MP3 REVIEW: Oceanus “Sirens”

                These seven songs are a bit all over the place, but they manage to remain in some sort of structure so as to not make them completely random in nature.

                We open thinking it might be instrumental post rock.  Vocals come in and it gets heavy, but I can still see it as being something suited for Deep Elm.   

                There aren’t really a lot of vocals, but the guitars come through crunchy.   Then on the song “Nautica” is gets all the hardcore starts and stops with screaming interlaced.  This reminds me more of a band like Eyes Like Mirrors (or Her Stems Spiral) and I feel like this might even be post hardcore.

                We end on a song called “Waves” which just has some straight up singing.  I’m left a little confused, a little unsure where on the map to place this, but I do still like it and that’s all that really matters.
