For decades, US and British artists dominated the rock scene with just a few exceptions, until globalization, the internet, and social media overturned the entire music industry on the brink of the millennia.
For heavy music styles in particular, the artists’ origin is no longer a factor for popularity and acceptance in the United States. It opened an incredible opportunity for Oceans on Orion, a modern metal powerhouse from the vibrant cultural landscape of Israel that has already made its mark on the rock scene in the UK and Israel since 2019, and they are regulars at Israel’s major metal show PsychoWard Fest.
There are songs that not just radiate emotions but tell a compelling story. Such songs definitely stand out as their lyrics, amplified with powerful music, deeply resonate with people, with their own feelings, thoughts, and experiences. The story told in the new single "Let's Break Out" by New Jersey rockers Uncured is a mesmerizing manifestation of empowerment that encourages freedom and individuality.
The song was released on January 27, 2023 as a part of the band’s upcoming EP My Design, which is anticipated to become materialized in the summer on June 2, 2023, via Pavement Entertainment. "Let's Break Out" official music video was released on February 10.
Tel Aviv, May 20th 2022 - Oceans On Orion reveals their third single Weaponized Misery featuring a special guest - Ran Yerushalmi, a frontman of the Walkways band, taken from OOO’s upcoming album to be released soon via LMH Records. The new single offers powerful duo extending the band’s musical range and vocal styles fueled by shredding guitars of Sergei Metalheart and Amit Fortus and driven by heavy rhythm section charged by bassist / vocalist Guy Schwartz and drummer Aviram Zeevy.
The duo is unpacking the polarizing tension of living through constant conflict. In a misshapen mirror image of the political dynamics of the day, the two singers square off to the thunderous beat of the song's heavy rhythm section. They exchange accusations and denounce the others' narrative. In the end, there is no resolution, only the unified march, and suffering of those condemned to live under these circumstances.
Following its hit video Tomorrow's Rain, Israel power house Oceans on Orion released a new smashing single LOVE on March 31, 2022. This new video is the energetic follow-up work as a part of the Oceans on Orion's upcoming debut album.
Mixing modern metal with pop influences LOVE explores how our relationships force us to wear masks and the consequences of taking them off. The song's dynamic vocal performance features soaring clean melodies, deep growls and three part harmonies. A nostalgic bow to late 2000's emo reinterpreted in today's modern metal aesthetic.
Oceans on Orion, modern metal band from Israel, released Tomorrow's Rain video on the 7th of January. They're kicking off the countdown to their debut album release with a music video shot by the Dead Sea.

The band hovers like ghosts over saline, dead water, confronting their own reflections, calling for tomorrow’s rain.
