The Dreaming I is a hypnotic vision of indescribable creatures, of the darkest sensations.
I personally discovered this album at a time when I was reading a lot of Lovecraft short stories. Years later, listening to "The Dreaming Eye" in particular still reminds me of Edward's visions in The Thing On the Doorstep.
If I had to compare this album to something else, i'd go with Dodsengel's "Mirium Occultum", for the dreadful atmosphere and the whole "communion with occult forces" thing, y'know.
Favorite track: The Dreaming Eye.
