And Bio

For vocalist Ted Anderson, Sleeplord began in 2013 after guitarist Josh Pits heard his voice and knew he would never find that tone again. Ted was performing in another band called “Lick the Blade” and they had done a stint in Germany and were preparing for their slot at the famous BlizzCon held in California. A busy man with a family and a business he still accepted the challenge to get them “out of the coop”, literally, rehearsal was in an old chicken coop with carpet layered on the floor and random insulation stapled around…you could taste the heat and you could smell the damn cold!

So he began the arduous task of teaching his lyrics and melodies to the band but then difficulty with keeping solid players in the group increased culminating in Ted stepping down/getting fired/quitting or whatever anyone called it. He was now the lord of not really anything musical but his vocal chords. Understand this, the magnitude of Ted’s voice is the loss that the guitars, bass and drums felt every day while he was gone. After 3 months of going steadily sideways left and at a downward angle the pleading began for his reappearance and reluctantly he returned. Direction was temporarily grasped and they recorded the self-released version of “Levels of Perception”. A few gigs ensued when Cleveland agent Juan Ricardo of Pure Steel Records, headquartered in Germany, heard Ted singing with Sleeplord and soon negotiated the signing. Band members were still rotating through the group but the third bass player, Calvin Burgess, solidified his position and is the man on the contract and new cd. Calvin performed and abused himself with notable acts such as “Chemikill” and “Mystik”. Alas, the changeovers were not really over as they realized their drummer was not fitting their style but yet they had just signed with Pure Steel Records in January 2018 for a two disc contract…My oh my sounds like a band story doesn’t it kids?…Then in March 2018 Calvin and Ted went to see Michael Schenker shred Cleveland. It was there they met drummer Mick Ross, he auditioned. Took the job. Wrote new parts. They re-recorded. They re-emerged. They are soon to be releasing the new “Levels of Perception” on Pure Steel Records!!

Converse with anyone at the record plant who has heard Ted and they’ll tell you he’s the reason for the contract. After you listen to the band we know you’ll agree that players may come and players may go but it’s his voice that you’ll always know.

Own the disc and journey through their kingdom.
