Even though I do enjoy symphonic power metal from time to time, I'm quite picky when it comes to vocals in that particular genre.
Here, no vocals, no problem. 😁
You end up with a very well-written and technically proficient album that takes you on a journey. Perfect to close off a day spent listening to more extreme stuff. 👍

I never cared about symphonic metal at all. I do very much care about folk as well as progressive metal, and so I couldn't resist after reading the third exceptional AMG review for Wilderun in a row. 'Sleep...' has been on my radar for quite some time, being graced by one of the most beckoning cover arts I have ever seen. The band more than lives up to its reputation, composing great musical pieces from start to finish. I absolutely love the multitude of influences being put together here. David Fischer

The songs are masterfully composed and flow together beautifully, and the orchestration is exactly how I want metal orchestration to sound: full, playable by a real orchestra, and just as important to the music as the vocals, drums, guitar, and bass are. tonycordeshimself
