OCEANS OF SLUMBER -Debut New Single

OCEANS OF SLUMBER have unleashed a new single/video for their track “The Adorned Fathomless Creation“. The group’s self-titled debut album is slated to be out September 4th. Speaking of this track the band offered:

“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.

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...
