Sleep

The heavyweights of heavy are lumbering through the Alamo City as part of a nine-date mini-tour. Since reuniting in 2009 and periodically taking its punishing live show on the road, Sleep has maintained the rep it seized in the ’90s as the ultimate stoner rock band. And the trio’s new LP, The Sciences, aptly dropped on 4/20, continues to mine the low-and-slow, Sabbath-inspired aesthetic that guided its earlier work. No, The Sciences isn’t a groundbreaker on the level of the 63-minute single-song epic Dopesmoker, but the band’s writing is more focused and nuanced than ever before. Guitarist Matt Pike and bassist George Cisneros seem to have gained both fury and insight from their respective years helming the blazing High on Fire and the spacy, droning Om. Whether the dudes focus on the new record or take a deep pull from their early catalog for their S.A. date, the effect will be the same. A live Sleep show is a physical affair — the riffs hypnotize while sheer volume shakes your meat
