Oceanwake are a band from Finland that plays a progressive mixture of doom, death and post metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Earthen" which was released by ViciSolum Records.
Avant garde soundscapes start off the album along with some heavy yet melodic doom metal riffing a few seconds later while clean guitar is also used quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awile grim screams are added onto the recording.
Death metal growls are also a very huge part of the recording while the music also adds in a touch of black metal and the synths also bring in a great amount of atmospheric sounding synths along with clean singing and elements of post rock being added onto the recording and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Oceanwake plays a musical style that takes atmospheric doom, death, progressive and post metal and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Oceanwake are a very great sounding progressive mixture of doom, death and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Storm Sermon". 8 out of 10.
