4.0 out of 5 stars More symphonic goth-rock bombast!, 19 July 2011
This review is from: Melotronical (Audio CD)
In "Melotronical", Factory of Dreams have served up a follow up to "A Strange Utopia" that is sonically very similar.

Anyone being led by the title and expecting a feast of music featuring the mellotron will be sorely disappointed! There are keyboards aplenty, of course, but the soundscape is much heavier than one would normally associate the use of that instrument. Instead, multi-instrumentalist Hugo Flores and vocalist Jessica Lehto - for that is who Factory of Dreams are - serve up another fest of symphonic goth-metal fusion. There are few quiet moments, the emphasis is on bombast: at times the keyboard layering and machine-gun drumming becomes extraordinarily intense.

It is a soundscape that has a certain appeal, and fans of the band will not be disappointed, but more general listeners are advised to listen to samples before splashing out their money. Personally, I find this onslaught style slightly overawing over the length of time of a modern CD. The previous album, "A Strange Utopia" had perhaps the better balance musically, or perhaps I just need to listen to "Melotronical" more...but I do have to be in the right mood for its intensity!
