Sunn (O))): Black One 2x12" (clear vinyl)

Southern Lord Records


Sunn 0))) made their reputation on drone metal descended from the work of pioneers Earth, but BLACK ONE expands their palette to include just about every experimental style they've indulged in over their career. Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson, the band's principals, have invited kindred spirits like percussionist Oren Ambarchi and Xasthur's Malefic to the banquet, and the result is as meticulously orchestrated as a symphony, albeit one constructed of darker materials. Black metal atmosphere pervades nearly every corner of the album, particularly on the epic "Bathory Erzebet," which features a harrowing Malefic performance recorded in a casket.
