“ProgMetal though? Neither, because they do not sound for a second like Dream Theater & Co. But like
almost anything else, what makes "Inside Outside" a pleasurable and exciting rollercoaster ride.” - Gaesteliste.de


"A true pearl ... great melodies... they manage to highlight every song with fantastic choruses, they also
reveal an exciting and versatile songwriting throughout the whole album.” - Metalnews.de


definitely no run-of-the-mill band ...damn fat and catchy guitar riffs are arranged with rough and
variable vocals in an awesome combination... seven songs that have potential earworm character, are
stylistically assured (including many own ideas) and are never boring. The CD isn´t perfect. But those
who have expected that, should now go to a rehearsal room, be ashamed of themselves and then listen
to DEEP BLACK SEES!” - Stalker.cd


all in all DEEP BLACK SEES transmit more experience than some of the old stagers do. The songs
on "Inside Outside" are refreshingly versatile and appear professional and totally honest. Also the glassclear,
powerful and very balanced sound is really convincing. On this more than promising fundament
the Sicilians will know how to build on.” - Bleeding4Metal


“who likes listening several times to a record to warm up, awaits an interesting record of a band, that
has a great musical potential. Hence I am looking really forward listening also to the next album, cause
when this band finds an own style, or better refines it, they will have a great future” - Rocktimes.de


“Si tratta di un caso raro in cui la varietà è ben bilanciata, poiché non si avverte nessuna
predisposizione verso la ricerca di originalità forzata, e nemmeno verso il conformismo progressive
ispirato dai grandi nomi. Grande personalità dunque già da questo primo disco, e perfetto equilibrio tra
tutte le caratteristiche che un soggetto di buona apertura mentale si aspetta da una band” - Unprogged.com


“this is an excellent debut. It quietly references a lot of very good progressive acts but also stretches
beyond those” - SonicAbuse


“Almost any musiclover will enjoy “Inside Outside”, that takes its time and leisure, to dive into an exciting
– and at the same time relaxing – world, that has been made emotionally and technically exceedingly
diversified.” - Metal.de

Bio

Deep Black Sees are an Italian progressive rock band, hailing from the hilly heart of Sicily.
Their furious venture started in 2003 at the early age of 13 years old, with a good helping of music in their cradle and rock in their blood. The lineup has never changed and remains the same today. This rock hotchpotch developed and took the shape of “Hypocrisy” (2008),their first EP self-produced and printed in a limited edition which sold out immediately.
In 2009 they were contacted by one of the most influential American independent record companies, 272 Records (Hollywood), with which the band signed for their first single,Hypocrisy, in the Kill City Vol.18 metal compilation.
After months of composition and touring, the idea of recording the band's first ever official album began to be more than real when well known Grammy nominated American record producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, R.E.M, Johnny Cash, System of A Down) hooked up with the band and decided to produce the record. In October 2010 the band then travelled to California’s RadioStar Studios.
A month of intense arranging and recording led to the actual album Inside Outside, mastered at Kitchen Mastering (Carrboro, NC).
While recording, the Deep Black Sees performed several shows around California, with amazing feedback from the audience.
Since February 2011 they have been officially signed by the experienced UK label Rising Records which will release their new album Inside Outside, out on the 27th of June and available worldwide (Plastichead/Cargo/Audioglobe).
Stay tuned for more details, news and dates of their first official European tour to be announced!
