Descending Into A Dream

by Mortiis

COTBW exclusive


Hey! On the verge of heading out on a 6 week tour of Europe, supporting Mayhem, but I just wanted to share this complete demo (I call it a demo, since it´s part of something larger, that will eventually see the light of day) of Descending Into a Dream. Inspired by, and based on Dreams Of Unknown Kadath, by H.P. Lovecraft. This piece will be included on an H.P. Lovecraft tribute compilation album, to be released later this year by the Italian cult label, Black Widow Records. I´ve taken a different direction with this music...Mostly finding inspiration in the works of Vangelis and Engima, and of course a dose of Tangerine Dream.

Please note: The artwork is placeholder ONLY. It´s not in any way final artwork for anything. I do not hold any rights to it.

Oh those yonder days of media hypocrisy.
Became band. Band died.
Broke ribs, dreams and industry shackles, but remained free.
