Biography

U.K.-based band, formed in 1990 by Col Lowing (vocals), Sid Bratley (guitar and keyboard), Gordon Young (guitar and keyboards), and Karl North (ex Rosetta Stone) (bass guitar). Their musical style combined elements of goth, industrial, rock, and electronic.

The band sold over 16,000 albums in their history, with their last studio album, Asphyxia, rated at 8/10 in Rock Sound magazine, 4K in Kerrang! and 8.5 in Terrorizer.

Mick Mercer’s Hex Files: The Goth Bible (1996) described the Dream Disciples as “one of the hardest working bands around.” This was partly due to the bands extensive touring around Europe, which included the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, and the Czech Republic. In 2001 they played at the Eurorock festival (in Neerpelt, Belgium); they also headlined the Whitby Gothic Weekend (England) , playing a total of four times, with a final performance in April 2004.

Dream Disciples split up in 2004. Sid has a solo project; Black Wave Project.

    I would call them "Anthem Goth" in the style of: The sisters of mercy, the cult, The mission, Rosetta stone!

    Great name, great music. Saw them 3 times, first in 1992, and I'm gutted they split up. Live they were AWESOME. Some members of the band are still playing together as Transaudio but I wasn't too impressed with what I heard from the new group. I recommend everything by DD but especially Asphyxia.
