Pavement Entertainment, Inc. has just released Departure from Wisconsin modern progressive metallers OCELLUS.
The sextet emerged from unsuspecting Lyons, Wisconsin in 2009. Combining elements of Hardcore, Metal, and Progressive Rock, they have pushed their way onto the Milwaukee scene with a mission to spread their message nationwide. Inspired by the likes of AS I LAY DYING, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, OCELLUS showcases their own aggressive brand of progressive-infused metal on the new album. The band made a splash on the live circuit and with their 2010 release Crush. Kill. Destroy. Playing countless shows and continuously touring, OCELLUS is committed to delivering a performance worth seeing over and over again. The group’s drive is relentless and the show keeps growing to new heights. OCELLUS had self-released their album and sold a staggering 2,500 copies. The band signed a three-album deal with Pavement Entertainment who released Departure on May 14th.
