Origin: Shawnee, Oklahoma, USA  
Genres: Doom Metal
Last update/review: July 21, 2003


Oversoul was formed by guitarist/vocalist Dennis Cornelius following the breakup of his previous band, Revelation. As a duo, Cornelius and friend/drummer Patric Barrett released Seven Days In November (the title indirectly references the time spent recording the album), a fine doom metal album not too far removed from the Hellhound days of Revelation and the other related bands from the early-nineties DC doom scene. The focus here is not on bludgingly heavy riffs, but a slightly more relaxed and refined doom style that, coupled with Cornelius' excellent tailor-made-for-doom vocals, creates a quality listening experience. The band expanded to a four-piece shortly after the release of the album, then broke up in 2002. Cornelius has now reformed his old band Revelation, bringing guitarist Chris Greenway (one of the post-album new guys) with him, and also (July 2003) recently joined Place Of Skulls.
