There are exactly two things I like about Chicago "deathcore" band Oceano:
1) The way the vocals alternate between death-metal Cookie Monster and shrieky screamo banshee, which reminds me of the golden era of multivocalist punk and hardcore bands like Grade, Nema, and Blatz.
2) The way the set of promo photos that MySpace recently pulled from their page makes it a lot easier to explain to outsiders about the barely sublimated misogyny that's so prevalent in postmillennial emo and emo-derived music. That is, if you can even call photos of a bunch of dudes pretending to murder and butcher a couple of hot Suicide Girl-looking chicks "barely sublimated."
