Dream Evil  


Dream Evil is the brainchild of noted producer and studio man Fredrik Nordström, who apparently decided after producing all sorts of quality metal bands that he could play as well as any of them. He assembled a quality lineup including drummer Snowy Shaw, who seemingly has played with every Scandinavian band under the sun, and has to date produced four albums. If ever there was an album that defined traditional 80's melodic power metal (in a good way, not in a tired, been-there-done-that way), this is it. There's little here that is truly original or particularly contemporary, but all the pieces fit perfectly, from a flawless production to the powerful but never wailing vocals of Niklas Isfeldt, to the crunchy, tasteful guitarwork of Nordström and Greek guitar phenom Gus G., to the straightforward yet well-crafted songwriting. There's a bit of early Europe here, a touch of a less over-the-top HammerFall, plus any number of classic 80's influences like Dio and Helloween. Even in a very crowded Euro power metal field, Dream Evil stands tall and proud, very recommended for 80's metal purists.
