Ocean Chief are a sludge/stoner doom metal band from Mjölby, Sweden formed in 2001 by guitarist Björn Andersson and drummer-vocalist Tobias Larsson. They have released four full-lengths; Tor, Den förste, Sten and Universums härd. They’ve also released split with Runemagick titled The Northern Lights and a split with Kongh.

The music is a combination of heavy stoner doom passages, with sludge influences, and sometimes very upbeat and groovy parts. The band specializes in extremely long songs, the longest on their debut being 25 minutes in total.

Since Den förste, the band's lyrics are all in Swedish.
