Sleep Now Sivylla

Self-titled by Sleep Now Sivylla (Self-released EP)

A member of the local Longview, TX metal scene for a while now, Sleep Now Sivylla is certain to reawaken themselves on a national level – judging by the ferocious content heard on their just released Self Titled EP.

On the spiritual side of the spectrum, Sleep Now Sivylla compares exceptionally well to anything Solid State and Facedown are placing out onto disc these days. The four songs found within are impassioned and brutal, destined to gain these guys a rabid following well beyond the vast confines of the Lone Star State.

Crush the head of the serpent! And burn down his throne!” screams the first song Walk To Asia, whose crucial lyrical content is inspiring to behold. The music grabs you by the throat instantly and refuses to loosen up on its lethal grip.

Pittsburgh Nellie is vast and ambitious in scope, complete with a gang chorus at the end that is sure to have the audience singing along. One of the most thrilling tracks on the EP and easier the best song the band has ever recorded.

Tear this sin from my flesh!” is the worship call on 3:16 To Yuma, the oldest song on the EP and the perhaps the most devastating as well. This one is guaranteed to not only send the hardcore pits into overdrive, but will leave you with plenty to reflect upon. The band has filmed a terrific video to this track which may be viewed at the conclusion of this review…

The decisive call to faith ends way to soon with the unearthly sounds of Azmodeous Of Azeroth. “We have betrayed our God,” is the cry at the beginning of the song, guaranteed to send chills down your spine. Eventually bursting into a sonic wall of sound, the track shows just how exciting and resourceful the Sleep Now Sivylla collective is.

Fans of bands such as Underoath and Norma Jean will think they’ve hit a treasure trove of sonic enlightenment when encountering the mesmerizing metal sensation known as Sleep Now Sivylla. The music is absolutely explosive and the lyrics impassioned and sincere.

All members of the band shine throughout the recording, including Zach Canter on vocals, Trevor Adams on drums and vocals, Josh Hardin on lead guitar, Peter Elijah in rhythm guitar, and Will Fisher on bass. Recorded with skilled precision by Drew Emory at My Plastic Studios.

Unsigned for now, but do not even expect Sleep Now Sivylla to hold on to that status for long. An impressive debut from a band on a mission who are destined for the big time.

Now available on iTunes!!!
