The highly-anticipated fourth full-length from the celebrated act will be released in North America via 20 Buck Spin on November 8th, thundering with nearly eighty minutes of oppressive, beautiful, slow-motion magnificence.

As the release draws near, BrooklynVegan are hosting a stream of the second track from The Book Of Kings, entitled “The Waterless Streams.” With this track alone boasting over twelve minutes of MOURNFUL CONGREGATION‘s patented resonance, the importance of this album becomes immediately apparent.
