Sounds | Oceans of Slumber - Poem of Fire

Hoe geniaal is dit? Tja, als je de über-getalenteerde Dobber Beverly zijn ding laat doen, dan mag je je wel aan iets héél speciaals verwachten. Deze compositie dient als teaser voor het nieuwe album van de Texaanse progressive metal band. Van een teaser gesproken: WTF en WOW tegelijk! Meer krijg je niet uit me, behalve dit nog ... luisteren verdikke!


The end of each year is a welcome time for reflection. Oceans of Slumber have spent the winter immersed in the vibrant lifeblood of Bogotá, Colombia. They've have wrapped themselves in the city's intense emotions of longing. But after signing to Season of Mist in 2023, the progressive metal band are also embracing the powerful force of change while recording their new album.

Be enthralled by "Poem of Fire". This piano medley collects the themes from Oceans of Slumber's upcoming sixth album into a single, solitary movement that stands as a monument to resilience and uncertainty. It was written and performed by the band's multi-instrumentalist Dobber Beverly. With roots in grindcore and black metal as the drummer for both Insect Warfare and Necrofier, Beverly's musical prowess knows no bounds. 

“Our universal love for film composers like Zimmer and Richter has cemented a place where cinematic music can flourish in the realm of progressive metal", says Beverly. "And that’s a place where we’ve been existing for years.  

"I’ve been studying newer composers like Arvo Pärt and Ludivico Einaudi trying to see what fuses modernism with later era romantic music (my favorite!) and figuring out how I can inject more of it into our work.  

"I’ve been tasked with making more piano music by Season of Mist President Michael Berberian as a dare and I’ve taken various themes from our new record and made an overarching thematic piano piece that I hope you’ll enjoy.”
