Sleep Eater is the debut single from hard-hitting Sludge/Post-Metellars – WOVOKA who have released a stunning single that will speak volumes to fans of Isis, The Ocean and Neurosis. If your life is missing some brutal Sludge/Post-Metal riffs then this is the band for you.

As Sleep Eater is a brilliant single which has a dark and dangerous edge to it. This is an excellent introduction to this band as they have captured the raw essence of some truly emotional Post-Metal riffs. It's a 9 minute epic you will be playing over and over again.

The band are in their element when mixing the quiet post-rock ambient vibes with the delicate quiet dual vocals of Cody and Kyle. Wovoka are a band with a lot to say and 9 minutes is not enough. We need a full length album from these guys now. And I have heard it will be released over the Summer. I can't wait as this song could be the sign of great things to come from WOVOKA.

Wovoka have delivered some crunching brutal riffs that will leave you in a daze for a long time to come. Check this excellent track now as I have a feeling we will be hearing a lot more from these guys. Headover to BandCamp and download this track now. You won't regret it.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
