Just from the first song on this cd, Inhuman Affliction I knew right from then this is my Whitechapel for 2009. I’m not saying Oceano sounds like Whitechapel, I am saying Oceano has the potential to be the Death Metal cd of the year. This band prepares me for destruction, and a must see live band in 2009. The cd will have you going out of your mind. This is a must have cd of 2009. If you don’t have this cd you are missing out on the Death Metal cd of 2009.
Metal Album Reviews[RSS]
Here we go again, the whole deathcore genre has been played out. When I mean played out, I mean it’s been used and sold until you couldn’t get an ounce more out of it.
Oceano are prime examples of what are good musicians playing bland music. Unfortunately for the other reviewers zeal, the same can’t be said for me. A lot of awkward placed breakdowns are present. It had the makings of a good album, but suffers from the same down-tuned, passionless filth we are being over saturated with.
Take any track on this album and listen to any other dozen albums and you’ll feel like you’ve got a major sense of identity crisis going on. Which there is. Too many bands doing the same thing is never good.
The only real upside I can say about this band is the production of the CD was excellent. Outside of that, you’d be a fool to think you’ve come into a new band.
Yes for all you deathcore haters,another deathcore band has come onto the
scene to lay waste to everything and everyone.The one exception to this is Chicargo’s Oceano seem to have everything right.Lead by Adam Warren’s brutal voice,Andrew Mikhail and Jeremy Carroll’s shredding riffs,Daniel Terchin pounding double bass drumming,and finally Jason Jones droning bassline this band shows promise.The one thing that may turn people off would be how at some points Depths sounds a(n) awful like This Is Exile from Whitechapel.Don’t let that turn you off from this metal gem by this talented young group’s masterful debut.
I’m not a huge fan of the deathcore genre. It all sounds the same to me. Not only does Ocean break the mold, but it beats the living crap out of it. The production that went in to this album really shines through. There’s really not much to say about this album other than I can listen to it all the way through without the urge to change songs. If you’re a fan of heavy, brutal death metal, you would be a fool not to own this.
VERY GREAT EFFORT BY OCEANO! DEPTHS IS A VERY DOUBLE BASS DRUM FRIENDLY DEATHCORE ALBUM. THESE GUYS ARE SOMEWHAT NEW TO THE SCENE SO THERE WERE VERY HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS ALBUM. PLUS HERE ON THE WESTCOAST THIS ALBUM IS PRETTY EASY TO FIND AND PACKAGED FOR $10 BRAND NEW AT OUR RECORD STORES. WHICH MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO TRY IF YOU HAVENT YET HEARD THEM. THINK IMPENDING DOOM MEETS THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD. BOTTOM LINE: A DEATHCORE FANS MUST HAVE CD.
