The Ocean • Fluxion [3xLP]
Fluxion by The Ocean on triple vinyl in gatefold cover.
This release includes the original 2004 version but also the re-edition of 2009 with vocals by Mike Pilat.
InfoThe Ocean from Germany is formed around Robin Staps (who also runs Pelagic Records) and used to be The Ocean Collective. More than 30 members played in this Berlin based collective until it turned into a more stable line-up in 2009 when they recorded Heliocentric and Antropocentric.
The Ocean is always a wall of sound energy coming at you. This wall is not as polished as their later built walls. Fluxion, their very first album, takes a little bit more time to investigate a theme and work with it. It doesn't have that much progressive influence as their later albums. But of course it's still heavy, loud and full of energy.
