It’s Monday, Have A Banger Song To Get You Through It

I had never heard of the band Sleep Token until the past year or so, and their music was definitely not the type I usually listened to. However, there was something about their sound that was unique to me and I liked it.
Recently, they came out with a new song that is just unbelievably banger, and I wanted to share it with y’all.
This is by far their most interesting song I’ve heard, as it totally changes its vibe in the last two minutes. It’s like a completely different song towards the end, and I love it for that.
I’ve been listening to this song just about every day since it came out, and I’m still not sick of it. I hope you like it, too. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and have a great day!
If you like the progressive metal aspects, I can recommend the following two bands and albums:
Porcupine Tree: particularly “Anesthetize” off of Fear of a Blank Planet
Opeth: particularly the tracks The Drapery Falls or Blackwater Park off of the same-named album.
I love this song. I also really love Aqua Regia as well. Another genre switch but the piano is incredible.
If you dig songs that take left turns partway through (there must be a list of these somewhere), you should check out Hall & Oates “Everytime I Look at You” from Abandoned Luncheonette. I guarantee you will not see the end coming.
If you liked that song, you might also like The Offering, also by Sleep Token (doesn’t have a big swerve in it, but the overall feel might appeal)
Thanks for the song. I like it. Reminds me a bit of 30 Seconds to Mars.
My current obsession is a capella group VoicePlay. I started with their cover of Oogie Boogie’s Song (from The Nightmare Before Christmas), and their recent cover of Metallica’s nothing else matters was chef kiss!
Their bass, Geoff Castellucci, also does some incredible covers on his own. I recommend Sixteen Tons and Ghost Riders In The Sky.
