Dream Unending – the duo Derrick Vella (Tomb Mold) and Justin DeTore (Innumerable Forms, Sumerlands) – have announced their new album Song of Salvation, out on November 11th via 20 Buck Spin.
The album’s first single “Secret Grief” features the guest talents of vocalist Phil Swanson and Leila Abdul-Rauf on trumpet, further widening the breadth of musical talent involved and the sweep of Song of Salvation‘s distinctive narrative. Dream Unending’s Derrick Vella comments: “‘Secret Grief’ feels like the most direct song on the album. It’s still got this otherworldly feel, or slightly out of a different time. Its got this hotel bar ballad feel, very plaintive. Phil really came through with his vocal offering, almost a wail at times. Leila’s trumpet is like a siren, it came out greater than I could have ever imagined. It’s a real pleasure to know such talented people that would be happy to place a role on this. Love the King’s X vibe on the riff before the solo comes in. Justin’s drumming is so strong, lots of conviction.”
