OCEANS OF SLUMBER
"AETHERIAL"
Self Released

OCEANS OF SLUMBER is a Houston, Texas based band playing a very advanced style of
Metal music. When I say advanced, I mean they are doing something unlike the masses and
doing it with ease. These guys have a strong Metal foundation, but there are so many
different levels when you delve further into their sound. The music has a definite Progressive
Metal style and sound, but they add on to this in many ways. There are elements of Power,
Death, Doom, Black, Thrash & Traditional Heavy Metal all present in their sound. They
take each of these influences and melt them together as one where you never know when one
style will end and one will begin. I really dig the smooth transition from one style to the
other a lot. They even add in some trippy space psychedelic parts to add more depth and
atmosphere. These guys amazed me with each new song. I couldn't wait to get to the next
track, just to see what they were going to do next. The vocals follow the same path as the
music. Most of the time the vocals are done in a mid ranged melodic Progressive Metal style
with some harsher more Thrash like vocals, then the Death Metal & Black Metal growls
would come in. This is one highly talented band that was looking for a label at the time of
this release. I am hoping they have found one, because their music needs to be brought to the
masses. If you were to mix together parts of
ALICE IN CHAINS, RUSH, ANTHRAX
(John Bush era),
SOUNDGARDEN, MESHUGGAH, CYNIC, DIMMU BORGIR &
DAATH
together you'd get a good taste of what OCEANS OF SLUMBER have to offer!
