Antero Sleeps / Press

"The music is both powerfully heavy and densely atmospheric. The crushing riffs are irresistible, the drumwork is explosive, and the vocals are appealingly gritty and thoroughly impassioned."

"One of the best albums I have listened to in a long time. If you like any sub category of doom metal/rock, you need to check this out. This band from Austin, Texas is going somewhere big and soon. A heavy but melodic blend of the funeral doom sound but with a stoner/psychedelic feel. This is metal that tells a story"

"The territory, and the sound, in which Antero Sleeps dare to go may be not new or unknown, but that’s not important for me: they are not towed, they are tuning their personal engine, they are telling stories, and I follow them willingly."

"The music is infectious and in no time you find your head bobbing with it. No song under 5 minutes and thanks to all the twist and turns within, no song feels overdone or too long."

"This is a band that is perfect for fans of Yob, Neurosis, and early Mastodon. These guys have the music and the concept, and when combined they have something that really can set them apart from the pack."

"No matter how heavy they get there seems to be an underlying beauty to it all."

"Transformation“ serves as another interlude in itself, this time on strummed acoustic guitar with a droning echo behind it. Here, the decent production helps enforce an intimate ambience, which is what such a breather should do in the first place, so this track is a winner, the more so as it calmly segues into "Calimbian Flight“.

"Antero Sleeps combine a rather ambitious science fiction story (obviously set on Titan) with sludgy Doom Rock as you know it from High On Fire and earlier Mastodon."

" I have read the lyrics to each song and have to say I’m hooked. As a somewhat writer, storytelling in songs have always given me the warm fuzzies. I was even more pleased to see that the band has full-blown stories written that go help enhance the music and better understand the songs on a whole new level. I have to say I am deeply impressed with this band on every level and eagerly await any new material be it written story or musical"

"Titan by Antero Sleeps does not leave any room for rest. While only five songs almost all are over 7 minutes in length making each song leave its mark before the next takes over"
