Houston-based progressive masters Oceans Of Slumber unveil the second single off of their upcoming self-titled studio album. Watch a music video for “The Adorned Fathomless Creation” below.
Oceans Of Slumber are ready to unleash their self-titled effort, a follow-up to 2018’s “The Banished Hearts”, on September 4th via Century Media Records. It was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Katatonia, Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath). The album features 12 new tracks, including previously released “A Return To The Earth Below”.
The band on the new single: “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 nowhere to be found. So the machine churns, spewing smoke along a degenerative wasteland. Victim, valour, 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.”
