Osada Vida, one of the best progressive rock bands from Poland, returns with their third full-length album – â€œUninvited Dreamsâ€. The new album will be officially released in Europe next Monday, 23rd November. The band’s American fans will have to wait till 1st December.
And today Åukasz Lisiak (bass, vocal) says about â€œUninvited Dreamsâ€ lyrics: â€œAs it was in the past, Adam Podzimski, our drummer, is the author of the lyrics. We have always avoided being literal and this hasn’t changed this time as well. The album’s title explains the whole content. Dreams have fascinated people through the years. Letâ€™s look at all dreams’ interpretations created in many cultures and centuries, fortune-tellers and astrologists, even scientists who tried to study dreams. We focused only on those â€œunwantedâ€ ones. Everyone must have experienced a bad dream, one you wish to forget as soon as you wake up. At other times, although you wanted to dream about pleasures, no pleasant things appeared â€“ just the black hole. Taking into consideration the fact that we sleep through 1/3 of our life, such situations are pretty frequent. Why? Because of stress, sadness and everyday problems inevitably accompanying our life. Sometimes, you go to bed with a hope that night will bring the desired solution and a change for the better. This is what the new CD is all about. In terms of lyrics, â€Univited Dreamsâ€ is probably Osada Vidaâ€™s saddest album. Itâ€™s no secret that we try to express the content through sounds rather than words. Therefore our albums are 70% instrumental. The same is true with reference to the new album, although we have prepared a few vocal surprises. I deeply believe that they are really positive and make the whole album sound fantastic. I will not reveal any more details â€“ you’ll have to wait for the release.â€
You can listen to another sneak preview of the album. Track â€œMy Nightmare Is Scared Of Meâ€œ is available on Metal Mind Productionsâ€™ official Myspace profile: www.myspace.com/metalmindproductions
