From San Jose, California.

Kyuss' partner in crime in creating the Stoner Rock genre. Ozzy Osbourne went on record as saying Sleep were the closest band he'd heard to Black Sabbath's original 70s style and feeling.

Sleep emerged in 1990 from the remains of Asbestosdeath, which featured members Al Cisneros (vocals/bass), Matt Pike (guitar), and Chris Hakius (drums). Along with 2nd guitar Justin Marler, the band released "Volume One" in 1991. Marler departed the band afterwards and the remaining trio recorded the group's follow up album, "Sleep's Holy Mountain" the following year. The album is now considered one of the most seminal releases in the "stoner rock" genre. This led to the band signing a major label deal with London Records. The label financed the band's next project, which was a single track called "Dopesmoker", which ran 63 minutes. The band informed the label that they had no intentions to edit the track nor tour behind it, as they were breaking up. London balked at the idea of releasing an album that contained a single, hour-long song. The band recorded a second version, this one clocking in at 52 minutes and re-titled "Jerusalem", but London shelved the release and the band split. In 1999, the Music Cartel released "Jerusalem" and 4 years later, Tee Pee issued "Dopesmoker", the latter of which tended to be considered the "definitive" version by many fans (although the band members expressed displeasure with both versions).

Following the split, Matt Pike formed High On Fire, while Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius eventually reunited in OM (8). Sleep's legend grew in the years following its split and in 2009 Pike, Cisneros, and Hakius reunited to perform two sets at All Tomorrow's Parties. The following year, Pike and Cisneros resumed touring as Sleep, which drummer Jason Roeder (of Neurosis) replacing Chris Hakius.

Power Trip
Power Trip
Formed in early 2008, Power Trip draw from the sacred texts of classic hardcore, punk, and metal. After the success of their self-titled Lockin’ Out 7”, Power Trip has unleashed their debut LP MANIFEST DECIMATION, out now via Southern Lord Records.
Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags. Exodus, Leeway, Sepultura, and more, Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. Recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck, and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia, Manifest Decimation wages war on all in its earshot, with nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence. In the wake of their rabid live shows, images of impending doom and destruction have become synonymous with the name POWER TRIP.
