Elephant of the Ocean (EOTO) has been punishing crowds around Wellington, NZ since early 2009, with their high-energy live shows, unpredictable song structures and intense onslaught of sludgey grooves. Although EOTO are fairly new they are no strangers to the stage with all members previously involved in other bands such as Damn Image, Fat Mannequin and Worn Villain.
After starting off playing small shows they swiftly progressed onto bigger stages playing along side international heavyweights such as Russian Circles, The Melvins, High on Fire, Architects and Five Star Prison Cell they have now been dubbed as one of NZ’s best live heavy acts, an absolute must-see for all!
After many unsatisfactory attempts to self-record they decided to approach experienced sound engineer Mike Gibson (Akaname, TrinityRoots, Fur Patrol) to capture the relentless assault of their live sound. The song ‘Torso looking for legs’ was released as a single in January 2012 as a lead up to the highly anticipated debut E.P.
