I'm very passionate about writing and music.

Being As An Ocean, from Alpine, California, recently released their second full-length album, "How We Both Wondrously Perish", which was released on May 6. Their first album was "Dear G-d", which was released on January 3, 2012.

The band got their name from a quote of Mahatma Gandhi; "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

Being As An Ocean, although having only a small fan base (11k likes on their Facebook page), have a loyal one. Their songs are full of lyrics that hit home; lyrics that have meaning to the band. Some of their more notable songs are "Dear G-d", "The Hardest Part Is Forgetting Those You Swore You Would Never Forget", "Salute e Vita", "Nothing, Save the Power They're Given", and "L'exquisite Douler".

The newly released album has been relatively successful for this InVogue signed band, their album was number 71 in the Itunes new release charts. The album has everything you'd expect from the band, so long as you're interested in the genre they follow. The rhythmic guitar, the great bass and the vocals, all are an excellent sound to those whose ears are attuned to the genre.

Now, there's no feature artists on this album, but the sound quality is much better than their previous one ("Dear G-d"). Their previous album was recorded by themselves in San Diego, California, with help from their guitarist, Tyler Ross.

In the end it's all about what genre you prefer, but if you happen to enjoy post-hardcore, this album is for you!
