Dream Patrol is an international hard rock / classic rock band founded by Ronnie König (Signum Regis) in 2016. The band members are from USA, Slovakia, Austria and Czech Republic. Watch the video below where Ronnie answers the question why they started Dream Patrol.

A first single was released last month, check out the lyric video for ‘Dream Patrol’ below.

The inspiration for the band name comes from the 80s horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street, in which a demon-like creature would attack you while you were sleeping. With Dream Patrol you shall fear no more. It is a special office of combat against mind-invaders, working for you overtime, whenever you put on your headphones and start daydreaming.

king_of_persiaAfter an eight-year hiatus, Symphonity (previously known as Nemesis) made their comeback in 2016 with their second studio album, “King of Persia” which was released in Europe on 30th September and in the United States on the 18th November under the record label Limb music. The Czech Republic Epic power metal band has an impressive line-up, comprising of musicians from Czech, Slovakian and German nationalities. Their debut album “Voice from the Silence” won much praise from the metal audience and landed them quite a few tours. Building up on their previous fame the band has emerged back from the ashes and with a promising start and introduce us to the album with the eponymous track “King of Persia”.

Having two male vocalists, Olaf Hayer and Herbie Langhans, both juggling and leading the sound for the album, have done a tremendous job, which isn’t a common trait that any power metal bands exhibits. The album relies little on symphonic melody and heavily on pelting guitar riffs, thanks to Libor Křivák the sound changes from a core melodic to more guitar oriented and power driven. The drums and bass go hand in hand forming a solid foundation for all the songs. I would be happy pointing out that at certain instances the guitar work and the vocals felt inspired by Iron maiden.

Symphonity_band_1d5The Czech Republic has until now never been a shining light on the international Heavy Metal scene. Now and again a band would appear but then disappear again shortly afterwards. That, however, does not apply to Symphonity, a union of talented Czech, Slovakian and German musicians who have just recorded their third album, “King Of Persia”. The band can be classified in the classical-symphonic genre, plays at a very high international standard and easily keeps pace with established bands such as Stratovarius, Rhapsody, Dionysus, Thunderstone and Sonata Arctica. Up-tempo hymns with high classical melodies, complex guitar parts played with virtuosity, unmistakeable vocals and memorable melodies are the characteristics of this, the band’s third album. Their previous work, “Voice from the Silence” had already impressed both the press and fans and came highly recommended listening. 2016 is sure to be a successful year for Symphonity.

“King Of Persia” contains all the ingredients that fans of Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Rhapsody and Thunderstone expect from a high quality album: a build-up of broad choruses, voluminous melodies, galloping guitar attacks as well as neo-progged 6-string inserts. Add to that the vocals, which will send shivers down the spine of voice freaks. ‘In The Name Of God’ with its classical guitar tracks will get the headbangers active and the melodies are irresistable and simply force you to sing along with them.
