The Ocean Collective Continues To Share Behind The Scenes Secrets with Gear Gods
After returning from the harsh cold of Iceland, The Ocean Collective returned to the comforts of their hometown Berlin to continue their recording process for the upcomingPhanerozoic I: Palaeozoic. We get another peek behind-the-scenes video which premiered exclusively with Gear Gods. The video delves into the dichotomized mind of guitarist Robin Staps showcasing the band's inner workings and the importance of the string and brass sections that make this new album powerful and unlike previous material. Cellist Dalai Cellai makes an appearance on the new record and shares her thoughts on the importance of string instruments, and how they help balance the dynamics when set against vigorous guitars and bold vocals.
Ebbs and flows of proggy melodies, crushing guitars, swelling strings and powerful vocals match the heavy lyrical themes The Ocean has made its signature. Phanerozoic I is now available for preorder, along with meticulously designed merch bundles, something for which they've become known. Phanerozoic is out on November 2nd via Metal Blade Records (CD / digital) and Pelagic Records (vinyl), with merch bundles available for preorder now via MetalBlade.
