I've got Altar, the collab with Boris, and I love it. But if I want a purely Sunn O))) album, where should I start?
they all sound the same.
(get black one).
the flight of the behemoth is fucking immense and does loads, as where the white albums are bit more, er, white noise. the grim robe demos arent great. i havent heard the black album.
is it all really doomy? Coz Altar isn't.
I adore them but I really don't think they cut it on record to be honest.
The secoond White album and the Black one are the best. Grimrobe Demos - I think it is called that - is good too. BUT really, they are a band you need to see live, there really is no comparison unless you have six smoke machines and a couple of Sunn amps.
associate that noise smoke machines make - the CHTTTSSSHHH - with Sunn. I can't wait to see them again at ATP. It's gonna be carnage. Hee hee.
total torture in a record. Bliss.
is my favourite, but black one is almost as good, very fucking scary.also get whichever of the 'white' albums has 'my wall' on too, just for julian cope's bizarre poetry.
I listened to it and didn't consider it to be music.
Get Flight of the Behemoth, it's produced by Masami Akita who also drums on it which always makes things more interesting.
