I AM THE OCEAN
...AND YOUR CITY NEEDS SWALLOWING
I Am the Ocean is a band whose stellar musical prowess, rich textures, powerful sound, and diverse influences shine brightly through each of the 11 tracks which comprise ...AND YOUR CITY NEEDS SWALLOWING. With ties to post-hardcore, metal, and prog rock battling for dominance, the listener truly receives a treat in hearing the fight unfold, as the mind-tripping heavily-effected elements shifts the band's solid hardcore punk and current metal heavy to new dimensions on cuts like "A Going Under". While some may scream Coheed, others may shout Tool, while still more will give a yell for Cave-In, this Salt Lake City quintet creates dramatic and dynamic music with a prominent heaviness leading the charge that incites, excites, and has the diversity to resonate to a plethora of hard music fans from the adventurous to the moshpit maven.
