Great album
(4 out of 5 stars)

"good creepy fun. rozz is in top form, but eva o's songs aren't that great, the one where she sings like a cartoon ghost is unitentionally hillarious. Jill Emery from Hole plays bass on this album. fans of christians death's "only theatre of pain" should give this a listen, you'll like it."
Devils at your doorstep...
Draconis Blackthorne | The Haunted Noctuary | 03/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Evocative, nefarious, morbid...

If the cover is any indication to its content, DFTD is truly a darkly psychodramatic creation accessing all those subconscious fears in a melancholy horror-oriented style, definitely eviliving up to its aesthetic presentation. I first became familiar with this opus from an acquaintance, and remember it being quite harmonically morbid, at once graceful and chaotic, truly embodying the essence of so-called "Death Rock", yet with a rather theatrical 'satanic' bent, in this case.

Dreams For The Dying combines hypnotically-Gothic melodies with a moderate Metal influence, blended with haunting lyrics and vocals from both legends Eva O and Rozz Williams {RIP}, remaining a veritable Musickal sin-thesis of L'Air Epais / Messe Noir whose successive chapters lead to Luciferian liberation through sacriligeous stimulation.

Beginning with the strains of the organ as if to begin a sinister service, 'Static Jesus' admonishes the nazarene ideal's odious characteristics, providing an apt starting point by identifying the stasis inherent in the delusional anti-life foolosophy.

'Thy Kingdom Come' carries the classic elements of The Black Mass by modifying the 'Our Father'. A ponderours piece worth contemplation.

'Knight Stalker' [sic] is deadicated to one Richard Ramirez, complete with quotes. The infamous devil-worshipping serial killer whose bloodlust claimed numerous victims.

The remarkably imaginative 'Holding You Close' is actually quite a deeply dark romantic canticle, at the point of view of a lovelorn coffin 'embracing' its occupant.

To Me, Dreams For The Dying grants the impression of a sort of demonic Addams Family perspective set to Doom Rock, complete with shilgne backward masking...

Blasphemous anthems, nefarious diatribes, heavy guitar work, the pervasive ghostly organ, classical instrumentation, evocative melodies with diabolically-potent samples accentuate these gloom-laden orchestrations to create quite a memorable album, which manages to manifest an ambiance akin to flickering candlelight casting ghastly shadows and reflections of dancing devils.

Shadow Project was an outgrowth of Christian Death, which defined the Gothic genre and released the infernal trinity of self-titled 'Shadow Project', 'Dreams For The Dying', and 'From The Heart':"
A visionistic sophomore effort
Ric the Obscene ( | Danville, IL | 07/27/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The sophomore effort from the Shadow Project resounds with potential. The release focusses on trauma ballads. The ballads are very well written and the haunting quality is still there, and I certainly recommend it to any hard core Goth fan."
