MATTSSON Dream Child Lion Music (2008)


The new album by Lars Eric Mattsson and this time around he has recruited Adrienn Antal on vocals. Adrienn has a rich, soaring vocal well suited to the music which features much more symphonic backing in keys/strings than previous Mattsson albums.

Interesting use of electronic effects on both the title track and 'Killing Everything', each song is an instant hit with the listener due to their hook filled choruses.

'Heaven and Hell Unite' takes in goth, prog and metal along the way with Mattsson going into solo overdrive! Eddie Sledgehammer as his name would suggest bashes seven shades of the proverbial out of the drums although in a musical way.

One other 'must listen' is 'I'm Coming Home' which beats bands like After Forever or Edenbridge at their own game - lovely vocals, intricate guitar soloing backed by some very lush arrangements.

A Mattsson album never disappoints and this is possibly his finest release to date and in vocalist Adrienn Antal he has found a real talent. Prog/symphonic metal as it should be done.
