An OCEAN of tumult

OCEAN (not to be confused with The OCEAN) is from PORTLAND and offers a thundering debut that clocks in 80+ minutes (including a CURE cover that is only on vinyl!).
Bad news come from this ocean of tumult and distorted guitars, drenched in resonating bass lines and monolithic wall of drums.

Out on Important Rec. in the US in 2005, this has been re-released on vinyl through the British Rocket rec, with a slightly different cover.

Musically, OCEAN plays Doom, metallic Post Rock ala PELICAN and ISIS... with balls, guts and rage, no rest for the wicked, we're all doomed and here the soundtrack of our last days on this rotten planet Earth. Lovely!
I forgot to tell you about the beautiful splatter discs and the metallic embossed cover...

The Fall is a 24+ minute cut of depressed riffage and apocalyptic laments.
