"The Divinity of Oceans" is a concept album based on the true story of the Whale-Ship Essex which in November 1820 was sunk in an attack by a sperm whale before the men resorted to cannibalism in order to survive, as told by survivor Owen Chase in his 1821 book "Narrative of the Most Extraordinary and Distressing Shipwreck of the Whale-Ship Essex". This book formed the inspiration for Herman Meville's famous novel "Moby Dick" where the name Ahab is from.
