At the end of this post, you can hear a sneak preview of Sunn O)))’s collaborative album with Ulver.
The end product, Terrestrials, will be released February 4 through Southern Lord.
Says a release on the collaboration:
“Oslo, Norway, August 10th, 2008. Following their 200th gig, playing before 2,000 people at the Øya festival, Sunn O))) teamed up with Norwegian legends Ulver at their Oslo studio, Crystal Canyon. They recorded three ‘live in improvisation’ pieces, starting that evening and ending at dawn, as Northern sunlight seeped in through the windows.”
The following is part of a track called “Eternal Return.”
Is it awesome? If you don’t like vocals. And melody. And more than one note in your music.
For some reason, I used to think Sunn O))) were awesome. Now, I can’t listen to them without wishing I had no ears.
