Oceanhoarse, the four-piece heavy metal outfit from Helsinki, Finland, has been operating a couple of years with a relentless self-made attitude releasing a bunch of singles, an EP “Voluntary Bends” in 2019 and a live album “The Damage is Done – LIVE!” in 2020.

Oceanhoarse might be a newcomer in the field of heavy metal, but boy have they been coming fast – and loud. The Helsinki-based band with Ben Varon (ex-Amoral) on the guitar, Jyri Helko (Warmen, ex-For The Imperium) on the bass, Oskari Niemi on the drums and Joonas Kosonen on the vocals have already been touring widely in Finland, Tokyo, Japan and all around Europe (supporting Nightwish singer-bassist Marko Hietala).
The band released “The Damage Is Done – LIVE!” album from that tour on June 2020, and Oceanhoarse’s debut studio album will be released in August 2021 on Noble Demon!
Indeed, the heavy metal group makes a statement against computerized metal music where it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s not – with this band, praised for their wild energy on stage, what you see is what you get, with no backing tracks; a rarity in the heavy music field these days.
Featured also on the soundtrack of the massively popular video game Wreckfest, Oceanhoarse‘s singles have streamed already close to two million times only on Spotify.
The band describes itself with the words: ”We are Oceanhoarse from Helsinki, Finland and we play heavy fucking metal.”
