Fiction Makes The Future

Fiction Makes The Future by Sleep Maps
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Sleep Maps
This New York space-metal act tours as a quartet, but the five mind-expanding tracks on its private-press debut were made entirely by Ben Kaplan. He sets up momentously shifting walls of guitars and synths, propelling toward Mars over an incessant drum pulse. The density thickens from Hawkwind to heavy doom, but in tradition of early '90s Swiss visionaries Bloodstar, the swooshing minor-key beauty somehow yields a sense of hope. Good thing, given the generally pessimistic spoken predictions sampled from decades of uncredited sci-fi futurists, such as Arthur C. Clarke in "The Eternal Wanderer."
