OCEANS OF SLUMBER – RELEASE COVER VERSION OF “HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN”, TAKEN FROM “STARLIGHT AND ASH”
“With leanings and inspirations from the Texas/Louisiana border, we felt that this cover was a perfect fit to the storytelling essence of the album,“ says OCEANS OF SLUMBER about their version of “House Of The Rising Sun”. “Going back to the female perspective of the song’s original version, we capture the troubled story of a traveler along the coast.” “

Fronted by the inimitable power, range, and grace of vocalist Cammie Beverly, “Starlight and Ash” posits OCEANS OF SLUMBER in a league of their own. This is as much eloquent extensions of famed singer-songwriters Nick Cave and Chris Stapleton as it is the heartbreaking pulse of Type O Negative and Katatonia. “Starlight and Ash” isn’t Metal, but its edges are. The album was produced by Joel Hamilton (Violet Road, Battle of Mice) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Yes, Voivod). Its stunning artwork was created by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Heaven Shall Burn and many more).
