ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DREMORA was a female-fronted symphonic metal project from Los Angeles, CA that mashed thrashy metal guitars with classical symphonic orchestration, then polished it with female operatic rock vocals and snarling male gutturals. The project formed in 2006, and after a CD release followed by international airplay was retired in 2008. In late 2009 the original founder moved on to form a full 6pc band of the same genre, but under a different name. The new act will debut in spring 2011.

"Martyrs" has been described by its fans as similar to Nightwish, Epica, After Forever, Therion, Tristania, Dream Theater, and Megadeth.

The Martyrs EP is a limited production Digipak format CD, containing 4 songs with dark-themed art and lyrics. It is the only release from Dremora. It was released internationally on August 3rd, 2007, and has a total running time of 22:48. Currently out of production, it is only available in physical format as supplies last.

Dremora was also part of two compilation albums. 'A World of Sirens' released August 2008 by Sonic Cathedral & Nuclear Blast, and 'Ferocity and Femininity' released July 2008 by Anthem Records NL. Each compilation contains a different remastered song off the MARTYRS EP. Autographed copies of the MARTYRS EP are available at Sonic Cathedral's site. Visit our MySpace page for ordering information.

Track 1 "Alone" is an emotional ensemble with an unforgettable chorus and a solid gothic-rock feel about it.

Track 2 "Martys and Madmen" has old school thrashy downtuned guitars and operatic vocals so powerful during the chorus that it gives goosebumps; it's themed after the fight against terrorism and delivers a powerful message.

Track 3 "Fair Haven" invokes a journey towards a wonderful sanctuary we would all like to find, with its extensive use of celtic panpipe flutes and heavy strings that build the aura of peace and tranquility--until the heavy thrash riffing and grunting vocal descends upon the unsuspecting voyager and shreds the fragile illusion.

Track 4 "Transcending God" is an emotive instrumental characterized by several ups and downs in the song that carries the listener away on a symphony of violins and thick horns, with intertwined sections of haunting and captivating vocal melodies as well as a heavy aura of clean and distorted guitars.

Beyond Amazing...
I streamed the first track of this EP after trying to find bands that sound like Epica...I was so impressed i bought the album without even listening to the other tracks this is AMAZING music. As marion said in the first comment the only downside is there is only 4 tracks i would love to give this band 10 out of 5 stars i am that impressed with the pure force of talent.

Great sound!
I enjoyed the gothic edge to this EP, characterised by the soaring vocals, layered symphonic arrangements, with the occasional double-kick thrown in, all used to great effect.

Plenty of care has been taken with each aspect of the sound... Fair Haven is definitely my favourite.

My sole complaint is that there are only 4 songs - I would definitely like to hear more!
