From mountain peak to valley deep, Sleepwulf’s new album »Sunbeams Curl« is a journey that is dripping with the seductive sounds of riff rock psychedelic proto doom.

Conjuring the sounds of bands such as Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull, Sleepwulf have summoned an album that oozes with fuzzy riffs, sordid tales and seductive occultism.

If the first album was about cycles, this one is about breaking them and its consequences.
»Sunbeams Curl« delves further into the well of ancient mysticism, alchemy and the occult. The underlying thread connecting it all, is the power of words to manifest reality; in both the individual and the collective consciousness.

This extends to the album artwork, with hidden optics and codes. Deciphering these will reap their own rewards.

The album was recorded live in their own woodland studio outside Kristianstad, Sweden.
To capture a live organic sound everything was done live onto an old tape machine.
This new album is both heavier and more dynamic, building upon every aspect of the last.
This is an album with hidden secrets which will unravel in the not too distant future.

Sleepwulf’s debut album is a bonfire of vintage 70s proto doom sounds that recently set fire to the underground rock scene, managing to gain a #3 spot on the cuvited Doom Charts.

Inspired heavily from the work of renowned occultist John Dee, this album attempts to rekindle his vision of a united cosmos. From the stars to atoms and back again, every aspect of the album is rooted in these core principles. These themes also seep into the back cover artwork which was cut from a single piece of paper, with each image representing a song on the album.

To keep the authentic retro vibe, the album was self-recorded live on tape in their practice room. “It was a journey to capture the sound we were hearing when we jammed together but after a lot of trial and error, we got there in the end.”

The cover art was drawn in the late 70s by the singer’s father and left undiscovered in a cupboard for 40 years until shortly before the album was finished.

This is an album of cycles and connection, which endeavors to bring the sounds of old into the burning sun once again.
