My Infinite Kingdom - Ecstasies over Dreaming Lady album '95


Now, this is a band I've always loved! My Infinite Kingdom was a band from Toruń, Poland formed in 1993 and they've only released this full-length album and one rehearsal demo tape before splitting up. Members were involved in various great Polish bands such as North, Neasit, Selossed, Fight and Grom - I've listened to all of these bands many times and really love all of them.

Ecstasies over Dreaming Lady is a truly amazing album. The style is  melancholic melodic/gothic/dark black metal and this album is in my opinion important part of the Polish black metal history. If I had to compare My Infinite Kingdom's music to some bands, I'd say it reminds of Godkiller, Nidhoggr, Love Lies Bleeding and Burzum. The album is atmospheric with plenty of interesting synths and I really can't recommend this enough. It's just a very, very powerful and unique album, and one of my all time favorite albums.

  1. Thanks for sharing this tape rip and all the others you've uploaded so far. There's some great artists I've discovered thanks to your blog.

    Regarding this album specifically, the vocals are a bit higher-pitched than I prefer, but the music behind the vocals kicks ass and makes up for it. I dig the gothic atmosphere too.

  2. Again I lost the comment I first wrote?! Damn it, something wrong with the preview or is it because of a pause while doing it?

    Anyways, not going to try to recreate what I initially typed, I'll just mention this album has a special place in my heart and I'm enough of a fanboy to have it both as CD and cassette. Sounds quite unique in my opinion but then again it could be nostalgia clouding my judgement. It clouds easily.

    Oh yeah, did a field test, preview for some reason clears the text away. Wonder if it's a browser issue?

    1. Hm, I don't know what the problem is and why your comments disappear from time to time :/

      I never do previews when commenting, I usually just use notepad. I actually use notepad for many things, useful little thing.

      Heh, yeah it's one of those albums I keep coming back to, very special for me as well.

      It maybe doesn't make much sense, but for me this band was kind of like Polish version of Burzum, or Strid so to say... they just made their own thing, made music which sounded like no other band in Poland in '95, so this album is a classic and I always enjoy it, it will never become boring to me.
