New Band To Burn One To-Black Ocean

The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Black Ocean.


BlackOcean was formed early 2008 by long-time friends and songwriters Jason Burchfield and Steve Hunter. The initial lineup consisted of bassist Spike Justis, who departed the band in early 2010, and replaced with long-time friend Joe Maurone from Philadelphia. In 2010, BlackOcean acquired guitarist Zack Blickos to complete the final lineup.

With their many influences, ranging from Metallica, Dream Theater, Rush, Sabbath, Life of Agony and so many others, this unique band delivers the hardcore sounds, technical styles and signature tempos that separate them from most music that is out there today!

Taking 90's influences such as White Zombie and Deftones and mixing it together with progressive metal and a blistering groove, New Jersey's Black Ocean will drown you with their tidal wave of crunchy guitars, sonic drum blasts and inspired songwriting.

BlackOcean plans to release its debut album "Sea Of Darkness" sometime early 2011 on Toil Records. The album was recorded and engineered by Kevin Hogan from KHSTUDIO in NJ. Stay tuned for the official release date, coming soon...
