The project called DNR starts in 2005, when Kira, bass player, since ever artistically influenced by the Jrock/Visual Kei japanese scene, decides to create a band that would be the perfect fusion between two opposite sounds: the european groove and the asiatic melodic lines.
A mix between Orient and Occident, a new genre called “Eurovisual”, which transport us in an avant garde universe where electronic and melody meet powerfull riffs made in USA.
Along with Ash (drums), Sieg (guitar), Mantis (voice), Delord (keyboard), DNR project comes to life.
The band records some songs including their first single Visual Evolution and the Ep Visual Reloaded.
In 2009, due to artistic differences, the original trio and the singer comes to a split deciding to follow their own different ways.
During the same year, the band turns its name into Dreams Not Reality (DNR) and finally finds its definitive voice with Axia, which vocal qualities open new ways to the band's work. His dynamic and aggressive tone, heritage from his past cooperations with hard rock cover bands, his scenic charisma acquired through his experience on foreign stages, help DNR guys to get their uniqueness, the only band in its genre which focus attention in Italy and the rest of the world. Attention who will drive them to play live in their own country and in many other east european territories, filling venues and driving the crowd crazy.
In 2009 also comes an unexpected collaboration, “bizarre” we could call it. Luminor, Cinema Bizarre ex-keyboard player/second voice, gets interested in their project and record some track with them as special guest. He will also join the band performing live shows around Italy and Europe.
In 2011, after recording their first single/video "Beyond This World", the quartet decides to come back to 5 elements, definitely completing the line-up with the coming of the "quintessence", directly from Tokyo, Japan; actor, model singer and keyboarder, the amazing Sebastiano Serafini aka: SEBA on keys and vocals.
