Sunn O Monoliths and Dimensions

Main Entry: Sunn O)))

Date Of Release: May 26th, 2009

Format: CD / 2xLP

Label: Southern Lord (US) / Daymare Recordings (Japan)

Monoliths & Dimensions is the sixth studio album by the avant-garde drone doom band Sunn O))). The album was created and recorded over a period of two years and features the collaborations of composer Eyvind Kang, Australian guitar player Oren Ambarchi, Hungarian vocalist Attila Csihar, Dylan Carlson from the drone band Earth, and trombonists Julian Priester and Stuart Dempster. Also present is an upright bass trio; French and English horns; harp and flute duo; piano, brass, reed, and string ensembles; and a Viennese woman’s choir led by composer and vocalist Jessika Kenney.

However, the band said, “The album is not Sunn O))) with strings or metal-meets-orchestra material.” The band took an approach concentrating on more of allusion toward the timbre of feedback and the instruments involved, so the piece is really illusory, beautiful and not entirely linear, stating, “[The end product is] the most musical piece we’ve done, and also the heaviest, [most] powerful, and most abstract set of chords we’ve laid to tape.

Follow-up to Sunn O)))’s 2005 LP “Black One”, which features appearances by Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Oren Ambarchi, Dylan Carlson (Earth) and many others.
