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.
