Sleep Token are a masked, anonymous collective of musicians united by their worship of an ancient deity crudely dubbed Sleep, since no modern tongue can properly express its name. This being once held great power, bestowing ancient civilisations with the gift of dreams, and the curse of nightmares. Even today, though faded from prominence, 'Sleep' yet lurks in the subconscious minds of man, woman, and child alike. Fragments of beauty, horror, anguish, pain, happiness, joy, anger, disgust, and fear coalesce to create expansive, emotionally textured music that simultaneously embodies the darkest, and the brightest abstract thoughts. He has seen them. He has felt them. He is everywhere. Sleep Token, led by the perpetually tormented, supremely talented Vessel, creates music that brings to the fore our most submerged thoughts and feelings, coaxing them from the desolate, terrifying caves of our subconscious mind. Though sonically the band takes inspiration from the likes of Leprous, Agent Fresco, Bon Iver, Meshuggah and many more, their music remains almost impossible to classify in terms of genre. Soft, heavy, light and dark, the band's second EP - 'Two' - comprises of three beautifully crafted tracks that will leave the listener completely in awe.
