Posted a new song: "Drift Away (live)" http://www.reverbnation.com/c./poni/194531959 #music


“Of Dying Dreams gives metal a shot of originality. The band's sound is defined as a combination of death metal (best described as primal-sounding vocals, screaming guitar work, and heavy, painful lyrics) intermingled with lighter melodic vocals and harmonies. Sure, it sounds unlikely, but Of Dying Dreams makes the mix work. Clearly, this brand of hard head banging isn't for everybody and the core audience for this kind of music is pretty specialized; they generally enjoy the same bands—Sepultura and Fates Warning, for example. All four of the band members had a hand in arranging the band's original tunes, all of which are primarily penned by Scott Ingold. Certainly with song titles like "Trapped," "Pain," and "Of Dying Dreams," the main thrust of this music seems deep enough without even touching on heavies like politics or world hunger. If Of Dying Dreams play their cards right, they may one day sell out the Greensboro Coliseum, because metallic melodic angst sells.”

Q: didnt joe potts from individually twisted become guitar player for odd?
A: Why yes, in fact, he did. When Joe first joined Of Dying Dreams, after the departure of three of the original members, he played bass. He later switched to guitar and Chris Sealy joined as bass player, followed by the return of Chris Ferguson on vocals.
