lallig00d At times it sounds like someone came in to the studio & turned off (or on) a bunch of pedals at the same time. Other times it sounds like someone switched the radio to a different channel. Regardless, I find that these instrumental jams flip all the right switches in my head! Favorite track: Above Snakes.

TheKenWord2017 Tech death with spoons. Bluesy, surfy, funky tech death. But also with spoons. I... I ju... what other choice is there but to fork over the cash? Favorite track: No Rest for the Moral.

Cyril Glaume "Above Snakes" c'est Retour Vers le Futur 3 revisité par Sleep Terror, dans lequel l'habituel Tech-Modern Death instrumental va taquiner le Groove Metal du désert.

Charles Passarell This album is the perfect balance that I would expect from Sleep Terror. A lot of artists can't maintain the balance of levity and seriousness after this long and I really appreciate that this album sounds just as inventive and fun as their original demo. Love it!

Sleep Terror return in an all new form with 'Above Snakes', a cathartic dark western fantasy soaked in boggy jams, honky tonk, surf, southern groove metal and delta blues in their trademark style of genre-bending tech-death. The album closes out the trilogy that started with 'El Insomne' and follows up to 'Abreaction'. With a live lineup and a new identity that is a coming of age, 'Above Snakes' is a survivor's tale delivering a focused taste of the next chapter which sees Luke and cohorts honing in on an even more daring sound. This is a galloping wild ride into vengeance.
