Company of Dreams is a female fronted metalband from the Netherlands. The history of Dreams starts at the beginning of 2014 when Deborah and Ronald  decided to start the band. Soon after recording the demo song The Black Crow, Peter  joined the band. With this line-up C.O.D recorded 5 songs for the Black Crow demo.

After the release of the demo in 2016 Jeroen  and Ruth  joined the band. In January 2017 Laura joined the band on backing vocals , With this line-up we released the Secret of Life single. Shortly after this release C.O.D and Jeroen decided to part ways. Marc joined the band in May 2017 as our new guitar player.

At this moment Laura has left the band and Alissa took her place.

In Februari 2018 we recorded the song “Destination” at Big Dog Recordings. It was a present from our bassplayer Ruth and his wife Petra. We were all grateful. In September of this year we want to record our EP at Big Dog Recordings.
