Angel Of Metal conducted an interview with Swedish metallers DREAM EVIL at the inaugural installment of the Hammerfest festival, which was held April 24-25 at at Pontins, Prestatyn Sands, Wales, United Kingdom. Watch the chat below.
DREAM EVIL has spent the past few months writing and recording material for the band's new album, tentatively titled "In The Night". A fall release is expected.
DREAM EVIL released its first live DVD/CD, "Gold Medal In Metal (Alive & Archive)", last year via Century Media. The live DVD was recorded at the on November 25, 2006 show in the band's hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, KAMELOT, etc.) and the cover artwork for this release was created by Seth (PARADISE LOST, EXODUS, MOONSPELL). The double CD (with a playing time of over two hours!) and the special DVD version (playing time of the DVD is over 100 minutes and both audio CDs are included in this package as well) are a complete guide into the vaults of DREAM EVIL and "a trip to the core of true metal at its very rockin' best," according to a press release. The bonus disc ("Archive") features over an hour of previously unreleased and rare material, including plenty of Japanese bonus songs from the recording sessions for "The Book Of Heavy Metal" (featuring former band members Gus G. on guitar and Snowy Shaw on drums) and earlier albums, some outtakes from the band's latest studio opus "United" and three brand new studio tracks recorded especially for this release in 2007.
DREAM EVIL's latest studio album, "United", hit the Swedish official album chart at position #24, the Swedish metal chart at #3 as well as the Greek album chart at position #41.
