Sleep Token’s London show just proved why they’re the most exciting band in metal right now

Metal Hammer

If you told us ten years ago that there would be a new masked band on the scene that were successfully converting metalheads into fans of catchy, pop-friendly music, we’d have either scoffed at you or simply reminded you of the existence of Ghost. Sleep Token, while sounding nothing like the Satanic Swedes, have certainly planted their flag into a similar idea of defiant metal that finds its power in the most unlikely of places. 

Although heavy music with pop hooks is certainly not a new thing, Sleep Token are dissolving the boundaries of the genre divide with a greater force than anyone before. And, as they welcomed in the new year with a surprise smattering of immediately-loved singles that embraced everything from hip-hop to prog-metal, Vessel and his band once again proved that their radical formula works. When those songs are debuted in a live setting tonight at Hammersmith’s Apollo, they highlight exactly what modern metal has been waiting for.
