Words by Andy Parkinson
Don’t think it’s possible to deliver a crushing progressive metal concept album using only two acoustic guitars?
That’s most likely because you’re yet to discover Opal Ocean‘s latest album, The Hadal Zone.
The dreaded sophomore album is sometimes what can make or break a band. With a lifetime of work and inspiration poured into a debut LP, some artists can sometimes struggle to back it up with an album that’s worthy of following its predecessor.
