Norway-Based Metallers Dreamslain Present Eerie Offering, ‘Ghost Story’

Norway-Based Metallers Dreamslain Present Dark & Eerie Offering ‘Ghost Story’, Forge Of Rebellion Out Now

Watch ‘Ghost Story’ Here

Venturing into haunting realms, Norway-based epic progressive metal trio Dreamslain present a horror inspired and ghoul-filled offering in ‘Ghost Story’. Taken from the band’s new full length Forge Of Rebellion, which is available now, the trio’s sound is an infusion of progressive metal, extreme metal and classical influences. The album’s release show will take place in their home town of Tromsø, Norway, on Saturday 15th June 2024. Purchase tickets here.

The band comments on ‘Ghost Story’:

“‘Ghost Story’ is one of the more challenging compositions on the album, where the band abandons the usual diatonic scales to create a horror movie atmosphere before diving into thrash metal and Eastern European melodies. The song continues the critique of European refugee policy introduced in ‘Braving The Storm’, but with a supernatural twist, as shown in the music video.”

About Dreamslain:
Founded in 2010 by Igor Jakobsen and Daniel Paulsen Figenschou, Dreamslain’s line-up was completed in 2013 with the addition of Anna Loppacher. The trio’s debut EP, Tales of War, was initially unleashed in 2016, and subsequently remixed and re-released two years later. Whether based in fantasy or reality, Dreamslain convey their core message of fighting for justice and the rights for all to have fulfilling lives with powerful music. Dreamslain’s first full-length album, Tales of Knights and Distant Worlds, released as a double album on CD, was unveiled in January of 2021 and saw the metallers expand their reach to new lands. Now, in 2024, the band continue to push their musicality and creativity with the forthcoming album Forge Of Rebellion.

Dreamslain ventured into the live scene early in their career and have performed in Switzerland, in Sweden and their home of Norway. They have delivered performances with Circus Maximus in Tromsø in 2018, Bergen with Vulture Industries in 2021, and Madder Mortem in 2022 also in Tromsø. The end of 2023 saw the band perform alongside Darkest Era and Jaime at the Tromsø Metal & Prog, with early 2024 seeing the trio venture to Portugal to share the stage with Deathawaits, Black Widows and Rageful.

“Forge of Rebellion is a grand example of how this band defies genre labels and takes the listener on a journey that can simply be summed up as epic.” 8/10, Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
