Dreamtone: Unforeseen Reflections

Call me crazy, but if Robert Smith of The Cure fronted a metal band, I think it would probably sound something like Dreamtone. With Unforeseen Reflections, these five young Turks, led by inaudible yelper Oganalp Canatan (who's also got a few thrash growls in him), have crafted a progressive-metal album rich in Symphony X and Angra influences, but also layered with morose, Cure-like lyrics: "Born with a nave heart/Watch as it turns into dark/Believe in your truths as you both die/This life paints you black," from "Roots." Classy orchestral arrangements on a handful of songs ("Pre-arranged Overture" and "Thus It Ends in Misery"), along with some crackin' instrumentals ("War of the Worlds" and "Circus of Circumstances") are impressive, but Canatan's acquired-taste voice eventually makes Dreamtone more endearing. The press info that arrived with our copy of Unforeseen Reflections indicates this is only a demo. Wow! Sonically, musically and graphically, Dreamtone are a cut above most of the demos we receive. Here's hoping the right ears hear this disc and sign these guys. As for me, Unforeseen Reflections grew on me -- by album's end, I wanted to hear it again.
