"Oceans - I was anxious to hear it because in my humble opinion The Absence are one of the finest melodic death metal bands the U.S. has yet produced. To this day, their 2007 album Riders of the Plague remains high on my personal list of “most-played” releases ever. The song (Oceans) includes some wonderful dual-guitar harmonies and a sequence of guitar solos (both electric and acoustic) that are worth the price of admission all by themselves. I certainly hope “Oceans” is just a teaser of more music that will come from this band — and come quickly."

"Oceans - Proving that South Florida is still home to thrash metal at its most aggressive, the Absence are a Tampa-based band whose furious guitar work, monstrous vocals, and pummeling rhythms have won them the approval of discerning fans of extreme hard rock.. The recent release “Oceans”,  is The Absence’s first song with Peter’s replacement, Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry)…I hope the upcoming album continues to produce the melodic, solid metal we get from Oceans."

"Oceans - if you want to instantly fall in love… …find the first new song from The Absence in some three fucking years… …It’s called “Oceans,” and comes highly recommended. ...It’s nasty, melodic, and utterly brilliant. It’s called “Oceans,” and comes highly recommended. …I’m digging the shit out of this song, because it really goes everywhere, and connects with me. Just listen. I can’t explain it. But I’m glad it’s here. Finally."  Chris Harris -,
