wildfirelink Beautiful and fascinating symphonic electronic progressive metal album with absolutely stunning production and songwriting. In places it reminds me of a more complex, edgier and futuristic Nightwish and even Ayreon. References aside, it really stands on its own and keeps you hooked until the end. Both lightly atmospheric and crushingly heavy, Melotronical stands as a gorgeous beacon of light for this genre, and I'm very happy I stumbled upon Factory of Dreams. Love it! Favorite track: Obsessical.

about

MELOTRONICAL is the 3rd Factory of Dreams album. A conceptual CD, revolving around the evolution of an electronic Molecule into a living breathing Entity. This entity, experiences several stages of life, goes through all emotions, love, hate, fear, happiness... The track list is arranged according to this evolution, and one can have a feel of each stage just by reading each song title, listening to the songs and lyrics. The finale starts with Dimension Crusher, when all hope is lost and a new Universe is idealized through Reprogramming.

MELOTRONICAL pushes and goes far beyond the boundaries of the Electronic Progressive Metal genre, and while it is certainly Hugo's and Factory of Dreams' heaviest album, it still retains the fingerprint of Factory of Dreams' sound, with heavy passages balanced by atmospheric parts, rhythmical changes and instrumental sections that are sure to delight all who appreciate the genre.

Track highlights are the epic Protonic Stream, the brutal but catchy Obsessical, the beautiful and atmospheric Back to sleep and the explosive Dimension Crusher. Hugo also decided to remake an older song called Something Calling Me, now revamped by Jessica's voice.

'...a hell of an album here which is already my favorite of 2011' (10/10) - DJ ANubis ning.it/iZKVlA

Melotronical

Slowly,
Building,
Rising
I feel the melody flow

Gently,
Gliding,
Through the air
I feel an electric sound grow

Chorus
Empowering the song
Empowering the beat
Can you feel the heat?
Can you feel it strong?

Thumping, pumping
The melody strikes me

Empowering the song
This melody strikes me
I'm a slave to the music
Can't escape the feeling
Can't escape!

Track Name: A Taste of Paradise
A Taste of Paradise

The Outer realms
Known to Mankind
Where everyone Lives
And everyone Dies

This strange place
An impossible Paradise
Watching us breathing
Waiting for us to Decide

Circling the Core
Longing to be there
We're the electron Cloud
We're the music Aloud


Chorus
The Paradise Unfolds
Within this unreal Cloud
Spirits will Uphold
We shall Scream and Shout
It's just so simple
No need to Analyze
All I want is a taste
A taste of Paradise


Paradise is so close
Yet we seem to be blind
To the answer in front of us
Bliss we can't seem to find

Chorus

This strange place
Where an unreal reality
Is drawn each and everyday
And fiction only a step away

Chorus

A taste of paradise
Magic for us to Cast
It's in our hands
To make it Last

The view is of Peace
Life is true now
We could live to feel Alive
Not live to Survive
Track Name: Protonic Stream
Protonic stream

I - The illusion

On a trail, like tireless ants
Following their destined path
Fighting for their cold desperate lives
Running towards their boring jobs
Hoping one day to be free...

Shrouded in an obscure fog
No sense, no hope

Waiting for the inevitable
At the end of the day
Batteries recharge
Home sweet Home
But the endless circle
Goes on and on forever

Following a virtual leader
They dream of better days
Forgetting that upon reaching bliss
They become the same blind power

Chorus
Welcome to the system
Made for survival
Not for living
Protonic Stream


The humanoid is confused
Cynical, hypocritical, scheming
Upon this World
And the circuit Dies
Machines kill like there's no tomorrow
Tomorrow, in fact, won't come very fast...

“You want to live a dream
fall asleep and never wake up”


II - Protonic Matter

We follow
Follow the trends
Circling the Atom of survival
The Core

We’re bits of energy
The subatomic particles
Moved by a thing called Hope, Positivity
We're just Machines, Protonic matter
(Fighting the magnetism of it all - whispered)

Chorus

We, the Protonic stream
So many faces and races
Quarks and gluons
Living together in peace

Enter
The Melotronical
World

Chorus
Track Name: Into Oblivion
Into Oblivion


Into Oblivion
I’m falling
Into Oblivion

Nothing makes sense anymore
Reality feels so distant
I'm hollow and unreal
A black hole forming
In the horizon of my Hopes

ChorusI
The sun shines outside
But it’s dark inside of me
I’m lost and far away
I'm falling into Oblivion


ChorusII
My soul is a mirror
Reflecting this World
The pain, the agony
The darkness unfolds
Frozen and Shattered
I'm Darkness fading
Into Oblivion

ChorusI and II

Fade away the Light
So faint within my Spirit
I’m lost in this Place
Carved with Memories
Fade away my Life
So faint within my Mind
Shattered Memories
How could I be so Blind?

