A year after completing the recording of their hugely successful 2009 debut, DEPTHS, Chicago's deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO are heading back into the studio to record their follow-up. Set for release later this year, the new album will tell a story that promises to open eyes and deliver a more mature experience than many might normally expect. "Expect us to go DEEPER than DEPTHS this time around, and NOT just meaning heavier;" says vocalist, Adam Warren. "This is more than just our sophomore album. It is a great vision to be accomplished when all of the pieces we've worked so hard to create - art, music, lyrics and overall atmosphere - come together."
In order to make OCEANO's vision a reality, the band has enlisted the help of Zeuss to produce the record. Zeuss, one of the most well regarded producers in metal today, has worked with acts like MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED and SHADOWS FALL. Known for exponentially increasing an act's natural abilities while in the studio, Zeuss is enthusiastic at the chance to take OCEANO to the next level. "I'm really excited to be working on the new Oceano record.;" says the Springfield, MA-based producer. "I see this as a great opportunity to work with one of the truly talented up and coming bands in the metal genre." Knowing how important it is to extend the band's reach from within their already dominant grasp on the deathcore scene, Zeuss adds; "I look forward to pushing the band to their full potential
and making them stand above the rest."
