Oceans Ate Alaska - Vultures And Sharks (video)
Straight forward screaming and angsty metal. If college bro emometal is your thing, then Oceans Ate Alaska are for you. They are formulaic, by the numbers, nothing new to hear. The band is tight. And their debut album Lost Isles releases on February 20th.

The album comes out November 15 on the Polish label Selfmadegod Records. The album is a concept album, an abstract vision that encompasses the 'death of the human form to the sacrifice of flesh into the Earth.' The album's visual theme is based on "Finis Gloriae Mundi," a 17th century painting b…
