Sleep Token – The Summoning Music video

I’m going to be honest, until a few seconds ago I know nothing about Sleep Token. I still know very little. I hear Chokehold was suggested to me and when I listened to it I immediately thought to myself:

This is like Imagine Dragons, but rythmycally a bit more interesting and a heavier, sligly more ominous feel

The group are anonymous for now and conceals its identity with masks. That normally doesn’t last very long once a band start becoming popular. Either way, the imagery on their website grabbed my attention. Symbols in art intrigue me. I guess I like a puzzle to figure out and it kind of seems like Sleep Token enjoys being cryptic and has made it part of their whole thing. I did some digging (asked a bot to spit me out an answer) and got this:

“Sleep Token is a British musical project formed in 2015 by singer Vessel and multi-instrumentalist Jesper Liveröd. The band is known for its enigmatic and secretive nature, with Vessel being the only member who performs in public. Sleep Token’s music is a blend of various genres, including alternative rock, electronic, and metal, and is characterized by heavy percussion, atmospheric synths, and emotional vocals. The band has released two EPs and two full-length albums: “Two” (2017), “Sunship” (2018), “Visions” (2019), and “Blessings” (2021). Sleep Token has gained a dedicated fanbase for its unique sound and captivating live performances.”

I take no responsibility for the accuracy of the above information. I prefer my industrial-synth-rock-metal in the shape of Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson etc. What I like most about The Summoning is the opening riff is very reminiscent of Mick Gordon’s Doom Original Soundtracks.
