Although For The Fallen Dreams was established in 2003, their significant story began with the launch of their album “Changes” in 2008. This album had an irreversible and unremarkable impact on the heavy music scene. After the release of “Changes,” For The Fallen Dreams continued to release five more outstanding full-length records.

Their albums include the atmospheric and moody “Relentless,” the chart-topping comeback record “Heavy Hearts,” which ranked at #162 on the Billboard Top 200 and #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers lists, and “Six,” their debut into more metallic territory, which garnered over 20 million views on YouTube and tens of millions of streams on various streaming platforms. Despite undergoing significant changes, For The Fallen Dreams remains dedicated to constant growth while delivering primal yet emotional music that has made them a staple in modern metal.
