Wood Stove House Spotlight: The Viking Progress
Athens, GA songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Morales spent the summer of 2008 working as a marine biologist on two commercial fishing boats in the Bering Sea, one of the deadliest areas of the world. The two boats, The Viking and The Progress became the setting for Morales to develop a new musical concept. The result was an introspective album called Whistling While the End Is Near, released in April 2012 under the project name The Viking Progress. The entire album deals with human experiences and various reactions and perspectives on an apocalyptic end of the world.
