Female Voice Metal Fest: An evening with exclusively female vocals!
We are vhappy to be part of the first Female Voice Metal Fest in Trier.
From tender to hard, from fragile to brutal, the three frontwomen will offer the whole range of emotions on this evening and enchant the Kasino am Kornmarkt in their very own way.
PENTASTONE from Darmstadt are often compared with the mighty JINJER and don’t need to shy away from this comparison. They play Alternative Metal and transport a lot of femininity with their music with their mixture of Metal, Alternative and Rock, especially through the variable voice of their singer Louisa. Femininity not as a subject, but as a means of contrast, which works through themes such as anger, grief, agony and death. PENTASTONE will captivate the casino with their magic right from the start. So early attendance is mandatory!
SLEEPERS’ GUILT from Luxembourg are a known quantity. With their Progressive Melodic Death Metal they have already rocked big stages like the one at Metal Days. The combo, often reminiscent of LAMB OF GOD, brings sweat to your forehead with their fast, melodic sound and the catchy songs, which are performed by singer Sanya with a brutal voice, leave no one cold.
Headliner of the first “Female Voice Metal Fest” will be THE TEX AVERY SYNDROME from Frankfurt am Main. They play Modern Metal and have already been on tour with well-known giants of the scene, such as JINJER. And also as headliners they exude pure dominance with their cracking, furious and driving mix of metal, hardcore, beatdown and deathcore. Singer Laura will tear the casino to pieces with her brute voice and bring violence and destruction over Trier!
Be there or be dead! Get your tickets today at the VVK!
Tickets are available at Ticket Regional and Eventim.

It comes with great pleasure that I’m finally able to tell you that my first ever book, “The Tides of Fate – An Exordia Novella” is, after some extra rounds of editing as well as some unexpected twists and turns, published. Take a look at the finished product:
The blurb for the story that inspired the last three songs on our upcoming album “What Remained” goes something like this:
The domed city of Exordia has existed for over a thousand years, being home and shelter to the last survivors of humanity in an otherwise uninhabitable world.
Josten is desperate. After losing his son Lero, who was banished from the city as punishment for a crime, and his wife Sofia for following a perilous hidden agenda, he made his choice. Clinging to the last vestige of hope that Lero might have survived in the Outside World, he decides to make his last stand…
Suppose you consider yourself someone interested in reading post-apocalyptic fiction, and this blurb sparked your interest. In that case, you can find the paperback version and the ebook format of it on Amazon.
The paperback will also be available at our merch booth on our release show for the album on June 3rd at Rockhal Luxembourg.
In the case, you’ll read it, feel free to leave a rating or even a review on Amazon and/ or Goodreads. Even if it is only one sentence, it will help an aspiring writer a great deal.
Check out the teaser for our new video for the second single “Pyre” from our upcoming album “What Remained”. Premiere will be on May 26th at 18:00 (GMT+2).

Our past year in brief and welcome Sany
The last year has been a tough one for most of us. Everyone of us had and will have to deal with the ramifications of the pandemic in their own ways. And we’re all waiting to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. In the following post I want to shed some light on the ongoings in the band during the past year. Although one could deem we had been inactive for the last thirteen months, we had been more productive than one might think (there actually had been phases of inertia, though).
Let’s start by going back to april 2020, when the first in a series of events occurred: our long time vocalist Schaul decided to leave the band. Luxembourg was in its first lockdown, the band put to a forced break. We had some line up changes in the past but, to be honest, it just doesn’t get easier by time. There was no bad blood involved and still every one of us is on good terms with Schaul. We had to figure out what to do. We knew it would be hard to find a new vocalist, but knowing that the band was put on hold and there wouldn’t be concerts for an unknown period of time, we decided to take our time with the search for a new voice.
Besides the task of finding a new vocalist, we had a fully recorded pre-production of our upcoming album. During that time, the definite recording had been on our schedule…and had to be rescheduled several times.
Fast forward to fall 2020. We somehow managed to record the whole thing and even a bunch more songs. Only thing missing were still the vocals. It had been around that time period, when someone contacted us, asking if we were still looking for a vocalist. We were. She goes by the name Sany. After a few zoom meetings and some file sharing of vocal ideas for the songs, we knew that we wanted to work with her. Things just wouldn’t get easier as she lives a two and a half hour drive away from us in Germany and the pandemic was still a thing. So we had to keep waiting for the opportunity to work together, presumably gathered in one physical space. We had to endure a couple more months before this could happen.
Skipping over an uneventful winter, in march 2021 we finally got to meet each other in person with Sany and we took a whole weekend for rehearsing and getting to know each other better. The chemistry was there, we felt like a complete band again the first time in ages. The energy was there and playing together felt so right.
It was the last weekend (17th april), when Sany recorded the vocals for the first four songs of our upcoming album and I can tell you, it feels good to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel after all, knowing that we’re wrapping up the album production sooner rather than later. Nonetheless, we still have no release date for the album. As we want to do a proper release show and not some half-assed online release, we still have to wait a little longer to pick up a date.
To sum things up, it was not the easiest year for us. But, with Sany on the mic, tons of new music we can’t wait to get out there, we’re finally feeling a sense of progress, like we’re back on track again. And for everyone out there who might have asked the question. Yes, we’re still here and pretty much alive 🙂
New Vocalist wanted!
First of all we wanna thank you for all the uplifting comments towards both sides regarding Schaul‘s departure from the band! It reflects our very own attitude towards the situatioun as there are no hard feelings at all!
We never stuck our heads in the sand and we are more than ready to record some of the best material we ever wrote.
We hereby launch the search for our new vocalist.
Contact us at email@example.com
Thank you, Schaul!
Folks, we have news for you. Schaul has decided to part ways with the band.
Here‘s what he wants to tell you:
Dear SG fan community,
I hereby announce with a heavy heart that in the future I will no longer stand behind the microphone for SG for personal reasons.
This was a difficult decision that I have struggled with for some time already.
The production for the new album is going well and I am sure that Chris, Phil, Marc and Ben will find a worthy replacement who will take the band to the next level.
I am grateful for the past 7 years in which I have been able to fulfill a lot of dreams, such as performing with bands like Amon Amarth or performing at international festivals like Metaldays.
In any case, I would like to thank all SG members who have played in the band during this time, Max, Manu, Jim, Jeff, Ben, Marc, Chris and Phil, for this incredible journey.
Look forward to the new album and continue to support SG as you have done so far!
We will definitely see each other again at one or the other concert, festival or anywhere else.
We wish him all the best for all the future endeavors he will encounter. We thank him for all that he provided to the band during the past seven years.
Music in times of confinement
Like so many other musicians these days, we try to process the ongoing events into something positive, in our case, creative output.
From this week on, we release, in a spontaneous manner, more or less finished songs that are written in our times of confinement.
If you feel the itch to contribute something to the ideas, be it vocals, guitar- or even toilet seat solos, feel free to get in touch with us.
If not, you can simply listen to some brand new music.
Those songs are not intended to appear on a later Sleepers‘ Guilt album. All the ideas will be collected on our bandcamp page.
First song idea comes from Chris, who worked together with Phil on this one for the past few days. This song has no vocals nor real drums, so, if it calls to you, get in touch with us. Collaboration in any form is good in these days of isolation.
Enjoy the first song with the oh so creative title Solitude!
