Review: Dream Company – The Wildest Season
Tanzan Music (15th October 2019)
Reviewer: Dan Mann
Well I’d admit from the off that I’d not heard of Dream Company before the album promo email dropped into my inbox. Reading the accompanying blurb, they started off back in 2006 as a Bon Jovi tribute band. After several line up changes in 2012 Mario Percudani ((Hungryheart, Mitch Malloy, Lionville, Hardline) became involved in a producer capacity.
Moving forward to 2019 and the band have released ‘The Wildest Season‘ via Tanzan Music.
This album is very much nailed down in melodic rock territory, with some catchy tunes, especially the single ‘Revolution‘. I think the most obvious description of this album as a whole is it’s very similar to British band Vega, which is certainly not a bad thing.
With Giulio Garghentini (Vocals), Enrico Modini (Guitars), Stefano Scola (Bass),
Davide Colombi (Drums) as the current line up I think they have an oppotunity to make some inroads into the current rock scene.
Worth checking out!
Dream Company have released a video for the track ‘Revolution‘. ‘Revolution’ is the third single taken from Dream Company‘s debut album ‘The Wildest Season‘, released on October 15th via Tanzan Music.
“The song is a powerful melodic hard rock anthem about the personal revolutions that sometimes we need to pursue to change our life and the world around us in positive way”
The story behind the video, directed by Moviedel Italia production, is one of the ten that Dream Company has included in this new record.
‘The Wildest Season‘ is a musical portrait composed by their songs where there’s someone who’s ‘Scared To Be Loved‘, someone angry because of a world full of “Liars”, someone who needs to kill “The Ghost” living inside his mind and someone who needs his own ‘Revolution‘, the only way to change the world.
Dream Company‘s line up features, Tanzan Music artist Giulio Garghentini as singer, he released his solo album ‘Believe‘ with the Italian record label in 2013; Stefano Scola bass player also for Hungryheart; Enrico Modini on guitar and piano and Davide Colombi on drums.
‘Mine Mine Mine’ is one of the ten tracks included in Dream Company‘s debut album ‘The Wildest Season‘ , to be released on October 15th via Tanzan Music.
The melodic hard rock vibes of this 3 minutes and 42 second song flow very fast to listener’s ears with powerful guitar riffs and a catchy chorus.
‘Mine Mine Mine‘ is a celebration for the band’s history that counts more than 60 concerts around Europe in 13 years and it has been written for the fans that have supported Dream Company through the years becoming a very important part of their live shows.
The celebration has soon turned into a rite of passage with the band leaving behind his past as a Bon Jovi tribute band and starting to write his own original music.
