Since conception in 2001 SOAC linked their music to all visual, photographic and spiritual elements that tide their inspirations and influences.
SOAC have eluded classification by creating vast electronic soundscapes to drive the hypnotic harmonic pulse unique to their epic sound. In 2007 their debut album encapsulating styles from classic rock to avant-garde metal was released on UK based label Sound Devastation Records .
In 2009 SOAC collaborated with legendary desert instrumentalists Yawning Man to form Yawning Sons . This psychedelic, ambient drone rock trans-Atlantic alliance also included guest vocals from members of the Desert Sessions, Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age. Ceremony to the Sunset was released to critical acclaim in July 2009 on Lexicon Devil Records Australia.
The second in the chronology of these collaborative releases featured members of riff rock powerhouse Karma to Burn and the new West Virginian incarnation Treasure Cat . The punishing and explosive 11-track Last Day of Summer was released worldwide on Underdogma Records in August 2009.
