Check out a live clip of “Firmament” filmed during THE OCEAN’s Heliocentric record release show on March 26th, 2010.

THE OCEAN will be touring in support of their 2010 separately-issued double album: Heliocentric and Anthropocentric (released in April and November 2010 respectively). This mammoth conceptual effort took almost two years to complete. From a lyrical and artistic point of view, the albums represent a fundamental and philosophical critique of Christianity. Both albums scored rave reviews worldwide, including Album Of The Month in Metal Hammer Germany, Italy and Greece, and a cover feature in the December issue of Metal Hammer UK’s/Subterranea (their extreme metal supplement). Said AMG Magazine: “This is the most forward-thinking statement by THE OCEAN yet, and stands as the most seamlessly integrated and consistent recording they’ve issued to date.” Added Rock Sound (UK): “Luxurious, tectonic, ingenious, calculated, charismatic, enterprising, dexterous, inventive, unrestrained, fascinating and poignant. If all this doesn’t convince you to at least check them out, then seriously, fuck off.”
