SUNN O))): "Black One" is complete!

The crippling tonal invocations of SUNN O)))'s dismal trademark execution takes a crushing next step in subharmonic expansion, as the monolithic sound slab "Black One" is completed...

The cult and mainstream masses that their "White One" and "White Two releases" gained the duo by storming countless national press outlets and publications and bulldozing the band into the mainstream, have awaited this day. Although hard to fathom "Black One" pulls you much deeper into a quagmire of sound with even more of a oppressive shroud of depressive grim tone, this time exorcising the black metal demons that posses these more doom-related icons. Conjuring dark forces to aid in their cause, SUNN O)))'s primary players (Greg Anderson - Southern Lord Records, Goatsnake and Stephen O))Malley - Khanate, Lotus Eaters) are joined by a pack of savages including Wrest (Leviathan), Maelific (Xasthur), John Wiese (Bastard Noise, Sissy Spacek) Mathias Schneeberger (producer of The Obsessed, Saint Vitus, Goatsnake) and atmospheric soundscape artist Oren Ambarchi.


Needless to say, the final product is a bewildering avalanche of unparalleled sonic doom. A Neanderthal release in its entirety, this will set a new precedent for worshipers of the cavedrone.


"Black One" suffocates the planet October 18th, 2005.
