Apparently there isn't a Sleep thread. This offended me personally so I took the matter into my own hands and made this one.

If Sabbath are the Godfathers or Stoner/Doom metal, Sleep are definatly the Fathers. Awesome band, Dragonaut is still the best song ever.

Sleep are amazing.
I think that Dopesmoker could only have been conceived to piss off their label, though. They ended up spending half their funding on weed.

Matt Pike is pretty awesome, although most of the bands he starts/plays in sound kind of similar...


EDIT: Didn't Al Cisneros and the drummer form a band called Om? Has anyone heard their stuff?

Matt Pike is the shit.

When they recorded dopesmoker they kinda went into like self destruct mode,The band imploded after that recording session.

I dont mind that the broke up though, cause it gave the world to killer bands high on fire, and Om.

Sleep gets boring after awhile.

You cant tell me Om doesn't get boring man, as much as I love the smooth drumming, the psychedelic bass lines, and mellow vocals. It does get a bit repetitive in a mind numbing sort of way.

Its definitely music that you have to be in the right mood for... Its definitely repetitive, but that adds to the purpose of chilling you out to the point of no return. Haha I couldn't listen to OM everyday, but when i do, It's great.

Sleep are fuzzfusking badass... but i enjoy OM and and High on Fire just as much, depending on mah mood.

Dopesmoker...is an epic composition of mythical proportions.

An hour and three minutes of pure stoned awesomeness.
