Reviews : Music Reviews : Ocean - Anthropocentric
Year Released: 2010
Reviewer: Terry Bunch
| Latest release from this German progressive/experimental metal band. Each song on this CD is rich with layers of sound that may take a surprise left turn at any moment. Never a band to be classified within a single style, THE OCEAN continue to push the boundaries of their sound on this album.
At times, the band is calm and graceful. At other times, the band is restless and frenetic. This combination keeps the album interesting throughout. Within this CD, you will hear all kinds of influences and all kinds of styles all mixed together in apparant chaotic fashion. But as a whole, the CD comes together as a carefully orchestrated masterpiece. This is a CD for metalheads who are looking for something a bit different.
