Sunn O))) - New Album 'Pyroclasts' Arrives In October, Details Unveiled

Sunn O))) will release new album Pyroclasts through Southern Lord on October 25th.The Pyroclasts is the result of a daily practice which was regularly performed each morning, or evening during the two-week Life Metal sessions at Electrical Audio during July 2018, when all of the days musical participants would gather and work through a 12 minute improvised modal drone at the start and or end of the day's work. Short album preview and other details can be found below.

The piece performed was timed with a stopwatch and tracked to two inch tape, it was an exercise and a chance to dig into a deep opening or closing of the days session in a deep musical way with all of the participants. To connect/reconnect, liberate the creative mind a bit and greet each other and the space through the practice of sound immersion. The players across the four pieces of Pyroclasts are Tim Midyett, T.O.S., Hildur Guðnadóttir, and as always Stephen O'Malley & Greg Anderson.

Pyroclasts track listing:

01. Frost
02. Kingdoms
03. Ampliphædies
04. Ascension

Samplng genres like drone, ambient and noise are amusing to me. It's the equivalent of hearing a single chord or beat in other metal genres unless there is more shown or at least some changing movement.

No one
Hmmm, even after life metal I felt like the drone had gone on long enough.

The search for the brown note continues.
So many chips on the world's shoulder. Low on ketchup.
