The in 2010 founded quintet Ocean of Plague from Ulm/Stuttgart combines death-metal with finest hardcore elements, completed by the fresh sound of the modern era with a breeze of progressive.
Ocean of Plague is more than just a name – there’s a meaning to it: “Plague” stands for a thunderous load of powerful riffs, which floods everything like a sudden tsunami. The antipole “Ocean” is represented by atmospheric and progressive melodies. The group implements the song-structures and the instruments without knotting itself, so that there is no loss of variety. In conclusion broadly conceived lyrics are used in combination with all kinds of the guttural techniques to create a vortex which threatens to drag everything down.
Through their in October 2011 released 7-Track EP “Existence Sold” is the troop setting up for their impulsive live shows, which will become extended by new songs.
The band plays shows since the beginning of the year 2012 and already shared the stages with international stars like Texas in July (USA), Silent Screams (UK), Hills Have Eyes (P), Auburn (USA) and Checkmate (FR).
Ocean of Plague is on its best way to move on… like an advancing plague.
