First Review Of "Altrusian Moon"

I was just informed of a review of our latest release "Altrusian Moon" done by a very nice chap who goes by the pleasant name of Dr. Doom. You want to hear what he says? Visit Dr. Dooms Lair to get his take on this Bandcamp digital release of ours.

Early Video Of "Altrusia" From 2006

So I dug up some video of an early version of "The Fall Of Altrusia" played to an almost full house at Vnuk's Lounge in Cudahy, WI on 1/28/06. I guess this is to celebrate the six year anniversary of our debut of this doom epic. It's gone through many changes since then, that's for sure. Can you hear the differences?

You can increase the screen size if you right-click on the video.

From The Minds Of Madness

From The Minds of Madness: The Origins of Heavy Metal Band Names is now available! Sleestak was asked awhile back to participate with the story of how we chose our name and Blair Gibson was kind enough to include us in this amazing book.

New Album "Altrusian Moon" Available Now

Image
Sleestak is kicking off the new year with a new release called "Altrusian Moon - A Lo-Fi Collection Of Psychedelia and Space Rock". Yes, we know: we didn't warn you.

It is available at Bandcamp and is a "pay what you want" digital album - you can pay $0 or be as generous as you wish. We dug deep into our rehearsal archives to give our fans a glimpse into our relaxed free-form jams, a very psychedelic improvised musical exploration of song ideas. Yes, there are mistakes, missed drum hits, wrong notes, etc. but the journey is there - a raw yet sublime document of our times playing together in the basement over the years. Also included is the live remix jam version of "The Fall Of Altrusia" from 2009. You'll hear some of our wider influences in this material and may appeal to fans of Bardo Pond, Hawkwind, USX, Red Sparowes, Dead Meadow, White Hills, and Yawning Man.

If you dig it, please consider purchasing the download as we start gather…
