Hot News: The Ocean unveils new track from ‘Pelagial’!

Today THE OCEAN is pleased to unveil Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams from their forthcoming new studio offering, Pelagial. Possibly their deepest and most profoundly sophisticated work to date, Pelagial is a progressive musical journey written, recorded, mixed 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 Örebrö, Sweden, Pelagial will be released as a double CD, which includes a vocal and an instrumental version of the album and is scheduled for release on April 26th/29th (Europe) and April 30th (North America/world) through Metal Blade Records.

The concept of the album is made evident in its title, Pelagial. Listeners will be further submersed as they journey with the band, beginning at the surface of the ocean and plunging through all five pelagic depth zones: epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathyalpelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic. In synch with diminishing light and increasing pressure as one dives or sinks deeper into the ocean, the album begins rather light and progressively gets heavier and slows as the band reaches the unfathomable depths of the hadopelagic zone, characterized by complete darkness and a thousandfold increased pressure as compared to surface level. What is amazing about Pelagial is that this is not some detached conceptual idea; this can actually be heard and felt while listening to the album.

The album’s fourth movement, Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams is currently streaming at, metalblade.com/theocean, where you’ll also find studio footage and preorder info.

Additionally, preorders are currently available for a very special acrylic boxset edition ofPelagial, released through Pelagic Records. These heavy acrylic boxes are available in CD and vinyl formats and contain the CD digipak vs. four vinyl records respectively, as well as an extra DVD with the Pelagial movie by Craig Murray, all of which will be “buried” underneath five thick acrylic layers, colored in different hues of blue, each layer reflecting one of the five pelagial depth zones. The layers will be silk-screen printed with additional artwork by Martin Kvamme. 350 out of 500 copies of the limited vinyl boxsets and 450 out of 1000 CD boxsets have already been sold in the first five days of starting the preorder!
