Oceanus - "Sirens" (Hawk Moon Records )

"Incorporating ambient and shoegazing music with numerous metal and rock influences "Sirens" is the debut album by UK based duo Oceanus. Formed in 2008 by Alex Fawcett (Arboretus) and Rob Honey (Damn Robot! & Inachus), Oceanus performed extensively across the United Kingdom as a 5 piece before the band was forced into an undetermined hiatus in 2011. A year later Alex and Rob, who have now been writing and performing together in various guises for around a decade, decided to revive Oceanus and begin releasing new music. Sirens is just the beginning of what promises to be a bright future for the post-metallers..." (Words from release page)

Notti insonni trascorse in mari agitati contrastano con fresche e quiete mattine. Destra e sinistra che si guardano incuriosite allo specchio. Rabbia che risale da un appartamento ricoperto da un'inutile frenesia. Pulsazioni riverberate da oscure ed umide caverne. Energica ed innocente gioventù, eternamente intenta a colorare i propri sogni. Spazi ariosi si alternano a linee gialle e rosse di buie vie cittadine. Volti indistinguibili si succedono come fotogrammi velocizzati. Un'ingiallita cartolina timbrata Seattle giace al muro dimenticata. Richieste di soccorso approvate con finzione mentre tutto procede inesorabilmente come il giorno prima. Un esercito di suono che avanza con maestosità e supponenza. "Sirens" è blu-scuro, è notturno, e si imbeve in un'immortale cupezza esistenziale.

P.S. The free download allowance has run out over on the Hawk Moon Records bandcamp page, so for the time being they're set to £1. They should be set to name your price (incl. free) again shortly. We'll be using some of the CD sale profit to get some more free download allowance. (Notes from Oceanus FB page)
