Sea of Tranquillity
The Omega Ruins (Cursed Productions)

By: Jeb Branin

This is not my first exposure to this band and every time I hear them I like them better and better. Their slow-to-mid-paced death metal is impressive on many levels but none more than the epic nature of their song writing. Because they are not a band that relies on speed or generic "brutality" for impact it frees them up to do quite a bit of exploring within the structure of their songs. A "thinking man's" death metal band? Possibly, but maybe even more than that they are a feeling man's group. I wouldn't go so far as to call them "death emo" but I certainly would understand if someone else did. Whether or not being a band of class and distinction is an advantage or a liability in the death metal scene is rather debatable I would imagine but take it or leave it that is what SEA OF TRANQUILLITY is.
