Eternal Flight: Diminished Reality, Elegies and Mysteries

Remember France's Dream Child from the late Nineties, a band that enjoyed Metal Blade status at one point? No? Regardless, Dream Child's lead vocalist Gerard Fois now fronts Eternal Flight, another French metal band. Given his Bruce Dickinson tendencies, this band naturally sounds like an unpolished Iron Maiden. But there are plenty of other metal influences on the band's third album, Diminished Reality, Elegies and Mysteries or D.R.E.A.M.S., for short. Fans of traditional, power and progressive metal have plenty to dig into here, including the recurring theme of chasing your dreams. Such musical guests as drummer Ricardo Confessori (Angra, Shaman) and guitarist Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) ensure that the musical quality is kept intact.

Fois clearly helmed this project, writing all of the songs, singing lead vocals and playing acoustic guitars, bass and keyboards. He even created a mascot for Eternal Flight, whose significance is detailed in the booklet for Diminished Reality, Elegies and Mysteries. His singing voice also has lost some of the thick accent from 2007's Under the Sign of Will. The album is dedicated to such metal icons as Ronnie James Dio, Criss Oliva, Bon Scott, Dimebag Darrell and Midnight because "all these dreamers allowed us to enter their dreams and helped us realize ours." Fittingly, the album closes with a dense version of Dio's "Night People."
