Since their stellar 2002 debut album DRAGONSLAYER, DREAM EVIL have slowly taken a fair amount of the power metal sound out of their music and adapted a more traditional heavy metal style. While for the most part this has worked for them, there is a pretty decent amount of the power metal fan base that have since wiped their hands of the band. Hopefully those folks at least give the new album IN THE NIGHT a fair go, as it’s definitely worthy of some attention.
Though the loss of Higuchi was a tragic one, the band has managed to forge on and keep his spirit alive with some excellent music. Fans that have stuck with them, those who hold on to the past, and new fans alike should be able to take some positive feelings from 184.108.40.206
