OCEANS | Band release official video for new single ‘Dark’

Austrian-German post death metallers OCEANS are set to release their debut album The Sun And The Cold on January 10, 2020 via Nuclear Blast. After teasing fans with snippets from the 2nd single ‘Dark’, the band is proud to present the full track in the form of a music video today. Produced by their long-time friend and videographer Niklas Karrenbauer (motiviert.org), the video features ARROGANZvocalist/bassist K and can be watched here:

Vocalist/guitarist Timo Rotten says, “We wanted to make a song that feels like being crushed by a bulldozer, while being its driver at the same time. If you love extreme music, ‘Dark’ won’t leave you untouched. This thing is wild.”
