The Victory of the Whale – Official Video

Live session at the Cetaceans Gallery – Museum of Natural History, Venice.

With this song and video, we are happy to celebrate the Victory of the Whale and the success of Operation SISO 4. The operation took place in the waters around the Aeolian Islands, resulting in the confiscation of over 15km of deadly driftnets and no entangled whales in the Med Sea so far.
The video was filmed at the Museum of Natural History in Venice under the specimen of huge dimensions of a finback whale (Balaenoptera physalus) and a sperm whale.

The “Victory of the Whale” song is a track composed by Camilla Fascina and Edoardo Cicchinelli in support of Sea Shepherd. It is performed by Camilla Fascina (voice), Roberto Soldatini playing a 300-hundred-year-old Stradivari cello, and Daniele Capuzzo (keyboard and arrangement).
It includes original marine mammal sounds provided by the Watkins Marine Mammal Sound Database, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

The lyrics of the song recall the epic victory of a mighty sperm whale, Mocha Dick (later renamed Moby Dick by Herman Melville) that rammed and sank the American whaler Essex from Nantucket. The whalers had just harpooned and killed a pod of sperm whales, including a female sperm whale. The ramming of the Essex by Mocha Dick represents the victory of nature over man.
The sinking of a ship is never an event to celebrate, but in this case, it represents a rare moment in history when Nature’s sense of justice prevails.

The video features Geert Vons, Artistic Director of Sea Shepherd Global.

The “Victory of the Whale” song will be part of an upcoming music album entirely dedicated to Sea Shepherd, to be released soon. All proceeds collected from the song and album purchased go towards supporting Sea Shepherd with their ongoing campaign to protect marine animals.

The “Victory of the Whale” is not only a song: it started as an art project in collaboration with the London Tattoo Convention, resulting in an art book with over 70 contributing artists. Furthermore, an Elmo & Montegrappa pen and a limited-edition T-shirt, all available for purchase online on the Sea Shepherd store.

The Victory of the Whale Lyrics

Cannibals and kings,
You are a very bad disease
Living in a state of fear
What’s surrounding me ain’t real
And I’m eating all your Christmas trees
With anger in this anarchy
I will chase you in the rain
No compromises in this pain

I GAIN CONTROL
IN A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO RETURN
EACH STEP I TAKE
THE OCEANS BREATHE A BRAND-NEW DAY

Whalers in the snow,
I’ll send an SOS to the world
You can call me Mocha Dick, sinking whalers in the sea
Now there’s a weeping anthropologist
I’m breaking down his theories

I GAIN CONTROL
IN A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO RETURN
EACH STEP I TAKE
THE OCEANS BREATHE A BRAND-NEW DAY
