I was actually close to building a slumber playlist right before it happened. I find certain albums to be unbelievably relaxing and help me drift off into sleep. Perhaps counter-intuitively, all of those albums are metal. A few off the top of my head-

Morbid Angel - Gateways to Annihilation
Sadus - Swallowed in Black
Pestilence - Malleus Maleficarum
Suffocation - Breeding the Spawn
Watchtower - Energetic Disassembly
Monstrosity - Imperial Doom
Destruction - Release from Agony
Megadeth - Peace Sells
Sepultura - Arise
Sacrifice - Forward to Termination
Morbid Saint - Spectrum of Death

I find that albums with a dark production work best, but those with an atmospheric production also work well, as do those with a lot of mid-paced songs.

I'm with you on pretty much all of those. Though my all time favorite lullaby band is Opeth. Dunno why, I love their music. There's just something soothing and relaxing about it.
Then again, I'm blessed with this wonderful ability to basically lie down, decide "Sleep" and turn off like flipping a power switch.
Listening to Cannibal Corpse and cutting trees with a chainsaw, now that's metal
