Ocean Grove are an Australian nu metal band formed in 2010. Their initial line-up was Jimmy Hall on guitar, Luke Holmes on lead vocals, Mathias Morales on drums and vocals, Dale Tanner on vocals and bass guitar, and Running Touch on guitar. In 2013 Morales was replaced on drums by Sam Bassal and in the following year Matthew Henley joined on guitar as Touch became a studio-only member.
OCEAN GROVE are certainly making a statement with their releases – determinedly branding themselves as an entirely new genre – ‘Odd World’. Declaring oneself as a revolutionary, a presence unlike any seen befor. t’s a risky endeavour, one sure to attract criticism and come off as highbrow. Thing is, though – I’m not so sure they failed. For THE RHAPSODY TAPES, amongst its fervour and eclecticism, does often feel fresh in a way that metalcore hasn’t felt in a while. THE RHAPSODY TAPES is a hard-hitting, eclectic albu. ut it’s also a fun time. And for that, I’m willing to give GROVE a lot of leeway. It’s clear that their genre-invention dreams aren’t causing them to fall into a trap of elitism, rather, the sense is a group earnestly trying to pour their all into a record.
