The new Sunn O))) album is amazing. All their old stuff has been boring Earth-worship (that had been done before, by Earth), but the new one (Black 1) is a crazy-ass black-metal influenced grimm-as-fuck record. I'm really impressed. The guitar is a lot more dynamic, the atmosphere is a lot spookier, and the dude from Xasthur does amazing vox.

You've also got my gender wrong which isn't helping things.

oh yeah that Diplo mix is pretty good. I love the phat-ass beats he added to Cybotron.

The new record is very different.

The track w/ Oren Ambarchi guesting is amazing.

Thomas, wha'da'ya think of Fall Heads Roll? Not up there with The Unutterable or the dark brooding masterpiece Bend Sinister, but it's slowly growing on me. More like a straight-up rock record. But I miss the very wicked "out there-ness" of other offerings by the band.

is the oren track on the sunn record melodic at all?

--- Original message by ddohnggo on Oct 9, 2005 05:04 PM

The Oren contribution isn't really melodic in the usual sense, but it's very interesting.

The entire record is actually very melodic, much more so than their previous works. The skull-crushing doom guitar has been dropped in favor of a more melodic, needling, buzzsaw-style guitar, a la black metal. The bass guitars still provide throbbing subcurrents of bass drone but it's not as much of a centrepiece as on the previous albums.

The vocals, by Wrest of Leviathan, are fucking amazing. They were recorded in a coffin (no joke) and they sound absolutely tortured, like a zombie screaming and muttering Satanic incantations. Totally awesome.

There is tons of buzzing fucked-up ambience, but thankfully, it's all rumbling and ominous and low-frequency, not piercing and screechy. Frankly I'm sure there is a lot of computer manipulation, but it's really hard to tell. I'm listening to it now, and track 3 sounds like a jackhammer, an industrial-grade air conditioner, a bass guitar, and a bizarre tone generator with recurring guitar riffs with vocals by the aforementioned zombie.
