Yeah I think I'd appreciate it more now too. I was a bigger Sleep fan than High on Fire back then but HoF finally clicked with me on a way higher level.
Snakes still gets better with every listen and recently I've found myself jamming Surrounded by Thieves more than usual. Why this band isn't way bigger than they are is a shock to me.
