Attention, oeuvre anthologique à la croisée des genres, et par conséquent, inclassable.Avec cette merveille, les Américains de Sleep ont posé les bases du stoner et du doom "fuzzé". Holy Mountain est une pièce atypique qui aurait pu s'intituler "Déclinaison d'un riff en neuf versions". A l'écoute du disque, on a cette curieuse impression d'entendre le même riff à longueur de temps, mais cela ne provoque pas le moindre ennui, loin de là, cela apporterait même une certaine structure à l'auditeur de ce qui est un trip de plus pour les musiciens. Sleep possède un son, un groove personnel, peut être difficile d'accès au premier abord, mais qui paraît tellement évident pour le passionné, une impression de vélocité toute contrôlée, et poisseuse, un véritable pachyderme en quelque sorte.

Des morceaux longs mais point trop, avoisinant en moyenne les 6 minutes avec des pointes à 10, un intermède acoustique central ("Some Grass") à la manière d'un "Jasco" de Sepultura (jamais je n'aurai cru mentionner un tel groupe dans une chronique de doom), qui vient aérer l'album, laissant aux musiciens comme à l'auditeur le temps de s'en rouler un autre.. Avant de repartir de plus belle sur la pièce maîtresse du groupe, "Holy Mountain". L'impression de chevaucher un dragon au milieu de décors désertiques n'a jamais été aussi palpable. Montagnes russes, plongées sous-marines parmi les Atlantes ("Aquarian"), Sleep ne nous épargne rien..

Un bijou, LA perle à avoir. Traverse le temps sans problème: il fait son effet. Franchement il faut absolument l'avoir lorsqu'on aime le psychédélisme sombre.

HASH(0x95dba714) étoiles sur 5 Perfect for all the Sabbath heads. 21 mars 2005
Par Parkansky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
For all the Black Sabbath fans who loved Master Of Reality, this is for you. All the songs are groove-heavy stoner jams with some brilliant riffs. Dragonaut sounds like Sabbath circa 1971. Get this now if you love old-school doom.

Originally recorded and submitted as a demo to Earache Records, this was instantly recognized as something special, and put out with a quickness, though probably then even Earache didn't know what a seminal underground classic, and Stoner Rock/Doom cornerSTONE, this would GROW to become. The recipe is simple: Copious amounts of green; the first four Black Sabbath albums; detuned guitars; droning, pounding drums; wah-wah bass; beyond lethargic vocals; and sci-fi lyrics about weed, space, mountains, dragons and druids, and BAM! Sounds easy right? Not so. No other band since has come close to what they accomplished with this album. Fittingly, only Sleep themselves managed to top "Holy Mountain", with their follow-up, "Dopesmoker", following a few years later. This album is a classic, and still holds up as though it were recorded today (or the 70's)! The "Dragonaut" video and the "Masters of Misery"-Sabbath Tribute album cover track "Snowblind" are definitely bonuses, though it would have been really cool to have their Vol. 2 EP included, but oh well. This is a cool reissue, HIGH-ly recommended!

HASH(0x95dbaa44) étoiles sur 5 WEED ASTRONAUTS! 93% 30 septembre 2011
Par J. Perrotta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
At each point in my life, I went through some sort of musical phase. In my younger days, I was always into alternative and grunge rock. When I got older (at about 11) I started drooling over progressive metal and rock. The next, and final, state I am currently in, is the doom metal phase.

When one is trying to get into stoner metal, they will always hear of three bands - Sleep, Bongzilla, and Electric Wizard. These three bands all revolutionized the genre, but it was Sleep that stood out the most among them.

I will start off by saying that this album is monolithically heavy. So heavy, in fact, that I feel as though I am not doing it justice by not typing this in all Caps lock.

If you've read my profile, you can see that I gave Dopesmoker, Sleep's final album, a 5 star rating. While this might not be as good as Dopesmoker, it is still an incredible album, and is probably Sleep's most accessible one. The songs on this album are still very long (with the three longest songs each breaching the 7, 8, and 10 minute marks, respectively). The vocals, as opposed to Dopesmoker which were slow and chant like, are agressive and emotional. Similarly to another good doom metal release, Reverend Bizarre's "Crush the Insects", the songs get longer as the album moves along.

Most people will tell you that in order to enjoy this type of music, you must be under the influence of weed. I tell you now that you do not need to be intoxicated to enjoy this type of music, as these tracks alone are enough to put you into a trance like state.

"Dragonaut" is the starter track, and begins with some of the grooviest riffing around. Bongzilla. And then the drums come in. Yup, Bongzilla. This song is an incredibly spacey jam, dominated by the heavy riff which comes in at 1:17. And just to warn you, this album is repetitive, so expect to hear some similar riffs on some of the songs. This song remains groovy throughout, highlighted by Al Cisneros' druggie influenced vocals. Now I know where the singer from Saturnalia Temple got his influence from!

