Limited edition pressing of only 1100, 500 & 500 respectively! The drone-duo of Greg Anderson and Stephen O’Malley recruit the legendary rock producer Steve Albini for the most incredible results of Sunn O)))'s career thus far. Visceral streams of droned out metal guitar turned into atmospheric compositions with the help of Silkworm’s Tim Midyett on aluminium-neck bass, T.O.S. Nieuwenhuizen on electronics, pipe organ from minimalist composer Anthony Pateras, and Icelandic cellist and composer Hildur Guðnadóttir singing verses from ancient Aztec poets!
For Fans Of: Sleep, Steve Albini, Uniform, The Body
"New Sunn O))) album recorded by Steve Albini. It is fully realised and completely real. The record was produced by the core of Stephen and Greg and arranged by the greater constellation Sunn O))). Paintings by visual artist Samantha Keely Smith graciously adorn the sleeve and provide a perfect suitable mask to the proceedings. They collide ideas of 19th century romanticism and late 20th abstract expressionism (mysticism) with Sunn O)))’s approach to metal (via reference points of Arbo, Turner, Delville, Richter, Turrel, Wou-Ki). Photographer Ronald Dick shot them in baths of light colour representing depth of sound pressure in the work."
