Stemming from the Scottish Highlands and the forests of Southern Sweden. Sleepwulf are the new wizards on the block of early doom rock. Swedish occult rock specialists Sleepwulf present their new album Sunbeams Curl in its entirety courtesy of Cvlt Nation. It will be released worldwide on February 18th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
From mountain peak to valley deep, Sleepwulf`s sophomore album and Heavy Psych Sounds debut Sunbeams Curl is a journey that channels the sultry sounds of riff-rock and psych-infused proto-doom, enhanced by the warm organic texture of a live analog recording. Summoning maximum levels of fuzz, sordid tales and occultism, the Kristianstad foursome offers a heady sonic experience that will strongly appeal to fans of Uriah Heep, Witchcraft and Kadavar.
While Sleepwulf`s self-titled debut was about cycles, this one is about breaking them and their consequences. Sunbeams Curl delves further into the well of ancient mysticism, alchemy, and the occult. The underlying thread connecting it all is the power of words to manifest reality; in both the individual and the collective consciousness, extending to the album artwork, with hidden optics and codes. Deciphering these will reap their own rewards. “Sunbeams Curl” was recorded live in the band’s own woodland studio outside Kristianstad, Sweden. To capture a live organic sound everything was done live onto an old tape machine. This new album is both heavier and more dynamic, building upon every aspect of the last. This is an album with hidden secrets which will unravel in the not-too-distant future. Also watch Sleepwulf’s new video Stone Ape.
