Official Anubi Press Press Release
Progressive Metallers Oceana, historical band of the Roman scene in which Massimiliano Pagliuso, guitarist of Novembre plays, have signed for Time To Kill Records for the release of their first album, “The Pattern”.
A short teaser is already available below:
Oceana were born in 1994 from the friendship between Massimiliano Pagliuso and Alessandro “Sancho” Marconcini (to which, in 1997, Gianpaolo Caprino will be added). The intent was to mix Progressive elements with European-style Death Doom. The references, from the musical point of view, range from Edge Of Sanity by Dan Swanö to Katatonia, from Paradise Lost to Duran Duran, from Metallica to Dream Theater, in a very personal fusion of different genres and sounds.
After a first EP, dating back to 1996, the band returned to the studio in 2019 to record their first full-length album, “The Pattern” (mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios), and entrusted the realization of the album cover to Travis Smith. The band’s return to the scene also sees a change of logo by the great Daniele Valeriani, an artist who has been able to perfectly represent the new image of the Roman trio.
Further details on the release of the album and other Oceana activities will be revealed soon.
