Formed in 2008 in Denver Colorado, Black Sleep of Kali started as an idea when guitar player/vocalist Taylor Williams moved to Denver from Salt Lake City, Utah. Black Sleep Of Kali didn’t take off until Morgan Carpenter (Bosnia) replied to the ad. Carpenter liked what he heard, called his old friend Austin Michel to come play bass and he contacted his friend Gordon Koch to play drums.
In late 2008, Black Sleep of Kali traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, to record a Demo EP with Andy Paterson (Iota, Ascend). Five songs were recorded and self-released to very positive reviews. Shortly after recording the EP, Carpenter decided he wanted to pursue a different musical path and left the band. Gordon’s old friend, and friend of the band, Patrick Alberts, stepped in to fill Carpenters’ shoes on guitar.
In March 2010, Black Sleep Of Kali once again headed to Salt Lake City to record with Andy Paterson. Eight songs were recorded in a blur of five long, hard, frustrating days, but the band emerged confident with its Small Stone debut. The album titled Our Slow Decay is a record full of huge riffs, catchy vocals, and furious drumming that is sure to leave its mark on the doom\metal genre. Look for the debut full length from Black Sleep Of Kali, Our Slow Decay, released on August 24th, 2010.
