Two years after the acclaimed band followed in the footsteps of Captain Nemo beneath the seas with their comeback album, The Mystery Of Waterfalls, Nautilus return to the surface with their eighth studio album, A Floating City.

Based on Jules Verne’s semi-fictional travelogue “A Floating City” (1871), in which the “Great Eastern” sets off from Liverpool on its great voyage to the new world, Nautilus transpose the theme into the bitter reality of the present. The band refines their musical concept on the new album with the same line-up, but with expanded instruments and vocals. Once again, the symbiosis of their influences from the 70s (Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Tangerine Dream) succeeds in creating their own unmistakable style. Ecstatic guitar parts in the finale of the almost 15-minute key track “The Great Eastern”, pulsating psychedelic sequences, highly emotional folk echoes and surprising new facets and twists result in an incredibly varied, intense and highly melodic album with a wonderful flow. Grobschnitt co-founder and mastering expert Eroc, who also contributed a small but effective surprise to the departure of the floating city, once again ensured the good sound. From the very beginning, Nautilus designed their albums based on the great novels of the French visionary Jules Verne.
