Celebrating the beauty that is the relationship between storytelling and music, Floating Worlds have released the video to their latest track ‘The Curse’, the second single to precede their forthcoming concept album ‘Battleship Oceania’.
Now in their 21st year as a band, Floating Worlds combine Greek myth with modern day morality to tell the epic tale of the battleship and its crew – a tale whose scale is matched with the music, a a truly widescreen tempest of guitars, pummelling drums, synths and gymnastically operatic vocals.
Following their first single taken from the album ‘Sailing in History’, ‘The Curse’ sees the crew now learning of their fate – an ending that will become clear with the release of the album in May.
Founded by guitarist Andreas V. and bassist Vagelis Lekos, Floating Worlds has 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.
