Despite it being one of the best touring lineups I’ve seen that year, I couldn’t make it out to Summer Slaughter 2013. Massive disappointment on my part, but I had just started a new job so taking time off was not an option. The band I was most looking forward to seeing was The Ocean, who had just released my album of the year, Pelagial.

Fortunately, they’re coming back shortly, but in the mean time, I can make up for the lost experience through multi-cam live footage of what I assume is most of their setlist in ‘Bathyalpelagic‘ and ‘Demersal,’ the latter of which features Thy Art Is Murder vocalist Chris McMahon!
