Aeolian is the second album by the German metal band The Ocean released in November 28, 2005. It is the second part of a two-CD project that started with Fluxion. Torge Ließmann – drums. Gerd Kornmann – percussion. Robin Staps – guitar, percussion. Jonathan Heine – bass guitar. Nico Webers – vocals. Carsten Albrecht – guest vocals. Tomas Hallbom – guest vocals. Sean Ingram – guest vocals. Ercüment Kasalar – guest vocals. Nate Newton – guest vocals.

Fluxion, originally released in 2004, was meant to be one half of a two-CD set, but the label, Make My Day, wasn't willing to go for it, so it and its more straightforwardly metallic counterpart, Aeolian, were issued separately, the latter on Metal Blade. Now that label has reissued Fluxion with re-recorded vocals. The songs are sprawling and progressive, occasionally approaching a kind of fusion of metal with modern classical that's unprecedented in extreme music.

Not all of the songs have quiet moments but in comparison to Aeolian, which was a draining experience because of the continuous fury, Fluxion provides many chances for the listener to catch their breath before being pulled underneath the surface again. The music is unpredictable, sometimes it takes you right where you think you’ll go and other times places you never thought it would.
