Dream of an Opium Eater is a special collaboration originally created by invitation for Roskilde Festival.

For one hour on the evening of 07.07.07, a collection of horror films was
accompanied by original musical score of an unsettling and epic nature.

Since then the band has also appeared at the Carling Leeds Festival UK 2007,
Wacken Open Air 2008 and Roadburn festival 2010.

Back in the old days, a pianist usually accompanied screenings of silent films. With Dream of an Opium Eater, a handful of ace metal musicians carry on this tradition. They play intense metal to a number of horror short films projected on a screen above them. In this way, they will bathe all ears and eyes in icy horror and fright. as the surreal and disturbing images on the screen find a parallel in the guitar-borne nightmare from the speakers..

The musicians are Ben Calvert from Killing Joke, Ivar S. Peersen from Enslaved,
Reuben Gotto from Twin Zero / Johnny Truant and Julia Ruzicka from Million Dead.
