Dreyelands are a melodic progressive metal
band from Hungary. Their debut album ‘Rooms Of Revelation’ showcases the
bands versatile attitude for music being a
tasty mixture of the metallic and the
melodic side of progressive and power metal,
combined with a touch of 80s AOR/hard rock
The songs are powered
by heavy guitar riffs fused with ultra
melodic, memorable vocal themes along with
clever arrangements. Sonically the album is
big, modern and natural with no triggers on
the drums and live string arrangements etc.
The first half of the album has the lighter
songs and as the listener gets nearer to the
end they are increasingly heavier and
depicts a journey in a schizophrenic mind. The
story is about a man that is loosing all his
loves and at the end, his life as well. Our
protagonist has a cruel fate: every woman,
he is conceiving passion for, are
disappearing after the first fulfilment of
their love. Haunted by the pain of loss, he
begins a journey in an imaginary house,
where he finds more and more clues about
what happened to his subjects of love. It
turns out that all his loves were killed.
Progressing with the
story, we will realize that the killer is
the dark side of his split personality,
brought to life by the protagonist itself.
Being always afraid that the first heavenly
flames are dying out, this killer is his
remedy for the fear of what will come after
the first fulfilment of love. As the journey
continues, the killer is coming more and
more to the fore, to make the decision to
die together in the last song.
After forming in 2003
Dreyelands recorded their first release, a
promotional EP titled ‘Can’t Hide Away’
(released in 2007). There was also a music
video made for the title song of the EP.
This video was featured several times on the
Headbanger’s Ball program of MTV Hungary
with the EP receiving great feedback from
not only Hungarian but also international
During 2007 the band
finished the song writing for the debut
album ‘Rooms of Revelation’ which was
recorded in several studios in Hungary and
Serbia in 2008 and mixed/mastered by well
known Hungarian producer / engineer Barnabás
Hidasi at HL-Studio in 2009. After the
recordings keyboardist Zoltán Kas left the
band. For future promotion work and live
gigs the band is completed by György Nagy
(Age of Nemesis) as a session member.
After hearing the
band Lion Music was blown away with the
quality of material on offer and a deal was
finalised in September 2009.
Dreyelands serve up a
fresh yet classic sound in the melodic
progressive metal genre and ‘Rooms Of
Revelation’ opens its doors to the
