Holy Mountain In 2011, Southern Lord was contacted by Sleeps Al Cisneros about the possibility of releasing a deluxe version of the classic Sleep recording: Dopesmoker. The Lord version features brand new artwork by long time Sleep artist, Arik Roper, who created something specifically special for the albums rebirth. The biggest difference between this new version and the old releases is the phenomenal remastering job by Brad Boatright. His vision was to enhance the original recording without changing it drastically. Dopesmoker is the third album from the American stoner band Sleep, released in April 22, 2003. Produced by both the band and Billy Anderson, the album went through problems with their label London Records who refused to release the album, which ran for over an hour and consisted of just one song, as the band intended which led to the album being released in a truncated format years later.

The album was later released in. The Sleep album Dopesmoker consists of a single, 63 minute song, written by the band over the course of 4 years during the mid 90s.

When Sleep broke up after the failure of Dopesmoker, the trio split into two unequal halves: Almost immediately, Matt Pike started High on Fire, who have continued adding different kinds of fuel to the same generalized burn.

A perfect song to show the major advantages of the Cd format on this type of style. I cant imagine having to flip 4 LP sides to hear it!!
Reading about the recording of the album, the 2x LP format does fit as well. It was recorded reel to reel, and they could only record about 22 minutes at a time. Its a different album where both physical formats fit the music.
