THE OCEAN Take You Behind The Scenes Of Their NEW Album 'Pelagial'
THE OCEAN will release a NEW album entitled 'Pelagial' on April 26 (GSA), April 29 (Europe) and April 30 (USA) 2013 on Metal Blade Records, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'Heliocentric' and 'Anthropocentric' albums (2010). To support the release, THE OCEAN will embark on a 3 weeks European tour with CULT OF LUNA in April and May (dates further below), including a performance at Roadburn Festival on April 20th.
Today (March 21), THE OCEAN is taking you behind the scenes of their NEW sonic assault via a series of videos. Possibly their deepest and most profoundly sophisticated composition to date, 'Pelagial' is a progressive musical journey written, recorded and to-be-performed-live as one, single, 53-minute piece of music. Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) at Fascination Street Studios in Orebro, Sweden, the offering will be released as a double CD, which includes both vocal and instrumental versions of the album, on April 26th/29th (Europe) and April 30th (North America/world) through Metal Blade Records.
