Released: 19th May 2023
With half the album already drip fed before its release, it would be fair to assume there isn’t much mystery left to uncover on ‘Take Me Back To Eden’. Thankfully, you’d be wrong.
This album pulls no punches. It revels in its mercuriality, wildly swinging from the lightest touches into the heaviest of blows. Restless and relentless, Sleep Token punctuate those skyscraper moments with the most audacious twists towards garage, jazz, or even the odd trap beat, all without losing their own authenticity. At over an hour long, it keeps the album fizzing with unpredictability and possibility.
This is the most inventive metal has sounded in a long time. Sleep Token have been regularly touted as the future of the genre. On ‘Take Me Back To Eden’, the future is now.
