Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Colored vinyl version of Sleep's iconic second studio album Holy Mountain originally released in November 1992 in Europe and March 1993 in the US through Earache Records. Universally regarded as one of the most seminal albums in the evolution of stoner rock it became a favorite of the heavy metal press and the band was heralded, along with Kyuss, as leaders of the emerging stoner metal scene. Since ending Sleep, guitarist and vocalist Matt Pike has found success with High on Fire, while Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius formed Om.
Sleep's Holy Mountain will be given the Full Dynamic Range treatment that has previously enhanced albums from the likes of Carnage, Entombed, Morbid Angel and Napalm Death amongst others. For those of you still unaware, Earaches' Full Dynamic Range releases were made in response to the so-called "loudness wars," with the dynamic range of music being restricted more and more in an effort to make it sound louder.
These releases, on the other hand, deliver the music at its optimum sound level dynamically, leaving the listener to decide on the playback level. In essence, you hear the tracks as they were made and intended to sound, with no loss of quality.
"A perfect balance of grooving doom, Sabs-style riffage and lumbering dynamics." - Kerrang Magazine
