There is death/doom and then there is BEYOND HELL’s The Sleeper Awakens. Featuring drummer Elektrokutioner (DECREPITAPH, FATHER BEFOULED, FESTERED, etc) and with guest appearances by Patrick Bruss of CRYPTICUS (who also mixed/mastered) and Slyof FONDLECORPSE, The Sleeper Awakens crunches, lurks, and spooks like HOODED MENACE, frequently twisting into romping death metal form. Yet the deeper into the abyss one goes the more dynamics are revealed, not the least of which is accomplished soloing and sections of pure dark majesty. And all of it chills to the bone! As if that weren’t enough, the album also includes the sold out …And Evil Crept Through EP (tracks 10 – 13), for a grand total of 13 cuts of face melting horror death and spine tingling doom.
The Sleeper Awakens was co-released by Dark Descent Records and Skeleton Plague Records.
