The name Rising Dream has in a short time become a brand in the European metal community when the Croatian scene is talked about. Five years since it was founded, the band deservingly became the leader of the scene.
On August 8, 2008 Rising Dream issued their debut album Failed Apocalypse. Their concerts are famous for their intensity and spectacle, and they're able to make tens of thousands of people to frantically support them during their shows. Some of the biggest metal and hard rock bands have asked them to be their special guests. Deep Purple, Motörhead, Soulfly, Slayer, Anthrax, Helloween, HammerFall are just some of the bands Rising Dream have supported during the years. Iron Maiden has hand-picked Rising Dream to be their special guest at the stadium show in Split, Croatia on August 10, 2008, in front of over 20,000 fans. Rising Dream was the only band on the entire Maiden tour that got the chance to play their full 70-minute show.
The debut album's producer Denis Mujadžić Denyken is the most famous and most awarded Croatian rock and metal producer,and Visions of Atlantis and Aesma Daeva singer Melissa Ferlaak appears as a special guest. In October 2008, Rising Dream have recorded their live performance in front of the Croatian national television's cameras, thus becoming the first metal performers to get significant treatment from that particular broadcasting company.[verification needed]
