NOTE: We're sorry to announce the vinyl LP of Dreams in the Witch House is SOLD OUT - CDs are still available

Lovecraft's 1933 tale of a student whose dreams devolve into a horrific reality receives the biggest, baddest, boldest adaptation yet. Platform Studios, Polar Studios and the HP Lovecraft Historical Society joined forces to produce a rock opera concept album that will knock your socks off!

College student Walter Gilman takes up residence as a boarder in Arkham's legend haunted witch house. His room is where the 17th century accused witch, Keziah Mason once dwelt. Walter's studies of advanced mathematics and the intense dreams he experiences in the house lead him to a world where reality and nightmare merge. Has Keziah Mason returned with her demonic rat-like familiar Brown Jenkin, or are Walter's studies into extra-dimensional mathematics pushing him over the brink into a world of mind wrenching horrors?

This intercontinental collaboration joins producers Chris Laney, bamboosway, RingMan and Lennart Östlund with the HPLHS. The production's sixteen tracks feature seventeen singers, including Jody Ashworth (Trans Siberian Orchestra), Alaine Kashian (Broadway's Cats) and Swedish metal phenom Chris Laney as Brown Jenkin. The album features fourteen musicians, including Bruce Kulick (former KISS guitarist) and Douglas Blair Lucek (guitarist for W.A.S.P.) shredding on guitar.

This double disc gatefold album features two 180g. custom-made violet LP discs and spectacular large format cover art by Carlos Garcia Rivera and noted fantasy illustrator Keith Thompson. You'll even get the concept album on CD as part of the package. It's an extraordinary Lovecraftian musical event and an extraordinary collector's piece too!

The total running time for the LPs is 1:05:36.


The Dreams in the Witch House double LP is a 180-gram album, which is heavier than most records, and features a wide sonic range. It sounds best on a high-end turntable with a weighted/calibrated tone arm. Lower-end record players are sometimes not able to handle the deep grooves of the albums, which can result in skipping and/or popping, and the built-in speakers cannot fully reproduce the full dynamic range of the music. High-quality turntables and speaker systems will produce excellent audio from the Dreams in the Witch House LPs. Customers with lower-end turntables may have a better experience with the CD version.
