The Sciences, el retorno de Sleep luego de 15 años

Desde que se separaron en 1998, Sleep, la legendaria banda californiana de metal, siempre ha estado rodeada de misticismo y ovación. Esto se debe en buena parte a que su carrera musical ha sido un poco accidentada. Tras un par de discos en 1991 y 1992, en 1995 grabaron lo que sería su álbum más ambicioso: una canción de 52 minutos que básicamente desarrolla un solo riff en toda su duración. Por obvias razones esto no gustó a London Records (su disquera de ese entonces) que se rehusaron a lanzar el disco en esas condiciones y la banda se negó a editarlo, lo cual llevó eventualmente a que la banda se separe por el desgaste invertido. Del disco quedaron varias versiones y algunas de ellas fueron lanzadas póstumamente bajo diferentes disqueras y nombres, primero como Jerusalem (Rise Above/Music Cartel Records)  en 1999 y luego como Dopesmoker (Tee Pee Records) en 2003. Esta última sería la versión definitiva.

Al día de hoy Sleep es conocida por ser una de las bandas emblemáticas del género, su nombre es sinónimo de lo que se conoce como stoner metal, un tipo de rock pesado, repetitivo y pausado, fuertemente influenciado por el rock psicodélico y los usos y efectos de la marihuana. Sleep llevó este sonido al extremo con su álbum Dopesmoker hace quince años y ahora han vuelto con un nuevo disco, The Sciences. Si bien sus miembros nunca dejaron de hacer música -Al Cisneros formó Om y Matt Pike High On Fire-, no muchos tenían en su radar que Sleep sacaría un disco tan pronto y sin previo aviso.

The Sciences se lanzó este 20 de abril (día mundial de la marihuana) con el sello de Jack White, Third Man Records, e incluye 6 temas nuevos (con excepción de “Sonic Titan” que ya se conocía una versión en vivo). Su sonido sigue intacto en términos de calidad y tiene la marca registrada de Sleep, el sonido denso y saturado de la guitarra (Matt Pike), bajo (Al Cisneros) y batería (Jason Roeder, de Neurosis) que crean una pared impenetrable de distorsión. Las canciones pagan tributo de manera explícita a Black Sabbath, sobre todo a Tony Iommi y Geezer Butler, los responsables históricos de este sonido.

Como en sus trabajos anteriores, este también juega con la repetición, que si bien para algunos puede ser un aspecto negativo, Sleep lo convierte en su fuerte. Es el factor clave para entender su música, la repetición hace que entres en un estado de hipnosis que te envuelve y solo cobra sentido a medida que lo sigues escuchando.

The Sciences es todo lo que queremos y esperamos de Sleep, pero sin sentirse fechado en ningún sentido, probablemente debido a todo el tiempo que se ha hecho esperar y las influencias que ha incorporado de los demás proyectos de sus integrantes. A pesar de cargar con el peso de su legado, The Sciences logra absolutamente todo lo que se propone.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.

    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    I think what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, think on this, what if you were to write a awesome
    post title? I am not saying your content is not solid.,
    however what if you added a post title to possibly get folk’s attention? I
    mean The Sciences, el retorno de Sleep luego de 15 años – Punto y Coma is a little vanilla.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post
    headlines to get people to click. You might
    add a related video or a pic or two to grab
    readers excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion,
    it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?|
