Reissue 2019 on solid black vinyL! While their brand new album ,Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic" is making tsunami-style waves across the globe, we are reissuing THE OCEAN's 2010 albums ,Heliocentric" and ,Anthropocentric" on vinyl! The ,centrics"-albums saw the introduction of current vocalist Loïc Rossetti to the band's lineup, a game changer in their 17 years history.

,Anthropocentric" is heavier than its same-year predecessor ,Heliocentric", with the crushing 15-minutes openening track duality ,The Grand Inquisitor" part I and II and following track ,She Was The Universe", one of the most-streamed THE OCEAN tracks to date, setting the bar high for the rest of the album.

Conceptually, ,Heliocentric" and ,Anthropocentric" are a comprehensive critique of the legacy of christianity: While ,Heliocentric" approaches the topic in a historical-chronological way, the main focus of ,Anthropocentric" is the ,Grand Inquisitor"-chapter in Dostoyevsky's world-famous novel ,The Brothers Karamazov", spread out over 3 tracks of the album.

Other songs like the serene ,The Almightiness Contradiction" take up ideas by Richard Dawkins, the spearhead of modern day's aetheism.
