There's better out there

Each track sounds like the other so it's difficult to listen to the whole thing without getting a bit bored. Under the right circumstances, maybe if I was very very stoned for instance, it would be better - but in that case I'd probably want to listen to more interesting music. Flight of the Behemoth (the only other Sunn album I own) is better to these ears.

Honestly, I have to agree with lupin4. I downloaded this album and tried to give it a chance but i just couldn't get into it. It's pretty ewwwy.

Not for everyone

cosmonaut23

Sunn 0))) is not for everyone, that's for sure. Perhaps however, jgray.gkarma shouldn't attack what he can't understand. (Swearing demonstrates a lack of vocabulary, and you sound very much like an ignorant teenage troll yourself.) Anyhow, rewarding music for the right pair of ears - give it a chance.

Wank music for teens

jgray.gkarma

If you think this is great music, crawl up your own shriveled arse and beg for mercy. UR the George W. Bush, media manipulated , brain-dead masses that Satan hoped to exploit. Job well done minions. To all you fans, come on. Face the fact that you are impressionable twits with no basis for critical opinion. Masturbation is not an excuse for one hour plus of wasted listeners time. emusic subscribers, this is when you get pay back. Don't download this utter shite.

Music for destroying the Earth

The earth is broken up and reduced to shards under a black sky.

I am laughing at how extreme all these reviews have been for this unique music. Love 'em or hate 'em --- they are true artists who have found their own niche. This is definitely the most evil ambient music I've ever come across...it would sound great as the soundtrack for a horror movie.

This is wonderful heavy drone band stuff, it's perfect for me to listen to while negotiating traffic on my bicycle. There was an "introductory" article in the Sunday Seattle Times (5-27), of all places, about drone metal. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we have to get our information in a variety of places--when I listened to this, I was hooked. Nothing is just noise; if it has a structure, then it's just something waiting for an (appropriate) audience.

The Noise of Neu!

By Philip Sherburne, Contributor

No history of electronic music would be complete without a chapter dedicated to Kraftwerk, the German quartet who introduced synthesizers and chugging, "motorik" rhythms to pop music - and in so doing laid the groundwork for techno (and left no small mark upon hip-hop as well, given that their "Trans-Europe Express" was heavily sampled for Afrika Baambaata's "Planet Rock"). Fewer genealogists of electronica remember to include the contributions of a group called NEU!, but the… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Sunn’s first release, The Grimmrobe Demos, contains three lengthy tracks — ranging from 15 to 21 minutes — all in their patented, Earth-inspired low-end drone style. This is not music to sing along to, to dance to, to tap your foot to, or to do anything else but sit back and let it envelop and/or wash over you. Some listeners will find Sunn’s style unbearably slow-paced and sludgy, while others will find it powerful and hypnotic (at least under the right circumstances). In terms of Sunn’s overall discography this is not a bad place to start, but their next album, 00 Void, covers the same basic territory with slightly better production and is also easier to find, as this disc was issued in a limited edition of just 500 copies. – William York
