OH SLEEPER
WHEN I AM GOD
SOLID STATE

Oh Sleeper is a Christian metal band whose Norma Jean meets Thrice stance manages to pound out 11 cuts of God-fearing tunes on the curiously titled WHEN I AM GOD. Seemingly on a Samaritan mission to bring metalheads happiness while throwing down breakneck breakdowns ("The Charlatans Host"), this Texas-based quintet are as heavy on the preachiness and they are on the double bass pedal on tracks like "We Are the Archers" and the screamo-esque "The Siren's Song", while the righteous chug of "Revelations in the Calm" atmospherically displays this group's alternative metal majesty. Rocking for God with odd time signatures and dissonant riffs galore, the metal glory Oh Sleeper demonstrates should sit well with those who worship a bit louder than the others.
