BIO
Sleep is a stoner doom metal band from San Jose, California. Active during the 1990s, Sleep earned critical and record label attention early in their career. Critic Eduardo Rivadavia describes them as "perhaps the ultimate stoner rock band" and notes they exerted a strong influence on heavy metal in the 1990s. However, conflict with their record company had contributed to Sleep's breakup by the end of the decade.

Sleep evolved in the early 1990s from the band Asbestosdeath, which was established by vocalist/bassist Al Cisneros, drummer Chris Hakius, and guitarist Tom Choi. Asbestosdeath expanded to a quartet with the introduction of Matt Pike on guitar, and recorded two singles - "Dejection" for Profane Existence and the self released "Unclean". Choi departed, and would later found Operator Generator, It Is I, Noothgrush, and Las Vegas' Black Jetts. Asbestosdeath recruited Justin Marler as replacement and the band adopted the new name, Sleep.

Black Sabbath and Saint Vitus both had a major influence on Sleep's psychedelic doom sound.

Their debut album Volume One was released in 1991. Frequently compared to bands like Saint Vitus, Sleep soon gained a devoted fanbase within the developing doom metal scene. The record also showcased the band's penchant for lysergic dirges. Marler quit the band soon after to take up life as a monk, leaving the band as a power trio for the recording of their Volume Two EP, which was released unofficially by Off The Disc Records in 1991.

The band's next album was sent to the independent label, Earache, as a demo. Recorded at Razors Edge studios in San Francisco, with Billy Anderson handling production, the tape showcased Sleep's love of all things retro, from the blatant Black Sabbath/Blue Cheer influences, to their fixation with 1970's-style tube amplification. The label immediately signed the band and released the tape exactly as it was received.

Sleep's Holy Mountain (1992) is widely considered a seminal album in the evolution of stoner metal. The album's release was followed by a potentially lucrative offer from London Records, and Sleep signed with them. Around this time, Earache released its first Black Sabbath Tribute album, and Sleep contributed a cover of "Snowblind".

Under their new contract, they began work on their third album, Dopesmoker, in 1995. Much to the dismay of executives at London records, Dopesmoker was a single song more than one hour long. London Records declared the album unmarketable and refused to release it. Sleep returned to the studio and then submitted their second attempt at the new album. They had retitled it Jerusalem, re-written some of the lyrics and trimmed it down to a "lean" 52 minutes, but it was essentially the same as Dopesmoker. London Records again refused to release it. Frustrated and generally unhappy with the situation, the members of Sleep decided to disband.

In 1998, Jerusalem was released posthumously as an "official bootleg" by a friend of the band (Tony Presedo of Tee Pee Records). Sleep and their former manager had full knowledge of this and granted it their approval. In 1999, Jerusalem was given an official legitimate release by The Music Cartel in the US and Rise Above Records in Europe.

Finally, in 2003 the original version of Dopesmoker was officially released by Tee Pee Records. It is generally considered the definitive version of the album. An excerpted version can be heard on Jim Jarmusch's Broken Flowers original soundtrack.

Cisneros and Hakius later formed the experimental rock band Om while Pike formed heavy metal band High On Fire.

In 2007 a CD compilation of both 7" releases of the pre-Sleep band, Asbestosdeath, was released on Southern Lord Records.

In May 2009, Sleep reformed to perform two exclusive reunion sets in England as part of the All Tomorrow's Parties music festival.

On November 19, 2009 Al Cisneros confirmed in an interview with The Obelisk that Sleep will be reuniting in the fall of 2010 for some US dates. It has also been confirmed that Jason Roeder (of experimental metal band Neurosis) will replace Chris Hakius on drums.

The group are confirmed to play the ATP New York 2010 music festival in Monticello, New York this September where they will perform Holy Mountain in its entirety. They are touring the rest of the United States, playing headlining dates and festivals, through September.

Sleep embarked on a 9-date US tour shortly after the All Tomorrow's Parties festival.

For those of you who were blessed to hear the mighty "Jerusalem" you are in for a treat. For those of you who never heard "Jerusalem" you are in for a shock and also a treat. Put simply, this is the logical conclusion for Metal which began with Black Sabbath's glorious "Master Of Reality". The thickest of riffs, the heaviest of tone, the fattest bass sound, the finest of drumming, they're all here. To hear this fantastic piece of work is a privilege. This is a triumph of artistic integrity over record-company avarice. I simply can't find the words to convey just how incredible this release is. The tragedy, of course, is that we'll probably never get to see "Dopesmoker" performed live by Sleep but, with this epic finally released as it was meant to be, we can fully appreciate the creative output of those who know great music consists of more than just verse-chorus-verse I urge you to hear this album, whether you're young and just getting into quality riffs or if you think you've heard it all before, I guarantee this album will open your eyes just just how good Metal can be when the corporate chains are broken and a great band extends itself to take Metal to extremes it has never been to before. A landmark release which deserves your full support. thumb.gif thumb.gif thumb.gif
