Dream Ocean is a Symphonic Metal band found in Turkey and moved and based in Germany. After
the successful release of their first album “Lost Love Symphony” with great collaborations of many
amazing artists from the Symphonic Metal Scene such as Joost van den Broek at orchestrations
(Epica, After Forever, Xandria, Powerwolf…), Ruben Wijga on Keyboards (Revamp, Black Briar,
Dark Horse White Horse …) on guest vocals Mark Jansen (After Forever, Epica, Mayan) and Jake
E (Amaranthe, Cyhra) under Painted Bass Records, now they have chosen to continue an
independent way for their second album “The Missing Stone” and leave their fingerprint with it.
“The Missing Stone” shows Dream Ocean’s growth as musicians and as a band. Since the last album, the
