OCEANS OF SLUMBER premiere new video, “Sunlight”


Houston’s OCEANS OF SLUMBER have unveiled a brand new video for “Sunlight” which comes from their full length label debut, Winter released earlier this year.

Filmed in a studio while the band performs the song, “Sunlight” perfectly reflects OCEANS OF SLUMBER’s raw ethereal power radiating from the studio to the stage.

Watch “Sunlight” here:

On September 29th, OCEANS OF SLUMBER joins the “Spinning Wheel Ritual” tour featuring ENSLAVED. Tour dates will also include two Euroblast Festival appearances (feat. Intronaut, Port Noir and more) in addition to select show dates with Ne Obliviscaris.

8 out of 10 live review in Metal Hammer UK for their My Dying Bride support show:

“This is the first time OCEANS OF SLUMBER have played in the UK, and despite an initial lack of guitars through the PA, they could hardly do much more to win over a potentially partisan audience. Singer Cammie Gilbert is a star (albeit one who could do with speaking a bit more loudly and clearly between songs) and her bandmates’ prog metal explorations provide her with a vivid and dramatic backdrop. From a surging Winter to a final, spinetingling reading of Nights In White Satin, this is a triumphant first foray on these shores. They will be back and you won’t want to miss them.” – Dom Lawson.

Winter, the highly acclaimed release from  OCEANS OF SLUMBER is available at all music retailers including:

CM Distro:


This is a spectacular metal record that wanders with ease and grace between thunderously extreme black and death metal through contemplative doomy crush and into mind-expanding prog.  – METAL HAMMER 

“Winter” is, at times, introspective, emotional, adventurous and dark-it’s a thrilling listen. – AFROPUNK 

Oceans of Slumber is a band that truly understands the essence of progressive music and the songcraft required to make a great album…as alluded to, much of the magic of Winter lies within its songcraft; that, and Gilbert’s angelic, haunting and powerful voice.  – METAL INJECTION

Whether you favor this sort of metal or not is inconsequential – there are albums that hit, and then there are albums that hit you; Winter is one of the latter. No other band is making music like Oceans, no one comes close to their level of skill and technical expertise, and this album will prove it. – HOUSTON PRESS
