Dopesmoker – Sleep (Black Vinyl)
The beast is back! The holy grail of many stoner rock and doom- Fans witness their resurrection on Greg Anderson's Southern Lord Label as a deluxe version with new artwork.
Sleep combined in their texts the consumption of marijuana and biblical themes, mixed with all kinds of borrowings from different mythologies. However, Al Cisneros' texts were ironically personalised instead of being taken seriously from the Bible or something like that. The main inspiration of the band was Black Sabbath.
The over one hour tour de force is now finally available again including bonus track 'Holy Mountain' Live in CA, 1994. Put these in your pipe & smoke em'! The band has recently reunited and played numerous, acclaimed shows!
D1 Holy Mountain (Live May 1994, I-Beam, San Francisco, Ca)
D2 Sonic Titan (Live April 1992, Gilman Street, Berkeley, Ca)
