Doom/drone metal. If it should be in the "other" forum, let me know please.

I love Akuma No Kuma, with Boris.

Discuss.

I like them sometimes....i like the amplifiers better i had a chance to try one once and it was beast. Ive heard good things about the others as well. But ive never seen the band live and any recordings other than studio sound like garbage due to the extreme bass. But its good for ambient music.

This band fucking pwns HARD.

Never before has dodgy feedback been used so well.


The Libations of Samhain (sp?) has got to be the scariest, well done song a doom metal (of any sub genre) can do.

Good band, but not really something that you sit down and listen to. Really good background/ambient stuff.

Haha, I used to try and pronounce in "Sun zero bracket bracket bracket"

At first I thought it was, "Sunn (I stretched the n's) Oh (as in the letter) Left Bracket Left Bracket Left Bracket"

I really agree on the background music. It helps you concentrate.
#14
I like them a good bit. Granted, I only have one song by JUST Sunn O))) ("Sin Nanna"), but I have "Altar", and I enjoy it a good bit.

It actually got me more into Boris than it did Sunn O))), though.

I have four Boris albums to no full albums by them. But, like I said, I like them a good bit. I like the creepy vibes.

Because they worship Earth.

"Sunn O))) is named after the Sunn amplifier brand, whose logo includes a circle next to the "SUNN" banner with waves heading off to the right (the band use this logo in the cover art of many releases); a literal interpretation of the logo produces "Sunn O))). In interviews Stephen O'Malley has stated the name was also chosen as a play on the name of the band Earth, pioneers of drone music throughout the 1990's, reasoning that Sunn O))) "revolved around Earth." However, before the band members moved to Los Angeles the duo were called Mars, in another tribute to Earth."

IMO, Sun O))) is pretty talentless and has no appeal to me. IMO, this is not Metal AT ALL.

Here is Sun O))) sped up: clicky

lol Sounds like an old horror movie.

Sunn O))) are awesome, I really dig the whole Noise and Drone thing. As my screen name suggests :P

i never liked these guys, but now that i've been getting into a lot of atmospheric stuff (BM stuff like Xasthur and Leviathan) i figured i'd try them again. what's a good alubm to start out with?

EDIT: people don't diss slipknot cause it isn't music, they diss it cause it sucks.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

lol I know that you secretly want to be the ninth member.


And regarding Sunn O))), I understand how one would listen to it for atmosphere. I guess it's good that there are people willing to do something different and form bands like Sunn O))). Variety is always good in music.

Any good songs as a first listen?


Akuma no Kuma is my favorite off of Altar (with Boris).

I'm trying to find the other albums off of torrents but honestly it's hard. I've had White 2 in uTorrent for about a week now and it's at 70%. Not enough seeds.

The music sucks but hey the money would be good.


I just got Sunn O)))'s Altar at Best Buy (i'm amazed too) what would be another good album by them for me to buy????
#35
My favourite Sunn is White 2...so I usually recommend that one but Black One is good if you like the heavier (well, more droney and shorter) songs

I'm truly sorry if I sound like an asshole for saying this but I honestly don't see any underlying genius at all in Drone Metal. I've heard 2 albums by Sunn O))) which are Flight of the Behemoth and Black One. Let me tell you this goes nowhere musically there is no song structure just monotonous, pointless, droning. I have heard some Black Metal albums that I can appreciate the atmosphere but this is just too much. What competent band plays 6 chords in one whole 20 minute song. I've heard Thergothon and Nortt and even though they weren't my cup of tea I could appreciate the atmosphere created by the crappy production and the way they play but this "music" goes nowhere, it just drones on and on. It's way too slow, there are no riffs to speak off only horribly recorded chords which last minutes for no apparent reason. There is no drumming to look forward to, no distinguishable bass lines, no guitar solos, and vocals for the most part appear to be absent. When there are vocals they're usually horribly delivered shrieks. Perhaps its just me but I like my music to have a point, to go somewhere and not just drone on and on. I'd much rather listen to Mortician or AxCx than this "music".
I realized I was god when I prayed and saw that I was talking to myself.
#39
You're comparing Sunn O))) to Anal Cunt?

While I respect you're opinion and understand where you're coming from, that's just ridiculous.
#40
What I meant to say was that while both Sunn O))) and Anal **** suck I would much rather listen to Anal **** because they do more than just drone on for 30 minutes. While we're on this topic I'll add that it becomes more shameful for Sunn O))) when you take that into consideration that at least Anal **** meant to suck. Hell, quite honestly the only thing I like about Sunn O))) is their lyrics, but as far as instrumentals are concerned these guys go nowhere musically.
