It's good, and with a nice dose of Om in there too.
Ilham - 19.07.2014 at 00:02  
Let's not even talk about the artwork.
!J.O.O.E.! - 19.07.2014 at 00:03  
Ok: it's really nice.
Lokaeda - 19.07.2014 at 00:23  
A happy, I has.

Not very good artwork, I love the song itself, but the production could be a lot better. It's what I've been waiting for, so there.

Pretty damn good, I'm hearing a heavy Om element as well, which I'm not sure I'm alright with or not. Maybe it needs to sound more like Sleep, don't know entirely how I feel on that one. Overall pretty good track, and I like that "less is more" approach of the artwork.

Let me guess. You are a fan of the band.

Why don't you like the artwork? The sole fact it must have been done with an airbrush, or a very well done computer-generated airbrush effect, makes it look ten times better than what we are used to see. The colours are stunning as well.

Were Jerusalem and Dopesmoker not new material at the times of their releases? I like the song and art regardless.

Yeah surely that should say 10 years and not 20.

I don't like the artwork other than the stairs. Can't go wrong with stairs though.

Oh I have. But at the end of the day I look at them and say, I can forgive you, just minding your own business, sitting there. I still love you, stairs.

But to further explain my reasoning the artwork can't decide between being something totally abstract and cool or something totally recognizable and cool.

THEY WARNED ME BOUT STAIRS, DAWG. I MIND THE STAIRS.

I've never been a fan of Om, but I love Sleep. I'll listen to this later.

No what I meant was, it doesn't commit to being other of those things, and as a result doesn't look that cool.

I'm not that pretentious dumbshit whose gonna say I don't like something that I think looks cool

Haha. Ok. But everything doesn't have to be totally abstract or totally figurative. The in-betweens like this open up the image for interpretation and concepts . Please stop me.

Of course I love Sleep, it's a good song, so I said so, man. The artwork is pretty basic, abstract, but if you like that that's cool. I just love actual paintings and such like what Arik Roper has done with Sleep, High On Fire and so on. The colors are nice and the design is solid though as a former student of graphic design. I guess I would have just prefered a drawn album cover. It's kind of nice to look at after awhile. Maybe better than what we've seen for Electric Wizard's new cover.
Ocean Sage - 19.07.2014 at 03:11  
Wait a second, this is just the cover for the single, right? The actual upcoming album will have it's own artwork, yes? That's fine then. I guess this makes sense for a song called "The Clarity," like you're walking the staircase to wisdom, enlightenment or an epiphany of the truth.

Yep, that's how I see it. The album artwork should be in the same vein if they don't want to piss me off and have some regularity .

I saw a joke and chose to respond all sassy.
Looking at it some more, I think it's passable and at least it isn't ugly or horrible. (Looks at every power metal cover).

Yeah, there'll probably be a different album cover if other bands throughout history show anything. It may have similar motifs, but album cover tend to be somewhat different than their single counterparts. It'll probably be cool, I'm not worried.

P.S. If those two pictures in your profile are really you from a few years ago, you're lovely. (Not trying to be creepy)

I KNOW I KNOW it's just not for me, this particular piece. If I knew it was actually possible to stop you, I might try.

My god this is amazing. Loving that some of them sounds like Om.
3rdWorld - 19.07.2014 at 07:27  
Really good song, some parts of the riffs remind me of Dopesmoker.
Machiavelli - 19.07.2014 at 08:36  
I've been listening to so much stoner/doom/psychedelic shit lately with all the bands on bandcamp and shit, there is just mountains of it. The strange thing is that is really is a niche area of metal and there are few bands that can put together tours. We don't even have a local Stoner band here in Seattle that I like so I never go see stoner shows... which seems contrary to what one would expect. I thought this tune was good but nothing more. Good to see that these guys can still get together and create. I hope they are doing it for just that reason and not money.
Troy Killjoy - 19.07.2014 at 10:41  
Who cares why a band chooses to make music so long as it sounds good.

True, but with Sleep I'd like to think since it has been so long since last record that they have a lot to say musically, which just happens to coincide with their need of cash.

well Dopesmoker is basically an extended and rewritten version of Jerusalem, which makes it 15 years without releasing new music.

I quite enjoy the Om influence in this, really excited about this new album now. The artwork does look a little Saturday morning cartoonish though...

The music was recorded in '95 as a follow-up to Holy Mountain, the label freaked out and it sat unreleased for a long time. Jerusalem took the piece and just randomly cut it into six songs. It was released in '98. In '03 Tee Pee finally released the entire track, unmolested.

So both 10 and 20 are correct. Was recorded nearly 20 years ago. Last release was about 10, although it's just the full version of what had been released about 5 years prior. So 15 also works.

I would say 20 years is correct, because it's the last time they recorded/created new material.

True, and I knew that. but the thing is that it doesn't really matter when a song was written/recorded but when it was actually released because that's when people have the chance to listen to it.
Anyway, we're all right here and the main point is that Sleep have released new music and I'm very excited about the fact. It's a great song.
Neurozzy - 30.07.2014 at 21:55  
The lyrics are so outlandish, I love this song to bits.
Doom,Man - 04.08.2014 at 07:51  
Sounds like Om. The song doesn't do it for me so much upon first listen but I can't tell you how excited I am about the fact that it is new and that there is more on the way. PS I like Om, though.
