OM was formed by Al Cisneros (bass/vocals) and Chris Hakius (drums), both founding members of legendary doom pioneers Sleep. They recorded their debut album Variations on a Theme in 2004. The album was an instant success; heralded as a triumphant return by Mr. Cisneros who had not made any music publicly for many years. The underground popularity of the band lead to exclusive live engagements in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. OM spent the fall of 2005 recording their new album - Conference of the Birds. Comprised of two songs that build on OM’s use of cyclical rhythm, riff and vocal intonation, the duo’s new album blends metal, chant, drone, dub and psychedelia. The band’s lyrics expound upon the structure of the universe, potentiality and freedom from the physical body. Engineered by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Melvins) and produced by the band, Conference of the Birds progresses beyond their debut, Variations On a Theme with more fully-realized songwriting and production

inutile dire che jerusalem me lo inviarono gli stessi sleep il giorno stesso del suo concepimento.

io credo che tu , molto sempliemente, non abbia capito "conference of the birds". un disco godibilissimo ipnotico e malignamente accattivante, forse eri troppo impegnato in ascolti più impegnativi e compiacenti nel loro essere sempre e comunque avant.

se lo dice david tibet allora è LEGGE.
"AT Giza" è una degna erede di "Set the controls for the heart of the sun".
