To replace don Airey

Since 2001, the Berlin-based musician collective The Ocean have released 7 critically acclaimed studio albums, and a split EP with Japanese post-rock legends Mono. With an ever-changing lineup of various on- and off-stage musicians and visual artists, the relentlessly touring group have become well known for their immense, mind-expanding live shows, which they have carried into the most remote corners of the globe, from Siberian squats to colonial theatres in Ecuador.

Over the course of their storied career, The Ocean have toured with Opeth, Mastodon, Mono, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Anathema, Between The Buried And Me and Devin Townsend, and have appeared on major festivals including Roskilde, Dour, Pukkelpop, Roadburn, Wacken, With Full Force, Summer Slaughter, Summer Breeze and Graspop. The band’s own Pelagic Records has also become one of Europe’s leading labels for post-rock and post-metal, with a catalog of 120 releases since 2009.

“The Ocean do for earth science class what Mastodon did for Melville: make learning brutal“, Decibel wrote about 2007’s Precambrian, Revolverdescribing it as a “Teutonic paean to Earth’s geology“. 2013’s seminal Pelagial, described as “a filmic ode to shifting moods, dichotomous influences and the musical personification of sinking towards the planet’s deepest underwater points” by Rock Sound, was a milestone for the band, and their most conceptual work to date, and was ranked #3 at LoudWire‘s “Best Metal Albums Of 2013”, and #5 in About.com‘s “2013 Best Heavy Metal Albums”.

It’s the 10th anniversary of the -centrics! . ‚Heliocentric' was the first record with Loïc on vocals, and a bit of polarising one for a lot of people out there… a departure from „Precambrian“, not only in terms of vocal approach, but also in terms of song writing. There are some tunes on these albums like "Ptolemy Was Wrong“, „Epiphany“ or „A Tiny Grain Of Faith“ that were odd for our standards at that time, based mostly on piano and vocals, or electronics. Robin was just bored of writing typical metal songs at that time and wanted to try something else, and Loïc’s vocal range and abilities allowed him to do that all of a sudden. Looking back at it now, the -centrics appear more like a snapshot of a quite experimental time for us, but this double album sort of paved the way for our future as a band nevertheless. . On the occasion of this 10th cumpleaños, we have printed up new merch, based on and inspired by the album artworks. Order at link in our bio and celebrate with us! . "Luxurious, tectonic, ingenious, calculated, charismatic, enterprising, dextrous, inventive, unrestrained, fascinating and poignant. If all this doesn't convince you to at least check them out, then seriously, fuck off." - Rock Sound . "With a more spacious sound, 'Heliocentric' still provides massively heavy moments that would leave Mastodon's prog bone a-tingling, an effect heightened by the surprisingly touching calm moments, huge orchestrations and iron fist in velvet glove-like clean singing parts" - Terrorizer . "This is the most forward-thinking statement by the Ocean yet, and stands as the most seamlessly integrated and consistent recording they’ve issued to date." - All music . "Heliocentric is a dense and impressively detailed album that showcases the best elements of post-metal." - Big Cheese Magazine . #heliocentric #anthropocentric #theoceancollective #theoceanband #pelagicrecords #metalbladerecords #10thanniversary

Perisphinctes, the size of a human hand. You could choose between a baby specimen of these cephalopods from the jurassic period, and a trilobite or even a petrified mosasaurus tooth, when ordering the Phanerozoic boxset. Do you love fossils as much as we do? Are you ready for our soundtrack for the mesozoic? . . . #theoceancollective #phanerozoic #phanerozoicii #phanerozoiciimesozoiccenozoic #metalbladerecords #metalblade #pelagicrecords #vinylboxset #theoceanband #perisphinctes #fossil #fossils #mesozoic #jurassic #cephalopods #cephalopodsofmetal #cephaloprog
