A new Czech black metal band SOMNIATE is about to hit the public with its debut concept album entitled “The Meyrinkian Slumber”. Being the newcomers, there is enough experience in the band's ranks which consist of musicians known from BRUTALLY DECEASED, ET MORIEMUR, FEEBLE MINDED, HEAVING EARTH, MALLEPHYR, SÓL. However, SOMNIATE has come out as a strong entity having its own unique vision and intent.
"THE MEYRINKIAN SLUMBER" is a 5 track concept full-length album dealing with magical realism of Gustav Meyrink and his masterpiece novel "The Golem".
A tale of searching for the ascension through identity shifts, alchemical concepts and suffering, all set in a distorted Kafka-like vision of Prague.
