oh, how i wish i could teleport to all the places that i want to be! Sunn O))) are amazing, especially in concert. i highly recommend seeing this if you are able to. they put on a very dramatic ritual metal performance. O’Malley and Anderson are super nice guys as well
Sunn O))) plays “Drone Metal” sometimes referred to as stoner metal. It is a genre that was created or made famous by the band Earth, which i have also been posting news about lately. Sunn O)))’s take on it is to play one note on electric guitar, and let it sustain for a long time. as this note lingers in the air, its harmonics morph and synchronize, producing other tones and sounds. this is enhanced by the interaction between guitar and amp, as the guitar is moved closer to or further from the amp, feedback and resonant frequencies come into play. it’s a very powerful effect, which is why i suggest hearing it live. it is best experienced LOUD!
