OCEANO – ‘CONTAGION’ DEBUTS IN THE BILLBOARD TOP 200

OCEANO‘s new album, CONTAGION sold 2,955 copies in its first week of release, landing the Chicago deathcore heavyweights at number 163 on the Billboard Top 200. The band also debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 3. This is a tremendous achievement for the young band and only cements their role as a legitimate force in the metal world. “We’re excited to have made the charts;” says OCEANO‘s formidable frontman, Adam Warren. “We also know that this or any other success we’ve faced would have been possible without the support of our loyal fans and listeners. Thanks a lot and we’ll catch you on tour.”

OCEANO‘s highly anticipated sophomore release, CONTAGION is now out in North America. Produced by Zeuss (MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), the new album is about a government-born virus that becomes an epidemic and spreads chaos amongst the population. CONTAGION is a major step forward for OCEANO. Their signature breakdowns and inhuman heaviness is still intact, but the band’s traditional death metal influence now shines through more than ever, leading to a stronger melding of old school and modern extremities.
