What do DragonForce and DonkeyBox have in common?

DragonForce and DonkeyBox make DragonBox

The shred machines of DragonForce and DonkeyBox

Besides the weird names which involve an animal and the even weirder reason for name capitalisation, these two bands have more in common than you would think!

Yes they are both rock bands, yes they are loud..but the bands have almost crossed paths once on the same stage believe it or not.

It was the summer of 2001 when lead guitarist and drummer from DonkeyBox popped into the Imperial College Jemfest and on that small stage there was this guitarist dude who was playing some mildmelting guitar solos on his Ibanez guitar.

It was all about the Ibanez guitars that little event and those guys at the end seemed the perfect headline act.

Fast forward about 3 years and omg these guys have changed name slightly to DragonForce and a force to be reckoned with, they have made it in mainstream rock music!

On that night we did not gig with DragonForce, we hadn’t been formed and they had only just started out. The organiser of the Jemfest had his own band on stage as well, Cereal Killer. About a year later when DonkeyBox formed we finally gigged with Cereal Killer as well. This way we had gigged with a band that had gigged with DragonForce.

The small world of rock n roll that we live in.
