Since uploading their single "Gimme Chocolate!!", these Japanese teenagers immediately made their mark with their blend of Icon Pop and Heavy Metal. Generating over 5 million views, seemingly out of nowhere, the music press was forced to stand up and take notice, with premier rock publications like Kerrang! and Metal Hammer featuring the band, alongside mainstream outlets such as The Guardian and USA Today.

Sleep Token are a masked, anonymous collective of musicians (that may or may not be prolific artists from a variety of different projects); united by their worship of an ancient deity crudely dubbed "Sleep", since no modern tongue can properly express it's name. This being once held great power, bestowing ancient civilisations with the gift of dreams, and the curse of nightmares. Even today, though faded from prominence, 'Sleep' yet lurks in the subconscious minds of man, woman, and child alike. Fragments of beauty, horror, anguish, pain, happiness, joy, anger, disgust, and fear coalesce to create expansive, emotionally textured music that simultaneously embodies the darkest, and the brightest abstract thoughts. He has seen them. He has felt them. He is everywhere. Led by the perpetually tormented, supremely talented Vessel, creates music that brings to the fore our most submerged thoughts and feelings, coaxing them from the desolate, terrifying caves of our subconscious mind.
