Doom heavyweights OCEAN CHIEF Reveal Album Details + First Single
Hailing from the contemplative province of Mjölby, Sweden, their music in contrast speaks volumes. April 17th will see doom heavy weights OCEAN CHIEF release their sixth studio album, titled Den Tredje Dagen, via Argonauta Records! After 5 years since their last record, this is a heavy ride through the band’s sound roots between the psychedelic and doom, with a crisp approach and a new hunger! The four-piece, formed in 2001 by Björn Andersson and Tobias Larsson, evolved their sound to perfection in long tracks combined with electronic ideas. Following OCEAN CHIEF‘s latest album, Universums härd, today the Swedes are not only sharing the album details about their upcoming magnum opus, but also a first single to the heavy as hell album title. Listen here:
“We are very happy to present this album after nearly 20 years as a band.“ OCEAN CHIEF comment. “The intension to stay with our roots, with the heavy riff bonanza, and also to present an even harsher and darker side of the band, has been accomplished to our satisfaction.
There are haunting passages on the album that almost make us afraid of ourselves…
The album was recorded during a weekend in the spring of 2019, and we have stayed with the formula of not overworking the final product. This is uncompromising doom, not for the faint of heart! And this is meant to be played LOUD.“
