What can I say? I discovered this band on MySpace first and since then I kept following them, I like very much Jessica' voice, she's a true professional, also Hugo Flores is great on guitars and whatever else he does too!

Now I can't claim to be familiar with the work of Sonic Pulsar, from whence Portugal's Hugo Flores sprang, but with the quality control that's been in evidence at ProgRock records of late, I chucked this in the CD player with alacrity. And it's another goodie.

Apparently, Factory Of Dreams is meant to be a more song-based alternative to his Project Creation, um, project, and it's certainly a feast of melody. It broadly fits into the broad church of female fronted gothic metal, fronted, as it is, by the Swedish soprano Jessica Lehto. However, it's definitely on the melodic side of metal, so don't come here looking for riffs.

There is a thread to the music, although Flores is fighting shy of calling it a concept, whereby a distant planet comprises two lands called Poles, separated by a river, and by "positiveness and negativeness". So a good old fashioned story of good and evil. Excellent.

As a two person project, it also gives Flores the chance to show off his multi-instrumental prowess, although it's his guitar work that remains most impressive. Check out album highlights 'Electric Boom' and 'Air Powerplant' for some prime examples. There are also moments of great delicacy which showcase the fine voice of Lehto, as well as nods to symphonic and progressive metal, especially on the keyboard dominated tracks.

The folks who follow Tarja and Liv Kristine will find a great deal to enjoy here, and as one of them, I can heartily recommend this offering.
