Review by Modrigue
4 stars Nightmarish psychedelia

Although released in 1999, "The Sleeping Sickness" was initially recorded in 1996 with guitarist Scott Ayers from band WALKING TIMEBOMBS. Therefore, the style is very close to SUBARACHNOID SPACE's debut album, "Delicate Membrane": somber psych'n'roll improvisations, however with better sound quality and inspiration. As you may have noticed, the tracks names are just variations of the album title.

After the short ambient "Introduction", the descent into darkness with "The sleeping sickness I". The atmosphere is even more tortuous with the whirlwinds of "The sickness sleeps". The ambient "Sick and sleeping" is like a black hole aspirating the listener. Its intensity increases until becoming chaotic and calm again. "No sleep for the sick" is an efficient heavy aggressive space rock, while the title track displays a deserted land, its big beat rhythm representing the bomber. "The sleeping sickness II" sounds like a monster being tortured. Uneven, but the trippy guitar sonorities sometimes resemble the middle part of PINK FLOYD's "One of These Days". "(Hmmm)" is in fact only 2 minutes long, as the first 20 minutes are empty, which was a common practice in 90's studio releases. Anyway, this short conclusion is rather anecdotal.

As its predecessor, "The Sleeping Sickness" is a long journey into unknown depths, in the search of a cursed creature. Very recommended to dark psychedelic rock fans, but not just before going to sleep...
