SEVEN SISTERS OF SLEEP
"Seven Sisters of Sleep" (Southern Lord; 2011)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Bruising Los Angeles squad Seven Sisters of Sleep administer a smorgasbord of caustic sludge hardcore on their eponymous eight-track excursion.
Dark and heavy, this album rumbles with damaging low-end ferocity (“Passed Out Standing”), carefully treading the line between volatile hardcore punk (“Swamp”) and oppressive sludge metal (“Tide is Rising”).
Mixing slowcore tempos into the mayhem to give off a NOLA-esque metallic edge (“Christmas Morning”), Seven Sisters of Sleep have created a familiar yet rewarding brand of unsettling music drawn from a wide pallet of abrasive aggression and uncompromising heaviness.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
