Oceans Ate Alaska wrote the best metalcore album of all time: Lost Isles. A lot of it is due to drummer Chris Turner’s jazz-like approach to writing music. OAA subsequently wrote Hikari, but they did that in 2017. That means they’re due for new music.
Last week, the cymbal company Sabian release a video of Turner tracking drums for that new album. Turner is my favorite drummer in metal alongside Tool’s Danny Carey. Watching him work is pure inspiration.
