The Ocean has announced that LoÃ¯c Rossetti has joined the progressive hardcore/metal outfit. Guitarist Robin Staps had this to say:
Having LoÃ¯c in the band enables me to do what I've always been wanting to do with this band. His voice is strong and expressive and his variety of tone and the ease with which he switches between different vocal styles really amazing. There are no limits anymore. His screams are devastating, but his most valuable quality is his singing voice, which we will employ much more on the upcoming album.
The band is currently working on two albums to be released in March 2010. They issued the 2CD Precambrian in 2007.
