"Deek - blurb"

"Got the CD in the mail - not what I expected - but a REAL GOOD surprise!!! Very nice work!" -

"The Noise review"

"Sleep Runner's [sic] EP brand of metal is a both refined and powerful. These songs are slower paced yet huge and unrelenting. In a sense, the melodies of these songs are a bit more melodic in nature and not so much of a screaming contest. For that reason, I could see this disc appealing to both heavy rock and metal fans alike. Considering the swells of violins, funeral pianos, and harmonies, its clear to see that a lot of attention to detail was put into this disc...the music is both sophisticated and abrasive, especially on Sensory, which is the standout track to me."

"Jon/Emergenza review"

"Sleeprunner reminded me of an accessible version of Dream Theatre [sic] with a killer rhythm section." - Johnny the MusicNZ

"Vinny/Reflections review"

"They're [Sleeprunner is] more rock and progressive (as in actually progressive) influenced however, and give a heavier vibe with their sound. They also like to throw into the mix the odd combination of keyboard instrumentals. Needless to say they put on a great show." - Vinny

Sleeprunner is a Boston based original band, born in the late summer of 2005 by four friends, half of which related by blood, 3/4ths of which have played in four different bands with one of the others, from three areas in Massachusetts. Each member shares the same passion and respect for the music that we listen to and create. We've been influenced by every musician, band, artist, etc., be it good or bad, hard and heavy or soft and delicate, serious and urgent or comical and inexplicable. We attempt to translate our lives, experiences, thoughts, and emotions through a bunch of instruments, electronics, and microphones.

Where this would seem the time and place to woo you, the reader, with enticing metaphors and worn out adjectives about our music and us individually, we'd prefer to leave the thesaurus hunting duties to the press. Simply put, we may not be a band to judge in the first 5 seconds of a tune. Think of your favorite drama/suspense movie or television series. Most likely, you didn't judge it in the first few minutes, you had to see it all the way through to the end, and then watch it a few more times, or the next few episodes before it really grew on you. Think of Sleeprunner like that. Instead of listening to us while you vacuum the rug, put us in your car stereo for a long drive.
