Sleep @ Kino Šiška, Ljubljana, 18.4.2019
Sleep are coming back to our part of Europe, doing a special show in Kino Šiška, Ljubljana, on the 18th of April, 2018. Tickets on pre-sale are 24,00 €, and the price at the entrance on concert day will be 27,00 €. (Honestly, I’m not sure if there will be any left, it’s Sleep after all).
The trio Sleep, with a current line-up of Al Cisneros, Matt Pike and Jason Roeder, is deservedly regarded as one of the most influential metal bands of all time. Their second album “Sleep’s Holy Mountain”, released in 1992, is acknowledged as a seminal stoner metal record that redefined the very foundations of the genre. Its follow-up “Dopesmoker”, no less exceptional, led to the group disbanding due to record label issues. After a lengthy hiatus, the band started reforming in 2009 for select live shows, but there wasn’t even as much as an inkling of any new material.
That all changed on 20th of April, 2018, the global holiday of marijuana aficionados everywhere, with the sudden release of “The Sciences” via Jack White’s Third Man Records. No forewarning, no unnecessary pomp, just six excellent songs that proved Sleep had never lost form. That legends are forever. That some comebacks are Comebacks with a capital “C”, not just taking advantage of faded glory.
