Sun O)))


Pronounced Sun and named after the Sunn amplifier (whose logo is the band's name) with only two core members, Sunn seeks to destroy all that you hold sacred through despair. Largely experimental, most of Sunn's work is drone with metal influence: played slow and heavy, in low tunings with resonant feedback to create desolate, apocalyptic soundscapes. Sunn often invites guests to collaborate on their albums, often resulting in strangely unique songs as they encourage their guest artists to experiment as they please.

There are no real words that can describe Sunn, a long list of adjectives perhaps, all synonymous with horror. If possible, listen to the following track with headphones in the dark. Let it play through, don't skip ahead: it's meant to be taken in together, Sunn doesn't feature verses and choruses like typical songs. Understandable, this music is not for everyone; most particularly those who find their nightmares to be, well, nightmarish.
