SUMMER 2014

Well, Ladies and Gentlement - it's finally here: MIDNIGHT RISING. You can check out song samples here, or here, and download a few full length tracks as well... You can purchase the CD here or here. And there's more to come. Special shout-outs to some special guests on MIDNIGHT RISING who gave up some amazing musical performances and survived to tell the tale: Vivien Lalu (a few keyboard solos here and there), Chris Rifkin (a kick ass guitar solo or two on 'The Burning Sky') and lastly but not leastly, Stephanie Warren, who contributed an awesome vocal performance on 'Reach Me' - I just hope she remembers me when she's eventually accepting a Grammy Award within 10 years. :)

SPRING 2014

The next Oceans of Night CD is currently being mixed and mastered by the more-than-capable Mr. Joey Vera. Expect MIDNIGHT RISING to manifest itself in May of 2014. Ready yourselves for sonic bliss thereafter. So, sooner than you can say that really long word from May Poppins (I can say it but I kinda feel a bit silly when I do) A few special guests... maybe a surprise or two... and the same killer ambient prog metal you'd expect from Mr. Scott Oliva and yours truly.

MARCH 2013

Lots of progress happening on Oceans of Night CD #3. I'd tell you more then someone would have to kill you... and we don't want that on our collective musical conscience. Rest assured, though, a few surprises, a guest appearance or two and of course, more killer ambient progressive metal madness coming your way... later than sooner!

FALL 2012

Stop the presses - we're working on music for the 3rd Oceans of Night CD (tentative release date: BEFORE August, 23rd, 2032!) Ok, seriously, hopefully, possibly, sometime in 2013. In fact if I wasn't 'busy' lollygagging around and typing these news updates, I probably could've written another song or two. Then again, with some of the song lengths in our past, maybe not. Rest assured, new Oceans of Night - sooner than later - just don't ask when sooner OR later is. :)

SPRING/SUMMER 2012

We have *a lot * of bases to cover, so bear with me for a few:

Check out the Press area for tons of reviews, interviews and some testimonials on Domain. You can also head on over to the CDBaby Oceans of Night/Scott Mosher store and pick up a few CDs... or twenty... or more. There's plenty to be had and it will make your life so much more complete, at least musically. The Oceans of Night Facebook page, likewise, is always a great place to stop by and investigate what's happening in the realms of the ambient prog metal music experience. We're also on iTunes (and have been since before iTunes even existed, whatever the hell THAT means.) There's another video review of Domain courtesy of the funky cats over at Grab Bag of Metal - check it, folks! In the wonderful world of printed periodicals (rumors of its demise have been greatly exaggerated), Domain has been reviewed in such illustrious magazines as CLASSIC ROCK PRESENTS - PROG!, PROGRESSION and FIREWORKS. Reviews are on the Press page (of course.)

MARCH-APRIL 2012

Posted a (figureatively, otherwise, I couldn't even pick up the mouse!) TON of reviews of DOMAIN. Also, check out the awesome live video review of DOMAIN by my friend Marcel Harster from Live Prog. Great stuff! There's also another live video review of DOMAIN from Jeff Rappaport and (non-drunk) crew at METAL SUCKS.

FEBRUARY 2012

So yeah, work has commenced on the NEXT record. So far there is 90 minutes of music, so whittling this thing down to a single CD release is going to be an interesting exercise in restraint, common sense and musical apptitude. So here it is -> Video evidence that, yes, Oceans of Night (hereafter referred to as "we") are indeed working on music and other covert activities for a new CD for 2012/13. This is the guitar solo for new song #26, aka "Heavy #1" aka "The song that shall not be named until it has a name!". Thanks for checking it out. And sorry, no refrigerators are featured in this video, no matter how hard to look. Check it out.

JANUARY 2012

Ok, so finally... *finally* the press pages have been updated, and recent reviews, testimonials and interviews posted... *finally!* More to come as they roll in across the editors desk. In the meantime, we're already hard at work on the songs for the next CD and for what it's worth, we're still writing NEW ones. This is going to be another productive year. Not to mention that Scott Mosher is also currently writing and arranging songs with Chris "E(llefson)F5" Rifkin for our future VS project. Just in case you were wondering, unfortunately, VS is NOT an acronym for Victoria's Secret. Maybe next year. Onwards and upwards, folks!
