Remnants Of A Dream

Rated 2/5 (40%) (1 Vote)

This one doesn't really instill a lot of joy in me, I'm generally sick of the whole symphonic/gothic metal shebang, although in fairness to the band I'll keep it out of the review. The main niggle is unsurprisingly the vocals which sound off key and in certain places they verge on shredding my eardrums, it's not nice to listen to, and it's a shame as the music underneath is actually pretty good.

The riffs are for the most part well done, and make a change from the one-dimensional norm of gothic metal acts. The band are genuinely quite talented with the exception of the singer, with some cool guitar and keyboard solos throughout, although the keyboard effect for its solos are kind of goofy (proper seventies laser sound effects). There isn't a whole load left to say about Remnants Of A Dream as the vocals give me a bit of a headache. People who like this operatic style of singing will definitely find something to enjoy here, anyone else can happily give this one a miss...
