THE OCEAN & MONO – “Transcendental” EP

We have recently been in the studio, and now we can finally tell you what this was all about: We’re excited to announce the release of “Transcendental”, a split EP with Mono (Japan), right in time for our European tour together! The worldwide release date is set to October 23, through PELAGIC RECORDS.

The EP is featuring 1 new track by each band. Mono contribute an 11-minutes track entitled “Death In Reverse”. Our new track, 13 minutes in length, is entitled “The Quiet Observer”. It was inspired by Gaspard Noe’s controversial movie “Enter The Void”, the story of a drug dealer getting shot while tripping on DMT, and entering what is referred to as the „intermediate state“ according to the Bardo Thodol, the Tibetan Book Of The Dead. The book describes a state immediately after a person’s death, when the intellect of the dead person must face its own illusions, in the form of peaceful and wrathful deities, in a protracted psychedelic experience. Only if it manages to expose these horrifying guises as products of its own imagination, can it escape the eternal cycle of rebirth. Noe leaves it open as to whether protagonist Oscar’s death and the following metaphysical experience are actually happening – or whether the guy is simply tripping…

We’re gonna play this beast live on the upcoming tour.
Be prepared.
