Germany’s leading post metal act, The Ocean, will play an exclusive headline show at Melbourne’s Howler on Monday November 28, while touring nationally with Australian progressive metal powerhouse Ne Obliviscaris.
This special event will be the only The Ocean headline show on their current Australian Tour (supporting Ne Obliviscaris).
The Ocean bring with them a new, extended line-up that includes cellist, Dalai Theofilopoulou. Their highly successful headline tour of Australia in early 2015 included several sold out shows, including Melbourne.
The past few years have seen The Ocean touring the globe relentlessly with the likes of Opeth, Mastodon, Devin Townsend Project, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, and many more.
Their unforgettable live show has taken them to the furthest regions of the planet, from Siberia, Russia, USA, Hong Kong, Mexico, China, India, and everywhere in between.
Their current album Pelagial is a progressive and ambitious musical odyssey, written, recorded, mixed and to-be-performed-live as one single 53-minute piece of music, mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Orphaned Land) at Fascination Street Studios in rebr, Sweden.
Pelagial is a concept record that takes the listener on a journey that begins at the surface of the ocean and plunging through all five pelagic depth zones: epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathyalpelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic.
Unlike a detached conceptual idea, this can actually be heard and felt while listening to Pelagial.
