The new masterpiece from the Texan progressive metal sensation Oceans Of Slumber!

Love. Loss. Struggle. Surrender. The Journey. The End.

It's all here, on Oceans Of Slumber's long-awaited third album. The sound of shattered dreams and epic nightmares, every sinew alive and vital but never flexing far from death's shadow. The sound of a blossoming creative force rising from pain's pitch-black fog to blaze and rage in hopeful, starlit skies. The sound of The Banished Heart: an extraordinary record born amid troubled times.

"It was decided around the spring of last year that we should start working on our new record as soon as we returned from the Enslaved tour November of 2016," recalls the Texan band's drummer, producer and co-songwriter Dobber Beverly. "We landed in Houston on November 15th. I was right in the middle of a brutal and messy separation with my spouse of 18+ years, with whom I have a child, my pride and joy. Cammie [Gilbert, vocalist] lost her father to cancer about seven years ago and we both found a place of refuge with each other. We'd had the same experiences and we had the same outlook. I'm the musical director and she is fully the lyricist for Oceans Of Slumber now. We needed a new record, and so this album became a profound statement about our lives over the last two years. It became a telling of souls. It was Cammie reaching out to me, her finding me, and me toiling in absolute darkness searching for her."

A darker, heavier and more elaborate work than Winter, the band's critically-acclaimed 2015 album, The Banished Heart portrays Oceans Of Slumber as creative souls in the midst of a creative and emotional splurge, lost in the act of venting and purging through some of the deepest and darkest music the metal underground has conjured in years. Although still proudly channelling the melancholy spirit of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s UK death/doom scene, Oceans have evolved and expanded in myriad new directions, embracing a more grandiose aesthetic in tandem with an enhanced sense of emotional volatility and rawness. Epic by design and in execution, but acutely personal and intimate on a conceptual level, the songs on The Banished Heart showcase a refined musical vision from a band with nothing but honesty and honour in their souls.

Female frontwoman, 5 piece from Texas.
