As Part of Pelagic Records Label Compilation In The Twilight, These Rocks Have Teeth – A Compilation Of Contemporary Post Rock & Metal, To Be Released September 29
To get 12.000 acrylic layers or 11 tons of raw material manufactured, silk-screen printed and assembled into vinyl box sets with an individual weight of 6 KG seems like a pitiful mistake – but THE OCEAN’s spectacular ‘Pelagial’
This compilation showcases the entire Pelagic Records roster, from well-established acts such as MONO, CULT OF LUNA or PG.LOST to newcomers such as HYENAS or New Zealand’s SPOOK THE HORSES, who contribute an exclusive track to this release – a track which will make your mouth water for their upcoming full-length album ‘People Used To Live Here’, due for a late 2017 release. CULT OF LUNA’s ‘Nord’ has been previously only released on the ‘Eternal Music’ vinyl LP and the ‘Eviga Riket’ audio book.
Another exclusive track comes from Staps’ own band THE OCEAN. ‘Turritopsis Dohrnii’ is the band’s first output since their 2015 ‘Transcendental’ – split EP with Japan’s post rock legends MONO, a release which inaugurated the PELAGIC SPLIT SERIES – later to be followed by editions featuring exclusive contributions by CULT OF LUNA & THE OLD WIND, TINY FINGERS & EF and LLNN & WOVOKA.
While the compilation’s first disc, ‘In The Twilight…’, focuses on the more calm, post-rock oriented side of the label, the second disc, ‘… These Rocks Have Teeth’ dives deep down into the realm of dark and epic heavy music that the label has become known and loved for, throughout their catalogue of now 85 releases. This compilation is a carefully designed and very listenable playlist, a perfect ride through the vast Pelagic Records universe!
