It's on the split with fellow Germans Nachtmahr that Sun of the Sleepless really starts to set itself apart by way of some very overt electronic influences, especially after the Burzum track: Neunter November is kind of trip-hop, Spring '99 starts out triphoppy too but rises and falls in metalness (it's easily the best track off the split) and Tausend Kalte Winter is a piece of pure industrial. Nachtmahr really play quite standard black metal, but it's not bad. They would be better represented on a split with another classic style band because the difference between the two is grating and to the latter band's detriment. But perhaps you may think otherwise.
