Dreamaker: Human Device

The 2004 debut release of the power metal band Dreamaker which included three ex-Dark Moor members' , vocalist Elisa Martin, drummer Jorge Saez and guitarist Albert Maroto, was called Human Device.

Overall this album is also better than the one which Dreamaker would follow it up with in 2005 titled Enclosed. Enclosed did have some very good songs "I Live My Own Life" rocks as the opener but that album just doesn't match up with their debut. Enclosed sounded like Dreamaker were getting heavier trying to distance themselves more from the styles they were formerly known for, and while it doesn't quite work Enclosed is still worth hearing. Also it's not that costly to pick up their whole discography anyway, as there have been no further Dreamaker releases since from what I can tell. While the band they departed continues to regularly release appealing albums.

You soon realize even though Dreamaker's music does have an atmospheric feel at times, Human Device lacks that epic/orchestral nature of the Dark Moor albums they had participated in, which is a good thing as why would you want to start another band that sounds the same? It makes better sense to establish your own sound than get hammered for copying what's been done so well before. Elisa Martin is one of the more able female metal vocalists she also sang for the popular epic metal group Fairyland, and she is backed by an skilled group of musicians together creating a debut that showed a band with much potential. I have listened to Human Device many times and thanks to the variety on offer, and songs like "Alone Again", I will surely keep going back for more.
