NEWS: Of the Sun announce EP “Pattern Rebirth” with the title track!

Preparing to unveil a sophomore record in upcoming EP “Pattern Rebirth”, Progressive Death Metal project Of the Sun have released the title track in lyric video form. The follow up to a well received debut album in “Before A Human Path”, the solo project of Patrick Duvall has seen him move from Myrtle Beach in Southern California to Austin Texas before landing in southern Germany during its life cycle thus far. He cites Between The Buried, Opeth and Soundgarden among his influences while for this record he has an impressive collection of guests joining him including bassist Jacob Umansky (Intervals, The Faceless, Painted In Exile), Bryce Butler (Shadow Of Intent, The Faceless, Contrarian) and Rom Gov (Seek Irony, Tibetan Sky Ritual)…

Mastermind Patrick Duvall comments: “Into Battle was the original title and concept of what became Pattern Rebirth, though it was never fully realized. Based on the imagined experience of someone who entered an ancient battlefield (an experience had by so many throughout history), I was able to write the first 4 guitar sequences before running into a dead end. I found myself having a hard time with the concept itself. The emotional connection to it just wasn’t there, and I found myself spending more time than necessary researching details in an effort to ground myself to the theme. It started to feel insincere, so I put it down and walked away for a while. Then, in the middle of a tattoo session, the vibe of the song revealed itself to me in its true form; Pattern Rebirth. It was about facing a dreaded truth in order to fight for something better, to transform that state of shared reality.”
