The metal band, Oceans of Slumber, just finished up their North American tour dates with Evergrey, Voyager and Borealis. They did an exclusive blog for us while on this tour. You can check out the first blog, with photos, after the break.
To go with this amazing food, we needed amazing music. Our playlist includes…
Disincarnate- Dreams of the Carrion Kind
The Faceless- Autotheism
Faith No More- King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime/ Angel Dust
John Coltrane- Giant Steps
Toronto started off our time in Canada stupendously. A great turnout at The Opera House really got everyone’s energies up after the long haul and was a nice indication of the enthusiasm to come.
We were rattled a bit returning to the states and beginning again in New York City. Let’s just say parking is a night mare and we were not very good at getting it right. However the incredible fans at Webster Hall in the Marlin Room made up for all of that!

At this point we were well into the second half of our tour. With only a few more shows left, we quickly moved through Pennsylvania, Virginia, and finished up in North Carolina. We managed to make some great new fans and even to meet them again once at ProgPower.
Speaking of ProgPrower, what an incredible first two days it’s been! Voyager did an amazing set performing their album “I am the reVolution” in its entirety, and Evergrey bringing a heartfelt performances both full set and acoustically the following morning.
We have been truly privileged to have shared so many good times with these bands (Evergrey, Voyager, and Borealis) and we were happy ourselves to have shared a special set on the tour with them back in Charolette, NC where we performed Kashmir from our Blue EP.
We look forward to the remainder of shows here at ProgPower and have been fortunate to have several of our family and friends make it out here as well. We will be catching up on some R&R and great music!
Shows we look forward to here at ProgPower: Riverside and Anathema
