A1: DOPESMOKER (1:03:31).
CATEGORY: HEAVY ROCK | DURATION: 64 MINUTES
In the terminal phases when all noteworthy popular music pushed at the extremes before an inevitable collapse, Sleep stood tall by offering up Dopesmoker, an album comprised solely of its 64-minute title track. Extending Sleep’s psychotropic mythos to evoke a mystical journey through stark alien lands in pursuit of transcendental intoxication, Dopesmoker takes heavy rock to its final destination, where only those truly dedicated to madness, distortion and brain-bending phantasias were left to guard the crumbling ramparts of reason.
THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF ROBERT YOUNG (1964-2014)
