The Berlin-based atmospheric and progressive (post-) rock/metal band The Ocean returns with their new studio-album “Holocene”. They are one of the best forward-thinking bands in modern heavy music, embracing the cerebral, the primal and the inexplicable in equal measure, showcasing detail and depth; ‘complex, melodic, epic, overwhelming, experimental, eclectic, cinematic, innovative and mercilessly tight’.

An album about the angst, alienation, loss of reason and critical thinking, rise of conspiracy theories and deconstruction of values in the modern age. Mixed and mastered by Karl Daniel Liden; bringing an unprecedented clarity to the organic sound of the band, with a huge ambient drum sound contrasting the electronics, and a warm and fat but somewhat brittle guitar tone that suits the diverse string work on the album incredible well and merges with the tone of the brass into orchestral grandeur. The track “Unconformities” contains the mesmerizing vocals by Karin Park (Arabrot).

For fans of: Tool, Isis, Opeth, Anathema, Vola, Pink Floyd, Mastodon, Archive, Opeth, Cult Of Luna, Amplifier, Katatonia, The Pineapple Thief, Karnivool, Breach and Nine Inch Nails.
