[News] German Atmospheric Post-Metal outfit The Ocean drops new live video for “Jurassic | Cretaceous”

German Atmospheric Post-Metal outfit The Ocean has released new live video for the track “Jurassic | Cretaceous.” Watch the video through the YouTube player below:

Filmed & produced by Alex Kraudelt for Frameshock Productions on tour in 2022. Mixed and mastered by Loïc Rossetti.

Phanerozoic II is more experimental, more eclectic in musical style and direction, and more varied in terms of tempos, beats, guitar work and the use of electronics,” notes Staps. “This was an intentional choice: we wanted Part I to feel rather streamlined and to have a strong cohesion between the individual songs. We wanted to create a certain vibe to linger from the first until the last note throughout the whole record. We kept the weirder, more daring and more progressive material for Part II. The outcome is a record that is a real journey. It starts in one place, and concludes in a totally different place. In a way, it relates to Pelagial, which was similar in that it was also a journey: but a more guided, focused and predictable one. Phanerozoic II on the other hand is closer to the experience of free fall.

Divided into two sections – Mesozoic and Cenozoic – “Phanerozoic II” once again showcases the detail and depth that have become two of The Ocean’s most enduring trademarks. While ostensibly delving into the extraordinary realities of the Earth’s shifting temporal tides, Staps and his comrades have long drawn hazy parallels between their chosen subjects and the emotional experiences that their music strives to convey. “Phanerozoic II” is essentially an album about time, with some very poignant and pointed allusions to the modern world woven into the new music’s spiritual fabric.
