Nordream / No.r.Dream biography
Back in 1993 NORDREAM consisted of just two metalheads trying to play their own tunes at all kinds of rehearsal places in Moscow. Rouben Kazariyan handled guitars and Stas Kulikov sat on drumthrone. A couple of tapes were done down in Moscow State University basement rehearsal room. That was not just experiencing with various styles but rather working out few licks copied a day before from a favourite band's latest CD. Still those coupla riffs things are quite found on the debut album.

Then a quite long study trip to Korea suspended further musical plans but only for the time being. There was just one exception to that. On the 8th of October 1995 the guys went on-stage and played a microset of three Korean songs. Regretfully no audio evidence remained and there's just a few photo which were shot during that gig Right upon the return the material gathered during last few years was resorted and arranged to be performed with more than just two men.

1997 - the break-through year - was the real date when the band started off. First there were four members and then a complete five piece NORDREAM went onstage in summer 1998 opening END ZONE's new album presentation. Before that first real-ND gig there were lots and lots of mistakes, trial and error and the stuff everyone seems to get through if he's in that sort of biz. First live-gig resulted in quick line-up changes which did not affect the bands further live playing activity. Up to the end of 1998 Nordream was among the most frequent live bands in Moscow.

In 1998 the band entered ARIA Records studio to put on tape the most confident and up-to-date work of NORDREAM. One song recording session was too much an experience needed to get the taste of what was to come- the album! Aria Records is actually not a studio for making demos. Guys were doing real song and the quality says for itself. That was a challenge and it was accepted.

1999 - the wait year. All gigs even scheduled were canceled and the band went home - PCs, cubase software, home rehearsals, rearrangements, thinking over. Fake musicians were forced to leave and just the core members left to finish what had been supposed to all those years- the debut album. Probably this was the period when songs underwent the most drastic arrangement changes.

Entitled Memories Progression it reflected the evolution of the band's vision of its activities through all the past years. Autumn '99 was totally dedicated to recording the album...

3 stars Nordream, this obscure and totaly unknown to larger public prog metal band, coming from Moscow - Russia, born around 1998 and releasing only one album in 2000 named Memorioes progression. Well, not much is known about this band, the music offered here is close to DT, the instrumental sections are quite good, specially the keyboards provided by female keybordist Julia Chistyakova. As many bands from east Europe and aswell from Russia, the band suffer from not so good production and overall sound, I met this type of sound on countless bands from my country, with thin sound and low production. Anyway the music is most of the time ok, no really lows here abut aswell no highlights. The voice is almost mediocre and drag the album little low as a whole. All in all, I don't think this band will have many listners, but if you are a prog metal fan as I am I think worth a spin. Very nice art work and booklet. 3 stars, good but far from great

Thanks to CCVP for the artist addition.
