Oceanis — det metal band from Liverpool, UK.
We are Oceanis, a 5 piece metal band from Liverpool, UK. We five driven individuals with a passion for creating music that is bold, dynamic and above all, exceptionally heavy.
Combining technical riffs, lifting choruses and sparing moments of clarity, we aim to bludgeon and sooth the listener. Drawing influence from bands such as Lamb Of God, Textures, Opeth, Gojira, Deftones and Mastodon, we put our all into everything we do in order to create the best possible music we can but always striving to do better. Our live shows always promise to be exciting and explosive.
