Album Review

As it's become more a part of the mainstream, heavy metal has needed to find newer and more terrifying ways to maintain its status as the genre most likely to scare your parents. Leading the way in these innovations are Chicago's Oceano, who hone their shuddering, monstrous sound to menacing perfection with their third outing, Incisions. Pushing the ideas of death metal to their most inhuman and industrial extremes, the band's lurching, atonal guitar work and guttural growls feel almost alien. Although the band is working, ostensibly, in the oft-maligned subgenre of deathcore, Incisions shows that there's more to Oceano's sound than rote repetition of a few genre tropes, and makes a strong case for the band being the punishing sound's best champions.

Customer Reviews


It's another GREAT Oceano album. Adams vocals are fantastic. Can't wait for the whole thing to come out!!!

What happened?

I remember the first time I listened to Depths. It blew my mind beyond comprehension. It was so brutal and I immediately fell in love. The breakdowns, the vocals, the sounds they all worked together to create an unnerving yet addicting style of music. This was the pinnacle of modern deathcore. Then came Contagion. The album was a bit of a step down, but it wasn't horrible and it had its own theme. The breakdowns were still there, and the moments that just sent chills down your spine still reside. And to this day, Quarantine remains my all time favorite Oceano song. Then this came... I was so pumped for Incisions and Slow Murder really caught me by surprise but the rest of the album? Compared to the likes of previous albums? Come on. I will give credit to Adam's amazing vocals, the improvement of drumming and.. That's about it. The overall production and sound quality was complete crap! Did they really think this was okay? It sounds like a rough mix. Everything is all washed out leaving a shadow cast over a glimpse of guitar improvement. The quality makes the entire experience awkward. There are pretty much no more breakdowns, and they started experimenting with clean vocals? With a more washed out generic death metal sound amongst incredible vocals, I see this as an act of desperation. Next time.. Guys. Stick to what you do best. Pure windy city deathcore.

Trying to Let it Sink In

Sounds like the love child of Acacia Strain and one of the Sumerian bands has been listening to some of its old Meshuggah albums. Great vocals as usual, and I like the mix. Hoping that this eventually "sinks in" as something original, which it very well might.


Formed: Chicago, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Originally formed in 2006 as a grindcore band by guitarist Jeremy Carroll, Chicago's Oceano went through a revolving cast of players until settling on a new lineup and a new sound in 2007. That lineup, consisting of Andrew Mikhail (guitar), Danny Terchin (drums), Adam Warren (vocals), and Kevin Colabuono (bass), would go on to develop the sound they'd take to the world in their first recordings. Pushing the limits of extreme music and influenced by Behemoth and the Acacia Strain, the band transitioned...
