"Her voice is a dream", "Crazy playing technique", "Perfection", "Damn, that's awesome" are just a few of the countless Youtube comments on the songs of the progressive metalers Oceans Of Slumber from Texas, whose singer Cammie Gilbert has turned the heads of many a music lover out there. Like the similarly positioned middle Opeth, this newcomer sensation combines extreme metal influences especially from Death Metal with doomy heaviness and classic rock elements as well as a lot of soul and melancholy. The influences are underpinned by the beguiling "Nights In White Satin" cover or the new interpretations of songs by Candlemass, Emperor, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd on the previous "Blue EP". But their true brilliance to multiply metallic force with feeling finds its climax in pieces like the dramatic "Winter" or "Suffer The Last Bridge" and should immediately please fans of daring, atmospheric prog metals.
