Their entire album United is a middle finger to critics talking bad about their lyrics. Just about every song on it is intentionally written with horrible, terrible, embarrassing lyrics.

But no matter what, they cannot measure up to Star One, who has a song based on Star Trek IV. That's right, the one with the whales.

Wait, someone else who knows Dream Evil and listens to their music?
Unpossible! It's like barely anyone knows these guys, even though their music is awesome.

I have United, and enjoy it a lot. Hell, Book of Heavy Metal is in the same vein. I think they really do get off on playing with all these stereotypes.
It's really the funnest part about it all, that it's actually intentional.

Dream Evil - Into the Moonlight

When I used LiveJournal more frequently, I ran down the "interests" within the Power Metal Heads group and looked up every band listed. It was pretty decent, but I've discovered more bands since then thanks to random periods of using Pandora and Amazon MP3's recommendations.

Most recently I went into researching female fronted metal bands so I could get my sister some for Christmas, and as a result discovered All Ends, Elysion and Dark Princess. I feel like I should do more random journeys of that sort, find more bands. Unfortunately, I still have yet to find a band to measure up to Blind Guardian.

Dream Evil is a mixed deal for me. I find most of their songs about average, but every once in a while they have songs that really dig into my ear.

NOTHING will ever beat HMJ, though, off of Dragon Slayer.

As for what I'm listening to...

Edguy - Speedhoven

Welcome to this wonderworld
Everybody take your sledges
Winterland Plutocracy
Down the slope don't fear the hedges

Everybody in their box
Waiting under rights of action
Raise your heads and hold your breath
I can't stand your putrefaction

I can smell your brain decay
As you look down at the stage and
Drive me mad and then insane
Welcome to the show!


God, I love that opening...

Ah, see, to me Dream Evil is really old school metal.
I love that they don't throw any pretentious stuff at the listener, only give us music, and a few funny/cheesy lines.
It makes them my favorite Metal Band, just because I can listen straight through the playlist of their songs and never get bored.

Although I favor a few other songs of theirs, i.e. children of the night, only for the night, united, the chosen ones, into the moonlight, and a few of their ballads.

If you like metal with a female vocalist, I'd recommend Within Temptation, if you don't mind Gothic Metal, otherwise I recently found

These guys, which aren't bad either.
Lunatica - Hymn

HIM - Gone With The Sin

Oh, I so love this song... good taste, so very good taste.

I don't particularly care for the film, but I love the song.

I can definitely see your point on Dream Evil. That really is part of the charm, that they just don't seem to give a crap in a lot of ways and are having fun. I get that same feeling with Hammerfall, especially if you watch most of their music videos. They have tried to get fans involved with a number of them, and while most of the videos are absolutely terrible, they are still good for a laugh. The band just looks like they're having fun rather than taking themselves too seriously.

Children of the Night, United and Into the Moonlight are all good. This one just came onto my playlist, though. :)



I'll give the song you posted a listen after. As for Within Temptation, well, for some reason I can't get into them. Same with Epica. Those two and Nightwish are the biggest female vocal metal bands, at least in the states, but for some reason I can't get into Within Temptation or Epica. Nightwish I only really got into Dark Passion Play, and even then it was select songs.

I'm still waiting for an all female power metal band, though. Like, female guitarists and drummers and stuff. That would kick ass. Well, theoretically. They could also be a disappointment, like Kitty.

Yep, my just about weekly posting of this song. Seems to be the only one capable of calming me down and centering me.
