"So man, what's new for music today?"
"Eh, not much. Pylar, that Spanish band, they just dropped a new album that takes the drone genre to incredible heights once again, incorporating chanting, string instruments, horns, native percussion, and intricate, jazz-like drumming into a massive, doomy core. All with artwork and lyrics that allude to ancient shamanism and druidism as well."
"Meh, drone is so boring. When's that new Morbid Angel coming out?"

Immerse thyself.

Continuing to impress, I maintain that these guys are one of the best drone bands at the moment. It's amazing just how many ingredients are in the final recipe here: chants, strings, horns, native percussion, crazy off-beat drumming... it's almost like "jazz drone" or something haha. Wicked shit

Wow, great recommendation. I bought it earlier tonight and just gave it my first spin (so to speak). Not sure I've ever heard anything like it. Jazz drone is good a moniker as I can think of. I guess the closest band I'd compare them to would be Godspeed You! Black Emperor, but only in parts. I love finding weird shit like this. Thanks.

I think their previous record was more balanced. Still this one is amazing and for sure one of the best drone records this year.
Also, if you guys are not familiar, pylar shares a member with another Spanish band, named Orthodox. They also play some sort of doom-jazz, although it is more jazzy and not droney? It is a crazy band, and also apparently shares thematic concepts with pylar. They had an album and an Ep this year.

I'm reminded most of Sunn O)))'s Monoliths & Dimensions with this band, in the sense that it's drone with the addition of a ton of nonmetal influences like opera, folk, classical, jazz, and so on. Similar idea, basically, and even a bit of a similar sound at points, but I'd say Pylar take that principle far higher than Sunn O))) did with that album

Sunn O))) is one of those bands I've heard very little of. The only album I own by them is Black One and it's a tough sell. For me anyway. And to be honest, I don't think I ever made it through the entire album. I should give them another chance though. Well, maybe.

Sunn O))) gradually began incorporating more non drone elements into their sound as their career progressed, I would say. The early releases are pretty uncompromising "pure drone," so to speak, but Black One incorporates a considerable black metal and dark ambient edge and M&D gets really crazy with all the guest musicians and additional instruments (bassoon, clarinet, fucking conch shell )
It's still a very tough, demanding listen, but overall I'd say Sunn O)))'s later-day material is more accessible than their early work

I kinda noticed it after I did that, honestly, that similarity. I'm sure the big Chilean-Swedish teddy bear won't mind me paying homage though

No, I don't think he will care.
