Oceans Of Slumber biography
Founded in Houston, Texas, USA in 2011

These Texans incorporate a wide range of influences into their progressive metal template, resulting in an act that's not exactly easy to classify. The diversity of musical backgrounds regarding the band members, from a drummer previously most notably known as the skin-basher for grindcore act INSECT WARFARE, to a degreed jazz guitarist, aids in establishing an overall package that infuses healthy amounts of everything from psychedelic rock to extreme metal ferocity into their sound.

With skillful musicianship and a diverse and passion-fueled vocalist, shades of FAITH NO MORE, OPETH, DREAM THEATER and SOUNDGARDEN can be heard in varying degrees throughout their work, establishing a versatility of style and mood, from the atmospheric melodies gracing a track such as ''Blackest Cloud'' to the off-kilter rage of their more ferocious offerings such as ''Remedy'' from their debut album ''Aetherial''. OCEAN OF SLUMBER's basis is metal, but their approach is beyond a doubt progressive. ''Aethereal'' was self-released in February 2013 with the band consisting of Ronnie ALLEN (vocals), Dobber BEVERLY (drums), Keegan KELLY (bass) and Anthony CONTRERAS and Sean GARY on guitars.

Review by J-Man
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Even as a pretty active listener, it's not often that I stumble upon an album that defies categorization as much as the debut observation from Oceans of Slumber. Entitled Aetherial, this early 2013 release could loosely be thrown under the 'extreme progressive metal' umbrella, but that does no justice to the sounds created by this young Texan act - everything from jazzy acrobatics and atmospheric progressive rock to lethal sludge riffs and frantic black metal is explored here, and Aetherial's ability to seamlessly blend these diverse soundscapes is breathtaking. The musicianship is remarkably tight across the board, and although the compositions are quite dense, Oceans of Slumber still crafts music that is highly atmospheric and even melodic. Aetherial sounds like the work of true professionals in every sense, serving as even more proof that great music is constantly being released without the help of a record label.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
