Sunn O))) – Black One


I have known this „band“(well in fact i don´t really like to call Sunn O))) a band) for ages and I always tried to get into their “music” but in fact it never really worked.
But then a few weeks ago while listening to them once again I tried not to see them as a typical music project but I rather considered them for producing atmospheres on a different level then music is “normally” defined.
Black One is actually a three year old album and lives up to its name. This is the most brutal and indigestible
record i have ever heard.
Drowsy, repetitive guitar riffs, some undefined percussions, obscene sound effects, disgusting snatches from
USBM vocalists Wrest (Leviathan) and Malefic (Xasthur), and a hypnotic atmosphere lead to a wall of pure bone-crushing madness, called Black One!
Sunn O))) released with this record an incredible and path breaking ambient drone doom record with a few Black Metal influences, such as the typical repetitive Black Metal riff in “It took the night to believe” and the vocals in this masterpiece of a “song”.
I think not everyone
will be able to enjoy Sunn O))) but all those who want to give them a chance: Just be prepared for something you have never heard before!

For all those who didn’t know it yet, Sunn O))) even recorded a live Album here in Luxembourg in the “Kufa” in Esch-Alzette in 2006 and I could kill myself for not having been at this happening




For those who are curious:
