The origins of Dramatica date back to 1989, when the duo of guitarist Diego Ramirez and bassist Dennis Murcia played together in a band called Decadence. The band was never able to secure a record deal and folded in 1993. Twenty years later, the duo decided to start anew, naming their new project Dramatica and enlisting some major players to help record their debut album in drummer Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord) and two veteran singers in Michael Vescera and Mark Boals, both of whom have sung with Yngwie Malmsteen among other established acts. That debut, Fall Of Tyranny, came out in July 2016, and it certainly deserves notice, as it's a potent blend of Fates-styled progressive metal balanced with a heavier 80's style yet still modern. Given the musicians on board, it's no surprise that the performances are stellar all around. A one-off project, or the start of a career? Too soon to tell.
