DragonForce guitarist Herman Li and new frontman Marc Hudson were interviewed by Crank It Up when they were in Sweden to promote their forthcoming fifth studio album, The Power Within. In the clip above, they discuss how Marc came to join the group, what his contributions to the writing were, how The Power Within differs from DragonForce's previous work (hint: quite a lot, actually), and more. Marc's comments about making his live debut with DragonForce opening for Iron Maiden in England, after playing to 50 people with his previous band, are particularly hilarious.
