Over the years, I have, on occasion fall out of love with Rock/Metal music, for various reasons, but it would be someone I know who or a radio station’s recommendation that will spark my interest back in Rock/Metal, as there will be a new band or a new song from an existing band that has come out, and those people are very excited about it. It was July of last year that I got back into Rock/Metal after a hiatus of 2 years, when I heard a couple of new bands that got some air play on the radio. So by October I decided to start Project Metal Music after I watch a hell of a lot of music videos on YouTube, thats when I started to do reviews of bands albums and E.P.s.
When DREAM STATE followed me on Twitter the other day, I had to check them out, they are from Swansea, Wales, and they are a rock, alternative rock, post-hardcore, post-metal, post-punk, post-rock, and they have a similar sound to Emarosa and A Day To Remember.
Their First track off the Consequences E.P. is Burden and it starts off really well with some pretty nifty screaming guitars and they continue throughout the song, Charlotte’s vocals on this track are well suited for this, as they fit in pretty well.
Burn Them Down is the next track and it follows on from Burden with the guitars, the drumming is exquisite as they drive the song along, plus on this track there is some sweet screams to accompany Charlotte’s vocals. If you like A Day To Remember you would love this track and band.
Try Again. From the off there is a pretty awesome guitar solo, which opens up the the track, as I am listening to this track I am starting to really like Charlotte’s voice, as she has that rawness that I like, and I can see this band going far.
Relentless is the next song. I am not that much of a fan of Screamo, but I do like this track and if you like Screamo you would love this track, they have some pretty good guitars and drumming on this track, and coupled that with Charlotte’s screamo style of vocals this is a really good song
Rebuild, Recreate starts off with some acoustic guitar, which sets up the track, for some brutal guitars, drums and vocals, this is song is one of my favourite tracks by DREAM STATE, as it has some brilliant riffing and shredding on the track.
If you want to listen to something new in the Rock/Metal scene go check out DREAM STATE, you’ll not be disappoint with these. You can download their stuff on Bandcamp click here to get the Consequences E.P. And they are on Facebook click here to stay up to date.
I have given this band a good listen to and I have come to the conclusion that I can see this band going place, as they have some awesome talent.
I would give DREAM STATE a 4 out of 5, I do want to see them live in person if they tour. Plus I want to hear more from them, as they have piqued my interest in them by listening to this E.P.
