Oceans of Sadness was a progressive metal band from Belgium.

History[edit]

Oceans of Sadness caught the public eye in 1996 when one of their demos was chosen Demo of the Month in the Dutch metal magazine Aardschok[volume & issue needed].

They released their first album, For We Are, in 2000. One year later, they played for the first time at Graspop Metal Meeting, the most famous Belgian metal festival. They would return there in 2003 and 2007. Oceans of Sadness definitively broke through[according to whom?][further explanation needed] when their single So Close was given airtime[when?] by music television channels TMF and JIMtv.

Oceans of Sadness have been supporting acts for a.o. Dimmu Borgir, Within Temptation and Obituary.
