Despite its formation in 1998, “To the Elements” is Sun Of The Sleepless’ full-length debut, following its split EP with Nachtmahr (2004), the band’s debut EP “Poems to the Wretches Hearts” (1999) and the 7″ “Tausend Kalte Winter” released in 2000, which featured a trip hop take on the Darkthrone classic “En As I Dype Skogen.”
Now, 13 years later, Sun Of The Sleepless offers an album of brand new material. Note that the album will be out as a 2CD boxset (with 3 extra bonus tracks) and as a vinyl album, all available here.
At the same time as Sun Of The Sleepless’ first full-length album, the vinyl compilation “Shadows Of The Past” will be released on black and strictly limited gold vinyl – and available now for ordering. “Shadows Of The Past” features all Sun Of The Sleepless recordings from the period 1998-2004 – “Poems To The Wretches Hearts” (1999), “Tausend Kalte Winter” (2000) as well as the tracks of the split EP with Nachtmahr (2004) – which have been remastered especially for this release.
Below is already an excerpt of “Phoenix Rise”, a song featured on the Sun Of The Sleepless’ Album “To The Elements”. This is a rough mix straight from the studio but it gives you an idea.
