Keeper Of Dreams / Press

"The nice, neat sound, which is rough enough instead of being fashionably polished, lets bass player Tamas Korb's smart bass lines - that often stray from just following the guitar riffs - easily audible. The drumming of Mark Maczak is complex, yet musical, he doesn't sacrifice musicality on the altar of technical skills. The last piece of the puzzle is the voice of guitarist Marton Kiss, who sounds like someone who had inherited poor Chuck Schuldiner's vocal cords."

"I bumped into the youngsters of Keeper Of Dreams accidentally, attending Tim "Ripper" Owens' latest solo gig in Budapest, Hungary. Tim wanted to do something special, bringing a live world premiere of the song Ghost Town by his all-star Charred Walls Of The Damned project with a local backing band. That was the first time I met the music of Keeper Of Dreams, and I'm a fan of the band since that day."

"As for the style description, the band said everything from death, thrash and speed metal to progressive metal, and it's clear that they don't want themselves to be described simply as Death imitators. Still, the 9-song debut album carries a lot of the late & great Chuck Schuldiner's legacy, especially the last couple of Death records. The voice of guitarist Marton Kiss is hauntingly reminescent of Chuck's, and the instrumental passages are also written in the same thought-provoking but brutal manner that made Death one of the most influential bands in metal. Keeper Of Dreams adds a pinch of thrash to the essence, but at first listen, they remind me a lot of Death's last era."
