Somnolent Priests – Act I: Awareness (Double LP)
Double LP – 12-inch 33rpm Black Vinyl
Album released through Sunday Fog Records on November 27th, 2021.
This first act was live recorded during an Artist-in-residence program followed by a performance at Les Caves du Manoir in Martigny, Switzerland. It consists of four pieces following a precise narrative structure. The project’s concept:
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 an 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. Thus, in their quest for the creation of a new God, the SomnolentPriests are waiting for their time.
