- The Ocean
- Tue May 22 - Tue May 22
Founded back in 2000 by the forward thinking master of minds Robin Straps, The Ocean is a progressive musical collective based in Berlin (Germany) that strives on an open door policy of creative out put and diverse productivity. Over the past 12 years The Ocean have gone through countless line up changes, some 40 musicians have passed through their doors, all of which have contributed to the legacy that has become the legend of The Ocean.
With genre defying releases that weave between post hardcore, progressive rock, metal, doom, post rock, and ambient experimentations, it’s next to impossible to label The Ocean to one specific genre.
With every release comes a new progression in sound, and usually a slight variation to the bands line up.
With their debut album Fluxion released on the prestigious Spanish label Throne Records, which gained them critically acclaim amongst hardcore and metal fans, The Ocean made a career defining move with their 2nd album Aeolian by signing with the ground breaking Los Angeles based extreme metal label Metal Blade. With the assistance of Metal Blade and their global distribution and support, The Ocean was now in a position to reach a far greater audience on a broader scale.
Conceptually The Ocean are light years ahead of most contemporary underground bands, their d.i.y approach to quality control both visually, sonically, and lyrically, has earned them a legion of hardcore fans all around the World. Much like their peers Neurosis, ISIS, Baroness and Cult of Luna, nothing has been compensated, nothing has been sparred, the quality of their artwork reflects the music they create and both are complimentary to each other. With The Ocean, much like the bands mentioned above, you get the full package.
For the first time ever, The Ocean are finally gracing Australian shores, this May they’ll be taking their cosmic progressive metal all major Cities Australian wide.
