Oh, Sleeper has announced a co-headlining tour with The Chariot for this October.  The Texas based band recently released their sophomore full-length Son Of The Morning of which Alternative Press wrote “The band are tighter than a duck’s ass and the songs range from simply good to damned awesome.”  Ultimate-Guitar.com echoed the sentiment saying the album “possesses a powerful yet melodic sound with shredding guitar work, a strong bass sound, and beastly drumming” and “I’d certainly buy it again if I lost it!”  The band is currently on tour as main support to Every Time I Die and Bring Me The Horizon which will run until October 11thSon Of The Morning is the follow up to the band’s 2007 debut When I Am God (Solid State Records) which scanned over 25,000 copies in the U.S.  The new album is a epic concept work, centered around nothing less than the final battle between the devil and God.  The band recently released a video trailer for the title track at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_5aL67HsVs&feature=channel

 

Previous accolades for the band include “Oh Sleeper have pieced together a smart metalcore album chock full of turbulent guitar progressions, headbanging breakdowns and melodies of epic proportions” OUTBURN.

 

“A ferocious brand of thunderous thrash, giving way to the types of catchy hooks and sweeping soundscapes you would never expect to find in the realm of Christian metalcore.” ALTERNATIVE PRESS.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
