DreamCatcher–Never Look Back

DreamCatcher
Never Look Back
Due for release: 13th August
Melodic Metal
Released via Rising Records

Leeds power-riffing atmospheric metallers DreamCatcher, who are appearing twice at this year’s Bloodstock, have released their new, Never Look Back, taken from their, ‘SoulDesign‘, out now on Rising Records. In the past, the band have supported acts such as Delain and Pythia, as well as PowerQuest and have even gone onto sell-out two shows at the Cockpit in Leeds.

The EP begins with the title track Never Look Back, that starts sounding like a track taken from a Rhpasody album. The vocals are typically power metal-based, something that is emphasised by the use of keyboards and vicious snarls of the guitars add an almost Odyssean feel to the track. The following track is the instrumental piece known as Foresight. The synth intro is vaguely familiar, like the sensation of deja vu. The guitars that follow scream with a certain metallic fierceness, echoing out in similar veins to the music of Epica. I keep expecting their to be vocals in certain sections but sadly, there isn’t any. The single ends with what is a longer version of the first track, despite being a little lengthier, it’s just any epic.

I never figured any Yorkshire band could create a beautiful mixture of atmospheric sounds and power metalesque riffs but it seems DreamCatcher have managed to it and Never Look Back really does display the bands abilities at creating a perfectly balanced sound. Hopefully, they’ll be flying the flag for Yorkshire on bigger stages in the near future!
