Prog Reviewer
4 stars Factory of Dreams play a spacey, evocative style of symphonic metal which reminds me at points of Sham Mirrors-era Arcturus with the black metal and industrial influences smoothed over. In their place are evocative, atmospheric gothic motifs and influences, giving the band a unique voice. Speaking of voices, lead vocalist Jessica Lehto is accompanied by no less than three narrators this time around, but actually the narration is used very carefully, the band making sure that it never upstages the music or waffles on for too long. The album's cyber-goth atmosphere nicely suits the narrative (something about a girl called Kyra who's the chosen one), but really the story isn't what stands out here - it's the intense and carefully crafted sound of Factory of Dreams themselves. The duo of Lehto and Flores just might have elevated themselves to the big leagues with this one.
Warthur | 4/5 |
