Hall of Metal published a new interview with Factory of Dreams' Hugo Flores, both in English and Spanish.
To complete the article a review was also written (8.7/10), covering the new A Strange Utopia album.

A few snippets:

'HoM: In the previous effort you offered us a concept album about that “factory of dreams” that your name refers to. What is “A Strange Utopia” about?

A Strange Utopia is a collection of bizarre worlds that live inside my head, or maybe just decided to pop out as I was writing the music. Call them Utopias, or visual scifi-ish ideas...

'HoM: One of the things I would remark about your sound is the majesty with which you perform your rich compositions. How long does it usually take you to write and compose a track? And most important, do you feel capable of exceeding yourself again? You are reaching quite a high level…

...I think I’ll be evolving constantly, even though sometimes one must try to be as open as possible to raw ideas and the original roots....everything is raw by then, more honest. But evolving in terms of expertise in mixing and structuring is always good. Evolving may also imply a change of direction, like it happened with Factory of Dreams'


Also, FoD's Lastfm page's been revamped and now our new album is available:

Reverb is also updated:

For those interested, another interview is published on Rock Realms:


"Strong stuff, and a welcome gem here in the final days of 2009!" - in SeaofTranquility
"brilliant song craftsmanship. For her part, Jessica Lehto delivers her vocals with the usual passion..." -in Dangerdog
'a memorable opus. ' - in FemmeMetal
