about

“Umbra” was recorded, mixed and mastered in Entasis Studios in Athens, Greece, from February to June 2018. The excellent co-operation between the band and producer Nikos Papakostas resulted in an alcohol-fueled, “ditch the metronome and keep it loud” approach to DreamLongDead’s sound. Standard elements, such as the double vocal attack, the crushing guitars, the pounding rhythm section and the storytelling mood of the lyrics, are still present;however a few innovations are being introduced this time.The songs are shorter, denser and faster at certain points, there’s also a grind music shot plus a melodic instrumental track that adds up to the overall cinematic horror feeling of this record.

The album features a haunting cover by the Polish surrealist artist Zdzisław Beksiński. Kamil Śliwiński (administrator of the official Facebook page of Zdzisław Beksiński) says: “This painting of Beksiński was made in the 1970’s in Sanok, Poland. Then the artwork was sold to a German collector, who unfortunately destroyed the original by cutting it into several pieces. To this day, we don't know how it looked in color”.

Guest musicians on “Umbra”:
Nikos Papakostas: Additional lead guitar on “No Grave Deep Enough” & harmony guitar on “El Ritmode la Tierra”.
Makis Petratos: Synthesizers on “You gotta be fuckin' kidding”.

Track Name: No Grave Deep Enough(The Ballad of a Tall Man)
Boy,
How did you get here, do you know who I am?
Eternal undertaker, the harvester of man
Phasmatic wraith, morbid saint
Deflagration none be saved

I’m reaping all the living, devouring their souls
I pillage your existence, on an on
From beyond, horror born
Non-dimensional predator

A sanctuary of morbid dreams, there is no place like morgue
The open caskets are the chains to bind you to my world
The dead shall rise, suffer (un-)life
Horridcultured afterlife

An alien miracle of death
The portal where dimensions bend
Welcome to your funeral...

Dig ‘em - Here comes the tall man
Dig ‘em up - Come on my little ones
Dig ‘em - A passage to the void
No grave deep enough

Little and brown and low to the ground, my army of ghouls will hunt you down
Into the hearse, I’m shrinking your flesh, for I am your master now
Noctabulant, ghoulish hunt
Hearse no haven for the damned

A silver sphere to your head
A brain-dead slave ‘till the end
Your funeral has begun…

Dig ‘em - Here comes the tall man
Dig ‘em up - Come on my little ones
Dig ‘em - A passage to the void
No grave deep enough

Dig ‘em - In absence of all light
Dig ‘em up - A scenery for fainted eyes
Dig ‘em - I’m on a killing spree
No grave deep enough

Bowed down to devastation, broken down by annihilation
This nightmare is for real
Reign in agony, reign in fear

Bowed down to devastation, broken down by annihilation
Succumb to all your fears
Reign in agony, reign in fear

I am the child of night
Surrender to my might

Human prey is all I crave for
Vulgar despot for aeons to come
