Dreamstate Emergency Releases "Oneirophobia" Album

Dreamstate Emergency has released a new LP titled "Oneirophobia." The album is comprised of nine original tracks for a running total of half an hour. Tracks are now available for streaming at the band's website here, and the following press release was also issued about the album:

"A brutal, shocking, stabbing record with all the ferocity and viciousness that speed and death metal have been aiming to achieve for more than thirty years, 'Oneirophobia' is all that is horrifyingly wrong with the world, wrapped up in a set list that will chill bones, grip hearts, and strip the paint off of household appliances at appropriately high volumes.

"This being roundly and explicitly understood, 'Oneirophobia' is a work of great artistic integrity, vivid color, and genius-level composition. It is metal for the thinking man. Perhaps best categorized as experimental metal more than anything else, it belongs next to Neurosis in the audiophile's cherished record collection. Like Neurosis, Dreamstate Emergency is not afraid of digital instrumentation and effects that are often frightening to the core. The careful listener will hear air-raid sirens, faraway shell explosions, and much, much more. Additionally, they boast vocals that shriek and howl, scream and tear in ways Metallica's James Hetfield has always wished he could pull off.

"Dreamstate Emergency's drums pound in tribal, occult patterns that evoke visions of bonfires, chants, and black hoods. Their guitars are like an ocean of orchestrated noise, a chorus of demonic sirens' calls from deep beneath the earth. The brilliance of their guitar playing is perhaps best exemplified in their track, 'Out of Body Experience.' The listener who can hear the song through to its end without the hairs on his forearms standing up has no soul. Their songwriting is masterful and tasteful, often surprisingly, almost impossibly precise. Their decision to leave 'The Awakening' in all its beautiful simplicity at barely over a minute long shows an understanding of musical principles most artists never garner in decades of writing and performing."'
