  •'s not quite SW but it's closer than The Dreaming IMO.
  • this band was awesome one of my faves than you stabbing westward for badass music through the years
  • I seriously miss this this band...and no, The Dreaming are not a proper replacement.
  • SW is another good band, like Revis, that I wish were still making music these days.
  • higher quality photos added. or

  • The full version of Alone by The Dreaming just dropped today...has an Ungod feel, fairly decent.
  • I grew up listening to this band. Fuck, I really miss the 90s industrial rock bands.[2]
