Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain

The reason people buy Sleep’s 60 minute song Dopesmoker on vinyl, is that the only alternative to flipping it halfway through is, in fact, not listening to it on vinyl. Luckily for you, Holy Mountain contains separate songs, allowing the occasional silence between the wall of energy and noise. Remastered in Full Dynamic Range, this reissue will reveal new depths to this stonerrock classic. Sleep members would later found Om and High on Fire, continuing to bring noise upon us. 

Sleep
The Clarity

New music from stoner-metal overlords Sleep! The Clarity was recorded in 2009, a decade after previous release Dopesmoker and seven years before now. Let no-one accuse Sleep of being in a hurry. The Clarity is a thick and chewy slab of sludge, presented on a single side of vinyl, with the other being artfully etched. 12” on Southern Lord.

Al Cisneros
Lantern of The Soul

Al Cisneros’s is best known for being the bass player in the awesome power stoner rock band Sleep and the singer/bassist of heavy, rhythmic drone band Om as well as being in Shrinebuilder and Asbestosdeath. 7” ‘Lantern Of The Soul’ is his latest solo release on Sinai imprint, following sonically in the religious tones of Om with all the therapeutic effects of Cisneros’s signature, deep, hypnotic tones.
