Five silhouettes, their backlit bodies moving frenetically in front of the huge LED lighting rigs, flashing synchronized to every little change in the music : watching The Ocean perform live is an experience. The videos, the lighting and more than anything, the music - orchestral, dense and epic - all contribute to that certain atmosphere that sets The Ocean apart from most of their peers in the realm of modern day's heavy music. The lynch-esque play with darkness and dynamics make it easy for the listener to get lost in the dismal oceanic spheres.
Despite initial hardships and the ever-changing lineup, The Ocean have released 4 critically acclaimed studio albums over the course of the past 6 years. Praise of their latest 80 minutes concept-opus Precambrian has spread like wildfire in the community. After close to 400 shows all over the world, supporting bands like Opteh, Cult of Luna and Isis, and successful headlining tours in Europe and the US, the addition of vocalist Loic Rossetti marks the final step in a recent development within the band : after 8 years of existence, The Ocean has transformed from a collective into a band. On this special tour, the band will exclusively perfoms the 2008 highly recommended Precambrian album!
