DREAMFIRE – ATLANTEAN SYMPHONY EXPANDED EDITION
LABEL: MINOTAURO RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: 27/04/18
Back in 2014 musical mastermind Osirion unveiled the first full length album from his atmospheric, neo-classical/ambient solo project – Dreamfire
. Nearly fifteen years in the making, Atlantean Symphony was an exploration of the worlds of myth and legend, a doorway to ancient mysteries; an experience that could transport the willing listener to realms beyond mundane experience. Despite only being released independently, the Dreamfire debut caught the imagination of all those who heard it and inspired rapturous responses from respected magazines like Zero Tolerance and Ondes Chocs.
Creatively drained by the writing and recording experience of creating Atlantean Symphony, Osirion withdrew from the spotlight, back into the shadows and the silence. However, as 2017 drew to a close, Minotauro Records were able to coax the enigmatic composer from his haunted halls once more and the first fruits of this new alliance are now available to all; a new edition of Atlantean Symphony, completely remastered, with stunning new artwork and booklet design and two bonus tracks; a 2018 reworking of the original album’s grandiose finale, ‘An Epitaph Engraved In Water’ and the Dreamfire interpretation of Ramin Djawadi’s ‘The Rains Of Castamere’ – as featured in the HBO series, Game Of Thrones.
This is the ultimate edition of the captivating album that in its original form had Zero Tolerance Magazine hailing it as “brooding, inspiring and atmospheric”, a reimagining of the listening experience that left ThisIsNotAScene “imbued with a sense of wonder”. Even more beautifully presented, its atmosphere even more engulfing...beyond epic, beyond dreams, Atlantean Symphony now appears in its ultimate incarnation. Already Giornale Metal have proclaimed this expanded edition of the album "...a pearl of great instrumental music..." and further adulation is bound to follow as more and more people find their way through the gateway to myth and magic, accept the invitation to discover the long lost memories of a greater age.
The 2018 Expanded Edition of Atlantean Symphony is just the beginning of what we can expect from Dreamfire...but what a beginning! And after all, every great story begins with a captivating opening chapter. The doorway is open and your dreams are waiting...
