"When legendary stoners Sleep were put to bed back in 1998, the three members would go on to chart very different trajectories. Matt Pike embraced his grizzled metal roots with the marvellously heavy High on Fire while rhythm section Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius took what might be considered a loftier path by exploring Sleep's deeply meditative aspects with experimental outfit Om.




"While 2009’s God Is Good made use of cello, flute and tambura, these were generally used as subtle markers. With Advaitic Songs, however, such adornments have become an integral part of the album’s sound. It’s not until State of Non-Return that Cisneros’ mantra-like incantations and legendary writhing basslines make appearances, and by that time they come almost as a rude incursion, lending the track a turbulent air that initially seems incongruous with the mesmerising calm that led you there. With a few more listens, however, their presence makes perfect sense, seeming as natural as the vast expanses conjured by Sinai or the long desert march and immersive chants of Haqq-al Yaqin."




"The results are strange, hypnotic and utterly transcendental, capable of being linked spiritually – if not stylistically – with other fringe-dwelling artists like Earth, Arbouretum and Daniel Higgs. Lyrical themes are so oblique and obtuse as to be largely impenetrable – exactly what Cisneros is on about is, frankly, anyone’s guess. But it should be said that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. After all, Om’s teachings have always been less about finding a goal than the overwhelming richness of the journey, and, with Advaitic Songs that journey is more glorious and all-consuming than ever before."

Conference of the Birds (CD)

Label: Holy Mountain   Origin: USA
Where the previous album, Variations on a Theme, opened with a squeal of feedback and overdriven bass, this album opens with relative calm… a deceptively simple rhythm at minor volume, and vocals that gently seep through the veil. This change in tone alone proves that simply being “heavy” is not necessary, and that the lyrical essence carries much more weight. The overall experience is similar to what one may find in the company of monks intoning sacred verses...

God is Good (CD)

Label: Drag City   Origin: USA
OM's lyrical focus has been on spirituality, and based on the album and song titles, God Is Good is no exception. Musically it can be seen as a like-minded rebirth. The core of what makes OM OM hasn't changed with the new line-up, but the band has a new identity and a broader sound.

Pilgrimage (CD)

Label: Southern Lord   Origin: USA
One of the finer songs in Om's relatively short catalog is “At Giza,” the lead track from their 2005 album Conference of the Birds. “At Giza” built upon the band's doom-drone by scaling back on the distortion and emphasizing their spiritual, chant-like nature. They made more with less. Pilgrimage, their third album, as a whole is very much the successor to that song. One of Om's strengths is the way they can lock into grooves that can stretch out ad in...

Variations on a Theme (CD)

Label: Holy Mountain   Origin: USA
The triumphant return of Chris Hakius and Al Cisneros of Sleep!! Variations on a Theme picks up where Jerusalem/Dopesmoker left off – with lengthy, sprawling epics that border on drone yet have considerable heft and muscle. Since they’re operating without a guitar player, Om’s three songs are nothing but a low-end rumble. Hakius’ and Cisneros’ work on Variations on a Theme is impressive, especially the drumming.
