Anyway, that 'Dream Machine' forms the concept of French rock band Sybernetyks. Rooted in modern metal, they add a bunch of electronics to their style, which reminds me of something between the radio friendliness of Linkin Park and the pounding industrial approach of Pain. Opener 'Virtual Lights' perfectly sets the tone for the whole album, being a well-written song, both heavy and perfectly suited for big arenas around the world.
'D.N.A.' is an early highlight on this album, but since the songs are usually based on the same concept, most of them have quite a similar sound. Perhaps that could be my only point of criticism for this one. Perhaps, the marriage between heavy rock and electronic could be expanded and explored a bit more in the near future. Yet, I soon forget that petite aspect when I listen to the epic ballad 'As The Stars Fade Away'.
In its entirety, the albums feels very modern and capable to entertain a large audience. The vocals, and vocal lines, are very listener friendly. No screams, no complicated hooks and twists, no nasty surprises, just a mature and victorious sound. In fact, I don't really have a lot to compare with, but I can easily imagine songs like 'Satellite', 'Tech-Noir' or 'Genesis' being used as intros for wrestling shows or such.
So no, I don't really know who to recommend this album to. Industrial fans might find this a bit too goody-goody while fans of decent written pop music might think it's too heavy. What I do know is the fact that 'Revolution' is a stunning piece of work, my absolute favorite here. You know what, I'll just recommend to all your rock and metal fans out there. It's something different, yet familiar and it's professional as hell too.
