Nauticus

Two and a half years after the first full length effort "A Wave to Carry Us Out", Nauticus has finally released their self-financed second album. Just like it's predecessor, the new album titled "The Wait" paints an experimental musical image with all genre boundaries broken.

Two and a half years after the first full length effort "A Wave to Carry Us Out", Nauticus has finally released their self-financed second album. Just like it's predecessor, the new album titled "The Wait" paints an experimental musical image with all genre boundaries broken.

Driven by the vision of drummer Tuomas Rajala, Nauticus has thus far released a virtual demo and in 2009 with the current line-up already involved a full lenght debut album. After the bands first efforts on stage and a good response to the debut from the finnish media, the second album started to take form with five equal members of the band all involved in the composing process of the upcoming release. With all the musicians in the band bearing long and complex musical backgrounds from years past, the albums musical extremeties seemed even further apart, but a strong unified vision of the Nauticus sounds was now present.

"The Wait" is a seven song concept album with eight tracks on it, that was furiously written, composed, practiced and recorded within a period of two and a half years. An apocalyptic lyrical theme flows through an hour of experimental, psychedelic and visionary landscape of rock, metal and alternative. From the beginning the objective has been to make music that will stand the test of time and an album that takes the listener to a complete journey through out the whole release, not something you listen song by song on shuffle with your MP3-player. The band feels there is no need for over the top individual musical showmanship, as the aim is to bring forth a strong vision as a single unit.

The biggest leap from the debut has been made through the technological aspects as a true talent was brought in to record, mix and even at some parts produce the album. Antti Loponen is the visionare behind alternative metal band Consciousness Removal Project, in which he composes, arranges, plays, records, mixes and masters all of the material himself. After playing a few gigs together and obviously sharing a musical vision with Loponen, Nauticus retreated to record the sophomore album with Antti leading the way in the summer of 2011. The mastering process was again handled by Sami Sarhamaa at Perfect Sound Studios and all of the art was accuired from the band's trusted cover artist Matador Gigante.
