Metal at theaters

The Stockholm-based metal band Nocean has been playing on theater stages since the third album "Aurora: The Weight of a Shadow" came out in the fall of 2021 as a concept album in a gothic style. With an animated film integrated into the theater show, the band combines cinematic/symphonic and melodic metal with a powerful sound and energetic live shows. Nocean works hard, on their own, and books their own shows on mainly Swedish theater stages.

- We wanted to play where other hard rock bands don't normally play. Now the audience sits and listens carefully to every note, and we also reach young people to a greater extent, says singer Hanna Olsson.

 

Working independent

The band has existed since 2014 and has gone from classic hard rock genres to a developed sound in cinematic/symphonic metal with progressive elements. Nocean produces music, light shows and video material entirely on their own.
- We have great resources within the band, so we can focus on marketing ourselves and selling tickets. I want to say with pride that I don't think any other rock band in Sweden (that works without a label) manages to put on shows at the level that we do, says Hanna.

Nocean is currently working completely without a record company or booking company. Hundreds of visitors come to the shows (Aurora: The Weight of a Shadow) and this is what some of them have said on social media:

"Thank you so much for a wonderful show!! The coolest thing I've ever been to!" - Marcus, Norrköping
"... it's AWESOME!!! You've done an amazingly nice job!!" - Ann-Sofie, Karlstad
"It was great!  We'd love to come back!" - Kristina, Karlstad (Bought tickets for the same show again)
"Thank you for a wonderful performance!" - Jörgen, Norrköping

"You must come to Gävle again!🔥" - Nina, Gävle
"Thanks for a great evening!! You were Awesome!" - Sara, Jönköping
"Thanks for coming to Köping. An unforgettable experience. Outstanding concept." - Woman, Köping

Project support from Kulturrådet

In autumn 2022, the band's own company (Heartifact Studio) received financial support from Kulturrådet to carry out a project in sound art at three Aurora concerts. The acoustics from famous Swedish places such as Dramaten, Stockholm City Hall and Uppsala Cathedral are used live on the microphone channels. The first performance was in Söderhamn on October 8 and with the singer Liv Jagrell (ex. Sister Sin/Liv Sin) as a guest.

Looking for collaboration

Nocean is looking for collaborations with booking companies, bookers, municipal stages and other partners who may be interested in doing something together.
- We will continue to do the Aurora shows but are also looking for other concert collaborations, says Hanna Olsson.
