Stream of Consciousness

Scroll down for interview and music download...


Stream of Consciousness is a progressive metal band from Birmingham. Their rhythmically complex and heavily orchestrated sound draws inspiration from bands like Pain of Salvation and Symphony X. Sara Chesler and Steven Lamphear share vocal duties and lock in the low end of the sonic spectrum -- Sara plays a 5-string bass and Steven plays a 12-string Chapman Stick. The guitar playing of Wade Beevers and the intricate drumming of Jon Bernreuter provide heavy grooves.

Stream of Consciousness' debut album "Awakening" is in the final stages of recording. The band has already begun work on compositions and arrangements for their second album and continues to stay active through regular performances and CD releases.
