Interview With Cammie Beverly Of “Oceans Of Slumber”

Oceans Of SlumberFounded in 2013 with the debut of Aetherial, but truly blossoming upon the arrival of vocalist Cammie Gilbert for 2015’s Blue EP and the full-length albums Winter (2016) and 2020’s self-titled album, Oceans Of Slumber re-emerge in 2022 with Starlight And Ash, which marks a new creative direction for Oceans Of Slumber, as they delve into a more melodic, Southern Gothic-style sound. The new full-length album masterfully redefines the band’s sound for a new era. The band’s album The Banished Heart was featured on Metal Hammer’s “50 Best Albums of 2018” list and Metal Insider added The Banished Heart to their “Best Metal Albums of the Decade” list and the band was lauded as the “female fronted Opeth” by Noisey. They have toured with Insomnium, Enslaved, Swallow The Sun and more. Cammie was featured on the new Ayreon record Transitus. She was also named as one of Bandcamp’s “Ten of Metal’s Most Powerful Vocalists“.
