"I'm very excited to help out the CG guys on their next tour in Canada. The second I got the call, I was instantly into the idea -- especially considering i became good friends with Blind Witness on the over the limit tour. I also am a fan and have supported CG and Atilla since they first came on the scene so it will be fun to finally get the chance to hang with everyone. Personally this was an opportunity I couldn't pass up."

Chicago grind/deathcore act Oceano have released a statement in regards to their upcoming studio album "Contagion." The album is being produced by famed producer Zuess who has worked with The Acacia Strain, Municipal Waste and Hatebreed amongst others.
Oceano bassist Jason Jones commented by saying:
"We’ve been working with Zeuss for a couple weeks now and this album is sounding incredible so far. All of the drums are finished for every song, we’ve got the rhythms done for 7 of the songs so we’re gonna finish up those either tomorrow or the next day, then I’ll record the bass. We’ve also got vocals done for 2 of the songs. Zeuss has been drilling the band everyday pushing us to our limits to make this the best possible record it can be. If something played sucks he’ll say "nah man that sucks do it again" and that’s what every band needs out of a producer. This album is going to blow "depths" out of the water." More...
Over a year after the release of their 2009 Billboard-charting debut "Depths," Chicago deathcore act Oceano has begun recording a followup album to be released later this year.

Oceano front man Adam Warren chimes in from the studio with a brief update:
"As of last night we finished up drum tracking! Danny's a little monster and flew through everything in a 2 1/2 days. Now we're onto guitars today. We're excited to begin and work with Zeuss as we are looking forward to getting his input on what we have come up with. We are all confident he's going to help further creation of Contagion to be even more infectious to all of your ears. Let it spread!"

Chicago deathcore band OCEANO is heading back into the studio to record their follow-up to their 2009 debut album "Depths." Set for release later this year, the new album will tell a story that promises to open eyes and deliver a more mature experience than many might normally expect. "Expect us to go DEEPER than DEPTHS this time around, and NOT just meaning heavier;" says vocalist, Adam Warren. "This is more than just our sophomore album. It is a great vision to be accomplished when all of the pieces we've worked so hard to create - art, music, lyrics and overall atmosphere - come together."
In order to make OCEANO's vision a reality, the band has enlisted the help of Zeuss to produce the record. Zeuss, one of the most well regarded producers in metal today, has worked with acts like MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED and SHADOWS FALL. Known for exponentially increasing an act's natural abilities while in the studio, Zeuss is enthusiastic at the chance to take OCEANO to the next level. "I'm really excited to be working on the new Oceano record.;" says the Springfield, MA-based producer. "I see this as a great opportunity to work with one of the truly talented up and coming bands in the metal genre." Knowing how important it is to extend the band's reach from within their already dominant grasp on the deathcore scene, Zeuss adds; "I look fo rward to pushing the band to their full potential and making them stand above the rest."

Paul Ablaze of Montreal's Blackguard has checked in with the following recap of the From Afar tour, headlined by Ensiferum this past fall:
"Another tour in the Bag , Another notch on the belt , and Another round of good times were had by all.
"For a tour that seemed destined to fall apart on itself just before it's start, I believe it exceeded all expectation by a long shot. With Ex Deo pulling out for the majority of the tour and Hypocrisy having to bail all together, the future looked very bleak. But at the end of the day it was Ensiferums call to bite the bullet and pull ahead with the tour, and for that we cannot thank them enough.
"As disappointed as we were not being able to tour with those two amazing bands, their absences proved to be a blessing in disguise. Being bumped up to direct support might have been one of the best things to happen to us, and with the addition of Lazarus A.D we got to become friends with some of the most badass people we've ever met.
"Although the crowds might have been smaller overall, we got to play to more people every night and our new position on the tour certainly motivated us to step up our game.
"This tour being quite the contrast to our last tour (Summer slaughter) in pace and scale, it was a little more relaxed and offered us some more down time to breath. That being said here are some of my more memorable moments from 'from afar' More...

Guitarist Josh James comments on the song titles, "We've always had a lot of pop culture references in our song titles and this record is no exception.
