Power metallers DragonForce have released an official video for their cover version of Taylor Swift’s ‘Wildest Dreams’ (Watch Below) included as a bonus track on some editions of their upcoming album “Warp Speed Warriors.”

Dragonforce New Album

The album is scheduled for release on March 15th through Napalm Records. In this rendition, DragonForce reimagines Swift’s song within the power metal genre, featuring rapid guitar solos and high-pitched vocals. The band’s adaptation first gained attention during their recent North American tour, prompting discussion in the media and on social media platforms.

Founded in 1999 by guitarists Herman Li, also known for his Twitch channel, and Sam Totman, DragonForce’s “Warp Speed Warriors” represents an exploration of various musical styles while staying anchored in their power metal roots. The band is preparing for a European co-headlining tour with Amaranthe, beginning in Hamburg, with Infected Rain acting as special guests. The tour includes several UK dates, with some shows already sold out and others nearing full capacity.

Regarding the new album, Herman Li commented:
