It was released in November 1992 in Europe, and March 1993 in the USA through Earache Records Release and reception. Seriously, what’s there not to rave about the goose-stepping guitar lick and accompanying meaty bass line or subsequent stoic down picked notes which soon give way to a cranium jarring riff followed by a suitably mountainous return to form on opener “Dragonaut” (more than likely a glib wordplay on the 1972 Sabbath classic, “Supernaut” from Volume 4)? I'll never forget when, while suffering a negative cash flow, a hoity-toity used record shop employee in Montreal's hipster Plateau Mont-Royal borough scoffed and furrowed his nose as I regretfully proffered it for sale.

Also, while most heavy doom draws its appeal from slow, swampy brooders which eventually transpire into sped up halcyon moments, Sleep is a master at revving up the unsuspecting listener with fast cavalier riffs and fat, wonky bass lines prior to ruefully slamming on the brakes, thus attaining a zenith of a diametrically opposed sort; namely, a Zombie-like ziggurat of dredging incremental guitar riffs and concordantly poised drum beats such as at 04:43 of said “Evil Gypsy/Solomon’s Theme”. Compared to later Sleep albums I've heard, "Holy Mountain" initially comes across as the most commercially accessible which came as a surprise to me as I'd expected something inspired in equal parts by Black Sabbath and the Alejandro Jodorowsky movie of the same name as the album. "Dragonaut" is a good choice for the opening track because it starts off easy and gradually builds up into a bluesy, mid-paced song preparing you for the rest that's to follow. Unlike Kyuss, Monster Magnet, and Cathedral, Sleep holds back nothing.

You start off with plenty of purpose and seem to know where you want to end up, sometimes moving at a fast pace, then you wander confusedly around for nearly a quarter an hour, before finally slowing to a crawl as you return to outer space, first 'Inside the Sun' and finally finding yourself looking back at Earth 'From Beyond'. And Sleep says it with the guttural confidence of axe-wielding brutes, stoned and free to rule the riff-filled land. During the solos especially is when the album has a bit of some focus issues, as my mind can never quite lock onto which instrument to pay attention to, but I suppose it's a great release of tension when the solo ends and the instruments come back together on the same lick, or at least a simpler jam.

Incluye: 1- Lamina de arraglas (proteccion frontal). [Zzzzzz...], As someone who is both a fan and musician in the doom metal scene, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people critique a given band with a dismissive “that sounds like Sabbath.” Iommi and friends are obviously the most influential band in heavy metal history and there are plenty of stoner groups that contribute nothing but “Hole in the Sky” rewrites, but such assertions always feel like superficial tags applied to any hard rock that is vaguely slow and groovy. All of these songs are lyrically fantastic, traversing mythic realms of infinity and outer space until you are incinerated “Inside the Sun.” The guitar of Matt Pike has low end crunch to be fucking reckoned with, and Sleep’s pentatonic and heaving blues riffology tends to have a hypnotic effect upon the unsuspecting listener. His bass takes the fore too, harnessing and creating a mighty tension before the riffs kick back in. They never quite went back to doom the same way Sleep did, but to take away that ingredient from the formula is stealing a hammer from Matt Pike's toolbox. I think part of the reason people enjoy "Sleep's Holy Mountain" (besides pot) is for the amateur appeal. This has the effect of drawing listeners further into the science fantasy world the lyrics conjure up. He proves to be surprisingly adaptable as “Dragonaut” features his signature chanting tenor, while other tracks like “Evil Gypsy/Solomon’s Theme” put in a harsher bellow. “Holy Mountain” It can actually get pretty annoying. Chris Hakius, with his signature style(the hypnotic cymbal-banging), is solid as ever. He'd be one of the very few people who I consider to do both clean and non clean vocals wonderfully and not make me want to chuck Iron Maiden vinyls at him. Now if we could just get that long-awaited fourth album sometime soon, that’d be swell… I absolutely love the riffs that Matt Pike has created, very memorable and awesome. Matt Pike of course is the driving force again with this three piece, at once ultra heavy and spacey. hmm. The direct descendants of an older form of metal that predated NWOBHM all the way back to Black Sabbath. "Evil Gypsy / Solomon's Theme" plunges quite deeply in an experimental / improvisational direction as the song takes unexpected detours into bursts of spontaneous instrumental jamming, lead guitar running riot, the drummer playing his heart out on his tom-toms and everyone just going for broke in the space of seven minutes.

All told, as much as I appreciate the deep reverential bow to Sabbath, what I dig most about Sleep is the way it fervently brews alternating tempos; in other words, the trio see-saws back and forth between heady maverick build-ups, barreling rhino charging riffs and frenzied “Rat Salad” style drum solos such as on the seven minute “Evil Gypsy/Solomon’s Theme” dirge which by the way is far from the longest track (that would be the Lovecraftian “From Beyond” at 10.5 minutes). I’d even hazard to say, at 02:18 following a pregnant pause the track gleefully breaks out into a late “Electric Funeral” sounding jam which feels like a forgotten studio session from the quintessential Paranoid.

Aquarian 18:2906. “Some Grass” is just a fun diddly separating the two titans that are “Evil Gypsy/Solomon’s Theme” and “Aquarian,” the latter finding you “trapped in a world under leagues of ocean.” There is truly no better lyric that could describe the weight of the riffage found in this bludgeoning, bong-ripping beast. Identifiers: Barcode: 7 45316 00792 5 I’d even hazard to say, at 02:18 following a pregnant pause the track gleefully breaks out into a late “Electric Funeral” sounding jam which feels like a forgotten studio session from the quintessential Paranoid.

Sleep's Holy Mountain (also known as Holy Mountain) is the second studio album by the American band Sleep. The bass wobbles all over. The Druid 05:4303. If anything, Sleep’s Holy Mountain is not only a doom lover’s wet dream but also a cornerstone of the genre where it all started for this heavy metal narcoleptic. The chemistry between Matt Pike's incredibly heavy and bluesy guitar riffs, Al Cisnero's flamboyant basslines and Chris Hakius' hypnotic drumwork is amazing and gives the music a very magical feel to it, and despite the heaviness, it's a very easy listen. As with the musicians' later projects High on Fire and Om, there is plenty of loose jam-like freeplay and lost song structures, although Sleep were arguably the most unpredictable beast of the three.

Editors’ Notes A paragon of stoner-rock perfection, Sleep’s Holy Mountain epitomizes the gloriously lumbering swing first accessed in Black Sabbath’s “Hole in the Sky” and makes it slower, funkier, and meaner. There are no concessions whatsoever on this record. California’s Sleep were to prove to be just as out of their time as any doom metal band at work in the early 1990s. Better to use it as ending credits than the bulk of your album I suppose. It sounds as if Mike Pike grew up listening to and playing Sabbath songs, got stoned one day, jammed with his band, and this was the result. Stoner metal is a sub-sub genre that doesn't get me super excited, but this album has plenty of entertainment value to go around. When you feel yourself starting to freak out, a piercing screaming erupts from behind the rolling boulder that symbolizes Al Cisneros's bass; that screaming is Matt Pike setting fire to his guitar, smashing it into a million pieces, and throwing it up into space so that starlight catches the shards, sending dazzling rays all over the place and sending you into a confused frenzy. Furthermore, the proto-metal “Into the Sun” constitutes yet another marble rattling mind-bender as it surely feels like a cosmic eon spanning concubine to “Into the Void”. This band and its music are the embodiment of the ancient sacrament and its holy ritual of divination of the imagination. Frequently throughout the album I'll hear a bit of a Sabbath song, causing my mind to instantly expect the rest of that song, but instead something different happens.

Take for instance 'Aquarian'. At last, you find that you could go on crawling for much longer than you expected, since the motion is pleasing and tickles your body a little, especially the low, crushing notes that boom out with each movement... There must have been some serious pot-smoking going on during the process of writing the music. https://youtu.be/uD9q3IGfloU. I mean “Dragonaut,” this album’s opener and the band’s best known song, is basically the verse riff from “Lord of This World” and the opening riff from “A National Acrobat” glued together and bookended by a bunch of aimless lead guitar and bass wah.

Editors' Notes Sleep cut ties with their sludge past and dove into neo-Sabbath doom and stoner metal on their landmark album, Sleep’s Holy Mountain.The power trio’s lumbering chugs wander through prehistoric landscapes covered in mountains of fuzz and whirling vocal effects (“Dragonaut”) and continue into shadowy nether realms wherein monk-like chants ride … You can hear every note of Matt Pike's sludgy riffs and ringing solos but also catch Al Cisnero's bass underscoring all, moving in deft counterpoint and harmony. Most of you will probably already know this piece of music very well.
