Ocean Dynamics

Released in 2006, “Ocean Dynamics” is the second Dol Ammad album. Its aquatic theme and concept emit very deep and rather atmospheric feelings and I am very happy with the ambiences I’ve created in it. Compared to “Star Tales” it’s big steps ahead mainly in the production side of things. The choir recordings were upgraded with the biggest choir I had recorded so far (14 members), I invited drummer Alex Holzwarth to my studio in Thessaloniki and also had the honor to work with the talented DC Cooper who flew from Pittsburgh to my home town for his guest vocals in “Aquatic Majesty”.

It was a very busy 2005, I remember we were working one and a half year full time for this album. In June 2006 I was obliged to join the Greek army and was very sad that the CD was released while I was serving my time there and didn’t enjoy it as much as I would like to. It was also the first CD released from my personal label electronicARTmetal Records and had tons of new things to sort both in my mind and business-wise.

Thankfully I am very proud with the result and excited because it was at that time that I fully realized my need to create more music projects and explore other aspects of sound and composition which would begin with Dol Theeta the next years.

Seldom so many different genres have been united into a common style. Soundtrack elements in “Heart of the Sea”, through the finest lounge of “Descent” to a brief interlude of black metal in “Thalassa Dominion 4”.
