Lucid Dreams hails from Norway, and Build And Destroy is their sophomore release. The band plays predominantly Melodic Metal – what you’ll hear in Build And Destroy is straightforward without many bells or whistles. This 8-track release is rather “short” by today’s standards (about 40 minutes), but those 8 are generally solid from beginning to end. The musical talent and songwriting ability of the band both seem to be in place … however, vocalist Fredrik Sindsen comes through a bit awkwardly at times, and needs to work on his delivery by “selling” his performance with more “punch” within each track.
