Continuing with the massive lead up to their highly anticipated new album, Germany’s post-metal-elite The Ocean Collective are unveiling the absolutely explosive visuals for their unreleased single “Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence,” the third preview of Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic. As The Ocean are known for their mammoth melodies, ebbing from crushing climaxes to gorgeously intricate interludes, so the video matches their prehistoric, theatrical leanings. Using makeup and hand-molded masks, director Craig Murray transforms vocalist Loic Rossetti into a Cambrian-age lichen-creature, weaving molds of the band into a rocky prehistoric landscape, taking hours to meticulously shoot the video frame-by-frame. Support the band by preordering their upcoming album here, and if you wish to keep up with them give them a like on Facebook!
German post-metal/rock band, The Ocean have just released the track “Permian: The Great Dying”, which is taken from the band’s upcoming album “Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic” which will be released via Metal Blade (CD) and Pelagic Records (LP) on November 2, 2018. “Phanerozoic” is a two-part album, with the second part releasing sometime in 2020. Listen to the song below.
This past Friday, Silent Planet brought an incredibly cathartic musical experience to a packed audience at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, California. With direct support from Strawberry Girls and Night Verses, the diverse lineup put on a show spanning from metalcore to post-rock to progressive, with the consistent through-line being maximum emotional impact. TNF’s own Deniz Davenport was at the show capturing every moment, and we’re thrilled to share her excellent photos.
