Wake Up and Get Some SLEEP (For Free!)

By the time Dopesmoker finally received a proper release in 2003, Sleep had already been disbanded for about five years. Matt Pike moved on to bigger and heavier things with High on Fire, while Cisneros and Hakius apparently surpassed the human boundaries of intoxication and formed Om. Much to the dismay of Sleep fans a.k.a. stoned burnouts everywhere, it looked like we’d heard the last of them together. Well, guess what nerds? The somewhat-recently reunited band just released a single through Adult Swim’s weird little single’s series. It’s the first new song we’ve heard from Sleep in 18 years. So brush off all that Cheetoh-dust and get your lazy ass in here!

I know some of you jammed this track over the weekend, but this is a really good time to LISTEN TO IT AGAIN because RIFFS. Plus, I’d thought it would be nice to remind you that as of today, you can download it for free right over here.  Did anybody else remind you? That’s the kind of care you’ll only find within this world-class toilet-establishment. So don’t ever say Masterlord SteelDragon never does anything for the peasants.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    I got a contact high from listening to that Sleep song.

    • Sponge Of Mystery

      i agree, it’s much better than Squidward’s half assed clarinet playing

  • Cool Guy Steve

    gonna be a doom kinda year!

  • Gurp

    Did someone say free?

  • KJM

    More than likely I’ll be seeing them next month.

    • Come pick me up. We can go on a little pixel guy date.

      • KJM

        I’ll have to be careful. They don’t like my kind in Boston.

    So when did this happen, exactly? This Toilet ov Hell thing?

    • Beunhaas

      It started exactly a week ago I think.

      • Mook Styfawker

        Ah, thank you. I caved and checked Website Thou Shalt Not Be Named again and saw a bunch of stuff mentioning this place. Good to see people got sick of the bullshit and finally did something about it!

        • W.

          Hail Mook! Welcome back. We’ve missed you, buddy.

          • Mook Styfawker

            I seriously doubt everyone has missed me, but it’s good to see you and (most of) the usual batch of fellow psychos are here.

          • I tried sending you a message on FB to invite you to this. You won’t accept friend requests!

          • Mook Styfawker

            Strange, I don’t remember setting my FB to that.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            HAIL and Welcome!

      • The idea was born long before that though.

    • hi! you’re back!

    • Welcome, Mook!

  • Beunhaas

    Sounds good. It’s very much sleep, but still novel and more modern sounding.

  • Between The Buried & Smee

    I’ve really liked High on Fire, but their music has never quite gotten on Sleep’s level.

    • crazytaco_12

      Dude, it’s all about “Madness of an Architect”

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    my dad really digs these guys. I remember the old stuff. This sounds a lot like it, but with guitars.

  • Jeff Loomis Rules

    Just saw this band on the old blabber… thoughts? Greg Christian just joined, with Danny Tomb (4-ARMS) and Dean Wells from Teramaze.

    guys i went to warped tour yesterday cuz Enter Shikari, Beartooth, and Breathe Carolina were there (fuck you i like them) and they were selling Converge’s Jane Doe for $5 in the discount cd section at their label’s tent lol

    I love the fact that the number of comments on a post here usually smokes the number of comments on an MS article.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    This is THE shit!!!

  • Brian_aka_Guppusmaximus

    Man,this would sound so much better with some chuggy guitar lines, soaring leads and a bit of a Gospel swing to the rhythm section (drums, bass).

    I’ve envisioned this sound in my head.More like a progression of Trouble & COC along the lines of Confessor. Or maybe just like Confessor but with more hooks?

  • Steve Smithwick

    I don’t know shit about Sleep, but I know that I’ll be listening to this tonight when I get home.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      Sleep’s Holy Mountain! Sleep’s Holy Mountain! Sleep’s Holy Mountain! Also, watch Jodorowsky’s epic The Holy Mountain. But listen to the Sleep album first.

  • This is some good shit 11/10

    • Gluteus_Maximus_Rage

      I think you mean -1 out of 10 flushes.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    After hearing this, I checked out their old stuff. Is it weird that this new song totally gripped me, but the old didn’t do much for me? Feeling a bit bummed and weird about this, I was expecting to be drooling at the end of it.

  • Gluteus_Maximus_Rage

    I haven’t really heard much or know about Sleep, but this song reminds me of the band Floor. But I think I like Floor’s sound a bit better. I’ll have to investigate Sleep a bit more.
