German funeral doom metal band Ahab — which features former Midnattsol members Daniel Droste and Christian Hector — have plans to enter the studio at the end of January to begin recording their new album.
“These days we’re in the final phase of the songwriting process and are eager to finish the compositions,” the band says in a statement.
The new album will be the band’s third, and follows 2009‘s The Divinity Of Oceans, which was released through Napalm Records.
Of course, the band is named after Captain Ahab, a character in the novel “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville.
I betcha these dudes like Mastodon.
The band’s name isn’t the only aspect of the group that honors the classic piece of literature. Along with its name, Ahab also draws thematic and lyrical inspiration from “Moby Dick” — some songs even feature direct quotations from the book.
