Oh, Sleeper

oh_sleeperOh, Sleeper is a Christian metalcore band from Ft. Worth, Texas. Their name is a reference to Ephesians 5:14 which reads, “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Formed in April 2006 after former member, Ryan Conley, of the short-lived rock band Terminal got together with former Evelynn and Between the Buried and Me guitarist Shane Blay and former Terminal bassist Lucas Starr (who was at the time with As Cities Burn). Eventually they found a vocalist in Micah Kinard and began practicing. As the 4 members began sledging through all the normal problems of a band start-up until they add James Erwin to the lineup, the band released an EP during this time titled The Armored March, through 1×1 music.

The band signed with Solid State Records in the summer of 2007. Their debut album, When I Am God, was released on October 23, 2007. They also supported Demon Hunter on their “Stronger Than Hell Tour” alongside Living Sacrifice, Advent, and The Famine. In 2009, they release a new album titled Son of the Morning. The album is a concept album based on the final battle between the devil and God.
