The first album, "Life In The Desert," is a half-hour long single track, stretching across noise, ambient, drone, and doom metal, invoking the mind-numbing depression of burning to death in a hell on Earth.
The second album, "Death And Numbness," was released in late 2008 and is an examination of the concept of death and the inevitable end to all things physical and spiritual.
After a long hiatus, the third album, "Ascending," focused on abandoning the struggle for progression in life, as well as failure.
The fourth album had a 20-minute long new track that strayed stylistically from previous efforts, and two remixes of a previously unreleased song. While still slow, brooding, and dark, "Your Tears Are Made Of Blood" introduced a less "fuzzy" and more "raw" side of Ocean Of Ghosts.
Ocean of Ghosts is currently working on two more releases.
