Fables & Dreams

Lunatica from Switzerland have released a follow-up to their debut “Atlantis” called “Fables & Dreams” on the Frontiers Records label, and I must say I’m quite surprised here. Actually I find it an very impressive album.

“Fables & Dreams” was mixed & mastered by Sascha Paeth (Kamelot, Rhapsody, Angra), who gave it a huge and wonderful sound. Bands like Nightwish, Edenbridge and Within Temptation comes to mind, when I listen to this great release, and I find Lunatica just as good ... maybe even better!

Just listen to Andrea singing “A Little Moment Of Desperation”, “The Neverending Story” and “Elements”, songs that easily can compete with both Nightwish and Edenbridge. I highly recommend this CD to both Nightwish fans and people, who are interested in catchy symphonic metal.
