"We're already in the stage of recording demos next week in Germany and a first full-album should see the light somewhere next year!" says Tijs.Tijs Vanneste filled in for EPICA's Mark Jansen at the Trailerpop festival on July 7 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This was a one-time-only arrangement. OCEANS OF SADNESS recently posted its cover version of ALICE IN CHAINS' "Them Bones" on its MySpace page. The track comes off the group's latest CD, "Mirror Palace", which was produced by Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, AMON AMARTH) at Fascination Street Studio in Örebro, Sweden and features 10 tracks. Also available on the group's MySpace page is a clip of the song "Intoxicate Me", plus a full-length version of the track "Mould". OCEANS OF SADNESS' third full-length album, "Send In the Clowns", was released in 2005.
