California melodic death metallers DREAMING DEAD are putting the finishing touches on their new full-length album for a fall release. The follow-up to 2009’s “Within One” (Ibex Moon) will include the song “Midnightmares”, a demo version of which can be streamed on the band’s Facebook page(“Like” required).
Fronted and founded by Elizabeth Schall, DREAMING DEAD released its first recording, “Through The Eyes Of Insanity”, in 2006 under the group’s previous moniker, MANSLAUGHTER. Influenced by the likes of DEATH, SLAYER, CRYPTOPSY and OPETH, the CD received stellar reviews, leaving listeners aching for more of the band’s blackened, death-thrash attack. “Within On” was met with similar accolades. About.com called the record “sometimes extreme, sometimes delicate and usually compelling,” while BLABBERMOUTH.NET noted, “DREAMING DEAD are on; it’s easy to see world domination in their future.” Metal Maniacs agreed, calling “Within One” “…a smattering of classic US DM stylings and high-velocity thrash, set the tune of Schall‘s scathing vocals and surprinsingly and agile guitar runs.”
DREAMING DEAD will play two special shows this fall — one opening for MORBID ANGEL in West Hollywood later this month and another at the Goregrowler’s Ball in San Antonio alongside DECEASED, HOD, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR and many others.

Elizabeth Schall – Vocals/Guitar
