A six-minute trailer for "Contagion", the new album from Chicago deathcore heavyweights OCEANO, can be viewed below. Due on November 9 via Earache Records, the CD takes the band's signature sound to new levels of backbreaking heaviness. However, underneath the chunky breakdowns and terrifying growls lies a story about absolute power, absolute corruption and the evil that exists when everything is put together.
"'Contagion' surrounds the listener in a story of a highly contagious epidemic purposely spread upon the population by corrupt positions of power," says vocalist Adam Warren. "'Contagion''s concept further unfolds as the agenda of these actions are exposed and the real chaos ensues."
"Contagion" track listing:
01. Precursor To Enslavement
02. Viral Re-Animation
03. Regulated Disposal Of Life
05. The Contaminated
06. Exist In Confinement
07. Persuasive Oppression

10. Remnants Aflame
