This is modern heavy metal in collision with soaring, dynamic melodies wrapped in a tapestry of percolating ambience. With a heavy dose of epic thematic musical structure, this is music that makes a bold and powerful statement. As the enigmatic and mysterious name suggests, Oceans of Night is a modern rock band - equal parts progressive metal and modern rock wrapped around powerful vocal melodies and evocative guitar work served with a distinct ambient flavor.
Domain is the second CD release from the hybrid progressive metal band, Oceans of Night. Following up The Shadowheart Mirror in 2009 (and 4 previous CDs recorded eponymously under the Scott Mosher name), Domain features a continued and refined focus on the staples of the Oceans of Night sound: modern heavy metal colliding with soaring, dynamic melodies wrapped in a tapestry of percolating ambience. With a heavy dose of epic thematic musical structure, this is music that makes a bold and powerful statement.
Rising from the ashes of the eponymous solo band lead by musical mastermind Scott Mosher, from 1996 through 2004, Oceans of Night also features vocal powerhouse Scott Oliva (Live After Death, The Nightmare Stage, Inner Strength, Driven). Oceans of Night released their dark and crushing debut CD, The Shadowheart Mirror, in June of 2009. The new CD, to be released in the summer of 2011, promises to be a haunting, dynamic and epic musical statement... and you can cash those words in at your local bank.
Through the course of 6 CD’s, multi-instrumentalist Scott Mosher has bridged the worlds of progressive metal, melodic hard rock and ambient music to create an experimental yet complimentary style of ambient metal that is at once as subtle as it is powerful, aggressive as it is dynamic and timeless as it is modern. Scott Oliva continues to perform in the legendary NY Iron Maiden tribute band, Live After Death and The Nightmare Stage. He has also written, performed and recorded with Wind Wraith, Inner Strength, Last Vision Black and Driven. The Scott’s had first worked together on Mr. Mosher’s 4th CD release, Deep Horizon, in 2006. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/oceansofnight2
