What The Media Is Saying About Le Reverie's Album "Dark Symphony"
"Dark Symphony sounds like it should be coming out of northern Europe rather than right here in America. I would liken this band to the sound and feeling of bands such as Dream Theater, Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil and a bit of early Evanescence. A great album by a great band!" NATIONAL ROCK REVIEW
"Le Reverie ('The Dream') catches you with its metal-influences guitar and rhythm, paired with use of piano and (Allie) Jorgen's soaring vocals. A solid release...a strong future for Le Reverie is in store."
ROCK OVER AMERICA
"I received Dark Symphony and found this collection of work to be a truly magnificent gem of musical composition. Allie Jorgen has a classically trained voice, taken to the limits. Jorgen gives a wonderfully sparkling performance in this album, bringing you spellbinding imagery in song that are as a siren's call that draws ships into the rocks on a merciless sea." XOMBIEWOOF MAGAZINE
Le Reverie means "The Dream" in French (with a few spelling changes); and singer Allie Jorgen says it is a good name for the band because the philosophy and message of the band is; "Everyone has some kind of dream and each person is unique and has something special to offer. We hope to inspire the message that everyone should follow their dreams no matter what, and not to let anyone stand in your way or hold you down." When asked to describe their music, Allie says: "It's powerful and able to reach people on an emotional level, it is about everyday situations that we all go through."
Le Reverie recorded their 3-song EP "Truth & Lies" with Legendary Producer, Ron Nevison at famed East West Studios in Hollywood, California. The first song off the EP, "Hold Me Down" won "Breakout Single of the Year" from the Los Angeles Music Awards - presented to Le Reverie on the Red Carpet at the Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood, California and played on both Internet radio and radio stations worldwide. "Le Reverie is an amazing assortment of musicians and songwriters fronted by Allie Jorgen, destined to be on top!," said Nevison of his experience in working with the band.
Le Reverie was selected "One Of The Top 20 Best LIVE Artists of 2011" by MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE.
In September 2012, the long-awaited CD "Dark Symphony" was released. Dark Symphony is a combination of Symphony, Goth Rock, Metal and Progressive Rock and will take you on an amazing journey from the symphonic musical elegance of "La Naissance" to the dark, heavy/progressive title track, "Dark Symphony" to the tender ballad "Ghost of You" and the haunting tribute to Edgar Allan Poe himself, "Raven." The first pressing of the CD also includes a free DVD of their Gothic video of the song "Hold Me Down."
