out, playing a festival, then back into the studio, then back out again. It was very intense and very tiring. I obviously played bass but also a lot of rhythm guitar, electric and acoustic, and lost my temper a few times – I think we all did at some point, because we wanted to deliver nothing but the best. I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music. It’s great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc’s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!

The first album to feature Gee Anzalone, the Italian drummer has laid down an insanely impressive performance to provide the perfect backbone to the Dragonforce sound, which of course still boasts the bands trademark crazy-fast solos, courtesy of guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman.

The title of the album explains pretty much what we are trying to do with our music. Today’s world is really crazy – there is fear of the future, uncertainty. But the power of music is infinite, and it can give strength and hope to people.
