Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Zack Ohren at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California (Suffocation, Fallujah, The Zenith Passage etc.), Calling From A Dream is the story of a young man’s journey to reunite with the soul of his lost lover. Through his dreams, she guides him across a dark mysterious world filled with gods and demons.
Calling From A Dream is INANIMATE EXISTENCE’s multifaceted, nine-track follow-up their critically-lauded A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement studio offering. “After the release of our last album, we decided to take our sound to a new place while incorporating our roots,” the band elaborates. “Expect deep compositions with many emotional ups and downs. Inspiration was drawn from music theorists and composers dating back thousands of years. WithinCalling From A Dream, listeners will encounter a wide array of musical elements blended to form a rich contrast of sonic textures that result in a dynamic aural experience.” Gushes Dead Rhetoric in a recent 9.5/10 review, “A lively, dark, and emotive tale awaits those who venture into Calling From A Dream. INANIMATE EXISTENCE continue to improve their storytelling/songwriting abilities, and at this point should be considered one of death metal’s finest in this regard. Calling From A Dream is a near-magical listen – technically-impressive death metal that is enhanced by a keen sense of atmosphere and emotion that brings the listener on a compelling trip to a mysterious realm.”
INANIMATE EXISTENCE formed in 2012 and is notorious for pushing the boundaries of metal. Their fresh approach to songwriting and arrangements shine an innovative light into the dark and grim genre. With the output of Calling From A Dream, they promise to deliver an even more refined and mature sound.
