Nocturnal emissions, graveyard lullabies and unholy dreaming

Humans have a natural tendency to sleep. I, as a human, have spent a lot of my time sleeping. In my younger years I would often forsake this fact in favor of passing out, but I've grown fond of sleep in my later years. It's awesome, try it out.

I have an intense desire to soak as much as my life as I can in quality music. Often times my urge to sleep clashes with my desire to indulge in soundscapes.

This is where this thread comes in!

Sleepy Metal? Blasphemous torpor? Cacophonous comas? What ever noxious poison suits your needs, let us talk. Just be aware, you will not be sleeping your own sleep tonight!

Lately I have been enjoying....

Nortt - Gudsforladt

Unique despite its tried approach. You will need many, many torches for this dark descent...

Skepticism - Stormcrowfleet

The classic. I've been sleeping to this album for god damn forever. Ready to see colours you never knew existed?

I will be discussing more after work, man it's a lot later then I thought....


In the non metal spectrum I have been enjoying Barn Owl - The Conjurer and Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation - The Sexy Midnight Torture show.

haven't had any "nocturnal emissions" since my early pre teen days

as to sleeping to metal albums, or music in general...

Fripp & Eno - Eveningstar ~ Frippertonics ~ No Pussyfooting
Univers Zero - Heresie
Burzum - Hvis Lysett Tar Oss ~ Hjiloskalf
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - 25th Symphony ~ 40th Symphony
Morbid Angel - Illumnus Patronus
Some Japanese Dude - Chrono Trigger OST
King Crimson - Islands

would have to highly rec Enos work in general, man knows how to drone things out.

I miss the days when I used to drift off listening to music. I can't do it now because my ipod earphones are real cunts to sleep with and I dont have any small speakers.

I'm going to try it with Holst's The Planets. I'll definitely be awake for all of Mars, but maybe I'll nod off somewhere around Saturn, bringer of old age. 'Twould be fitting.

No, because that would mean I am transcending this dimension onto the fourth dimension.


As for sleeping with music, I can either listen to music with no vocals, i.e Moondog, or an instrumental band, or something that is something of a swirling mist of various sounds, such as Cold Body Radiation's music, or something like Monument's I.

Emissions is one I forgot, I enjoy that.

Speaking of indie metal, Fen's Malediction Fields and Kauan's Lumikuuro do decent work.

Holst is great for sleeping. Mars is a great journey.

I actually listen to most music laying down in darkness. My ritual if you will.

And I feel stupid for forgetting Ildjarn

Hardangervidda is the perfect album for drifting off, i find i tend to play the mp3's more than my lp for that exact reason.

Haha. Great word.

Go to sleep listening to Arditi, you'll have tremendous dreams. Other than that, I listen to a lot of Skepticism's 'Lead and Aether' going to sleep, or in dreary sleep-like states.

I slept to Hvis Lyset Tar Oss again last night. As usual, it was incredible. And the only thing that consistently works.

Otherwise it's usually Tenhi. Or The Middle East. Or Andy McKee. Sometimes some other stuff too.

Alloy is notable as well.

Have to rep both Necromantia albums, and Necromass' Abyss Calls Life. The melodies of the latter is like descending into an....abyss...that calls for your life.

If I really want to get to sleep quick, I play music I have zero interest in. A bout of modern thrash cures even the most harmful narcolepsy.

Falling asleep to Körkarlen, Ancestortooth and Munn create the most unreal dreams I've ever experienced.

One time about five years ago, I feel asleep listening to Ashes Against the Grain. It was probably the best sleep I had gotten in years prior to that. I tried it again the next night and it didn't work.

Falling asleep to music usually just doesn't work for me, but I might try it to Ludovico Einaudi tonight after seeing this thread.
