Sunn 0))) are an American Drone band. Most people the first listen discard them as "awful". It takes some time for them to grow on you. If thats you, then I suggest you to listen to them a couple more times. Mainly to be fair.

I suggest you listen too

Black One ; and White2

They're both great album's.


New album coming out soon!

SUNN O))) release details for “Monoliths & Dimensions”

—–
SUNN O))) is proud to present their 7th studio album, after 10 years of existence, entitled Monoliths & Dimensions. The album showcases the core guitar duo - Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson - incorporating influences from a plethora of guest musicians, bringing the SUNN O))) sound to epic new levels. The band also collaborated with composer Eyvind Kang (notable for his work with John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell, etc.) on various acoustic ensembles, in addition to the Helios fueled electric guitars and basses. Key players on the album include Australian guitar genius Oren Ambarchi, enigmatic Hungarian vocalist Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Tormentor, etc.) and slow music godfather Dylan Carlson (Earth), as well as Julian Priester (worked with Sun Ra in the 50s, John Coltrane’s African Brass band, and Herbie Hancock’s Sextant band) and new-music horn player Stuart Dempster. There’s also an upright bass trio, French & English horns, harp & flute duo, piano, brass, reed & strings ensembles, and a Viennese woman’s choir led by Persian vocal savant Jessika Kenney.

The album is not “SUNN O))) with strings” or “metal meets orchestra” material. The band took an approach concentrating on more of allusion toward the timbre of feedback and the instruments involved, so the piece is really illusory, beautiful and not entirely linear, stating that the end product is “the most musical piece we’ve done, and also the heaviest, powerful and most abstract set of chords we’ve laid to tape” The album was recorded and mixed by Randall Dunn & Mell Dettmer at various points over the last 2 years, and will be released late May 2008. Monoliths & Dimensions is practice in density, gravity and momentum.

Monoliths & Dimensions track listing:
Aghartha (17:34)
Big Church [megszentségteleníthetetlenségeskedéseitekért] (09:43)
Hunting & Gathering (Cydonia) (10:02)
Alice (16:21)

Yeah, this seems to be one of those bands that gots the talent and produce good stuff. They're just so hard to get into, because the music they make is so different from mostly anything, normally listened too.

I absolutley love them now, though.

I've heard a lot of people say bands like Sun are soothing and help put them too sleep.

I have Black One only. I have not had the opportunity to listen to it. I will get to it someday. I've been wondering what they sound like. I gave these guys a not so fair chance the first time around. Now that I have an album, I'll get to listening to 'em and come up with a conclusion on 'em.

Listening now to Monoliths & Dimensions. Very interesting stuff, like the good ol' Sunn O))) sound mixed with some new-era Earth and various kind of music, ranging from folk to cinema soundtracks.
Very enjoyable and quaite accessible stuff, not like Altar, but it hooks in a similar way.

This is one of the few releases Im going to wait until I have the LP to listen. ISunn isnt near my favorite band but they have a special meaning, plus vinyl has a thicker bottom end which is a big factor in their tunes.
