The follow up to 2009’s Within One, Midnightmares showcases DREAMING DEAD‘s ability to meld elements of black, death, thrash and Schuldiner-inspired progressive metal into one thought-provoking and intense sonic assault. The album was mixed and mastered by Brian Elliot (Exhumed, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Goatwhore) of Mana Recording Studios. Cover artwork for Midnightmares was done by renowned artist Travis Smith (Opeth, King Diamond, Devin Townsend, et. al.). DREAMING DEAD are working with director Thomas Mignone and Peter Leininger (known for their work with Morbid Angel, Sepultura, Megadeth and many more) on a video for the track “Corpse Mountain.” Details on the video shoot are coming soon.
