Of Forgotten Dreams captures the ears of their audiences by writing catchy guitar riffs and melodies to accompany the hardcore, edgy screams with the light, aesthetic female vocals. The band is influenced by many, everything from Story of the Year and Evanescence, to Eyes Set to Kill and A Day to Remember. Using those bands in mind, they created their own original style, a sound that fuses multiple genres and breaches the borders of how music is âsupposed to sound.â Unlike some bands in the hardcore realm, OFD does not write flowery meaningless lines of abandon and sorrow that sound good together and are catchy. They want people to be able to understand and relate to their music.
Although Of Forgotten Dreams has not technically been a band long, the connection they have created between themselves and audiences of all sizes is intangible and impressive. The band is ambitious, possessing the same drive and goals as bigger bands, while balancing classes with practice, jobs with local and out-of-town shows, and life in general as young adults. With little help and guidance they have overcome many obstacles and setbacks that would have easily torn other bands apart.
