Don’t you love the energy of metal concerts? The sweat, the heat, that stench of booze and BO, the feeling that the world might end as the mosh pit opens up? Doesn’t it make you feel alive?
Well, forget about all that shit, because Sunn O))) are heading out on a spring tour! Prepare to listen to slow booming drone metal surrounded by high people.
All joking aside, there’s a certain spectacle to Sunn O))) that’s kind of fun — the robes, the slowness, and massive wall of vibrations that come off of the band at once. More so, the line-up for this tour apparently includes Attila Csihar, Tos Nieuwenhuizen, and Steve Moore (Earth, Stebmo), which should be cool. But the caffeine/weed balance is hard to strike, so be careful. Too much of the latter, you fall asleep; too much of the former, and you realize you’re not really interested.
Feel the BMMMMMMM at one of the following dates. Sunn O)))’s Kannon is out now on Southern Lord; listen to it here.
