***THIS EVENT WILL BE INCREDIBLY LOUD AND BEYOND ANY NORMAL CONCERT-GOING EXPERIENCE. A TRUE SONIC ASSAULT VIA MASSIVE LOW END AND A WALL OF AMPLIFICATION. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR A CASUAL CONCERT ATTENDANT. WE RECOMMEND (AND WILL LIKELY PROVIDE) YOU WITH EARPLUGS, AND WILL MORE THAN HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU USE THEM. ENJOY THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND PERFORMANCE, BUT BE AWARE AND SAFE IN DOING SO***
The massive wave-pools Sunn O))) create are more akin to the precisely oscillating soundscapes of minimalist drone composer Tony Conrad than some flint-fingered pseudo-Sabbath acolytes.
Tapping into complex compositional practices without ditching metal's compelling visual aesthetic, the L.A./Paris duo excavates and expands the genre, remapping its coordinates with the lowest frequencies imaginable, in the process mutating its compositional scope: an insistent, visceral buzz transforms sludge drifts into chiropractic chords that strike like thunder cracks. Loud though rarely harsh, the sounds start low, intensifying incrementally until they've transformed the entire listening area into a dank chamber teeming with elegant sustain. Adding to the sensory overload of the Sunn O))) experience, the duo obscures themselves in clouds of thick fog, dressing in hooded robes, periodically thrusting guitars toward the sky. Sunn O))) will be featuring Attila Csihar (vocals, Mayhem) on this date, and will be playing alongside Atlanta's Dead In The Dirt.
