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 … Like I said earlier, they belong together. “Aquarian” : Digipak Label: Earache Records Format: CD Reviews: 12 reviews (avg. (R.I.P.) This was one of the rare cases where Earache pretty much released an album as is, allowing Billy Anderson's demo production to essentially become the album master. While you sleep, the dream seems to take you on a journey, though you feel as if you hardly move at all. They're all good. "The Druid" has a more hardcore punk influence which seems a bit strange for its subject matter but once the lyrics are out of the way the song is solid with a hard-hitting rhythm. Some of it calls to mind Kyuss, but without the iconic muddy trippiness. I really like the cover art on here, it's something that you can look at for a while without getting bored. Don’t take it the wrong way, it’s good, but it’s definitely an acquired taste. Matt Pike's guitarwork is, as always, fantastic. Bands like Sleep and Electric Wizard use weed to amplify their innermost feelings of animosity or alienation in the form of bone-crushing heavy metal, regardless of how you wanna categorize it. Forever. Overall, “Sleep’s Holy Mountain” is by far Sleeps greatest, and most accessible album, then again almost anything is accessible compared to a single 52 minutes song/album. 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”. Sleep's Holy Mountain is the second studio album by stoner metal band Sleep. Discover more music, concerts, videos, and pictures with the largest catalogue online at Last.fm. You are always going somewhere - it's difficult to say where exactly - but there's not much sense of direction to your travels. Style: Stoner Rock. Black Sabbath, but has some original characteristics to it; for instance, the vocals. Now if we could just get that long-awaited fourth album sometime soon, that’d be swell… Ironically, it now sits high up on the stoner rock/doom metal kingdom's throne as well as having originally established the genre's massive expansion as a fait accompli. Om (sometimes stylized as OM) is an American heavy metal band from San Francisco, California. The transition is jarring; as if they did not know where to take the music next, and simply used the next riff they had lying around with no relation to the last. Originally published at Hate Meditations. And that sort of sums up the entire album. Dimensiones exteriores: 320 mm (alto) x 320 mm (largo) x 20 mm (ancho). But it is held up by fans of metal-for-non-metalheads as a classic. Sleep's Holy Mountain (also known as Holy Mountain) is the second studio album by the American band Sleep. Ever noticed how the easiest way to experience things you thought were impossible is to shut your eyes, fall asleep, snore loudly, and dream yourself into another world? And while Sabbath holds sway, there is some Blue Cheer, some Thin Lizzy, lots of Trouble and Saint Vitus, and whereas it is tempting to think of Sleep as unabashed homage (they were teenagers at the time after all), there is something more to them than mere photocopy and pastiche. The only catalog number that appears is "MOSH 79CD", which is in three places: (1) both spines, (2) the back of the insert, and (3) the CD face. hmm. Soooooo I was shopping at FYE and had Sleep in mind while browsing their selection of metal. For starters, Sleep’s songwriting method is much looser and more interpretative than Sabbath’s ever was. Recording information: Recorded at Razors Edge, S.F. If you have ever seen the movie Gummo, “Dragonaut” sets the musical score as the two quasi-humanoid beings on bicycles propel themselves into the void that is that movie. And just as this appears poised to transition into the next phase the bass and drums cut out, to give way to a highly simple marching guitar riff. There’s some great blues jams in here. Hiding behind a bunch of bullshit was Sleep's Holy Mountain. Groups like Trouble, Saint Vitus, and Candlemass were unambiguously inspired by Master of Reality and Sabotage, but they pushed the boundaries of darkness, melancholy, and tempo to extremes never realized or even attempted by the downtuned blues Brummies. Tony Iommi once famously said that Sleep, out of all stoner doom bands out there, most "embodied the spirit of early Sabbath," and from the opening head-nodding notes of 'Dragonaut' through to the slowly capitulating doom of closer 'Nain's Baptism,' that spirit echoes on down the Holy Mountain, one of the best records to come out of the burgeoning 70's revival scene two decades ago. If you disagree I’ll slurp my crinkled hat through a straw! Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in 1280 x 960 resolution or higher. That's fine too, although the hangover is probably going to be worse than the trouble of wiping your pillow and brushing your teeth. When the Sabbath rip-offs aren't present sections of this album, they do in fact sound like something an early Sabbath could have written that was never recorded. All of these songs are pretty much equally good, as they were all seemingly divinatory of the same cosmic channel of combined inspiration and determination. 'The Druid' is stoner menace, the song you feel a little tweaked out listening to as Al Cisnero's warped vocals bark out at you about dark magic and evil wizards. “Into the Void” may have ‘rocket engines burning fuel so fast’ and “Iron Man” has its titular character ‘turned to steel in the great magnetic field,’ but those stories had real world subtexts; we never see how the Iron Man transformed or what the astronauts found in said Void. But don't be imtimidated by their length. And if that wasn’t enough, the second track “Druid” sounds much like “Electric Funeral”. Add in the flimsy yet firm foundation set by drummer Chris Hakius and you’ve got a lineup that earns its own set of wannabes. Indeed, it’s the slow and depressive dirges here that make Holy Mountain the infernal temple of the stoner. “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. In fact the only time you know you are done with a song is at the end, when there is nothing else to follow it. Sleep’s Holy Mountain may be the poster boy for the “sounds like Sabbath” stoner doom movement but there is no reason why it shouldn’t be seen as a distinct monolith in itself. in line with the album’s rich, high quality production. Sleep ‎– Sleep's Holy Mountain Genre: Rock. 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)? And for some, my previous comments would provoke accusations of ‘elitism’ faster than you can shout ‘overrated’ in retort. It was released in November 1992 in Europe, and March 1993 in the USA through Earache Records Release and reception. Or CD. Yet something about it still feels original. “From Beyond” As the album drones on and on, you start to feel a bit drowsy and drop into a slumber... Nor can Sleep print t-shirts or posters, etc with the original Holy Mountain artwork. Sleep's Holy Mountain, released under Earache Records – then an oddity for the British death metal/grindcore label - twenty-five years ago this month, is one of the first Black Sabbath schooled metal albums to grace my half-baked and utterly random CD/vinyl collection. Listen free to Sleep – Holy Mountain. And therein lies the real problem with this album. 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... Time to discuss the non-musical aspects of this album; production and cover art. There are no concessions whatsoever on this record. Rocksolid, creative, memorable and indeed heavy as fuck. Holy Mountain 24:0807. All songs have their unique characteristics that make them stand out in their own way. With "Sleep's Holy Mountain", Sleep are not just stylistically inspired by Black Sabbath, but oftentimes lift bits of Sabbath's songs and insert them into something new. For me, however, that doesn't elevate the album anywhere above mediocre. 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”. Then there's a third option, which works pretty well for me - more reliably than dreaming and more safely than drugs - and that's music. It was released in November 1992 in Europe, and March 1993 in the USA through Earache Records. There is a vital separation between the instruments instead of the usual wall of sound production. That said, the album is somewhat enjoyable. and including "Aquarian" could easily be considered worthy of it's own single release, with the exception of "Some Grass" which is a short instrumental. When one compares the standing these guys have in history to their actual output of quality it leads one to wonder. The first six Sabbath albums often utilized unorthodox structures and random tempo shifts but there was always some grounded riff or vocal line they could fall back on after a while. If he is, Al deserves a hell of a lot more credit as a vocalist because that's one hell of a range. Marler departed the band afterwards and the remaining trio recorded the group's follow up album, "Sleep's Holy Mountain" the following year. Geezer Butler may have penned the most famous odes to weed and cocaine but when your friendly neighborhood stoner band writes the ten millionth tune about Puff the Magic Dragon, leave him out of it. 