Having been a fan of earlier music by The Ocean (a proud owner of fluxion) i was looking forward to the new album and to see how, and if, they had progressed and settled musically.

i was not dissapointed, this album improves the metal elements with excellent heavy riffs and beats with brutal vocals and licks whilst the softer elements have great sounds with wonderful melodies. even a touch of dillinger escape plan has entered with guitar licks adventurous and exciting.

stand out tracks are Ectasian, Rhyacian and Stenian which all combine the heavy style that has been greatly improved from Aeloian and the softer melodic post-rock rythms to great effect.

in my mind they are an exciting and new (i say new as this album i feel is their first comfortable and competant album of this quality) entry into the genre that has become a little repetitve. Isis remain at the head but The Ocean ahev surely overtaken some old favorites like Cult of Luna or Neurosis.

A fantastic album to revitalise the genre and look out for new albums by Rosetta and Russian Circles in 2008 who i hope live up to path set down by The Ocean.

Initially stumbled across this band while going to see Intronaut play. Unfortunately Intronaut didn't make the gig, which was a real downer. That was until The Ocean blew me away with their ferocious set!

Having bought this album afterwards, listen upon listen brings back the intense moments of their live show. The album is split over two CDs. The first Hadean/Archaean is a straight up assault with bellowing vocals, chugging and intricate guitar work. The second Proterozoic is much more diverse. Tracks shift in tempo and mood with piano and violin passages taking you on a journey. The difference in vocals adds another dimension and really builds with intensity. The glossy packaging is beautiful and only adds to the quality that lies inside. If you like music with depth, buy this!

Maybe i have just heard too much metal?

Although certainly listenable, well structured and technically proficient, i can't feel any stops being pulled that make me think "I have to add this to my collection".

The packaging is absolutely top notch, to a similar degree as Tool's latest album "10,000 Snores".

I think if i had only just gotten into metal, i would hold it in a higher regard, but as it stands i have listened to it 3 times on my mp3 player and it has since lain dormant, much like "Death Magnetic".

Think i have listened to the new Cynic track more times than all the tracks on both albums put together.
