The abrasively cold island of Iceland is carved out by the extreme forces of nature, varying from pearl white snow covered mountain ranges to blackened volcanic deserts. Naturally, The Ocean Collective found this harsh and grueling expanse of land to be the perfect location for bringing their latest work to fruition, recording in a studio belonging to Sigur Ros and used by many Icelandic greats. Today, DRUM! Magazine goes behind the music and brings to light the intensive creative process of immersive songwriting.

The behind-the-scenes video exposes how drummer Paul Seidel approaches the kit through finding his inner peace, and focusing that newfound energy into producing hard hitting beats.  Sigur Ros’s converted studio encapsulates and captures every vibration, while the team behind The Ocean Collective welds them together to create the upcoming dive into the Palaeozoic era.

Ebbs and flows of proggy melodies, crushing guitars, swelling strings and powerful vocals match the heavy lyrical themes The Ocean has made its signature. Phanerozoic I is now available for preorder, along with meticulously designed merch bundles, something for which they’ve become known. Phanerozoic is out on November 2nd via Metal Blade Records (CD / digital) and Pelagic Records (vinyl), with merch bundles available for preorder now via MetalBlade.
