Ocean of Opportunity tells a compelling story about a Norwegian civil clerk who, after the untimely death of his wife and the news of his own impending demise, embarks on a fantastic voyage around the world; first by sea towards Russia, through China and onto West Coast America, then taking to the skies in a hot air balloon.
The story is ultimately optimistic in its telling; the protagonist has a thirst for adventure and a spirit that can't be broken. This is brilliantly played out in the uplifting power metal melodies and in the four-octave range vocals for which PelleK is best known. PelleK has created a concept album that combines my favourite bits from the genre; the symphonic aura of Kamelot, the imaginative concepts of Sonata Arctica and the structure of Seventh Wonder, all added with PelleK's own talent on top.
