Dream Unending Release “The Needful”; Album Pre-orders Available Now




“A terrifying, dreamy trip through the never.” – Metal Injection

Dream Unending, who Brooklyn Vegan hailed as the coming together of “two great modern death metal musicians, Tomb Mold’s Derrick Vella and Innumerable Forms’ Justin DeTore” crafting music that’s “heavy and monstrous but also kind of beautiful,” have released a second track from the eagerly-awaited debut: “The Needful” (https://youtu.be/OHFFn0SFM5s).

“’The Needful’ is about facing your fears and finding the strength to overcome personal adversity,” explains Vella. “It’s a nice little disorienting song. Ends beautifully, sets up what’s left to come perfectly. Musically, it’s a three-way tribute to Esoteric, Alice in Chains, and Joe Satriani.”

Tide Turns Eternal pre-orders are available now via the 20 Buck Spin webstore and Bandcamp. The 7-track, 45-minute album is set for a Nov. 19 release (digital/CD/CS) with vinyl slated for a Feb. 4 release. The collection is available on several limited-edition vinyl color variants (exclusive to the 20 Buck Spin webstore) with Decibel Magazine offering a highly-limited version via their webstore.

Vella and DeTore’s music has been championed by a wide range of outlets including NPRRolling StoneDecibelPitchfork, and The Needle Drop amongst others. Tides Turns Eternal sees the musicians expand into entirely new and unexpected directions, composing songs that drift between emotional states both forlorn and uplifting. Ascendant Floydian guitar textures and sparkling Cure-esque strumming lift the music out of the purely metal realm, where moody rock introspection allows for Elysian respite before DeTore’s world crushing roar assures no escape from earthly tumult is certain.

“Dream Unending and Tide Turns Eternal is a testament to the idea that music can be limitless,” says Vella. “This album was created by Justin and I without ever being in the same room, city or country. It defied closed borders and acts as more than just a record. It’s an affirmation of life. It’s a vision quest. It poses questions pertaining to fear, discovery, the value of one’s soul and offers an answer. Dream Unending serves as an excellent outlet for a language that Justin and I speak that we can’t express elsewhere. It pays tribute to not just doom, but to all the styles of music we love, and the immersive/cinematic quality of fully realized albums. The songs are heavy, dreary, and dreamy. What more could you ask for?”
