Dream Demon
– Wasted Time

Label: Out Of Line Music

Released: 4 August 2022

Dream Demon – Wasted time
Dream Demon’s new single “Wasted Time” goes from the punchy and melodic song with some powerful vocals to choruses with aggressive growls while still keeping the melody.

Vocals are very clear, and the melody is crisp and sharp.

The lyrics in this metal song hold such meaning and are very, very good and deserve a listen. 

Dream Demon will undoubtedly be heard much more in the future as they are proving they have what it takes both lyrically and musically.

A great song overall that is very enjoyable.


Dream Demon have established themselves very quickly in the South African metal music scene, garnering international attention through social media channels and streaming services. Having already showcased a couple of synth-laden metalcore tracks and an arena rock anthem with the previous song "Fool Me" and "Caught in Suspension", the band intends to continue experimenting and crafting audio to bring energetic and eclectic offerings to their listeners and is back now with their new single "Wasted Time" showing a more contemplative side of their music.      

"Wasted Time is about looking back on a relationship that, in hindsight, was one-sided. Many of us have pursued relationships in our lives where the effort we put in was not reciprocated, and it leaves a very specific feeling of both hurt and anger. This song is written from the perspective of someone who is still pining for a love that never truly was, and aware that it never will be.” - Dream Demon

Dream Demon haben sich sehr schnell in der südafrikanischen Musikszene etabliert und durch Social Media und Streaming-Dienste internationale Aufmerksamkeit erlangt. Nachdem sie bereits einige synthielastige Metalcore-Tracks und eine Arena-Rock-Hymne mit dem Song "Fool Me" und "Caught in Suspension" präsentiert haben, meldet sich die Band nun mit der neuen Single "Wasted Time" zurück, die eine eher melancholische Seite ihrer Musik zeigt.      . 

"In "Wasted Time" geht es darum, auf eine Beziehung zurückzublicken, die im Nachhinein betrachtet einseitig war. Viele von uns haben in ihrem Leben Beziehungen geführt, in denen die Bemühungen, die wir aufgewendet haben, nicht erwidert wurden, und das hinterlässt ein sehr spezifisches Gefühl von Schmerz und Wut. Dieser Song ist aus der Perspektive eines Menschen geschrieben, dessen Sehnsucht nach einer Liebe besteht, die nie wirklich war, und sich bewusst ist, dass sie es nie sein wird." - Dream Demon
