Over the last couple of years Ocean has established themselves as an unparalleled current in the east coast metal scene. Here Where Nothing Grows is their debut full length album of 3 rogue waves clocking in at a full 65 fathoms. This is a slow ancient doom harnessing the deep low end drone of the Earth/Sunn, Burzum's screams, the crushing heaviness of Buried At Sea, and even the art rock of Mogwai. However, these obvious audio touchstones couldn't possibly prepare you for Here Where Nothing Grows, an album that can only happen in one place, by one group in a coastal Maine city nestled against the crashing waves of the cold Atlantic sea. Here Where Nothing Grows was originally recorded by a physically and emotionally exhausted Ocean at Volume Studios in Chicago with Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea/Pelican) at the tail end of a self destructive mini tour. The group returned home minus a drummer unhappy with the results of the Chicago sessions. With a new drummer in tow they immediately settled in to a familiar studio in Portland and began the arduous task of re-recording Here Where Nothing Grows on their own. Two months later Ocean emerged rejuvinated with a brand new testament to what Ocean is and can be. A thundering low end, crushing sloth-slow riffs, and distant tortured vocals Here Where Nothing Grows is an unprecidented doom with each track pushing over 20 minutes.
