Hailing from Austin, Texas, a duo DREAMING MADMEN were founded by Lebanese-American brothers Mathew & Christopher ABOUJAOUDE (they say in their website as follows: "Born and raised in Lebanon, the duo began their musical journeys at young ages, 7 & 9, respectively and have been playing together ever since. Their careers took a professional turn when they formed Pink Floyd tribute 'Brick Floyd' with their father. They toured from 2014-2017 in the Middle East and in the USA, the 3 hour show completely synced to a psychedelic laser-lightshow.") as a rock project inspired by authentic progressive rock scene. "Ashes Of A Diary" was released in September 2019 as their debut full-length creation.

Review by Windhawk

4 stars US based band DREAMING MADMEN was officially formed back by the Aboujaoude brothers fairly recently. Presumably as a side project needed for them to use their creative impulses to write and perform their own material, as that aspect of a musician's life is more limited in their main band Brick Floyd. "Ashes of a Diary" is their debut album, and was released in the early fall of 2019.

Dreaming Madmen takes a natural step outwards from their main band Brick Floyd to create a debut album made very much in the mould of Gilmour-era Pink Floyd. The moods, atmospheres, key arrangements and song structures all reference back to later day Pink Floyd. That being said, the band manages to expand their palette a bit beyond this as well, and while the music may not be all that original it is well made and executed. As such, this is a production that merits a check by those who love and treasure the sound of Gilmour era Pink Floyd as well as the bands exploring similar territories.
