rikm Collecting singles, remixes, rare tracks and more, "In Dark Dreams" is a phenomenal collection of work by one of the most prolific and impressive projects in the Darkwave genre.

Covering 35 years of music, "In Dark Dreams" is a testimony to the creativity and longevity of Attrition's work. There are club ready dance tracks here, abstract art pieces, and utterly terrifying instrumentals. all fully displaying Attrition's skill and their expertise in many forms...

Uncle Brains Attrition's prolific and courageous 35-year path through the realms of dark electronic music (both the dance-oriented and the ambient currents) is perfectly documented in this anthology. Driving beats, string samples, intense vocals (both the growling male, and the opera-like female), merge into surgically crafted songs and atmospheres. Favorite track: What Shall I Sing?.

I have seen my dream that they call hallucination, I have glimpsed my hopes far beyond the horizon. Now it shares my thoughts and breathes my air in, As it stops me running from a misty vision. It takes over and engulfs all I become this formless entity. I have climbed the peak to seek new sensation, Can't retrace my steps, trapped in my own creation. Travelled in time, can't think how I used to, Less confused than then yet more questions to answer. In day dreams In dark dreams In dreamsleep.

I'll take you by the hand and make you one And leave you by the river when I'm done And walk across the water to the sun... Two Gods... Bet on two Gods I'm naked and I'm hungry in my room I'm tearing arms from deities for fun This hell is like a holiday, with guns... Two Gods Bet on two Gods I'll bring a little magic to your room And pass to the assassin who has none He's taking out the tyrant, for his son Two Gods Bet on two Gods Two Gods Are better than one...
