BLENDING THE ROMANTICIZED, DREAMY, AMBIENT AND BEAUTIFUL WITH THE DARK, INDUSTRIAL, CONCRETE AND HIDEOUS!
The band was founded by Kim Christer Hylland and Ruben Aksnes in 2015 with a concept of creating a project that would embrace their idea of songwriting. Dreamarcher is a blackened progressive metal band based in Oslo, Norway. With their extensive collective of melodic and screaming vocals, and their mixture of hard-hitting darkness and dreamy ambience, they skillfully balance the abrasive with beauty and sensitivity. Inspired by their hometown Odda, located at the innermost point of the Hardangerfjord of Norway, their music, artwork and lyrics reflects a small industrial town surrounded by majestic nature, fjords and glaciers.
Dreamarcher released their self-titled debut album in 2016; harvesting great reviews and attention both for the record and the mind-blowing music video for the song Shadows. Since then, they have toured Europe with Black Metal pioneers Kampfar, played at big Norwegian festivals like Pstereo, Tons of Rock, Slottsfjellfestivalen, by:Larm and Inferno Metal Festival. This was followed by the live recorded EP “Harding”, which previewed the bigger concept of their next release. 2019 kicked off with a European tour supporting the legendary fathers of Blackjazz, Shining, before the release of their second album "The Bond" in august, resulting in great response and reviews.
"Their mixture of Black Metal and Alternative Rock is similar to Kvelertak and Ondt Blodt." -Visions (GER)
