TheOcean-Pelagial

Short Review

Conceptually about the multiple layers of the ocean, this album builds up the pressure and weight on you from the get go. ‘Epipelagic’ leading into ‘Mesopelagic’ is a clear understanding that this album will transition into darker territory despite the sprinkling beginnings. Leaving you feeling pulverised by the ‘Benthic’ layer. The ocean is a dark place and this band convey that beautifully. Originally instrumental, the vocals add an extra added depth to this masterpiece. A dark and brutal exploration into territory few dare. A fantastic combination of sludge and progressive music, and most importantly a beautiful piece of German art.

Verdict 5/5 Stars
