3 stars Big improvement, yet nothing out of the ordinary.

There's a big leap between Into Eternity's debut album and Dead or Dreaming yet still following the same formula of death metal with progressive metal. We can hear that there are some little improvements that make their music sound a lot better like major musical arrangements and especially additional vocals though Tim Roth still has main vocal duties. Into Eternity still have a long way to go as I said before in the review of their debut, and yet still some of the rhythms and melodies of the album feel a bit similar to those of their debut albums, especially the instrumental parts, which may feel improved at times, but still feel similar. Having said that some songs like Elysium Dream and Unholy (Fields of the Dead) manage to have some original and different melodies (to make a stand out for the album) in which you can determine which song is which instead of thinking that you're listening to the same song again. Tim Roth has improved a lot on vocals and Daniel Nargang provides incredible vocals, but Tim's "death grunts" or "screech" gets a bit annoying and makes the music no good to listen. There are still some pretty decent and good moments in songs like Unholy (Fields of the Dead), Elysium Dream which is the most outstanding song of the album, Imagination Overdose & the album title track and make the album worth a while. The album isn't that good but still finds a way to greatly execute its music. In overall the album is much better than the first one but nothing far from great, a slight improvement of the previous but nothing really special or out of the ordinary to listen here, yet it is still worth listening to.

It's a 3.5
