    BEVERINA and CASUS BELLI MUSICA present a re-release of GOLDEN DAWN’s album “The Art Of Dreaming”!

    Certainly one of the best albums of the second wave of black metal will be released on vinyl after 22 years!

    “The Art Of Dreaming” is extraordinary and furious symphonic black metal from Stefan Traunmüller (a.k.a. Dreamlord), a member of Austrian Black Metal Syndicate.
    The album’s calling card is its verified studio sound and deep atmosphere, clear rhythm section; its keyboards, unobviously diverse, for this style, and “pre-dosed application” of clean vocal.

    It is worth mentioning in particular that the original master tape was used for the vinyl production. Digital remastering was not done! As for the album design, Stefan Traunmüller claims that the cover art finally looks like it should have looked two decades ago.

    The release will be interesting for the fans of BAL-SAGOTH, early ENID, SUMMONING and PAZUZU.

Deep in the corners of your innermost dreams Chaos is order and nothing as it seems You gather with reason and rational brain But these weapons remain blunt, you are slowly getting insane A trip between galaxies and black holes Is what one can experience inside one's soul The projection of cosmos makes up every cell Not outside but inwards we should dwell Above is as below, the ideosynchronicity is the secrecy I've finally understood that outside is but a shadow Of what is inside of me If one dreams his dream alone it is all his own Hallucinating fantasy The way we all dream at day and ourselves betray Is called reality
Empty is the world that's known to you I left it behind, to eternity I broke through Thousand times I dreamt and woke up in my bed One time in another dream, on earth I was dead I know of seven gates of dreaming That one can enter into a separate reality Not in ordinary dreams, they are not as the seem Nothing real, the dreamer's fantasy But if the dreamer starts to get control Entities of other dimensions cross his way His dreambody awakes and the wings of his soul But woe to those not strong enough, a deadly price they pay
You are out in the cold night, inside my magic desert realm Fright is your guide Spirits, astral entities, yet common sense you overwhelms You flee and do not see You are save but small inside your reason-moulded world I'll make you fall, out of yourself you will be hurled Demons wander, souls materialize, now you can't explain No more time for lies! You've crossed the border where all words end Only yesterday you said it was nothing but the wind... There is so much between heaven and earth How can you declare that it has no worth The tyrant within you is your only hint He makes you believe that it's all nothing but the wind
I've drowned in peace for so many years Raping my human nature with thousand worthless tears I kneeled before the throne of self-pityness Now I dwell in unpersonal darkness I resort to the sword and its supreme law Confess to a way of life genuine and raw Existence is battle and battle is my life Timidity shall fade, the strong survive Deny the word and worship the deed Only action into freedom leads! Mind is the source of creativity But the sword has to eradicate what used to be
In the sight of eternity I realize my present state A leaf in the storm of time Drifting to the final gate In the sight of eternity Our worries are but a sigh In the great chorus of unity We join into when we die
Cast into a life I don't want to live The way of Tonal has nothing to give Narrow is your horizon, your reason's border I step beyond your deceptive order You rest in the eye of a raging storm And think that the world is safe and warm But the surges of death erode your isle of peace And will extinguish your flicker when life has ceased I won't remain hiding in the cave where shadows dance Only the lightning of magic the distortion ends The storm, it rages but when my time has come I won't fade away The powers of Nagual sorcery are here to stay
