Blast from the Past: Dream Aria Interview!

Out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada comes the progressive rock band Dream Aria!  Read the interview with the band dominating the MySpace Music Charts.  **Originally posted in November 2010 in the webzine’s original format.

MU- Ok, first off you guys are a very eclectic band with a very unique sound in your music.  How would you describe it to someone who’s about to listen to it for the first time? 
DA-First I would like to thank Musical Goddesses Webzine for having us on your page.  We were talking to a dj awhile back and he mention that most bands now intergrade more than one genre into there music ,the difference with us we use many genres in our music to name some, rock/hard rock/opera/classical/world/heavy metal/pop/ambient/electronic/goth/alternative/indi
e/prog/classic rock/ even within a song you may hear 3 or 4 different genres; did I help answer your question LOL , guess you just have to listen to all our work.
MU- What is the history behind Dream Aria?  How did the band come together?
DA-I am going to try to answer this question in short form.I met Garry {our drummer ,producer} from a friend of mine 7 years ago when I asked him who I might want to record with,when it was time to add vocals I had met up with 2 opera singers but when the music started to go in a heavier direction they left and thats when I found Ann who not only sang rock but could also handle the opera and all the other musical styes we were working on.   Jon our bass player came on board about 3 years ago.
MU- Dream Aria has been dominating the myspace music charts for quite sometime.  How did you guys find about the first time you topped the charts and how did it feel to be at the top of the charts on an internet site that has thousands possibly even millions of bands and musical acts?
DA-I was {for fun } checking the charts never thinking we would be #1 in the world {for unsign bands}then one day {about a year ago } I check the charts and there we were , I almost sakjdfiohegrvn myself, and from then on {we have been #1 most of the time in Canada and in the top 10 in the Global world unsign charts}
MU- There has been much debate on how the internet has impacted the music industry.  What is you view on it and do you feel it’s hurt or helped your own band?
DA-The internet has help us allot {over 600 radio station have played us, many interviews and reviews in top magazines , over 123,000 fans and friends on our myspace site also has help push up the sales } our video also has hit #1 on the myspace Canadian charts.
MU- Ok, with your new album soon to be released how would you describe it to fans and new listeners?  How is it similar to or different from your previous releases “In the Wake” and ”Transcend”?
DA-In the wake was our first cd and we were really just trying to find ourselves , with Transcend I think we established the sound of the band and with Fallen Angel {our soon to be released cd } we took Transcend and gave it a harder edge .
MU- Is there a song that’s been a fan or band favorite?
DA-In the past it was Pandora’s Box, Transcend, 11th hour but we have had a crazy feedback from Fallen Angel We have had a under 3 minute sample version of Fallen Angel on our playlist but the full song is over 6 minutes
MU- And finally (and most important) where can people sample and purchase your music?
DA-You can sample and buy our music on our page , cd’s or you can buy the digital downloads.
