Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Fogdiver is an EP release by German/ multinational post hardcore/ metal act The Ocean. Unlike their 2001 Islands/Tides promo ( I haven´t heard their 2002 promo), Fogdiver is an instrumental effort. The EP contains five tracks and has a total playing time of 29:57 minutes.

The music is a mix of post rock and more heavy post hardcore/ metal sections. Knowing The Ocean´s album releases, Fogdiver is actually surprisingly less heavy than what I had expected. I was reminded of Mogwai a couple of times. There are still plenty of heavy parts for the metal heads though, so don´t despair if that´s your poison.

The production is professional and suits the music well.

No vocals in post hardcore/ metal is always an obstacle for me, but with Fogdiver, The Ocean prove that instrumental post hardcore/ metal can be highly entertaining and quite clever as well. They would not pursue this style though as they would add raw vocals to their music on the debut full-length album Fluxion (2004). Fogdiver deserves a 3.5 star rating.

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

This rare-as-hell EP comes as a very pleasant surprise; something I just found by chance in a used record store. The rarity aside, this is a must-have for any fan of the Ocean right off the bat. Although the digipak the CD comes in is professional and neat, the 'underground' nature is seen inside; Robin Staps actually includes his mailing address inside for people to write him. As a completely instrumental album, The Ocean actually gives out the request that they would like people to send in their recordings of what they think the vocals should sound like! By that alone, this is obviously a unique and daring project, especially for a band that was virtually unknown at the time.

While I can see some people having a difficulty with the fact that it is completely void of singing, it really seems to let the compositions flow the way they want to. Without having to worry about throwing in vocal sections, things are allowed to become as atmospheric, or dark as they need to be. With an impressive production standard to boot, the Ocean goes from some brutally heavy sludge metal to lighter (yet always unsettling) post-rock tendencies. Although the general mood (the band themselves describe it as 'beautiful discomfort') remains the same throughout, many different timbres are employed, and non-metal instruments such as the piano and cello are introduced not just for novelty's sake, but to meaningfully add something new to the music.

The highlight on the album is undoubtedly the final track; 'The Long Road To Nha Trang.' With schizophrenic melodies and atonal guitar work, it almost seems that the entire album was leading up to this; even though the rest of it is filled with high points. While there is no showboating whatsoever, the technicality shifts into the next gear to the point where parts feel like aural madness. I would strongly suggest checking out this track right now so you can see what great music this EP has to offer.

The music in itself might be a bit of a mixed bag, but the quality of the overall package and the spirit behind it is certainly worth a purchase and a look into.
