"KTL is a side project of Stephen O'Malley from Sunn O))).  A beautiful, dark & claustrophobic album full of detuned synths and rumbling bass."
Black One

"Arguably the album that popularized doom metal; not my favorite Sunn O))), but it's a good starting point."
Rock Dream

"This is Boris & Merzbow doing what they do best--creating gentle ambient sounds that evolve in the huge walls of noise and feedback.  It's post-rock meets doom metal meets harsh noise meets...you name it.  One of my favorite releases of late '07."
Amplifier Worship

"If you like heavy, droning, fuzz-laced metal, you can never go wrong with Boris.  One of their most doom-y albums."

"Lovely ambient sounds & gamelan-like percussion leads to deeper, languid melodies.  Great to zone out or meditate to; perfect for a rainy day on the couch with a cup of tea."
Drunken Forest

"Harsh organic sounds and droning ambient tones blend together for a challenging but rewarding listening experience."
Touched

"Very heavy yet still very melodic; it's like Black Sabbath meets My Bloody Valentine."
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
"The perfect intro album to black metal.  A non-stop assault on all of the senses, this is one of the most intense albums I have ever heard; a metal classic for good reason."
Beaches & Canyons
Beaches & Canyons
"Like a little Pop music flair with your noise?  Try Black Dice.  If dig Animal Collective's early work, this might be right up your alley."
Lucifer Rising
Lucifer Rising
"The dark sonic magick that resulted from the meeting of underground occult director Kenneth Anger and imprisoned Manson family alum Bobby Beausoleil.  A wonderfully creepy psychedelic heavy metal masterpiece."
Hibernaculum
Hibernaculum
"A great, accessible work from the granddaddy of drone metal.  Heavy, slow fuzz guitars and drums blend with a country twang.  Beautifully understated music."
Coast Explodes
Coast Explodes
"Heavy prog stoner metal; a good introduction to the world of modern heavy music for classic rock fans."
