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.
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.
