rock, classical, glam, black metal), multi-languages (speaks
French, English, German and some dirty words in almost

in the music scene.
Now, Fred adds another great band on his list: DragonForce. This talented, passionate young French man has known Herman from the 'force for over 5 years and was asked to help out on bass for their North America and Japan shows.
Fred displayed so much skills and professionalism on the shows in North America and Japan that he was asked to become DragonForce's permanent bassist. Fred accepted without hesitation.

ZP Theart / Vocal / since the beginning to March 2010
He was born in South africa.Without being able to say when exactly he started singing "Since I can remember I guess..." this curly haired frontman has been doing styles ranging from Blues, Thrash & Rock to Metal. Take this experience, plus an extremely high vocal range, combine it with an endless amount of energy, and you end up with: ZP Theart, the man upfront centre rocking the masses, flanked by a fierce instrummental attack and backed by a groinchurning rhythm section that is DRAGONFORCE! When there's time to spare, you'll occasionaly catch him messing around on the old 6-string accoustic, but he mostly devotes his time to writing lyrics and melodies. ZP has further built his experience being part of various projects on and off stage, as well as in the studio.
