Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Fluxion is the debut studio album from german experimental post hardcore act The Ocean ( also refered to as The Ocean Collective because of the large number of members). The Ocean recorded a large number of songs for this session and ended up with enough songs for two albums. Fluxion consists of the most experimental and melodic songs from the recording session while the second album from The Ocean called Aeolian consists of the most raw and brutal hardcore songs from the same session. Fluxion is proabably the best place to start for progressive rock fans as there are many influences from progressive rock on Fluxion.

The music on Fluxion is post hardcore based but with lots of experiments and progressive touches. There are lots of classical influences on the album and there are both violin, cello and clarinet used in the songs. The music is very heavy with sharp distorted guitar riffing, pounding drums and an angry sounding frontman. There are only very few clean vocals on the album but when they appear in Isla Del Sol itīs a positive surprise which is great for the diversity on the album. Other standout tracks would be the symphonic opener Nazca and the ending 14:33 minute long The Greatest Bane. The Greatest Bane touches Post metal territory with itīs slow to mid pace but most of the heavy parts on the album is in post hardcore territory. There are also some really agressive hardcore tracks in Comfort Zones and Dead On The Whole while Fluxion and Loopholes shows a more quiet and subtle side of The Ocean. This is the kind of album that deserves to be listened to from start to end though as all the songs toghether form a kind of musical concept.

The musicianship is excellent and the many layers of instruments really adds a lot to the mood. The music is very dynamic with both soft beatiful parts and loud heavy parts.

The production is really good even though the drums could have had a better sound IMO. Itīs not a problem though just an aquired taste Iīm sure.

The Ocean has really made an impressive and varied debut album and Fluxion is without a doubt one of the best post hardcore releases I have heard. If youīre familiar with other post hardcore acts like Burst, Breach and Memfis youīll probably find great pleasure in Fluxion. 4 stars is well deserved for this excellent and original album. I might even upgrade this album sometime in the future thatīs how great I think it is.

4 stars 'Fluxion' - The Ocean (8/10)

A fine contrast to the heavier, raw second album of this German experimental metal band, 'Fluxion' introduces The Ocean (also known as the Ocean Collective) as a post-metal band that isn't afraid to throw ample amounts of heaviness in as well. Combining the traditional primitive nature of sludge metal with classically-influenced post-rock, there is a very distinctive, dystopian sound here. While 'Fluxion' can be considered as heavy as any other Ocean release, there is alot of melody here that helps lend some powerful atmosphere and ambience to this monster of an album.

While the guitars and vocals can at times be a bit too primal for their own good, a deceptively amazing sense of flow and classical arrangements take 'Fluxion' not shared by most of it's post-hardcore contemporaries. Much like an ocean, The Ocean is vast and massive. What really differentiates this from most other 'post-music' is that there is an abundance of riffs to delve into. While the purely 'post-rock' sections certainly lend a hand to tradition in that they focus on atmosphere, the same unsettling vibe is given throughout. Atonality is used alot here, and it works very well with the more harmonious elements.

'Nazca' is a powerful instrumental opener that really shows what the album is about, intelligent power. Some interesting melodic passages play on top of the brutality, leading seamlessly into the first 'vocal' track, 'The Human Stain.' While this second track begins on a bit of a sour note (there is too much noise and distortion to really get a grip on it) it eventually leads into a middle instrumental section which is really gorgeous and well- arranged. Many of the songs on 'Fluxion' segue into each other, in fact; giving the impression of a running-long track, although each of the songs function as single units.

The last two songs are almost at 'epic' length; the last of the two being almost fifteen minutes in length. 'Isla Del Sol' is my personal favourite of the album, being an apparent counterpart to the track 'Isla Del Luna' from the fantastic EP 'Fogdiver.' It builds up very well, seemingly climaxing at the first (and only) melodic vocal section of the whole album. There are recurring riffs that play throughout the whole song, but the repetition does not make it feel recycled and tired at all. After 'Isla Del Sol' wraps up, it's time for the real epic of the album; 'The Greatest Bane.' I have to say, this is a real monster of a song that functions as a perfect finale to 'Fluxion.' All of the tricks in the book are brought up to the forefront, including the heavy riff sections, string section ambience, and unsettling beauty that makes this band so great.

'Fluxion' has some parts that feel a bit too excessive, but it really is a work of grandeur; especially considering it was the project's debut album. While a later work 'Precambrian' is arguably better and more cohesive, 'Fluxion' stands as being a fantastic debut work, and recommended to anyone that is into the work's genre.
