Sleep is a San Jose metal band from the 1990’s that has reformed occasionally over the past decade for a handful of performances and recordings. The group consists of vocalist/bassist Al Cisneros, guitarist Matt Pike (who also performs with High On Fire), and drummer Jason Roeder (previously of Neurosis).
Jerusalem and Dopesmoker, previous releases from the band, are considered classics of the doom metal genre.
The band’s latest album is titled The Sciences, and was released in April of 2018.
This week’s Song of the Week pick is the track “Marijuanaut’s Theme” off of The Sciences.
