‘Leviathan & the Deep, Dark Blue‘ by Deep Dark River is a twelve track, folk rock epic which detail the “story of an oceanic guardian who has taken the form of a colossal grey whale. As the modern era of humankind takes its mastery of the seas, its powers ebb and its waters begin to sour and darken.” This story plays out throughout the first seven songs while the last five songs are acoustic versions. I have to say this was done well, as the acoustic versions add a bit more dimension to the album!
Here’s what Morgan Rider had to say about ‘Leviathan & the Deep, Dark Blue‘:
I and the guys are really excited to bring you part 2 of the Deep Dark River Quadrilogy! I have been working so hard on all this music, having the stories connect and the music itself reflecting the plot of each. This is definitely the most time I have ever spent on a music project before. I hope people enjoy it as much I did create it
