On May 19, DragonForce will release their new album Reaching Into Infinity via Metal Blade Records. The effort was tracked at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren (Sepultura, Opeth). Additional sessions took place at Lamerluser Studios in London, UK, Dark Lane Studios in Witney, UK, Evil1 Studios in Charleville-Mezieres, France and Shredforce One Studios in California.

Bassist Frederic Leclercq said of the recording process: “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.”

He added: “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!”

As for the title, Leclercq adds about the title: “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.”