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”. The direct descendants of an older form of metal that predated NWOBHM all the way back to Black Sabbath. The trio’s uniqueness is more obviously displayed on the infamous Dopesmoker and spinoff bands like Om and High on Fire, but their second full-length is something special thanks to a tripped out approach sustained by memorable riffs and stunning performances. The bass wobbles all over. “Holy Mountain” “From Beyond” and the instrumental “Nain’s Baptism” are monstrous downers that end this album in the heaviest possible fashion. ...and find yourself bouncing gently on the back of a dragon as it journeys through outer space. Highlights: This song is heavy as the balls of the gods, and the way they transition from the creeping desolation of the clean guitar interlude to the tidal wave of devastation that this title track becomes is simply masterful. After Justin Marler left the band, the core lineup of Al Cisneros, Matt Pike and Chris Hakius went into the studio to record a demo cassette that they sent to Earache Records. The direct descendants of an older form of metal that predated NWOBHM all the way back to Black Sabbath. This is kind of strange because on the back there's also a gap between "Aquarian" and "Holy Mountain". Ready to tackle everything from XC trails to technical downhill runs. 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 throbbing, meditative riffs … 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. Weed becomes essential, it adorns all aspects of the record, from the cover art and insert, to the lyrics, to the music itself. So you pick up a guitar and you play those fucking blues, man. "Sleep's Holy Mountain" is not a comfortable climb, but for the more seasoned metaller, it is certainly a worthwhile one. You can find everything on there from angels and demons to planets, the sun, magic mushrooms, and, of coure, the serrated leaves of the holy cannabis plant. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the 2007 Gatefold Vinyl release of Sleep's Holy Mountain on Discogs. But while bassist/vocalist Al Cisneros has a tenth of Ozzy’s charisma and his vocal lines often seem construed as afterthoughts compared to Matt Pike’s domineering guitar work, his voice has more substance than he lets on. There must have been some serious pot-smoking going on during the process of writing the music. Better to use it as ending credits than the bulk of your album I suppose. MOSH 79CD; CD). Non-stop. 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)? When you wake up with bad breath and slobber on your pillow, an image hangs before your eyes for a few seconds before it begins to flee rapidly, leaving you wondering what it was exactly and whether you can go back there. Whereas many stoner doom bands try to outdo one another in the heaviness department, Sleep steps back and lets their songs breathe. Sleep takes the ideas a step further; reality is completely forsaken in favor of escapist stoner fantasies that detail space dragons, reptile masters, and magic potions. And Sleep says it with the guttural confidence of axe-wielding brutes, stoned and free to rule the riff-filled land. Year: 1992. I personally don’t listen to this album without smoking. Incluye: 1- Lamina de arraglas (proteccion frontal). Dopesmoker is a work of art and all, but I practically have to set aside a whole afternoon to savor it. So I should hate Sleep for their blatantly intentional Black Sabbath homages, right? Well, this is true of at least one of their original LPs I guess, 1992’s ‘Sleep’s Holy Mountain’. The album is now considered one of the most seminal releases in the "stoner rock" genre. This song, more than any other, escapes the clutches of Sabbath to sound entirely of its own. Sleep’s structures tend to be more fluid and atmospheric; you have songs like “Inside the Sun” and “Aquarian,” where tempos are constantly shuffled about, next to songs like the title track and “From Beyond,” where the musicians will ride and develop a single riff for minutes on end. Apparently, "no one's heard of it nor will they ever...so thanks but no thanks!” Looking back on the incident, all I can say is tough cookies pal as it was your loss and my gain as this fifty-two minute nine track behemoth set the tone for a soon ensuing floodgate of Sabbath influenced/inspired acts. If not, it's a journey worth taking. The crawl is gradual and a little uncomfortable at first (you're on your hands and knees), but you start to get used to it, and then not to mind it, and even to enjoy it. So fill your pipe and light up, as demonstrated on the back cover of this Holy Mountain, and ride the shockwaves that rattle the earth below with these hymns of doom. Identifiers: Barcode: 7 45316 00792 5 The sound is very much inspired by the masters i.e. This has the effect of drawing listeners further into the science fantasy world the lyrics conjure up. The riffs are heavy, deep, and catchy, often loose, sometimes sloppy. 