There’s a force
Holding me back
Depriving me from my life
I’m cold and I'm frozen
The Ice breaks
Into Oblivion

Taken away
Stolen from me
The passion
To live, to explore
My World falls
Into Oblivion
Oblivion!
Track Name: Obsessical
Obsessical

This Mind...
Strange
Irrational
Thoughts
Invade me
Mercifully
Can’t talk them Out
Wanna scream and Shout

ChorusI
I’m Obsessed by
My own Obsession
It’s my Addiction
My Book of Fiction

I feel like I'm going
Going insane
The Darkness
Assumes Control
Obsess me
Obsessical

This World...
Obsessed with greed
Obsessed with politics
Obsessed with War!
A raising Hell
No one left to Tell

Vanity
Selfishness
A luxury
Soon to be our Tomb
Insanity
Nothingness
A fate
Certain to meet our Doom

ChorusI

Obsessed with War!
No Parole!
Obsessical!

Obsessical!
Obsessical!


This Universe...
Obsessed with Creation
Life and Death
Its own Reflection
All part of the Game
Never stopping
Driving us Insane
It’s Obsessical
Obsessical

ChorusI

ChorusII
This Love...
My soul and mind
Are Slaves
Life is No More
Without
Its own Core
Passion, Obsession

ChorusII

Passion, Obsession
My Fatal Diseases
Passion, Obsession
My Pain Increases

This Ghost...
My Shadow
Attached
To my Mind
Feeding
Me Inside
O.bse.ssi.cal!

I long
For the touch
Shivering moment
The Ghost
Becomes my Host
The shadow vanishes
Obsessical
Track Name: Back to Sleep
Back to sleep

A crowded world
Hopeless and greedy
Actors playing a role
In this Dark City

A star among a trillion ones
And I see you everyday
In my hopes and dreams
And I wake up in a scream

ChorusI
I see you everyday
In my dreams so deep
But I can’t find the way
I just wanna go back to sleep
Back to Sleep

ChorusII
Oh how I wish
To hold you in my arms
How I wish
To stay with you
Oblivious to the world outside
Don't let me go
Don't let me fall
Into the Abyss
Keep me inside forever


I’m looking for you
Within the Constellation
I want you, need you
Save me from Desperation

Wanna show you a new World
Visit Galaxies afar
New Dimensions to behold
Jumping from Star to Star

I dreamt of your eyes
My fatal addiction
But I don't know who you are
And I can’t seem to reach you

Don’t ever wake me my dear
I have chosen my place
Why can't I make it real
Why can’t I make you stay
By my side

ChorusI and II
Track Name: Whispering Eyes
Whispering Eyes

“Whispering
Whispering
Watching
Watching”

Your eyes penetrate me
Asking for no permission
Tearing my soul to Pieces
My reasoning Glitches

My defences are weakening
I'm helplessly vulnerable
Hypnotizing Attraction
Killing me with Passion

ChorusI
Gimme your Mind
Can you feel me inside
I'll make you Strive
To Embrace your Life
Gimme your Hand
Can't you see I'm your friend
You're so lost Today
I'll show you the Way

ChorusII
Persuasive eyes
Looking for me
Stalking eyes
Scanning me
Mystical eyes
Seducing me
Obsessive eyes
Controlling me

I can’t escape,
I don’t wanna escape
This gateway to
An impossible Paradise
Right in front of my Eyes
Coz I'm so lost in this World
So much to Behold

My body glows
As I reach the speed of light
So intense, it burns
I'm your Strange
Damning eyes
Whispering into
Your Mind

You can’t escape
My cruel invasion
You try to look away
But it's all in vain
Am I insane

