Metal Injection is currently hosting a video for “The Grand Inquisitor II: Roots & Locusts,” from German progressive metal/post hardcore enigmas, THE OCEAN. The song comes off the band’s Anthropocentric full-length, released via Metal Blade last November. Anthropocentric is the sequel to Heliocentric (released in April of 2010). Together the records serve as a separately-issued double album, a mammoth conceptual effort that took almost two years to complete. From a lyrical and artistic point of view, the albums represent a fundamental and philosophical critique of Christianity.

The band is currently making their way through North America on The Hypersleep Dialogues Trek, with headliners Between The Buried And Me, Job For A Cowboy and Cephalic Carnage on select dates. Presented by Peter Says Denim, in association with Guitar World & MetalSucks.net, The Hypersleep Dialogues Trek commenced on April 15th and has been ravaging ears from city-to-city every since.
