Dreamtale (Beyond reality)

To be fully accurate, there are some Stratovarius influences in some of the themes, and there is also a bit of Yngwie’s influence in the main theme of this album’s epic “Heart’s Desire” (the song “Devil in Disguise” off of Eclipse comes to mind). We’ve also seen a fair share of influence from Fates Warning, particularly when you listen to some of the acoustic tracks on here, not to mention a slight Queensryche tinge in the way the intro theme of “The Dawn” transitions in and out at various points in the album. And of course, comparisons to “Tarot” are also likely as two of the more powerful songs on here are sung by their vocalist Marco Hietala.

Biography of Dreamtale:

It all began in 1999, from an idea by Rami Keränen of a band called Dreamtale. Thoughts turned into reality in the end of that year and the first songs of Dreamtale were captured on tape. This recording would later be known as “Shadow of the Frozen Sun.”

The second demo-recording or, as a matter of fact, several dozens of them ended up in a Japanese record shop DiskHeaven, and through them Dreamtale got the attention of local metalheads. The excitement that followed resulted in several foreign record labels offering various kinds of recording deals. The biggest independent label in Japan contacted Spinefarm in the Autumn of 2001 and informed them of their willing to license Dreamtale’s album in Japan. And after people in Finland followed suit with Japan, Dreamtale and Spinefarm signed a contract in December 2001.

In 2002, the band’s debut Beyond Reality was released. Vocals were sung by Rami Keränen, Sanna Natunen and also the man known from bands like Nightwish & Tarot – Marco Hietala.

Next year, 2003, saw the Publishing of Ocean’s Heart. On this album the vocalist was Tomi Viiltola, but unfortunately the band and Tomi parted ways due to a problematic 400km distance. Ocean’s Heart-album also features the singing talent of Rainer Nygård from Diablo.

After that, in 2004, the band took a break, concentrating on writing new material and recording the third album.

In 2005, Difference appeared. The Japanese bonus track “Powerplay” was released as a single, which immediately went number 9 on the official single chart in Finland. On this album the vocals were sung by Jarkko Ahola, who is no stranger to Finnish metal fans.

Now we are in the dawn of a new age, the 4th album "Phoenix", released in Europe through Motley Ltd., in Japan/Thailand/Korea through Marquee / Avalon and in Russia through Fono Ltd. New members bring New Life, yet holding on to the Memories of Time, because they are not Yesterday's News! ‘The Tale’ is moving onwards, spreading its wings and rising high in the heavy-metal heavens.
