I guess I'm going to get myself in trouble again. I suppose I'm the only one who remembers that near the end of the 80's, metal went into the crapper. Not only was it taken over by guys with too much makeup, it was filled with countless boring shredding for no good reason except to show off the guitarists skills. Now, Dragonforce is going to go one better by not only showing off some pointless soloing, but by doing it for a credit card company.

I really don't object to any band making a buck or increasing their popularity in any way, shape or form. It's hard to make ends meet out there. It's just this video reminds me of the pointless nature of some shredding.  Some of you will see this as awesome, I see it as kind of douchey.
