Sleep is known for heavy, relentless, repetitive riffs. Its best known track is probably “Dopesmoker,” which features a single, repeating guitar line being pummeled for a little over an hour (their record label called it “unmarketable”). The trio broke up in the mid 1990s, but reformed in 2009 and released a fantastic record this year called The Sciences, which features the highlight-track “Marijuanaut’s Theme” (ha).
