Calling From A Dream will see release on September 16th, 2016. Various preorder bundles are available now.
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. Within Calling 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.”
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.
Prior to the release of Calling From A Dream, INANIMATE EXISTENCE will bring their odes to the stage on a nine-date headlining tour from September 9th through September 18th with additional live performances to be announced in the weeks to come.
