outdatedtv Hooked at once, just the mood I needed. Very good quality on progrock.com. Ordered vinyls and FLAC instantly.
EDIT: Listened the entire album from my DAC and FLAC files, it is a journey, it is amazing. The free listen files available on bandcamp do NOT do justice to the tremendous production. I am a fan of Eloy, Porcupine Tree and King Crimson on a daily basis and if the work of the aforementioned clicks well with you, this work is to be highly recommended. Favorite track: The Confluence.

ragone13 really enjoying the new album !! the production is phenomenal ! Pete's bass playing is very different here than on Marillion and Transatlantic and I love the tone! Eric is in fine form on all fronts! Having Ric flesh out the guitar and bass was a masterstroke. Both Henry and Lisa have chops to spare!! very strong addition to the EC catalog. anyone who likes progressive rock in general especially those who are into Pink Floyd!

about

The Disturbance Fields are the physical manifestations that mother nature's fury can take against the human race due to our mistreatment of the oceans, rainforests and overdevelopment of urban landmasses. This has resulted in dramatic climatic changes in the temperatures of the earth and the sea and is the cause of far stronger and more violent storms and destructive natural events.

The Disturbance Fields features just one song... a 68 minute epic piece of music called “Washed Away” that takes you on a journey of a man fighting all of the forces of Mother Nature' wrath

It is also personally based on the fact that during these recording sessions of all of Edison's Children's current and upcoming albums that we were hit by a hurricane, a 6.0 earthquake, a tornado and a massive blizzard which caused a state of emergency. Having experienced first hand much of what Mother Nature's ferocity can deliver ... it was natural for the band to write a concept that maybe... we've crossed that line and perhaps Mother Nature has come to purge the world of what has become its biggest liability... human nature

Track Name: Captain's Ledger
i've spent 30 years on this stormy road
so much time away from my home
tell me everything will be alright
but i can't see you anymore
maybe i've gone blind...

i've lived a long and lonely time
seen far too much for any man alive
i've been led astray
everything that i've ever known has washed away...
Track Name: A Random Occurrence
the london 619 goes careening off the track
sirens light the sky then it all fades to black
a premonition ...
why did you ignore the signs, there won't be a second time

your oxygen grew thin as your lips fade to pale
pulled out from the wreckage as the train had derailed
an intuition ... you had reached of the road.
how could you not have known?
Track Name: Asphyxiation
submerged down below underneath this undertow
always supposed to be where you live now thrive dwell
dragging me down into yet un-chartered waters
lost in this tidal zone the airway dissipates
feed on what is left
feeding on the depths of my soul
fighting for one last breath
drifting out to the edge of my world
out of sight out of mind
washed away with the tide til there's nothing left to remain...
of what i was

grains of sand from the edges of the sea
brought back from her deep
ocean filling heart lungs throat heavy and dense breathing viscosity last trace of oxygen last pulse of energy
breath that one last breath
pressure continues to grow
colors they dissolve and fade down to the depths of this deepest underworld
hold on as long as i can
before the darkness began til there's nothing left to remain
of who i was
til the storm took away who i was...
til the surge washed away who i was

...til there's nothing left to remain
of what i was...
Track Name: Captain's Refrain
i've lived a long and lonely time
seen too much for any man alive
maybe i've gone blind?...

everything has drifted away and left me behind.
Track Name: The Approaching Front
so the writing was on the wall & you must've seen it all
but you were wrapped in your own little world
the warnings had all commenced but it was of little consequence
you thought that you could ride it out
so you rode out to the gray as it lit up like midday
never one to walk away you were resigned
you had fallen for the trap & there was now no turning back
you had crossed onto the approaching front line...

run if you need to • hide if you want to • say what you want to
to save your life
do what you have to • cry if you need to • don't let it beat you
save your life
Track Name: Indigenous
The sun will rise and with the wicked rain will come
Purging from the earth those who have taken from her bosom
At moonlight the wolves cry as the rain turns to hail
Battering every home Battering every sail
You take from mother earth you give back in its place
You take from the soil you grow that which will sustain
Our people will survive for the respect we give her lands
Our people will thrive knowing that it is she who commands,
Without the goddess of the sun the crops will never grow
Without the goddess of the rain the waters will not flow
Without respect for what our Mother Earth gives our tribe
Without love for her gifts our people will not survive.
A lesson is to be learned as you have forsaken her gift of life.
A time has come to burn everything you have built with all your strife
And when the darkness falls your blood will fill the grass
And when the darkness falls you will understand the power
of her wrath...
Run if you need to . Hide if you have to Say what you want to
To save your life
Do what you have to Cry if you need to Don't let it beat you
To save your life... For your life...
Track Name: The Surge
There's nothing you haven't heard before
They're just the facts of the background noise
Run for your life when the bell tolls your time

People will run some will follow you
but you're always tried for the things you do
Riding the Surge is a test of your nerve.
Ride It Out

These cities can stand proud and stay intact
but they'll turned down in seconds flat
Running around with their heads in the clouds
Making amends now for nature's revenge.
Ride It Out

