THE RELEASE OF THE OCEAN’S HELIOCENTRIC IS LESS THAN ONE MONTH AWAY!
I hearby dub MS Maniac Mark Moritz-Rabson “Official MetalSucks Correspondent, The Ocean Division.” I can sleep easy at night knowing that any time Robin Staps so much as moves his bowels I’ll have an email waiting in my inbox from Mark, so it’s about time we rewarded the fellow with an official title. Your business cards are in the mail, good sir!
Fortunately, Robin Staps has done a whole lot more than move his bowels lately. As you all well know — or SHOULD know — The Ocean have TWO new full-length records scheduled to come out this year. The first, Heliocentric, is set to drop April 9th (Germany), 12th (Europe) and 13th (North America). Mr. Moritz-Rabson has three tidbits of Ocean-related news for you all today:
- A pre-production video for Heliocentric is out! (posted above)
- Pre-orders via Metal Blade for Heliocentric are up!
- Mark Moritz-Rabson posted his own guitar cover of “Dead on the Whole” (from Fluxion) on YouTube. Check it out.
If you haven’t already you should go listen to instrumental samples from the new album at The Ocean’s official website. Between those and the clips of new music in the pre-production video above, I’m convinced Heliocentric is going to be all sorts of epic. A certain metal blog is going to be debuting at least one full track from the album before its release; stay tuned for that!
