Of all the Sunn recordings, I believe this to be their best. "Flight of the Behemoth" is huge, as is "00 Void" but this is the one currently on heavy rotation. Lately I can't get enough of this genre, whatever it is we call it. earth2, Boris "Absolutego" and all the Sunn stuff has taken me down the path of spiritual awakening. This is sound that move the soul, moreso than any other form of music.
I must be doing something right, since my 16 year old daughter thinks her dad's music is loud and obnoxious.
This album like all Sunn 0))) releases, is brilliant from start to finish. This album, from what i've read, is hard to find. So really, if you are a fan of this band, do not miss this album and buy it through Amazon.com.
Starting off with the slow and sludgy song, Black Wedding which goes for around 19 minutes, you can actually feel the tension. There's a certain tension with this kind of music, where it can be either hypnotic, or tense, or just trippy. I'd say this album is tense for the most part.
The second song Defeating : Earth's Gravity, picks up where Black Wedding left off and can almost be confused with it being the same song. But if you listen closely, they really aren't. Sunn 0))) do that. They aren't just mindless noise. They're actually an intelligent, hypnotic, band..that differ from most noise/metal bands around today.
The ending of Defeating : Earth's Gravity, fades away into silence leading into the 3rd track Dylan Carlson. If anyone is wondering why it's named "Dylan Carlson"..It's actually the name of the guitarist from Earth. One of the bands that influenced Sunn 0))). ..Just for a random fact, if you didn't know..Dylan Carlson actually sold to Kurt Cobain, the gun he used to commit suicide. But now apparently he is a heroin junkie. But the song on this album, is very slow, and sludgy..much like Black Wedding. This song is also the longest on this album, at 21 minutes too.
Then the last song, Grimm & Bear It, comes on.Read more ›
Yes, yes you do want to take a very long drive along an unlit road.
Yes, yes you do want to listen to sound, to the world, to your mind.
Yes, the epic poem in the album notes is as absurd and genuine as SunnO))) itself.
No, no you cannot appreciate SunnO))) without knowing their work in full.
