U.S. Heavy Metal trio SLEEPLESS have released a lyric video for “Deluded Hordes,” a track from forthcoming debut EP Blood Libel. Check it out at youtu.be/uNs-vPyS6YA
Original members of 80’s death metal pioneers Dead Conspiracy, Eric Dorsett and Eric Detablan have joined forces with their old friend, guitarist, singer and production machine Kevin Hahn to form SLEEPLESS. Classic, scorching Heavy Metal pulses through debut EP Blood Libel, which will be released on March 12 via Necromantic Press Records.
The first single from Blood Libel, “Blood Libel (A Vampire Tale),” was released late last year and is available for purchase and streaming at the following location: sleeplessmetal.bandcamp.com/track/blood-libel-a-vampire-tale
Heavy metal inspired by an internal need to slam accepted dogma and to shed light on a dark past that is largely forgotten, Blood Libel is the genuine article! Metal, thrash, melody, and at times, depressive introspection, add up to a memorable gut-punch of an EP.
“The trick is that they are meant to be a traditional heavy metal act, but the death metal history makes its way into the actual music itself, thus creating something that could be heavy/death metal? Blood Libel is a quick taste of something stellar in the making.”– Sleeping Village Reviews
“A classic heavy metal EP, influenced by a determination to bring dark history into the light and change perspectives, in the process. Combining melodic thrash with bleak contemplation, ‘BL’ packs a punch.”– Rock Queen Reviews
“Thrashy, heavy and with melodic tinges, Sleepless come out swinging.”– Games, Brrraaains & a Head-Banging Life
The EP was produced and mastered by Kevin Hahn (Dead Conspiracy, Poison Idea, Panzer God, Paul Gilbert).
