OCEANS - receive Deutscher Rock & Pop Preis in three categories!

German-Austrian post metal band OCEANS has another reason to pop a bottle of champagne right after New Year's Eve: The aspiring legends to be got awarded with the Deutscher Rock & Pop Preis in three categories! The band achieved honorable results as best metal band (#2), best metal album (#2) and best nu metal band (#3).

Singer Timo Rotten states: „We are incredibly proud to be awarded this price, despite our short history as a band. This just confirms our philosophy that doing the right thing should be preferred over doing ’what people want’. Oceans has always been from the heart and we sure as hell will continue to walk that path. Thank you to all those who have walked with us thus far - I’m excited for the things to come.“

The Deutsche Rock & Pop Preise have been awarded annually by the musicians-, componists-, lyricists- organisation Deutscher Rock & Pop Musikerverband e.V. since 1983. Since 2002, the Deutsche PopStiftung has been involved as well. With this, it is the oldest non-profit music contest in Germany. Negative and irrelevant quality criterias like "volume on sale", "chart success" or sold audience tickets with voting right do not influence the results. Many successful German acts (JULI, PUR, LUXUSLÄRM) belong to the award winners.

Earlier this year, the band started a get-involved campaign for their fans to be part of the song and the upcoming video. Everyone could send an audio- and videofile for 'Against All Odds' to join the project. Watch the video here:
