The 1 Hundred - Sunn O))) - Monoliths and Dimensions

Sunn O)) - Monoliths & Dimensions (Southern Lord, 2009) // New CD

Primarily considered a metal band, Seattle's Sunn O))) is also about stretching the genre to new heights and depths... generally depths of tone in their early work that featured low tune riffs and drones that seemed to emerge from the the universe's creation. On Monoliths & Dimensions the group collaborates with everyone from Australian experimenter Oren Ambarchi to composer Eyvind Kang to deliver a work that balances anger, beauty, despair, and grace in equal measure. Closing track "Alice" is perhaps the most stirring and epic track you'll find on an album played by guys obscured by fog machines and wearing druid robes.
