“In my humble opinion, Dreaming Dead might just be the best thing to happen to the LA underground metal scene, and all you need to do in order to reach the same conclusion is listen to “Midnightmares”.”
"...consider Dreaming Dead to be one of the underground’s current diamonds in the rough. On Midnightmares, they give credence to the notion that there’s plenty of fight left in the North American progressive death metal scene".
““Midnightmares” is fantastic display of a band that brought all their influences to the table and crafted something that will be remembered instead of passed over and forgotten with all the many other death metal releases.”
“Midnightmares is a very instrument-heavy album, which mainly consists of perfectly played guitar and delivers superb double bass. Tempo and Riffwechsel determine the main picture, which to put yourself in a kind of "roller coaster of change".”
“DREAMING DEAD are on, it's easy to see world domination in their future.”
"Within One is 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."
"The Force is strong with this one. When they come roaring back, the impact is that much more. That they've learned this on their debut is absolutely stunning."
