Oceano – Depths (2009)


“Depths” is one of the most brutal releases I’ve heard in the last few years. It grabs you by the throat and keeps going at it until the album is over. Oceano comes from Chicago, USA, and this album was released through Earache records. Providing 13 tracks of perfectly executed death metal, this album will take many by surprise.

The band’s musical style is nothing new, they excel at creating death metal with some great growls. The music is quite technical in some parts and overall pretty good. The guitar chugging never gets old if its done correctly and this band has a graduate degree at doing this. While there are some influences of Cannibal Corpse and other death metal bands, Oceano has a very characteristic chugging guitar sound of their own.

The drums keep all the other instruments in like with razor sharp changes and well used double kicks. Musically this band is pretty good and they are greatly helped by the crystal clear production on this album.

Overall a pretty good release of death metal that while maintaining it’s brutality is fresh enough to not bore me to death.
