WLM Reviews: Dreamfire – Atlantean Symphony

April 3, 2018

The phrase “Neoclassical Ambient Musical Art” may strike a chord with you…or several for that manner. This review is one of the most different reviews we’ve ever featured on this site and I’ll just tell you now that this album is more favorable towards the Symphonic side of metal. 

What makes this review so different, you’re probably wondering? Atlantean Symphony is the latest release from the project known as DreamfireOut of The UK, within this album, you’ll be greeted by 14 tracks that offer perilous journeys across an existence towards a plane of unrivaled merit. No, there’s no metal in this album for the magical essence the symphonies and ambiance illuminate will take you into the far reaches of realization. Like I said, the Symphonic community will probably be the ones who will enjoy this release the most. Or if you love cinematic scores and epic pieces of music harbored by other climactic and tender moments, by all means check this project out. With shows like Game of Thrones, Vikings, Outlander and movies like Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, among other fantasy type films, the chance of this kind of music being popular I would say is fairly decent. That should give you sort of an idea what this album is gearing towards.

The opener, Across The Ageless Oceanperfectly captivates what an entrance should sound like. Suspenseful parts overtake the senses in the form of cello, lots of cello and a slightly uplifting presence takes hold of this starter. If you’re like me, you’ll probably want to dive into A Reflection Of Rebirth Through The Eyes Of The Forlorn. The more melancholic foray accompanied by a more grim atmosphere will sway your dark intuitions into a more pleasurable fancy. The acoustic points and sound effects of nature, thunder and church bells tolling only add more uniqueness to captivate the listener. Into The Temple Of The Elementssurely brings it’s title to somewhat of a literal reality. Majority of the track is dominated by monklike chants that make the listener feel like in fact they are in a temple of some sort and some excellent atmospheric backgrounds to support the track fully to it end. You’ll also hear gongs hear and there with the track almost presenting a perfect moment for a meditative state of mind.

Tears Of The Enlightened 2may or may not put you to sleep mode. That’s not to say the track was boring, more in the fact that it’s tranquil atmosphere and piano go hand in hand. Through Fire Into Legend is where that Epic cinematic score comes in to fruition. The energy this one emits and it’s epic nature will appease those who seek such guidance. I couldn’t help but think that this would have been a perfect track for one of The Terminator films from years ago. Keeping in theme with the big screen, Game of Thrones came to mind when listening to another epic track titled, The Rains Of CastamereIt’s that moment you know, where something tragic happens, the suspense and shock grab hold and grasp your attention fully and you know you must exact revenge and strike back initially but soon thereafter the climactic portion ends and a more tender and frail territory take over in the final moments of the track.

Overall, the album will give you lots of temperaments to experience and above all else, ambiance galore to take you to a higher realm. You may dream with the band in a different way and visualize a story unfolding before you, but you may find yourself transported to another level of consciousness once you take on Atlantean SymphonyJust as the magical legend known as Atlantis and it’s mysteries that may or may not ever appear again, the prose and grandiose works brought on by Dreamfire will leave the listener in an everlasting ‘dream’. Stay Metal \m/
