Oceans of Slumber have announced their new album, Where Gods Fear to Speak, is scheduled to arrive on September 13th via Season of Mist. The follow-up to 2022’s Starlight and Ash, marks the group’s overall sixth record and first with Season of Mist. Following the video of the title track today (18th), the Texas progressive metal outfit has unveiled a video for their new single “Poem of Ecstasy.”

Dobber Beverly comments:

“Where Gods Fear to Speak exists somewhere between The Handmaid’s Tale, The Dark Tower and Cormac McCarthy. It’s part science fiction, part western gunslinger with a heavy dash of post-apocalyptic survival. Every time you make a new record, you think it’s the best. ‘Poem of Ecstasy’ is easily one of the best songs we’ve ever written. It sounds like an energetic, pissed-off-band, with enigmatic storytelling and all those magical things.”

Cammie Beverly adds:

“All of the songs on Where Gods Fear to Speak are set in this futuristic, derelict world, where the lower class are rebelling against their overzealous rulers but ‘Poem of Ecstasy’ is the album’s big no-holds-barred love song.”
