The latest EP by Ocean in a Bottle 'First Landing on Venus' covers an imaginary journey landing on Venus.

Venus is described as the most beautiful and brightest shining planet in our system but has its dense atmosphere traps heat in a runaway version of the greenhouse effect that warms Earth. As a result, temperatures on Venus reach 870 degrees Fahrenheit (465 degrees Celsius), more than hot enough to melt lead. Probes that scientists have landed there have survived only a few hours before being destroyed.

Venus has a hellish atmosphere as well, consisting mainly of carbon dioxide with clouds of sulfuric acid, and scientists have only detected trace amounts of water in the atmosphere. The atmosphere is heavier than that of any other planet, leading to a surface pressure 90 times that of Earth. Incredibly, however, early in Venus' history the planet may have been habitable, according to models from NASA researchers at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

This new EP by Ocean in a Bottle is a imaginary landing in the future of the first manned Spacecraft and the feelings and the emotions that all inside would have before landing and the choir like sound of the sounds in this EP making them feel like they were stepping into what was originally described as heaven but in reality was very likely to be something else altogether.