ChorusII

I'm Paralysed
By your spell
I’m yours
See me
Control me
Help me to
Find my Way

Eyes of Fire
Tattooed on my brain
Making me insane
And I need them
To wash away my Pain (repeat)

ChorusI and II
Track Name: Subatomic Tears
Subatomic Tears

Back to the Real World

Chorus
The way the Earth is Turning
The way the Universe is Growing
The way we keep on Yearning
And I'm going in Circles
From Start to end, End to start
Crying Invisible Tears

The way the rivers’ gone Black
The way forests are Dead
The way they keep on Attack
And it’s driving me Mad
So, so sadly Sad
Crying Invisible Tears


What can I do to stop this Threat?
How can our voices be Heard?
When everyone seems Deaf
And all you end up is being Hurt

All the pain and all the Sorrow
Some rule the World
Some strive to see Tomorrow
Words of justice must be Hurled
Against these senseless Frontiers
And I cry Invisible Tears

I feel the strength in me
I can control, take control!
Become the core
Become Change itself

Chorus

The way the rivers’ gone Black
The way forests are Dead
The way they keep on Attack
Track Name: Dimension Crusher
Dimension Crusher

Deception
Desolation
Untruthful
Dimension

ChorusI
Crush the Dimension
Obliterate the Lie
Reset the Creation
It's time to say Goodbye!
Destroy the Dimension
Raise a new World
Reset the Creation
A new future to Unfold!

Images flew by
From a past long gone
To a fragile present
I was Facing
My whole life
Hopeless road
In front of me
Just standing there
Waiting to
Devour
Devour me Alive

And uncertainty rose
From within
Rolling back
All my past memories

All I've been
All that I am now
All I'll never be
Where the hell do I belong?

ChorusI


ChorusII
I look around
Fragments of my soul
Lying about
Floating in space
Windows to
Moments stuck in time
Seemingly forgotten
It’s time to move on / It’s time to say Goodbye

ChorusI and II
Track Name: Echoes from Earth
Echoes from Earth

Echoes, Echoes from Earth
Echoes, Echoes from Earth

Fireflies everywhere...
A beam of light
Here
There
Everywhere

Chorus
Echoes in my mind
How could I be so blind
Echoes from Earth
Witness my Rebirth


I recall the places
I picture the big Cities
I smell the Trees
I can touch the Wind

A wave of sound
Hits me really hard
And I Believe
The music is here!

I hear the people
I feel their body heat
I sense the music
I dance to the city lights

Oddity
Strangeness
Can't describe
This Echoed Earth

In a split second
A whole Era passes me by
I can sense my Home
And I miss her so bad

I'm a lost soul
Surrounded by loneliness
And there's no way
I'll ever have her back

And I see fireflies everywhere...
Everywhere I go

Chorus
Track Name: Something Calling me
Something calling me

This darkness fills me
With cold and fear
I cannot move
Or hear or speak

A scream dies in my mouth
I´m trapped under water
Cold and alone
It leaves a mark
On my skin
So cold

Chorus
How can this be
I cannot see
That something is calling me

It´s freezing now
And I´m loosing consciousness
Drifting away
Somewhere else
Alone

Chorus

I cannot breathe
My fingers are numb
So I am lost
In the endless blue
I´m leaving...

Chorus
Track Name: Reprogramming
Reprogramming

Nothing… Empty
Void…Pitch Black
Asleep

Chorus1
Moving
Arranging
Rearranging
This hidden Place
For us to Embrace

Defining
Refining
Creating
The Core is awaken
Second chance to be taken

ChorusII
Bit by bit
Atom by atom
Memory by memory
Melotronical

Chaos
Becomes null
Method
Is now a constant
Peacefully, silently
Planning the next move
Bit by bit
Atom by atom
Memory by memory
The process restarts

ChorusI and II

Melotronical
Melotronical


Refining the concept
Defining the new game
The Core Awakens
Restless
Space and Silence
No music, No sound
And still
The Universe is Restless!

I feel I’m floating in space
I feel my soul expanding
Perhaps I died
Or maybe life is unreal
And this is the true Dimension
Maybe we all caught the wrong train
Or followed the wrong path
But it’s wonderful
Life and death is
Melotronical

ChorusI and II

Love or Hate
No such concepts
But something different
Here I can control
Here we all can control
What we want to become
All by Will!

ChorusI and II
