Le Reverie “Dark Symphony”

By Rad Chad Reynolds

The long-awaited debut album “Dark Symphony” from Le Reverie has finally been released. Le Reverie is a female-fronted Goth/Prog Metal Band that sounds like a cross of Evanescence and Dream Theater. They will lure you in with their haunting melodies and their dark heavy tracks.

This album will take you on a journey from the haunting tribute to Edgar Allen Poe, “Raven” and the tender ballad “Ghost of You” to the dark progressive title track “Dark Symphony” These songs will have you in a trance with their dark melodies combined with their classic metal sounds. It will rip and tear you apart ever so sweetly and have you crawling back for more. Their songs boast an array of powerful progression and passion while still retaining its heavy metal attitude.

Allie Jorgen’s vocals are amazingly haunting. On “Dark Symphony”  Jorgen is a master of melody, with the gift of enhancing even the most jagged arrangements with her haunting vocals, especially with the Mysterious OG on Keyboards, Jeff Mallow’s shred- like progressive guitar riffs, Roc Boyum’s powerful drumming style and Daniele De Cario on bass backing her up.  And it all shows on one of my favorite songs on this album,  “Le Reverie (The Dream).”

The first pressing of the album comes with a little extra DVD of the video for “Hold Me Down” that you don’t want to miss.

Le Reverie strength is clear, they are an outstanding band who have written a brilliant album featuring powerful songs. Breaking boundaries…”Dark Symphony” demands the attention of diverse fans of Progressive Metal Music. They will be a musical force to be reckoned with for years to come.
