“We embrace the harshness of our climate, environment, people, our music scenes, and the pride there-in,” says drummer Dobber Beverly of Texans Oceans of Slumber. “From country to jazz to extreme metal and everything in between. Most of us are kids of the ‘90s and we were raised on Stevie Ray Vaughan, King’s X, Watchtower, Pantera, Absu, Imprecation, etc. So, we’ve definitely got state pride and are very proud of our wonderful hometown Houston and its blossoming music culture.”

If the phrases “Don’t mess with Texas”, “Everything’s bigger in Texas”, and “This ain’t my first rodeo” sound cliché, well, they might be. But they describe Oceans of Slumber perfectly. The Houston-based sextet are profoundly great musicians—check out their stirring interpretation of Emperor’s “The Wanderer” called “The Emperor”—the vocals of front woman Cammie Gilbert are bigger than life, and they were smart enough to resolutely ignore the advances of several labels that weren’t the right fit. Indeed, Oceans of Slumber are Texas to the core.

Indeed, Oceans of Slumber’s new album, Winter, is a deft amalgam of all things melodic, complex, heavy, atmospheric, and forward-thinking. Whereas Aetherial was more of a test—to see how the group would gel—Winter is the product of focus.
In 2018, the new full length "The Banished Heart" is released.
