OCEANO reveal ‘Incisions’ album artwork


Chicago’s OCEANO have revealed the artwork for their upcoming new album, INCISIONS, which is due to be released later this year on Earache Records in Europe, and via Century Media/Earache Records in the USA.

INCISIONS is the band’s third album, and was recorded at Electrowerks Studio in Downers Grove, Illinois.  The artwork for INCISIONS was created by KEN SARAFIN (THE BRIDAL PROCESSION, CATALEPSY).


OCEANO comment on the artwork:

“A while ago I came across a really awesome piece of artwork that was inspired by the band and also donned the band’s logo as well.  At the time, I wasn’t aware who had painted it; upon further research I found its origin and the artist who created it, Ken Sarafin.  Ken’s been a fan of the band for quite some while, and everything in his portfolio is a masterpiece.  Seeing as this band is already big on coupling immense visual imagery in our album art with our music, Ken was a natural fit.  He even went a little out of his norm and hand-painted the full cover art, then only digitally enhanced certain aspects.  We’re very satisfied with the final product of this true piece of art and are happy the fans are just as stoked on it.  The album itself will surely please the senses as much as Ken’s work has.”
