Ahab Streaming Cover Of Alan Parsons Project Classic: Ahab News
It appears on the Deluxe Wooden Box edition of fourth album The Boats Of The Glen Carrig, which is on sale now. The follow-up to 2012's The Giant sees Ahab continuing their tradition of taking inspiration from seabound horror stories. Guitarist Christian Hector recently told Metal Hammer: "Everybody wants us to do HP Lovecraft - but how often is that done?"
Instead they read William Hope Hodgson's The Boats Of The Glen Carrig. "We were like, 'That's it, that's the one,'" said Hector. "Then we started to write music. After that was recorded came lyrics, but we always knew where we were in the story." Stream the song - here.
