Invisible Oranges offers up a special video sampler featuring 30-second clips of each track taken off THE OCEAN’s new album Pelagial with accompanying artwork.
Immeasurably heavy both sonically and thematically,Pelagial was written, recorded, mixed and to-be-performed-live as one single, 53-minute piece of music. Easily their most profoundly sophisticated work to date,Pelagial is an aquatic-themed audio adventure that quite literally submerses listeners as they journey with the band, beginning at the surface of the ocean and plunging through all five pelagic depth zones.

Said Spin Magazine: „The sixth album from German post-metal doombringers THE OCEAN is huge… In the course of the record, tender piano interludes get stomped on by Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings work next to bulldozing double-kick work, and, at the end, the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos.”
Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) at Fascination Street Studios in Örebrö, Sweden, Pelagial will be released as a double CD, which includes a vocal and an instrumental version of the album and is out now everywhere in Europe!
Pelagial got album of the month awards in both Visions (Germany) and Aardschok (Holland) and top ratings in all major magazines in Europe!
THE OCEAN are currently touring Europe. Most of the tour will be in support of CULT OF LUNA, some are headline shows and festival appearances and there’s also a few shows in support of MASTODON!
