German/Turkish symphonic metal band Dream Ocean unveils one more single from their upcoming album “The Missing Stone”. Enjoy “Eterna Espera” and its bloody music video below.
The song is taken from Dream Ocean’s upcoming album “The Missing Stone”, due out September 24. Dream Ocean’s composition is more unique, pure, and touching than ever before. “The Missing Stone”’s lyrics are truly focused on the story and were born from the most painful and personal experiences and memories of Dream Ocean’s singer Başak Ylva.
Başak comments: “I think it would be correct to admit this song is a bit about myself and how I was abused by all men around me, no matter what their role was in my life, and I was forced to turn into an emotional killer from an innocent lover left in tears.” She adds on the album: “As I said, this album IS my psychological diary, read it well if you want to get to know me.”
Founded in Istanbul in 2010 and inspired by scene giants like Nightwish, Dream Ocean have always been ones to set the bar high for themselves, and it shows. Lead singer Başak Ylva studied opera at Istanbul University State Conservatory before she moved to Germany to finish her studies at the Cologne Hochschule für Musik und Tanz with a Master of Music – all while working tirelessly towards achieving her vision with the band, and it’s safe to say that her efforts have borne fruits: Renowned collaborators chimed in to give their support, such as Epica’s Mark Jansen and Amaranthe’s Jake E, who have lent their exceptional voices to Lost Love Symphony, or Joost van den Broek (a.o. Epica, After Forever, Powerwolf) who helped orchestrate the remarkable debut. All the buzz didn’t go unnoticed and Dream Ocean soon started playing festivals all over Europe and have successfully opened for Epica and Myrath.
The band landed true underground hits with “Lost Love Symphony” and the single “Everstorm”, which received praise from even beyond the world of Symphonic Metal. “The Missing Stone” now heralds the next chapter of Dream Ocean’s journey towards synergizing their passions for opera and metal. Daydreamer is the band proving once again how seamlessly these ostensibly different worlds can be made to blend.
