German post-metallers The Ocean are currently streaming a new song over on their myspace called “Swallowed By The Earth.” This track is off of their highly anticipated album Heliocentric, due out April 13th on Metal Blade.

This track is a more straightforward song, with a recognizable song structure and clean singing. That’s not to say the song is bad, which it isn’t, but if you’re into the ten minute sludgy post metal with orchestral instruments thrown in that you’ve come to expect of The Ocean, then this isn’t really what you’re looking for. But if you’re a fan of The Ocean regardless, you SHOULD like it.

Next week the album drops. Be sure to check this bad boy out.
