Rooms of Revelation
Style: Melodic Progressive Metal
Release date: April 17th 2010

Let me introduce you to something quite different: Melodic Progressive Metal from Hungary. Dreyelands is only the second progressive metal band from that part of the world I stumble across, Age of Nemesis being the other.

So are we dealing with another Eastern Europe phenomenon like Riverside here? No not quite, no yet anyway. 'Rooms of Revelation' is clearly a very good debut album, and a good stepping stone for this up and coming band. Their epic concept album tells the story of a man with a split personality that looses all his love to a killer, who turns out to be his own dark side.

Tying it all together is a natural and modern production with plenty of room for lighter as well as darker and heavier parts. 'Rooms of Revelation' shows a talented band that just like Seventh Wonder (a sadly much over-looked band) likes to create suspense and atmosphere in the songs to fit the storyline.

Dreyelands has created a fine album that shows promise and it has the quality to stand the test of most.
