Southern Lord recently announced a deluxe reissue of one of the towering achievements in metal history, Dopesmoker by Sleep.
For the 2012 reissue, there are some very notable changes. The original studio tapes have been remastered, presenting the album as the band had originally intended. The audio is clearer, louder, and at last brings a true representation of Sleep‘s hour-plus Weedian chronicle.
Exclusive to this Southern Lord edition is brand new artwork by longtime Sleep artist Arik Roper, who crafted something truly special and consciousness-expanding for the album’s rebirth.
