Sleep's Holy Mountain

by Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain by Sleep
Released: Nov 1992
Label: Earache Records Ltd
The most influential stoner-metal album to emerge from said movement of the '90s, Holy Mountain translates the crush-thud of Sabbath doomology into the post-Saint Vitus era, permanently setting a bar for heavy music. While it's hard to write about this album and not turn into a blubbering zealot, it's even more difficult to listen to "Dragonaut," the title cut, "Aquarian" and "From Beyond" -- all of it -- without wetting your pants if you're even a casual fan of the sanctified moves of Tony, Geezer, Bill Ward and Ozzy.
