OCEANS – Release New Single

‘Slaves To The Feed’!

OCEANS are back with their first new music of 2024! The German nu-metal band proudly presents their latest single ‘Slaves To The Feed‘, which provides another strong message towards the importance of mental health and raising awareness on this topic.

The new song sees OCEANS collaborate with Australian keyboardist MISSTIQ as well as Josh Collard from EARTH CALLER.

To coincide with the release of ‘Slaves To The Feed‘, OCEANS are unleashing a second new single! ‘Breed Consume Die‘ sees the Germans once again prove their musical versatility as they let their heavier side come to the fore. Josh Collard from EARTH CALLER is also featured on this song, which serves as a social wake-up call.

As if the release of two new singles wasn’t enough, OCEANS have also delivered a brand new music video for their single ‘Slaves To The Feed‘, which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/7Bbd0ECvG0E

Timo Rotten comments:

“Social media makes us sick. It makes me sick, I’m fucking addicted to my smartphone. Even though it has made my life miserable to a certain extent, I still keep scrolling. And why is that? Because people tell me it’s part of the business. We as a band are both part of the solution and part of the problem.”

Ever since their inception, up and coming German outfit OCEANS have dropped jaws everywhere they went. With a unique sound that sits somewhere between nu-metal, progressive, post and death metal and putting mental health at the top of their agenda, the four piece quickly became a known constant in today’s metal landscape. OCEANS have become known for their inclination towards innovation and experimentation within their genre; covering songs by the likes of Alessia Cara and collaborating with prominent musicians such as MACHINE HEAD’s Robb Flynn and CALIBAN’s Andy Dörner amongst others. Having released two EPs in 2019, their debut album in 2020 and another EP in 2021, the band featuring visionary mastermind Timo Rotten can easily be described as one of Europe’s hardest and fastest working bands in the genre. Enter 2022 and OCEANS have already proved that they’re set to continue on their upwards trajectory with the release of their trilogy Hell Is Where The Heart Is – Part I: Love, it’s follow-up Hell Is Where The Heart Is – Part II: Longing and Hell Is Where The Heart Is – Part III: Clarity, which together form their second album Hell Is Where The Heart Is.
