Few albums still feel relevant, fresh, and contemporary-sounding, ten-years after their initial release. THE OCEAN‘s Precambrian, originally released in November 2007, is one such case: the band’s most mature and versatile album to that date, Precambrian is distinguished by complex yet intimate songwriting, huge orchestrations, subtle electronic textures and immense harmonic and dynamic density. With guests appearances by Caleb Scofield (Cave In, Old Man Gloom), Nate Newton (Converge), Tomas Hallbom (Breach), Eric Kalsbeek (ex-Textures), and musicians from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Precambrian remains a career-defining milestone for the band and a fan favorite.

To commemorate its release, Pelagic Records will issue a special tenth anniversary edition of Precambrian on March 16th, 2018. The 3xLP, available in three color variants, comes with a brand new studio re-recording of ten-minute opener “Rhyacian” featuring the current lineup of guitarist Robin Staps, vocalist Loic Rossetti, drummer Paul Seidel and bassist Mattias Hägerstrand.

“Epic in scope and flawless in execution, Precambrian reinforces THE OCEAN as one of the most exciting names in modern heavy music. Behold mind-blowing metal on a Wagnerian scale.” 9/10 – Rock Sound (UK)

“Full of cinematic breadth and orchestral majesty, it’s easy to get lost in the album’s 80 minutes of rhythmic sea changes and powerful riffing. THE OCEAN excel in their idiosyncratic nuances and hammering insistence on this Teutonic paean to Earth’s geology.” 4/5 – Revolver (US)

THE OCEAN – Kick Off North American Tour On April 11, 2011!

German atmospheric Progressive Metal collective and Metal Blade Recording artists, THE OCEAN,  today kick off a month-long North American tour! The band will perform three headlining shows beginning tonight at Jaxx in Springfield, VA before joining “The Hypersleep Dialogues Trek, ” with headliners Between The Buried And Me, Job For A Cowboy and Cephalic Carnage on select dates. Presented by Peter Says Denim, in association with Guitar World & MetalSucks.net, “The Hypersleep Dialogues Trek”will begin in Farmingdale, New York at The Crazy Donkey, include a stop at this year’s New England Metal And Hardcore fest in Worcester, Massachusetts and hit over two dozen cities before making a final stop in Ashville, North Carolina at The Orange Peel.

Said guitarist Robin Staps of the tour: “We’re excited to be back in the U.S. It’s been three years since our last tour over here with Kylesa, Intronaut, Lair Of The Minotaur and Withered. We’ve been wanting to come back ever since, but it’s just so difficult for a European band to work out tour logistics and working visas are really expensive for us… But we finally made it! Looking forward to these three upcoming headlining shows where we’re gonna play full 90-minute sets, and I’m sure the BTBAM tour afterwards will be equally great, though shorter set times for us. Looking forward to see you all out there somewhere!”

THE OCEAN will be touring in support of their 2010 separately-issued double album: Heliocentric and Anthropocentric (released in April and November 2010 respectively). This mammoth conceptual effort took almost two years to complete. From a lyrical and artistic point of view, the albums represent a fundamental and philosophical critique of Christianity. Both albums scored rave reviews worldwide, including Album Of The Month in Metal Hammer Germany, Italy and Greece, and a cover feature in the December issue of Metal Hammer UK’s/Subterranea (their Extreme Metal supplement).
