Remastered from the original tapes, here comes a due reissue of Sleep’s iconic second studio album "Holy Mountain", originally released in November 1992 in Europe and March 1993 in the USA through Earache Records. Widely considered as one of the most seminal albums in the evolution of stoner rock, it became a favourite of the heavy metal press and the band was heralded - along with Kyuss - as leaders of the emerging stoner metal scene. The song "Dragonaut" was used in the 1997 Harmony Korine film "Gummo".
This CD album has been specially remastered using 'FDR' - Full Dynamic Range mastering - allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving the whole album a more ferocious and dynamic sound than ever before, and enabling the listener to immerse in the full audio heaviness like never before.
Since ending Sleep, guitarist and vocalist Matt Pike has found success with High on Fire, while Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius formed Om.
