The Ocean Reveals New Album "Anthropocentric" Details

The Ocean is currently in the process of mixing the band's upcoming album "Anthropocentric" at Studio Mecanique in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the same place where the previous album "Heliocentric" was recorded and mixed. The album will be mastered on August 25th by Svante Forsbäck in Helsinki. "Anthropocentric" will be released in November of 2010. The album is the second part of a concept spread over two albums, which started in "Heliocentric." "The sound is more dense and maybe a tad more raw, which suits the songs perfectly," comments guitar player Jonathan Nido.

"The album is a pretty big production, and still has a very earthy, organic feel to it," comments guitarist Robin Staps. "We have spent a great deal of time on the basic sound this time around, drums, bass, guitars and vocals… and at this stage I am pretty confident that this will pay off in the end! Anthropocentric will continue the critique of Christianity, inspired by the questions that Dostoyevsky asked and some of the answers that Friedrich Nietzsche and Richard Dawkins gave."

The track listing for "Anthropocentric" is as follows:

1. Anthropocentric
2. The Grand Inquisitor I: Karamazov baseness
3. She Was The Universe
4. For He That Wavereth…
5. The Grand Inquisitor II: Roots & Locusts
6. The Grand Inquisitor III: A Tiny Grain of Faith
7. Sewers Of The Soul
8. Wille Zum Untergang
9. Heaven TV
10. The Almightiness Contradiction
11. The Grand Inquisitor IV: Exclusion From Redemption

The last track is a bonus track which will only appear on the vinyl and the limited European deluxe digipak version.
