OCEANWAKE - Inked A Deal With Lifeforce Records

Finnish atmospheric post-heavy-doom band Oceanwake have signed a deal with Lifeforce Records. Oceanwake was established in the autumn of 2009 in a tiny and idyllic Finnish coastal town called Luvia, where most of the bands musicians were born. Though everyone has since moved away from the town, the somewhat eccentric and unique spirit of Luvia is still strongly present in their music. It is quite apparent that Oceanwake draws from a wide variety of influences, be it the music, the lyrics or the visuals - not to mention their live show which features a podium for the vocalist, situated upstage next to the drummer. But what's more important, they have succeeded in mixing all the ingredients so perfectly that it's almost impossible to find a specific genre to file them under. There is an indescribable twist in their approach to metal music that it keeps the focus on the music instead of "metal". It's melodic, fragile and soothing at one moment but raw, relentless and downright frightening at another. Like a hovering mist on a placid shore in contrast with a raging storm that sweeps across the ocean.
The debut album Kingdom (2013) gathered mostly positive reviews. It captured very well the essence of their formative years, when they naturally were a new band in search of their own form of expression. On their second album, the critically acclaimed Sunless (2015), the songwriting was far more together but not any less adventurous. With Earthen (2017), they took another enormous step on a ladder where their only competition seems to be themselves.
"After we had concluded our massive trilogy (Kingdom-Sunless-Earthen, 2013-2017) we decided it was time to start the search of a new label. We received quite a few offers, but when Lifeforce approached us, the decision was a no-brainer. The label was familiar to us via friends in bands like Omnium Gatherum and Hanging Garden. They spoke nothing but good about Lifeforce and encouraged us to get on board. We deeply appreciate the chance to work in collaboration with such a fine label, who have helped many great bands to the height of their careers. This contract is really pushing us forward now, as we're composing new material for our first release via Lifeforce", comments the band the signing to Lifeforce Records.