This is like nothing you've seen before
It's not a drill this is all out war
Run you can try but there's no way to hide
Look to the skies while they're watching their backs
Best try to leave now it's time to make tracks

Ride It Out!
Track Name: A Cold Gray Morning
the rain has come we’ve lost the sun
reminisce of when we were young
you wake up to find... a cold gray morning

we contemplate the choices we make
not understanding just what’s at stake
i can swear ... i’ve been here before

it’s probably now the time...
to start trying to find...
the answers in your mind...
it’s been there all the time...
you know the past is bittersweet
resolutions are incomplete
and once you cross that line there's no returning
from that moment on the sky is clear
from all your cares and all your fears
and you wake up to find another cold gray morning

it’s probably now the time...
to start trying to find...
the answers in your mind...
it’s been there all the time...

it's gonna be fine
we're in the clear
just follow my line...
we're almost here
just let go and feel it all surround you
the clouds are almost gone
they're starting to part
feel the warmth embrace your heart
you wake up to find a whole new morning

take me back to the sun...
come see what you've become...
don't let the rains overrun...
don't be burned by the sun.

the rain has come we've lost the sun
reminisce of when we were young...
you wake up to find...
a cold gray morning
Track Name: Into The Dead Calm
Another long day has come to end
Heading out towards the evening sun
The sky turns crimson in its wake
Setting sail into the dead calm

There isn't a moment when I am not afraid
I've even knelt down on my knees and prayed
You may think it is so lonely on the sea
But it's the last place that feels like home for me

It's 2 in the morning and I am still awake
Startled by a foreboding that I just couldn't shake
A distant coyote howling in the dark
And a murder of crows are fleeing to the north

I can still see that look upon your face
And it still haunts me until this very day
But even as those dark visions fade my mind
I clutch onto them and the world I left behind

There's nothing left here in this world for me
So this old man sets out his course for sea
As the Harbormaster sounds his last alarm
I set sail into the dead calm

the dead calm...
Track Name: The Tempest
light up the sky the tempest erupting and
everything else will be washed away
collect up all your earthly possessions
the rest of the world has been reclaimed

the waves will eclipse the tallest buildings
everything in its path will surely drown
the world will descend to a watery graveyard
it's time to head to higher ground

we've modernized our infrastructure
at the expense of our own resource
evoking the wrath of mother nature
now she's come back to reclaim it all
look to the sky the tempest is spinning
look the sea the surge will flow
look to the earth the tremors are rumbling
look out humans we're on our own...

category 5's are churning up
a path of destruction on the gulf stream
F5 tornadoes attacking our cities
till there's nothing left of society

the oceans temperatures are rising
making super-cell hurricanes
causing overwhelming destruction
to the point that they've begun to annihilate

we've modernized our infrastructure
at the expense of our own resource
evoking the wrath of mother nature
now she's come back to reclaim it all
look to the sky the tempest is spinning
look the sea the surge will flow
look to the earth the tremors are rumbling
look out humans we're on our own...

mother nature has come to purge us
removing the virus to which she gave birth
putting an end to human existence and
restoring the balance to planet earth
Track Name: A Random Disturbance
smoldering along barely embers of a flame
inferno reached the sky and burned it all away
you could have called for help but you thought you could escape
it happened all so fast and suddenly it was too late
why didn't you go?
why didn't you go?...

thunder filled the air as the lightning crossed the sky
emergency lights glowed as you felt the sudden dive
what was once skyward had slipped below your feet
free falling through the night to the clouds underneath
you must have known
there was nowhere else to go...
Track Name: The Confluence
she started out at dusk for several weeks trawling out at sea
hoping to keep at bay those would repossess her keep
it was a desert on the reach for nearly a season’s time
the Andrea his only love had fallen several monthly payments behind

all he needed was a lucky break
to stop the debtors encroaching calls
but you can’t expect a man to eat
based solely on the luck of the draw
he was enchanted by the sea as a child
back when his father still influenced his mind
he said the man with the roughest hands...
he will be the one who will best provide

so he sailed off to the reach
on an angry sea of darkening clouds
for that once in a lifetime catch
hoping to make his father proud
it was the perfect confluence
as the nor'easter drove up the coast
merging with the mighty eastern front
forming the perfect holy ghost

it was the best catch of his life
and as the Gale finally took its toll
the Andrea was lost in the night...

the sea gives up what she will
so go and catch your fill
but prepared to her debt
sometimes with her strife ... sometimes with your life...


the lighthouse guided his way
a foghorn blared its siren's song
a sudden quiet fell upon the sea
as she sailed out into the dead calm
you can take from her keep
but be prepared to pay the toll
as he sailed into the disturbance fields
the sea claimed yet another salty soul
her briny deep may bring the perfect peace
but when you cross the autumn equinox
from the angel will suddenly emerge the BEAST
Track Name: Epitaph
i've lived a long and lonely time
seen too much for any man alive
maybe i've gone blind...
everything has drifted away and left me behind
you've heard my tale from your forlorn friend
now my transmission will come to an end
i'd hoped to make it through this day
everything that i ever was
has washed away...
