More new metal from The Ocean--and it involves Russian Lit

I apologize for blogging about the same band twice in less than a week, but German metallers The Ocean are just really intent on getting new tracks from their upcoming opus Anthropocentric out to the world wide web before the November 9th release. Check out "The Grand Inquisitor II: Roots & Locusts" over at Stereogum. The song never lets up for its over-six-minute duration, featuring some swift, angular riffage and a truly passionate, peelin'-the-paint-off-the walls vocal performance.

And to all you fans of Russian literature: it's time to break out your Dostoevsky, 'cause in case you didn't notice, "The Grand Inquisitor II: Roots & Locusts" is one of three (!!!) tracks about The Brothers Karamazov on the album. It's concepts like these that remind me why I love metal.
