This version will be included as a bonus track on some editions of DRAGONFORCE’s highly anticipated upcoming album “Warp Speed Warriors”, out on March 15, 2024 via Napalm Records.
On ‘Doomsday Party’, 80s rock influences meet captivating retro video game soundscapes and epic guitar solos in true DRAGONFORCE manner, and the original version of the track has already reached over half a million Spotify streams. Elize Ryd’s stunning vocal performance gives the song a new edge.
DRAGONFORCE is preparing for their epic European co-headline tour with Amaranthe and special guests Infected Rain. Kicking off in February 2024 in Hamburg, the tour is selling out fast with shows already sold out months in advance.
Herman Li commented about the single: “I’ve been a big fan of Amaranthe since their DEMO release. After our mini collab on my Twitch livestream to produce the track ‘Cyber Sausage Fest’, we were thrilled when Elize was able to create this special duet version of the song with DragonForce. I just love listening to her incredible singing, and Elize’s power dynamic performance on ‘Doomsday Party’ is pure eargasm. I am sure both DragonForce and Amaranthe fans will adore this version of the song too. I’m eagerly anticipating sharing the stage together on our upcoming European co-headline tour!”
Elize Ryd comments about the collaboration: “One of the most crazy and fun collaborations since the ‘Cyber Sausage Fest’ song. What a banger ‘Doomsday Party’ is! This song makes every cell in my body hyped, that’s what I love about DragonForce’s music. I was extremely happy when I received the request to join in on this track. The vocal recording took place in Stockholm with Jona Tee from H.E.A.T.
Finally, I wanna say that it is a huge honor for me to officially take part in the band’s history. Thank you so much for having me. It was incredibly fun to tour with you in the USA and Canada. Can’t wait to see you again on Tour in the UK and Europe!”
