Released: 5 June 2022

blooding mask – autopsy of a dream
powerful vocals combined with diverse melodies
Blooding Mask released their new album “Autopsy Of A Dream,” which is a very different album from others that I have recently listened to.

It is very haunting with its powerful vocals combined with diverse melodies that are at times haunting and leave you with chills down your spine.

The vocal range and change in style by singer Maethelyiah is imposing from quiet and soothing to almost operatic and, at times, spine chilling.

So take the challenge, embark on a journey of unexpected twists, and get this album. It is a great album and well worth adding to your collection.



Esoteric electronic project Blooding Mask announce imminent presale of  ‘Autopsy of a Dream’, the 5th studio album which is due to be released on the 10th September’s full moon. The album will seal the 30 year anniversary of what turned from a one woman band into currently a duo featuring Maethelyiah and Paul Nash, founder of The Danse Society. 

Just like the previous albums, “Autopsy of a Dream” introduces tracks ranging between, and merging, electronica, industrial, symphonic, classical, apocalyptic pop and esoteric prog. Hard to categorise the tracks feature mainly strong atmospheric synths, Paul’s legendary guitars as well as Maethelyiah’s trademark vocal multi octave choirs and tribal drums. Some sonic experiments are also present, evoking powerful images for the public to see and interpret. The track “L’Incubo” is also on the main score of Italian film “Upside Down” directed by Luca Tornatore. The album has so far been described as a ‘symphony of horror’ and also as ‘a selection of incredible songs from The Tower of Babel’ (due to the multiple languages used on the tracks). 

The previous albums have been compared to Kate Bush, Dead Can Dance, Diamanda Galas and Annie Lennox, however none of these singers sound like the others. 

It’s a riddle and the answer is in the 17 tracks of “Autopsy of a Dream”.


Das esoterische Elektronikprojekt Blooding Mask kündigt den bevorstehenden Vorverkauf von "Autopsy of a Dream" an, dem 5. Studioalbum, das am 10. September im Vollmond erscheinen soll. Das Album wird das 30-jährige Jubiläum dessen besiegeln, was sich von einer Ein-Frau-Band in ein derzeit ein Duo mit Maethelyiah und Paul Nash, Gründer der Danse Society, verwandelt hat.

Genau wie die vorherigen Alben führt "Autopsy of a Dream" Tracks ein, die zwischen Electronica, Industrial, symphonic, Classic, apocalyptic Pop und esoteric Prog reichen und zusammenführen. Schwer zu kategorisieren sind die Tracks mit hauptsächlich starken atmosphärischen Synthesizern, Pauls legendären Gitarren sowie Maethelyiahs charakteristischen Gesangs-Multioktave-Chören und Stammesdrums. Einige klangliche Experimente sind ebenfalls vorhanden, die kraftvolle Bilder hervorrufen, die die Öffentlichkeit sehen und interpretieren kann. Der Track "L'Incubo" ist auch auf der Hauptmusik des italienischen Films "Upside Down" unter der Regie von Luca Tornatore. Das Album wurde bisher als "Symphonie des Horrors" und auch als "eine Auswahl unglaublicher Songs aus dem Turm zu Babel" beschrieben (aufgrund der vielen Sprachen, die auf den Tracks verwendet werden).

Die vorherigen Alben wurden mit Kate Bush, Dead Can Dance, Diamanda Galas und Annie Lennox verglichen, aber keiner dieser Sänger klingt wie die anderen.

Es ist ein Rätsel und die Antwort ist in den 17 Spuren von "Autopsie eines Traums".
