Berlin progressive metal crew The Ocean Collective aka The Ocean are returning to Aotearoa for the first time since 2015. The group are touring on the back of their brand new seventh full-length offering Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic, which references the 500 million-year eon in Earth’s formation which led up to the present day, and is currently the number one best-selling metal album on Bandcamp in the world. If you needed any convincing of the band’s caliber, they run acclaimed post rock / post-metal label Pelagic Records and have shared the stage with mind-expanding heavy acts such as Opeth, Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Anathema, as well as Japanese post-rock maestros Mono, which the crew shared a split 7” vinyl release with in 2015.
