Austrian ensemble Dreams of Sanity straddled the worlds of gothic rock and rock, exploring the marriage of traditional music and rock, intense metallic and angelic feminine lead vocals, some years before that format became the soup du jour of Western european metal. Produced in 1991, the music group underwent numerous account changes on the ensuing years, but after refining its audio with a set of demos, vocalists Sandra Schleret and Martina Hornbacher, guitarists Christian Marx and Andreas Wildaur, keyboardist Stephan Manges, bassist Michael Knoflach, and drummer Romed Astner documented their 1997 debut, Komödia, for regional Hall of Sermon Information. An idea piece motivated by Dante’s Divine Humor, this established the stage for extra album-length thematic companies like 1999’s Masquerade (in line with the Phantom from the Opera) and 2000’s THE OVERALL GAME (a tale from the band’s very own devising). Both these highlighted new associates Frederic Heil (keyboards) and Harald Obexer (drums), as well as the initial saw visitor vocalist Tilo Wolff (also who owns their record firm, curiously more than enough!) subbing for Hornbacher, who acquired just departed to become listed on Korova. That ill-advised combination of business and artwork may have eventually added to Hall of Sermon’s falling from the music group, which subsequently split up in 2002.
