Raleigh’s Vacant Company suggests Sleep, had the stoner-metal titans downed some strong uppers, too. The huge riffs on last year’s Blok lumber and rumble, somehow as mighty and imposing as they are cozy and comforting. Near-hardcore breakdowns and serrated hooks break up these patient grooves, presenting contrasting elements in a way that only reinforces their individual power.
