A couple of weeks after unveiling a live rendition to their common work with the video of ‘Birth’ and then giving birth to the effort on the legal platforms, Swiss Drone/Tribal Doom/Improv Post-Metal duo Somnolent Priests finally released its debut full-length album called “Act I: Awareness”, on Deluxe 2xLP & Digital through SundayFog Records.

Mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, etc.), the album is also available right now for free streaming on Bandcamp and the RareMetalAlbums YouTube channel:

Official statement:
“Humanity is in the 22nd century of its era. Due to science’s relentless discovery of the secrets of the universe, every superstition and belief is vanishing.

Major religions have collapsed and are only seen as ancient cults.

However, from the darkness, driven by the fear of abandoned humanity without any divine guidance, members of a secret order decided to devote their research in artificial intelligence to the creation of a superior and ethereal being.

In their quest for the creation of God, the Somnolent Priests are waiting for their time.”
