Sleeping Village Reviews Creator Ian Corse

Sleeping Village Reviews

In 2018, Ian Corse decided to create an Instagram account so he could bring the world of heavy music a fresh take on reviews. As it turns out, it’s what the people wanted. The account was successful enough to merit the formation of a website later that year. Ian has also brought on a whole host of writers to keep the content flowing.

What’s unique about Sleeping Village Reviews is that it’s not just heavy metal, but all things heavy. You’ll find reviews from genres across the entire spectrum. The only requirement is that the author deems the music “heavy” in some way. What does “heavy” mean? Well that’s entirely up to the author. Sleeping Village Reviews features music from nauseating grindcore to psychedelic shoegaze.