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. Rated #33 in the best albums of 1992, and #1869 of all-time album.. The lyrics... Well, what can I say? Very, very few people are able to capture the vibe of the almighty Tony Iommi, and even fewer people seem capable of nailing the jazzy dynamic between Geezer and Bill Ward. See all 2 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions. Ironically, it now sits high up on the stoner rock/doom metal kingdom's throne as well as having originally established the genre's massive expansion as a fait accompli. A good choice for the closing track because it is very mellow and soothing. It's... strange, but very cool, too. Around the halfway mark, the musicians finds their groove and for a short while are lost in their trance world of smart driving riffs. It can actually get pretty annoying. …and no, Sleep doesn’t make a dime from that record and hasn’t since the early 90’s. The sound is typical of what you'd expect from this genre. They also sound similar to how Pike would deliver vocals in High on Fire, so it's a little hard for me to believe it's Al laying those vocals down. Another thing that be an acquired taste is Matt Pike’s vocals, which are highly synthesized and have almost are sound unnatural. 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. The recordings that would become Sleep's Holy Mountain were originally sent to independent label Earache as a demo. So for any stoner metal fan, or doom metal fan, or even someone who just happens to really really like Black Sabbath, this album is absolutely recommended. 3- Kit completo de montaje (se entrega montado). 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. Yes, the influences are obvious, but sometimes it’s not what you say, but how you say it. Another track that features a strong crushing bass-dominated rhythm is "From Beyond" which by this point in the album is far gone in alternative sludge doom metal territory with a changeable structure that includes plenty of instrumental soloing and jamming, monotone robotic vocals in parts and a trance-like mood. The production certainly sounds raw and primitive but this fits the music perfectly giving off an oldschool vibe that gives the impression that this was recorded back in the 70's. This release is similar to Sleep's Holy Mountain but has a different back cover (UPC along upper right, no copyright info, etc), and the CD has different identifiers. 27-ene-2014 - Marco fabricado en aluminio anodizado de color negro mate. Fuzzlord Effects Troglodyte Fuzz Pedal Demo. After a short bluegrass melody, it's back to serious doom in "Aquarian" with a chuggy intro going into a slow-paced rhythm and bleached-out vocals. 'Dragonaut' is perhaps the most accessible tune here, adhering to more conventional song structures and containing several dope head-nodding riffs that kaleidoscope into one of the most memorable metal songs in history. "Dragonaut" is a jaunty introduction to the album proper with a deep fuzzy bass sound, distorted guitars and escapist visions of a giant reptile flying away into the wild blue yonder of the imagination. It begins with a quintessential blues rock riff that would be very much at home on a Blue Cheer record. I think part of the reason people enjoy "Sleep's Holy Mountain" (besides pot) is for the amateur appeal. in line with the album’s rich, high quality production. 1000 copies pressed on green vinyl. There’s some great doom metal. Dragonaut 00:0002. Needless to say, this is one of the best and weirdest movies ever conceived, and splicing it with the otherworldliness of Sleep, even if it is just for that one MASSIVE riff, is some of the stoniest entertainment available to mankind. If ever people want a crash course in doom metal that takes them from beginner level to far into the cosmos running the gamut from stoner rock to sludge and from songs to deep trance and almost ritualistic instrumental music in the space of less than an hour, Sleep's "Holy Mountain" is ideal training. 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. With the explosion of stoner doom over the past ten years or so, Sleep are often held up as the grandaddys of this renaissance. Well, first impressions can be very deceptive. Speaking of Matt Pike, I know it says Al Cisneros does lead vocals on this album but I could swear I think Pike is taking the lead on songs with much more aggressive vocals like The Druid and Inside The Sun.
