From Blabbermouth -
According to MTV.com, former SOUNDGARDEN guitarist Kim Thayil has contributed guitar work to a collaboration between American drone kings SUNN O))) and Japanese sludge masters BORIS. Thayil, who appears on the song "Blood Swamp", also wrote the liner notes for the album, which comes out October 31 and is called "Altar". A vinyl-only version includes the bonus track "Her Lips Were Wet With Venom", which features EARTH frontman Dylan Carlson. Other guests include Joe Preston (HIGH ON FIRE, EARTH, MELVINS), Steve Moore (EARTH) and Jesse Sykes, and other songs include "Etna", "N.L.T." and "Akuma No Kuma".

Should be interesting.

It's not a split as such, rather the guys from Boris and SunnO))) wrote and recorded the songs together, with the other musicians (Kim, Dylan, etc) making guest appearances.
I think.

I thought this was already well known. Maybe BM is just late as usual.

Actualy its been on there for a few days, just I didn't see anything about it here so I thought I'd mention it.

Oh ok.

Boris have made some stuff like Sunn before, I'm not too familiar with their other stuff but Amplifier Worship is really like Sunn.

Been lookin foward to this for a while now, sounds so awesome. First I heard of Thayil being on it though.


They totally stole that idea from the Melvins and Lustmord on Pigs Of The Roman Empire.

No, its not like a split, its more a collaboration, ie Sun Baked Snow Cave, which was Boris with Merzbow. Greg has said that Dylan Carlson will be on one of the tracks as well...which isn't available on the leaked version, but will be available on the 2xcd version & the 3xLP version.

I just listened to the leaked version, it's good although I can't seem to pinpoint where Kim Thayill plays.

Everyone's going gaga over Sunn O))) and Boris. Am I the only one intrigued by the fact that Kim Thayil will be involved?

You're not the only one, that was what interested me in the first place. I've always hoped Kim would do something like this, to really expand on the sludgeyness of Soundgarden songs like Mailman and Slaves and Bulldozers.
