Very 80s/90s somehow tastes of DragonForce, Lordi and even Motley Crue in some riffs – they’re somehow hair metallie, yet on the radio side of alternative rock, somewhere.
All I Want
Slow, tweaky intro. A real late 80s/early 90s feel on this one for me – the almost choral choruses and regular rhythm perhaps. A bit slow and deliberate for my taste – I don’t hate it, maybe ‘cause I like 80s/90s hair metal.
Nice hookie intro, and mean gax breaks. I like the quicker pace on this one, and there’s a bit more depth in this track which is good. Choice hookie gax, varied vox – wicked tweakie bits and intense keyboards backing the chorus. Favourite of the three, without a doubt.
Rock & Road
Solid riff to open – not too heavy but rocky enough to hook me in ... tasty headbanging bits here and there. Nice transitions between verse and chorus – enough to ‘see’ them coming as it were and get your head-banging stance together. More tweaky vox, very nice.
Screamin in the dark,
In Febraury 2004 the Iglesias brothers, Willy y Tommy, decided to form a Hard Rock band called Sleepin´Brains, a named that, ironically, was dreamt by Tommy. The two started recording their first songs in their bedrooms with almost no resources and a crappy sound amplifier. The search for band members that would join their quest had started, so they got in touch with Pilver, an old friend and drummer from their arcade childhood, who jump right into the proposed project. The live shows began.
The debut was at “La Colorada” on Septiember 3rd 2004, a significant show that fullfilled all expectations and had the great success of sold out tickets. Due to personal reasons, the drummer and friend Pilver decided to take a different path, and the band started searching for a replacement immediately to continue with the proyect.
A summer night of 2005 Sleepin’ Brains was a the bar El Escandinavo discussing their future sorrounded by cigarratte smoke and cold brews, when they met Gonzalo García Muñoz, “Gonzo”, the new drummer… After long rehearsals, they performed live shows on several ocassions and on full throttle on October 28th 2005 at Speed King, making the official announcement that Gonzo was the new member. In febraury 2006, with the new formation, they completed the recording of what first started as a dream at the studio Fuera del tunel. Right after, the lead voice and guitar player Willy Iglesias moved to the U.S. tomporarly, and the band was put on hold untill Agost that year. Live presentations where paused, the composition and recording of their second LP, Fun Fair Street, started at La Nave de Oseberg Studios. This new record was to include 10 new tracks fully compose by the Iglesias brothers, of which Killin’ Love, Fun Fair Street & Bad Girl stood out. After hard work, the band went back to the road and started playing live again, making their comeback in December 15, at Planet Music. This show was then follwed by their first tour on the Argentinian coast, playing with bands like Renacer, Horcas y Todos Tus Muertos. After the tour dates the band continued showing up live with big artists, such as Paul Di’ Anno (ex Iron – Maiden), Almafuerte and finally opening the Metal Fest 2008 at Estadio Pepsi Music (Ex- Obras).
