We are ALL OF THE SUN

 

Of The Sun, a trio of musicians, who through years of experience and evolution, in an effort to create their own approach to experimental music, have coined the term Southern Progressive Metal: infusing the percussive grooves of early '90s rock and metal with the technicality of modern progressive metal, with an appreciation for various vocal styles. The members in Of The Sun aim to shape sounds in ways that convey the honest and exciting nature of their collective creative vision.
They hail from Austin, Texas.   

 

Guitar, Vocals: Patrick Duvall
Bass, Vocals: David Duvall

A soliloquy: Song premiere on metal underground

We've released our second single, and the 4th track from Before a Human Path, "A Soliloquy" (a heartwarming tale of seeking answers, triumph, defeat, and the cyclical nature of reality - all packaged in a mind fuck of musical dichotomy) on MetalUnderground.com!  Listen to it here and wrap your brain around some of our new tunes, coming to a stage near you soon!

what he listens to in the shadows: patrick's guest blog on glacially musical

When Patrick was asked to compile a playlist of songs that he not only enjoys, but also might shed some insight into the inspirations and influences behind our music, he only had to think for about 5 seconds before he thought of about 20 fuckin' songs.  Unfortunately, they only asked for 10.  Anyway, you can read the piece, hear the tunes and catch a glimpse into the twisted mind of OF THE SUN right here.

The way to the path: The story behind the making of "before a human path"

Written by Patrick Duvall

Before A Human Path is the product of a journey.

It goes something like this:

A majority of the songs (A Soliloquy, The Tightrope Mile & Nebulamorphous) took initial form between David and me in South Carolina immediately after recording our debut album, AM Radio read more...

Beginnings: An Introspective By patrick duvall

As brothers, David and I learned how to play our instruments alongside one another, drew from the same inspirations, spent the entirety of our adolescence, teenage years, and onward developing our stage presence and collaborating with different musicians. We went on road trips, read more...

 

Devin Townsend Nearly Shut Down By Austin Fire Marshall

Friday (9/30) night's show at Dirty Dog Bar featuring Of The Sun, Memories in Broken Glass and The Devin Townsend Project was a night to remember. The last minute showcase, put on by Come and Take It Productions, was a prime example of what happens when local talent is given the opportunity to display their talents alongside a worldwide musical icon.
Although the show came to a premature end when agents from the Austin City Fire Marshall's Office arrived and declared that the venue was overfull, the mood in the crowd remained electric.

 

Upcoming Album: "Before A Human Path"

Nearly eight years after the completion of our debut album, "A.M. Radio", we are happy to announce that we have completed tracking and mixing our sophomore album, "Before A Human Path" at White Room Studios in Austin, Texas.  We are currently in the process of final revisions, mastering and artwork.  Helmed by Of The Sun and producer/engineer Sebastian Cure, the record should be available in physical copies by the end of 2016, with digital downloads being available by the end of October.
