Sunn O))): Frost (C)

The second creative endeavor for the year from the great Sunn O))) is actually a "sister" or "shadow" album to the very much immersive Life Metal, released last April. Pyroclasts comes out October 25th, 2019 via Southern Lord.

Recorded in July 2018 by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio during the same sessions as Life Metal, the upcoming Pyroclasts is comprised of four improvisational pieces that were the band's daily twelve-minute practice, "timed with a stopwatch and tracked to two inch tape," as the participants absorbed themselves into complete creative mode.

For these four tracks Sunn O)))'s steady core of Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson is accompanied by Tim Midyett, T.O.S. and Hildur Guðnadóttir.

Opening piece, Frost (C) offers a solid foretaste of what the new record has to offer, and like everything else in this forward thinking group's body of work, it is exquisite and full on enveloping.

Sunn O))) will be very soon embarking on a European tour, with guests Caspar Brötzmann Bass Totem, Carl Michael Von Hausswolff, Runhild Gammelsæter & Lasse Marhaug duo, Puce Mary and Anna Von Hausswolff on selected dates.
