Ocean of Grief’s Melodic Doom/Death dates back to 2016 when their first musical endeavor, the “Fortress Of My Dark Self” EP saw the light of day. This EP had a deep influence by the sound of bands like Slumber, Enshine, Draconian and Saturnus. The gloomy but melancholic feeling of the EP, was followed by the self-released single “After a Long Time” and eventually the band’s first full length album “Nightfall’s Lament”, which took a deeper dive into darkness and despair.
Now in 2023, Pale existence comes to life and this time the approach of the music is even darker and more melodic with a superb production and a composition that is full of hooks, soundscapes and ambiances that take the listener from dark to light in no time. It is dynamic, spiritual and for sure on of the best releases of the genre this year.
