Recorded in an old hilltop villa in Álora, Spain, Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden, the long-awaited sophomore album of this unique Finnish band, sees the band venture into even richer, more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful soundscapes, complete with strings and horns… and hooves. Think of Lee Hazlewood getting drunk with the Abba girls in a Metal bar, slurring some of the most spine-chilling, (mostly) true tales of human tragedy and the occult ever heard in rock’n’roll, and you’ll arrive at the moss-covered gates of Poison Garden. It harkens back to the days when Rock albums were larger than life – deceivingly accessible but deviously deep, it is a trip through the dark recesses of Western history and psyche itself, of myths, bloody faery tales and forgotten archetypes, a treasure chest of nocturnal wonders and forbidden knowledge. The Sleep of Monsters – or SOM for short – released their debut album Produces Reasonin Finland in November 2013, entering the national Top 50. In November 2014, Svart Records licensed the album for the international underground, where it became a hot tip for those in the know, gathering rave reviews around the world. To celebrate its release, the band played Tavastia, Helsinki, in January 2015. When the band started their set with Ike performing the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, a violent electrical fire broke out in the shopping mall across the street. They promised not to do it again. SOM marks the return of vocalist and lyricist Ike Vil, the morose mastermind behind the lauded death rockers and occult rock pioneers Babylon Whores. Vil teamed up with guitarist and main songwriter Sami Hassinen, formerly the guitarist of Blake, drummer Pätkä Rantala, who played on HIM’s million-selling debut, and keyboardist Janne Immonen, who has toured extensively with Waltari and Ajattara. The sound of SOM is completed by the trippy guitar of Uula Korhonen and the thumping bass of Mäihä, who also handles backing vocals, and last but not least, by the witchy voices of their own “Furies”: Hanna Wendelin, Nelli Saarikoski and Tarja Leskinen.

Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden -- coming your way spring 2016. Dear Faniliars, We thank you for your support in 2015 and wish you happy holidays and happy New Year 2016. After finishing the album, we wasted most of this year wooing and butting heads with record industry Beelzebubs both great and small. Apparently music does not sell any more. Who cares. We're gonna get the album out to you next spring one way or another. Love, the Monsters.
