Exclusive: One-Man Prog Band SURFACE OF THE SUN Streaming New Single "Oblivion"

Devon Eggers and his solo project Surface of the Sun have announced a new single ”Oblivion” taken from the upcoming album Panacea, which will be released on September 6, 2019. Listen to the song below, exclusively brought to you by Prog Sphere.

Since his first recording in 2011, Eggers has worked hard to make a more polished, detailed, and refined second effort and the result, Panacea definitely brings that aspiration alive with more elaborate song arrangements that still have the Surface of the Sun feel.

The EP consists of four songs, each providing a unique element and feel to the release. They all have their own character, but are complementary to each other. Eggers outlines the details in the single ”Oblivion”:

‘Oblivion’ starts with a unique bass guitar riff, which is one of the few songs primarily written on the instrument. It’s a little lighter than the others and builds through a series of verses and breakdowns supplemented with Asian instruments until bursting into the first chorus. ’Oblivion’ also has an elaborate bridge section with energy that ebbs and flows, before ramping up into an explosive ending.

All vocals and music are written, performed and recorded by Devon Eggers except for the drums, which were performed and composed by Chris Warunki (Omnisight).

Heavy, creative and catchy, Surface of the Sun is appealing for all fans of progressive metal, especially those with an interest in Tool, Karnivool, and Chevelle.

Listen to ”Oblivion” below.
