Herman Li on “Doomsday Party” (feat. Elize Ryd):
“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 on 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 DragonForce’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!”
