Abysmal Lullabies

"Abysmal Lullabies" is Arctic Sleep's second album. It is a solo effort written, performed, and produced entirely by founding member and multi-instrumentalist Keith D. This recording further demonstrates Arctic Sleep's signature sound of sluggish tempos, a super-heavy rythm section, down-tuned riffing, and whispery vocals all weaving a series of dynamics ranging from quiet, contemplative moments of introverted vulnerability to cosmic waves of absolute, monolithic loudness... all done with a keen sense for hooky melodies. With this release, the music reaches further beyond the constraints of any genre of heavy music, incorporating more acoustic arrangements, more psychedelic droning passages, and cello. As with Arctic Sleep's previous work, the lyrical themes continue to be rich with imagery of nature and space, all hazed with a looming atmosphere of sweet sorrow.
