noisician

doesn't the fact that there is a track named "O))) Bow 1" (which would be pronounced like "oh bow 1") ... mean that the name of the band can also be pronounced as "sun oh" ?? just askin'

sufficiently strange

Earth Crusher

This is the kind of "music" that shifts the tectonic plates. Beware, this is unlike anything else out there except for old Earth.

Essential doom drone experimental music (rock?). Enough said.

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 two discs, The Grimmrobe Demos and 00 Void, established the group’s droning, bass-heavy “power ambient” doom style and showed that the bandmembers had spent plenty of time listening to and learning from their Earth records. With Flight of the Behemoth, they begin with that same basic foundation (in fact, the first two tracks are impossible to distinguish from ones on their earlier albums), but for the first time also branch out to create something new, something that goes beyond any sort of mere Earth worship. This is partially true of the last track, “F.W.T.B.T.,” which employs a drummer and a vocalist for the first time on any Sunn recording, but more so on the third and fourth ones, “O))) Bow 1″ and “O))) Bow 2.” Given the once-over by special guest mixer/legendary noise artist Merzbow, Sunn’s hypnotic, slow-as-molasses feedback drones slowly evolve into a wall of distorted, swirling (although not completely overdriven) noise on these tracks, creating the sensation of being slowly sucked into a black hole while a symphony of chain saws plays in the background. Sound like fun? Well, needless to say, this music is not for everybody, but this collaboration has yielded something truly immense and frightening, bridging the gaps between dark ambient/drone music and electronic noise, between doom metal and avant-garde electro-acoustic sound. This is a remarkable album, recommended for brave connoisseurs of any of the above genres. – William York
