If you can’t wait for new Evanescence stuff to be released, I have a solution for you: END OF THE DREAM are not only named after one of their songs, but their sound – especially vocals – are made of the same piece. That doesn’t automatically mean this is a copy or tribute band. END OF THE DREAM just take the vibes from their idols’ music and create something new.
The result is really beautiful! “All I am” is a combination of rock & symphonic. And on top there is this amazing light voice. Vocalist Micky Huijsmans has a strong voice & makes the music special. Now guess who her vocal teacher is..? Find out in our interview below!
“All I am” contains of strong, slower rock songs like the title track, epic symphonic tracks like the opener ‘Follow the angels’ & ballads. ‘Collide’ is such a beautiful song! Another song you should check out is ‘Colder’ – melancholy, darkness, romance, tragedy & a lot of rock, all in one song. END OF THE DREAM did a really good job on that one.
But the whole album is worth to be checked out. With ‘Dark reflection’ there is only one song I find too long, so that it becomes kind of boring on the long term. END OF DREAM is a talented young band who manages to take its inspiration from their idols but doesn’t forget to put a personal note into the sound. But what did I expect from a Dutch female fronted band? Yes, that sidekick was necessary ;). Give “All I am” a try. You won’t be disappointed.
