With ‘The Adorned Fathomless Creation’ US prog metal outfit OCEANS OF SLUMBER release the second single off of their recently announced new and self-titled album ‘Oceans Of Slumber’, due to be released on September 4th, 2020, via Century Media Records worldwide.
OCEANS OF SLUMBER comment: “Violence, revenge, retribution, repeat. The adorned fathomless creation that is humanity, that is society, that is each of us. Warped and blinded by this eye for an eye mentality, we stumble along the path of this insidious and cyclical nature of violence and pain. Hate begets more hate. Fear a contagion. Compassion a lost art of emotional bending. Outcry, anger, rage, repeat. We long for the gentle embrace of compassion, hope to be soothed by a love that is no where to be found. So the machine churns, spewing smoke along a degenerative wasteland. Victim, valor, vengeance, repeat. Our only hope is to remember that among ourselves is an ability to connect, an ability to heal, an ability to grow. To break the machine and free ourselves from its corrosive and cancerous nature. Teach, acknowledge, heal, repeat.”
Launched via 2013’s ‘Aetherial’ debut, but truly blossoming upon the arrival of vocalist Cammie Gilbert for 2015’s ‘Blue’ EP and the following year’s ‘Winter’ full-length, OCEANS OF SLUMBER re-emerge in 2020 with the weight of expectation bearing down on their shoulders. The result is ‘Oceans Of Slumber’, an album that masterfully redefines the band’s sound for a new era while bringing their conceptual core into sharper focus. Sonically spectacular and proudly melodramatic and yet vulnerable and intimate, these new songs represent the commencement of the next stage in this remarkable band’s evolution.
‘Oceans Of Slumber’ is available as Standard CD Jewelcase, Gatefold black 2LP+CD, Digital album and can be pre-ordered here.
