Oneiroid Psychosis - Fantasies About Illness (1996)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Oneiroid Psychosis - Stillbirth (1995)
Oneiroid Psychosis - Garden of Remembrance (1999)
Oneiroid Psychosis - DREAMS (With Pollutions When Virile) (2002)

It's the spookiest time of the year, kiddies. And if you're a longtime reader, you might know what that means: it's time to listen to Oneiroid Psychosis, an absurdly goth-y, synth-driven darkwave band whose music is pretty much the aural essence of Halloween. They have a song called "Midnight Mist", for crying out loud. Fantasies About Illness is their second album, and it's fucking perfect.

Track listing:
1. Psychasthene
2. Assuage
3. Midnight Mist
4. Box
5. Apostasy
6. Influence of Organism
7. Symbion
8. Obscurum Per Obscurius
9. Arise and Pass Away
10. Somnambulus
11. The Micro-Implant Conspiracy

Lying on my bed thinking that I see
Something moving in the corner but it's darkness everywhere
