Maybe you used to have DragonForce set as your ringtone in high school. Maybe you emphatically thrashed your long-haired head to one of the band’s tracks in your bedroom during your awkward teenage metal phase.

“Cry Thunder”

DragonForce
Roadrunner

Or maybe, like most people, you only know the London-based power metal group from the impossibly difficult song on Guitar Hero — the one your best friend claimed to be able to play on “hard” but could never actually prove.

Whatever your familiarity with the black denim-clad band, DragonForce is back and as electrifying as ever. The band’s newest single, “Cry Thunder,” packs as much fury as a raging thunderstorm itself — the song races with sinewy synth and guitar solos that never seem to tire, while still staying grounded with a firm, booming beat.

Pair that with larger-than-life lyrics that strike like lightening — “Cry thunder! / Sword in his hand / Titans of justice, fearless we stand” — and you have a heavy metal song of epic proportions.

“Cry Thunder” is surely worthy of an update to your ringtone.
