Houston Progressive Metallers OCEANS OF SLUMBER Release Aetherial

On February 1st OCEANS OF SLUMBER self-released a progressive metal whirlwind called Aetherial. Labeling a band like OCEANS OF SLUMBER is never quite as easy as one would think. The Houston band features in its ranks the drummer of grind purists INSECT WARFARE (among many others), a degreed Jazz guitarist, and an all-around cast of “players’ players.” What results from this collective of skilled musicians and a broad cross section of influence is the adventurous Aetherial. Musical classification is of no interest to the band however. Instead, OCEANS OF SLUMBER create waves of stimulating atmosphere and use their talents to exploit the dynamics of the music, thereby creating the undeniably epic wall of sound that has become the Texans’ trademark. The person responsible for the mixing and mastering of Aetherial, UK madman Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, EVILE, etc.), had this to say about his work with Houston prog-metallers:


"Oceans of Slumber are of one of the top 10bands I've ever worked with. The perfect mixture of sheer brutality with ultimate musicianship taking you on a journey through music. Old school metal mixed with prog and psychedelia brought right up to date with cutting death metal and black metal influences. All my favorite stuff rolled into one!"


OCEANS OF SLUMBER are as comfortable drudging their way through doom-laden epic "Coffins Like Kites" as they are playing the caustic, country-tinged black metal of "Primordial," as well as shifting gears seamlessly into the soaring melodies of the KING CRIMSON inspired "Blackest Cloud" only to return to the sonic brutality that is the title track. Interpretation remains the province of the listener. With the intention of crossing every musical boundary, OCEANS OF SLUMBER creates an undeniable atmosphere of beauty and extremity with its very capable lineup of musicians.

Dawn of Dissolution
Dawn of Dissolution
Dawn Of Dissolution was formed late 2014 in Houston TX by Joseph Marduk and Andrew Amon. The purpose for the music itself is to incorporate elements of Melodic Death, Black, Folk, and Power Metal by adding symphonic, ambiance, and finally inspirations of traditional Northern European and East Asian cultures.

By late May, it was confirmed that Adrian Socaciu has taken the position as lead vocalist benefiting us to have the first EP 'Nightfrost' to be finally recorded and released.

By mid July, Cole Jones was confirmed to be positioned as drummer for Dawn Of Dissolution, taking us to the next step.

By late October, it was official that Vincent Mennella took the bass position bringing on the epic bass drops and chops finally finishing up the entire line-up.

Dawn Of Dissolution has two releases so far in the discography,
