“Fans of Decapitated should find much to appreciate about this Oklahoma beast of a band as should those of you who are always on the look-out for new ‘leaning-forward’ death metal” – http://metalmark.blogspot.ca/2013/06/dischordia-project-19.html

THE OCEAN Release New Video, Ready to Hit the Road

THE OCEAN launched a brand new video for Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams from their most recent album, Pelagial. The video is the band’s first official music video, not counting previous videos composed of live footage, directed by Alexander Kraudelt and Lukas Hambach, produced by Frameshock, with additional visuals by Craig Murray. Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams is streaming now on metalblade.com/theocean.

Guitarist and founding member Robin Staps comments:

“This clip is blending performance footage with excerpts from Craig Murray’s Pelagial movie, which was released along with the limited edition CD and vinyl boxset versions of the album. We’ve never really done a clip like that before, but it was great fun making this.”

Pelagial, the latest album from THE OCEAN, is received with open arms and ears across the globe – this is a band that are becoming widely regarded as leaders within their genre.

Metal Sucks declared The Ocean have “never written more intriguing music.”

“Mastodon‐shaped footprints, lush strings… [before] the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos” – Spin

“more luxurious, experimental and textural” – Decibel

“ambitious and adventurous” – Terrorizer

“melodrama, intimacy, grandeur, grace and big fucking riffs” – Kerrang

“With Isis gone, no one has yet taken their place as intelligent and sensitive masters of post‐metal but, with this, there’s no doubt that The Ocean are shoe‐ins for the title” – RockARolla

The latter’s emphasis is fitting considering The Ocean recently toured a number of sell out shows with another master of post‐metal, Cult of Luna. The Mastodon reference is relevant after they invited The Ocean out for their summer tour dates, and the diversity on display is never more apparent when you consider tours in the past few years with Dillinger Escape Plan, Opeth and Anathema. The Ocean has an army of fans, and undoubtedly the respect of their peers.

Diverse elements were honed and perfected on Pelagial, and this ethos is at the heart of the touring package for The Ocean’s headline European tour. For an album that treads a wild and creative path within and outside of the supposed boundaries of metal, Norway’s SHINING could not be a more appropriate addition to the touring bill. Their new album One One One was recently released and it’s direct and pulsating approach is gathering the same kind of response that saw 2010’s Blackjazz get rave reviews all over the world, with contemporaries such as Danko Jones and Mike Portnoy writing pieces praising the band. If you’ve seen them live then you’ll know how good they are; if you’ve not, you need to!

Poland’s TIDES FROM NEBULA meanwhile have mesmerized the underground and in 2013 they take a step up, releasing their new album via a brand new label. They bring postrock to this package, a welcome ingredient due to this genre touching aspects of Pelagial. Finally, France’s HACRIDE bring some serious, technical heaviness to the tour, as anyone who has heard their new album Back To Where You’ve Never Been will testify.

ALLEGAEON Release Performance Demo; Tour Begins Friday


Colorado natives, Allegaeon, just completed a brand new performance demo video. This time, guitarist Greg Burgess and bassist Corey Archuleta show fans how they play Secrets of the Sequence, the epic closing track to their latest album, Formshifter. The video is streaming now at metalblade.com/allegaeon.

Beginning this Friday, Allegaeon is performing a series of headlining shows leading up to their US tour with Wretched, Abiotic, and Rivers of Nihil. The confirmed listing of dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/allegaeon.

Guitarist Greg Burgess comments on the tour:

“We are super stoked to be getting back on the road, and we think we’ve got a pretty fun set for the fans. Our headlining shows will be about an hour, playing songs from every release of our career, including the debut of a brand new song The Fibonacci Series. As for the bulk of the tour with Wretched, Abiotic, and Rivers of Nihil, we’re incredibly excited. We’ve been wanting to tour with our buddies in Wretched for a long time now, and are stoked to finally see it come to fruition. And it’s gonna be awesome to meet our label mates Abiotic and Rivers of Nihil! This tour is gonna blow peoples minds!! Bring your riot gear.”

Allegaeon’s second full-length album, Formshifter, has significantly surpassed its predecessor and debuted at #29 on the Billboard New Artist Chart and #99 on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart. This is a huge achievement for the band as they continue to carve out their foothold within the metal community.

Formshifter has been incredibly well received by press worldwide.

The UK’s Kerrang Magazine raves:

“It’s not just the magnificently blended barrage of monstrous riffs and insidious hooks. Nor is it solely due to the fact it sounds like the quartet are trying to bring the sky crashing down on your head. And it’s not just the wealth of complex leads that will make many guitarists petulantly sulk in the corner after a single exposure. It’s all of those elements – combined with great songwriting that makes the record truly special.”

“But the members of Allegaeon are so monstrously talented—see the entwined guitar harmonics, machine-gun drumming, and even the occasional, not insufferably acoustic interlude on the group’s heavily NWOBHM-shaded second LP, Formshifter—that they dig their way out of the doldrums of mere proficiency” – AVClub.com

“The new face of ruthless modern death metal” – Metal Hammer Magazine

Formshifter is a bewilderingly powerful album that is an essential of the year” – NoCleanSinging.com

“one of the landmark releases in melodic death metal in 2012… fans of pure metal that is both ambitious and true to its roots need this record in their lives. Now.” – Outburn Magazine