"The Druid" is perhaps my favorite from the album, and is highlighted by the best main riff Sleep have ever produced in their entire career. The vocals on this song are very minimal, as Al only sings for about 40 seconds for the entire thing. The bass in this song is beyond grooving, I mean man! At 2:19, the drums drop out of the song and Al Cisneros and Matt Pike start to chug along in unison...that part is awesome! The song climaxes with a really awesome solo, before it kicks back into the main riff. When listening to this song, head explosions will ensue. Perhaps the only thing bad about this track is that it's too short (4:52), only second to the final track, but this is a VERY minor complaint and doesn't taint the song in general.

"Evil Gypsy/Solomon's Theme" is one of the lesser known tunes from the album. It begins with droning guitar feedback, and before long we're pushed into a really massive riff. The drums are perhaps the second coolest part of this song, in my opinion, the first being the vocals, which are furious and visceral, with some of the best lyrics penned by the band:

"Insect caravan pulls it's way
Through the freezing and misty haze
Gypsy casts a spell of frost
Frozen solid our lives are paused"

At 1:42, the vocals get less aggressive, and believe me when I say "Is that Ozzy Osbourne as a guest musician?!" He isn't, but still, the Ozzy influence on this track is particularly glaring. In between a sweet guitar solo and some sick riffing, the vocals finally return at 6:17. This song is way too underrated, even among Sleep fans.

"Some Grass" is a short 49 second interlude, and proves the band have some sense of humor, as it merely consists of Pike strumming on an acoustic for almost a minute. Though it's not necessarily a "real" track, it prepares us for...

"Aquarian" quickly recovers from the filler that was the last track. Beginning with short feedback, the guitars and drums quickly kick in. The vocals are really Ozzy-esque here. At about the 2 minute mark the song takes a turn that sounds even more Bongzilla than Bongzilla. Some great lyrics in this track too, something crazy about Atlantis and the Aquarian Age. One of my least favorites from the album, but that isn't saying much.

The title track is probably my second favorite of the album. It's probably the heaviest track on the album, quite a feat. given the fact that all the tracks are monolithically heavy. The vocals Al uses on this track are more reminescent of what he would later use in Dopesmoker, though they aren't drawn out like on Dopesmoker. Dammit, I'm listening to this song right now, and I'm resisting the urge to type everything in Caps...anyway, 4 minutes in, the song calms down with some seriously groovy bass and guitar riffs, with the drums playing hesitantly in the background. The vocals don't rearrive until the last 47 seconds of the song, resulting in a super climax.

"Inside The Sun"...I really don't know what to think of this track. It's a good song, but it's not enough to grasp my interest, even if it is one of the shorter tracks. It's not that I don't enjoy it, but it's doubtlessly my least favorite from the album, and could use a little more bite. Ah well, at least the bass and vocals are cool.

Fortunately, the band quickly regains their posture, with the epic 10 and a-half-minute monster "From Beyond", and a monster it is. It begins with a long spacey intro, which reminds me alot of the intro of Reverend Bizarre's track "The Wandering Jew" from their Harbinger of Metal EP. Suddenly, at 1:18, we're pushed into the stoner sludge that dominated the preceding 6 tracks. The vocals don't make their mark until 4:12, and are one of Al's best performances. The lyrics are just great - OK, screw this, I can't take this anymore. Time to unleash my caps lock rage:

"CHOIR OF THE SUN CHANTS INSIDE THE ANTI-MOON
SHOCKWAVES RATTLE THE EARTH BELOW WITH HYMN OF DOOM
CHILLED RAYS FREEZE BELOW THE EYE OF SILVER SUN
DAMNED SOULS GATHER IN THE VALLEY OF THE EVIL ONE"

At the 6 minute mark, the heaviness drops out of existence, and we're treated with an awesome spacey section. Said spacey section is highlighted by the best part of the song - while the bass and guitar riffs drone softly in the background, Al preaches like a Hinduist who's words echo and bounce within every wall. The song ends with an incredibly cool guitar solo, and finally, we can relax from this 49 minute onslaught of doom.

...But wait! There's still one more track left, and that goes by the title of "Nain's Baptism". However, no need to worry, this is soft track, relaxing even. It reminds me of "The Hills Have Eyes" from Electric Wizard's Dopethrone album, except about three times longer (3:04). It's an instrumental track as well. Personally, I think "From Beyond" was a better way to end the album, but an extra 3 minutes is always good, right?

This one of the best albums of stoner/doom metal, and should be an album listened to by any fan of stoner doom metal. Sleep revolutionized an awesome genre with this album, and for that, they deserve all the praise they get.

HASH(0x95dbaf6c) étoiles sur 5 A classic! 22 septembre 2007
Par Jason R. Hood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is a classic in every sense of the word. Sleep was one of those bands that had a heavy influence on most of todays fuzzed out stoner rock. Matt Pike has went on to form High on Fire which are good to but in my opinion Sleep was better. Holy mountain has a wicked sound, and it's slow as hell. They have huge build ups until they drag in a riff that will melt your speakers.The Orange amps they used give this release a distinct sound. This album is worth every penny.

The Remaster/Reissue is a must own! This is bottom line the best Stoner/Doom Metal album ever made the songs are so thick and heavy it's like someone is pouring thick sludge over the Strings and melting everything in it's wake. BUY THIS!! The cover of Black sabbath's snowblind kicks ass!
