It sounds like going up and down in something.

Listen to them on a nice set of speakers, lay back and settle yourself.

They are like the bloody growls of a nightmarish beast.

Chances are, you are not looking at the amazon page for _Flight of the Behemoth_ because you accidentally stumbled on to it. You are here because something brought you here, perhaps an article reference, perhaps words from a friend. Either way, the fact that you are even reading this at all tells me that you already have at least a partial affinity for music like this, even if you do not yet realize it. Now I want to show you why you need to have this album.

This album is almost trivially dark and doomy sounding at the surface. Yet as the sound slowly seethes, it becomes emotionally damaging, like a cruel, impotent rage that hungers for revenge. The force of Sunn 0))) is an exquisitely mapped evolution of guitar distortion -- accompanied with a little piano, percussion, and Merzbow - through which a story unfolds of something so horrifying, no one can speak about it. Speaking intelligibly, after all, requires language...and language requires reason. Reason must struggle with comprehending _Flight of the Behemoth_, as it can seemingly only operate on a primitive, intuitive level -- a subrational element suppressed in any civilized man, yet capable of response to the crude brutality of this music. If music-listening's value is about a narrowly defined pleasure or "nice feelings", then _Flight of the Behemoth_ (along with countless other works) must be considered illegitimate. But if aesthetic appreciation is about something more, and the musical experience is capable of being even more enriching beyond traditional concepts and emotions, then this is monumental. Its influences are clear, but it is beyond them.

"Death Becomes You" has the best opening in music history--ensure your stereo is cranked.

Yet another masterpiece album by Sunn 0))). I'll say this first..If you are just getting into Sunn 0))), and have none of their albums but are going to buy this one. I wouldn't, as it seems to be their most "different" album, if that makes sense. If you are new, i would try White 2 first.

This CD starts off so awesome..The first song "Mocking Solemnity", sounds like an Airplane taking off. And for the rest of the 9 mins of the song you are taken on a journey of sludgey riffs, and minor feedback. The song leads straight into "Death Becomes You", which goes for around 13 minutes. And it continues on, in the same fashion as "Mocking Solemnity".

The tracks that are definitely different and experimental, even for Sunn 0))), are the tracks 0))) Bow 1 and 0))) Bow 2. Working with Merzbow, who is just one of the many Japanese Noise Musicians. I've only ever heard one song by him, and that was "1930", which sounded like it was recorded inside a building that was collapsing. Very intense, and harsh. 0))) Bow 2, i think, is better than 0))) Bow 1. It sounds like going up and down in something. It's really trippy, and the start of the song sounds like going on a rollercoaster in a hailstorm. And if listened to up really loud, gives you the feeling of being sea-sick. It's awesome.

But the other reviewer i saw who said that the Merzbow/Sunn 0))) songs do end up sounding more like Merzbow, is right. In some parts you can't hardly tell that Sunn 0))) are playing. But it's still an interesting collaboration.

The last track, "F.W.T.B.T", goes back to more of the typical, ultra-heavy, low-end riffs. It's also a good song and probably my favourite track on here. Actually reminds me of a slower Eyehategod.

People say that Sunn 0))) are a"Tribute Band" to Earth.

I can't understand how this album is getting 3 1/2 stars. All of Sunn0)))'s albums have pretty much the same idea, lowest level of handling, but the music is so interesting that it sounds like nothing ever put out before. I believe these guys are way different from Earth. There are Earth elements, definately, but a totally different style.

Do yourself a favor, if you came here to check out a little more information about Sunn0))), ignore the negative reviews and buy this, or White2 for starters. Listen to them on a nice set of speakers, lay back and settle yourself. You'll find yourself in a completely different world. Sunn 0))) brings you there.

I sometimes awake in an inexplicably foul mood, wondering if I've had dreams too unsettling to recall. Fortunately, my lovely fiancé made a point of being especially cute and funny so that I would start the day with a smile. I listened to 'Flight of the Behemoth' by Sunn 0))) for the entire 30 minute commute, that is to say, through about 3 songs. This is an early album, but I'm eager to hear more variations on the theme, as their `Drone Metal' does exactly what I hoped it'd do, which is to make my music experience more conscious. If it takes minimalist soundscapes of guitar distortion and noises rather than songs to do it, so be it. During the drive, when I took the long slow turn onto an adjacent highway, I looked up a hill, through a gathering of saplings, at a new sun. It was so beautiful I almost took my eyes off the road, and when a mile later someone almost hit me while trying to cut me off, I slowed to let them in, not even mad. For a moment I took intentional distortions as a skipping CD, then thought of twigs snapping to build a life or death fire. The puddles at the edges of the landfill became ponds and the frost at the edges of the driving range became magic. This stuff does not make me `peaceful,' much less `passive,' but it does make me glad to be alive, and aware.
