Oceano Comments On Upcoming Tour Dates

Chicago deathcore act Oceano is gearing up for a European tour with Louisiana metallers IWrestledABearOnce. The "Ruining Earth For Everybody" tour kicks off this Friday, September 7th in Karlsruhe, Germany, and also features Vanna and For All Those Sleeping. The tour will be Oceano's second ever visit to Europe. Oceano frontman Adam Warren comments:

"Almost a month following our 'comeback', we got an amazing call. It was the offer for Oceano to tour with IWABO. Of course, we immediately said yes, still not knowing we'd be graced with doing TWO back-to-back tours in two months with them. Upon finding this out, we all simultaneously vomited and shit our pants in pure excitement! It was a full body explosion from almost every orifice.

"Aside from my gratuitous bodily fluid references, I (along with the other members of Oceano) have loved the IWABO folks since we first met and toured with them oh so long ago on our first European tour (Never Say Die). A solid mutual respect and friendship was formed and we are really excited to be reunited with plenty of time to get stupid with each other.

"We were also very stoked to find out our very close partners in PARTY and friends, Within The Ruins will be joining us on the US side of touring with IWABO. This is going to be a long but unforgettable fun couple of months for everyone! See you all soon!"

Report

Summer Slaughter at Chicago's House of Blues

The House of Blues once again had issues with their guest list coming in too late. And of course that meant that I missed the first three acts and therefore have absolutely nothing to say about Within the Ruins, Fleshgod Apocalypse or As Blood Runs Black. Despite me giving an otherwise positive review to the new Fleshgod Apocalypse album, I had to wait in the front foyer while they played.

Thankfully, I was able to get into the venue by the time that Oceano began playing. Even though I hate ripping on hometown bands, Adam Warren sounded like he was choking on something throughout the entire set. Outside of their vocalist sounding hoarse the entire time, there was nothing remarkable about Oceano. They're yet another generic deathcore band that does nothing to stand out. I seriously can’t tell the difference between them and about twenty other deathcore bands that I've heard.

After Oceano finished playing, I was thankfully treated to Powerglove, a video game music cover band. I'll be the first guy to admit that I'm a complete and utter nerd and I've been a gamer since the Sega Genesis, so I naturally loved this band. And given that there is a TON of video game music that needs a metal remix, I'm hoping to see Powerglove have a long and prosperous career. (They still need to cover Grabbag from Duke Nukem 3D.)

And even for non-gamers out there, Powerglove put on a VERY good show. Between having a contest to bring the band the head of a stuffed animal and tossing blow-up swords into the audience, they were clearly one of the best band's there in terms of sheer theatricality. I'm really looking forward to seeing this band do a longer set in the future. More...

Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder commented, "After months in secrecy, it brings us great pleasure to finally reveal our headlining status for this year's Summer Slaughter festivities. It is a great honor to be asked to play with so many talented bands… we had a killer time last round and this year will be no exception. Beers bongs will be had, horns will fly, and legions of metal fans will be left devastated! Bring your daughter to the slaughter… or something."

"We are excited to be a part of this year's Summer Slaughter tour. The past two years we have done big outside festival summer tours so it will be awesome to make it more intimate this summer and do a tour like Summer Slaughter. In 2008 we opened Summer Slaughter and now just 3 years later we will be back playing alongside some great bands and friends. I couldn't think of a more perfect way to return to the Summer Slaughter tour!" adds Alex Wade of Whitechapel.

Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under commented, "We're honored to have the opportunity to share the stage this summer with the best of the best in metal today…all that attend the 5th annual Summer Slaughter Tour will be left six feet under!"
