Stemming from Birmingham, UK, Oceans Ate Alaska is made up of James Kennedy (Guitar), Adam Zytkiewicz (Guitar), Mike Stanton (Bass), and Chris Turner (Drums). The bandoffers a progressive strain of experimental modern metalcore that has gotten them noticed as one of metal’s most exciting and fresh young names.With music as unpredictable as it is expressive, the band found inspiration for their name from the world’s largest recorded mega-tsunami – measuring at 1,700 feet high – that demolished Alaska’s coastline in 1958. The band was attracted to the natural disaster’s national headline that read “Oceans Ate Alaska” where they decided to carry the name on a path to make their own history.By pushing sonic boundaries, Oceans Ate Alaska aim to take listeners on an emotional journey through unpredictable arrangements (both heavy and melodic), ruthless riffs, and unforgiving guttural vocals; setting an atmospheric landscape that showcases the band’s technical skill. The ferocious five-piece was listed by both Rock Sound Magazine and Revolver Magazine as a Band To Watch in 2015, noted as one of Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need To Know, with the band appearing on the cover of HM Magazine’s February Issue. The band has been touring in support of their debut albumLost Isles, which was described by HM Magazine as “The best album you’ll hear all year,” and is available now on iTunes.
