I make loud guitar noises and have unpopular opinions. If it’s underground alternative or progressive metal, I probably like it.

REVIEW: Sleep Token – ‘Take Me Back To Eden’

Mateo Ottie 0
Shrouded in complete anonymity, Sleep Token’s identity often lies in their robes and distinct masks. There’s even a deep lore surrounding the band’s characters and their cult-like imagery for those who are into that, however, to me, this isn’t what defines the band. Sleep Token are rather defined by contradictions, led by heavenly R&B-esque vocals […]

They’ve always been one of the most consistent and strongest bands in their respective scene, but for whatever reason, they have never failed to fly under the radar. Their music has phenomenal shelf life, but at times, it can lack memorability. It’s an odd scenario to be in, […]

This sentiment of frustration is the loudest thus far of their career on ‘This is Why’, channeling the past five years of pent-up political […]
