Unless it's as good as Precambrian was, I'll probably pass it over.

The album really interests me and I'm seriously thinking of getting the vinyl box, I just hope it's better than the last two albums though. The samples for each song sound pretty good though

the centric series was never something i was fond of so i was uninterested from the start this looks
much more promising i'd say

the samples all rule but the first one

@fromtheinside:

I suggest that you at least listen to this once even if you didn't like their last two albums as (and I'm directly quoting the band) "What is remarkable about Pelagial is that this is not some detached conceptual idea; this can actually be heard and felt while listening to the album." So definitely not as Helio and Anthro

@iamthenightmare - "Originally conceptualized as an instrumental album, Pelagial now comes in 2 different versions that will be released together: with vocals and instrumental." Your wish is granted.

This sounds pretty cool, really enjoyed Fluxion and Precambrian. Would laugh my ass of though if this turned out to be a complete failure of an album, especially with all the ambitious packaging and extra movies and stuff.

Gotta say, the site did a really good job with the layout of submerging in the water through each track

The teasers definitely sound a whole lot better, but I have a feeling I may enjoy the instrumental version more, unless the old vox are back which I highly doubt...

Judging by the teasers this is going to be on par or better than Helio and Anthro.

i can pretty much guarantee that. i'd rather listen to 5 of these 20 second samples than either of those shitfests.

I don't think the last two albums were all that bad (Antho was better) but the teasers do indeed sound so much better

Helio is great. Never understood why everyone says lyrics and concept suck. At least they have the excuse of not having English as their mothertongue.. Anthropo has its good moments, something sounds weird though.. Concept is cool, website is cool, snippets are cool and the boxset is fucking awesome. I wish I could buy that baby

this has Precambrian potential, but if it's on par with Fluxion I'll be more than happy. if only it wasn't $140 for the vinyl box...

If anyone wants to get the box set I suggest buying it now because they're raising the price every few hours...

I love how everyone states their opinion as fact, and that they feel the need to post it everywhere possible. Sit down negs, a lot of people liked anthro and helio.

This should be awesome, preordered the Limited CD/DVD Box . Guess I am one of the few who think their last 2 CDs were by far their best ones.

samples sound good. but remember the heliocentric samples? they pretty much picked the only parts of each of those songs worth listening to and left out the atrocious vocals.

I wasn't a huge fan of this band until Loic came into the picture. I guess I'm one of the few who enjoys his style.

Loic is great, it just took him and Staps some time to mesh.

The band is pretty good with or without vocals, screams, cleans. I like all of their albums and this one looks to be pretty on par with the rest.

concept seemed really good based on the descriptions... until i listened to the previews, which seemed to get progressively worse. am i doing it wrong?

I'm really liking the samples and the concept is great but come on guys if they expect us to pre-order at this time when they haven't even released a song and given us detailed pictures of what we're buying (only mock ups).

Despite this I have hope for this album

Forget those haters on their last two albums. They obviously just listened to some collective snobs whine about how it wasn't Precambrian and maybe glanced over a few of the the songs and feigned interest. If you don't care for them, that's fine, I mean, it is all just an opinion anyway, but Helio and Anthro in no way suck. They were growers, but they didnt suck in the slightest.

This should rule.

They're not bad at all, especially antho but for me helio felt like a loosely detached idea. That's just my opinion though. This seems like it's going to be a lot better, at least I'm hoping it will be

The only difference between Helio and Anthro is the songs Ptomey and epiphany. I can see where fans have a problem with Ptomey. But epiphany is a good change of pace song towards the end of the album. The rest of the songs on both albums are pretty much interchangeable. Go back and listen to Firnament.

The teaser for Bathyalpelagic sounds so good, I really hope it's a good representation for the song
