Sleep - Holy Mountain & Dopesmoker




A few days ago I sold a bunch of my stuff and dropped a shit ton of money on some plane tickets to get to All Tomorrow's Parties to see Sleep play. Well... Sleep, Electric Wizard, Lords, Jesu, and the fucking Jesus Lizard amongst others. But really, the first order of business is Sleep. It's a good fucking day when the first order of business is Sleep.

So, while dicking around on the internet today I just found out that not only is Sleep playing 2 days. But their line up is supposed to be something like:

Day 1: All of Holy Mountain, front to back
Day 2: All of Jerusalem, front to back + a newly completed unreleased song from back in the day

FUCK ME MOTHERFUCKERS! DID YOU JUST READ THAT SHIT! ALL OF HOLY MOUNTAIN AND ALL OF JERUSALEM! THAT'S LIKE BEING CRUSHED TO FUCKING UNDER THE WORLD'S MOST MASSIVE FUCKING ANVIL FULL OF FUCKING DRUGS AND RIFFAGE! IT'S LIKE AN WEED ANVIL PINATA OF FUCKING DOOM HANGING 3 INCHES ABOVE YOUR HOLLOW SQUISHY DOMEPIECE READY TO ANNIHILATE YOU AT THE FIRST SWING OF THE BAT AXE!

In honor of the fact that I will soon be able to kick the bucket a happy man, here's all of Holy Mountain and all of Dopesmoker (the 2003 release with the live version of Sonic Titan). yessssssss........

This is the point that all other awesome 90's doom sprung from/around. The Magnum Dopus if you will. Hit this shit.

Sleep - Holy Mountain

Sleep - Dopesmoker

EDIT: DOPESMOKER IS BACK UP. RE-DOWNLOAD WITHOUT DRM NOW.
