Now, ex-members from Dio, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne and Whitesnake have decided to revive more of a classic rock era style of playing and formed a new group, ‘Dream Child’.
With Craig Goldy on guitar (Dio), Rudy Sarzo on bass (Ozzy/Whitesnake) and Simon Wright on drums (AC/DC).
Recent years have seen a surge in hard rock and metal bands that clearly show their influences come from bands such as AC/DC, Dio, Whitesnake, Ozzy, and even bands like Gun & Roses, but they simply imitate these artists and focus more on image as opposed to sound. Modern bands seem to have lost the sacred art of songwriting, it’s all about playing scales as fast as you can with as many chord progressions as possible. There’s no build up, there’s no suspense, there’s no excitement.
Dream Child have literally just walked through the saloon doors, given everyone a demon stare and watched the room fall silent in awe of their greatness. Opening track, ‘Under The Wire’ is a 6-minute long behemoth of an anthem and you quickly feel yourself being transported through an 80’s heavy metal hellfire surrounded by rapturous riffs and venomous vocals. This is how you write a heavy metal record!
This album is an absolute beast and each member has truly stamped their own iconic sound into every track. Saying that we do have to make a special mention regarding Craig Goldy, his guitar work on this record is outstanding! Every single riff will give you goosebumps. ‘Until Death Do We Meet Again’ is what happens when real musicians with real passion for their art enter a studio together, they’re in this for the music, not the fame, not the fortune. This album represents everything that is missing from modern rock and roll and heavy metal, musicians with pure passion and natural talent for their craft. Diego Valdez's’ vocals are epic and a true homage to some of the greats such as Dio. This album is an uprising of evil in every way, it’s incredible from start to finish. The heavy metal revolution is here, and it sounds so fucking good thanks to Dream Child.
