Additional notes
The Ocean was founded by Robin Staps in 2000.

The albums "FluXion" and "Aeolian" were originally intended to be released together as a double album (but their last label didn't want to do so). FluXion now covers the more epic and orchestral songs, while Aeolian collects the harder, more metallic ones.

The Ocean is also known as The Ocean Collective. The main reason for this is that the band shares different (also additional) musicians at gigs and studio recordings. Additionally, the band has their own recording and producing studio, which allowed them to record their last two albums in a time period of almost 18 months with ongoing progress. The idea of the collective has been mostly abandoned lately. The band has now a core line-up, all other participants are viewed as session musicians.
