In a direct continuation from their lyric video for 'The Curse', comes 'Retribution' - a final electrifying installment from Floating Worlds ahead of their highly anticipated concept album release.
Celebrating their 21st anniversary as a band this year, their album Battleship Oceania will tell the epic tale of a legendary battleship and its crew, taking the Greek mythology from the band's home country and marrying it with modern day morality. A truly widescreen tempest of guitars, pummeling drums, synths and operatic vocals, their exhilarating sound matches the explosive story line that carries on throughout the album.
Beginning with the iron fortress, Oceania, sets sail under dubious government orders to intercept a ship full of armed terrorists masquerading as civilian passengers. At first, the crew suspects there are no terrorists, however in a turn of events the ship is torpedoed, killing all on-board and angering the Gods of the Sea who curse the battleship.
Having now obtained supernatural abilities, the hapless crew aboard are doomed to suffer an eternity aboard this floating prison. A chance at salvation is uncovered when it is revealed someone aboard knows rather more about the sinking of the passenger ship than they have said, leaving a battle of wits and Gods to resolve their fates.
Founded by guitarist Andreas
V. and bassist Vagelis Lekos, Floating Worlds have undergone several line-up changes over the years but have only increased their firepower in doing so. Having released two well-received full-length albums - 2007's "Only a Dream
Can Kill a Dream" and 2012's "Below the Sea of Light", their line-up now sees Andreas
and Vagelis joined by Jon Soti on vocals; Nikitas Mandolas (drums); Mike Papadopoulos (bass) and Sophia
Assarioti on the keyboards and vocals.
Having successfully toured countries such as Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia and most recently Russia, Floating Worlds are cementing their place as one of symphonic metal's most inspiring bands.
