Featuring Stephen O’Malley (formerly of Khanate and Burning Witch) and Greg Anderson (of Goatsnake and Thorr’s Hammer), Sunn O))) are an experimental drone metal, ‘power ambient’ band, hailing from Seattle, US.

The pair has made some of the most forward-thinking and innovative drone-based music of the 20th/21st century, pushing the genre to more expansive and also more popular territories. Influenced by Earth and early Melvins, they are widely regarded as one of the loudest bands on the planet, incorporating everything from extreme black metal, dark ambient music to noise rock in creating their unique sound. Through heavily detuned guitars, slow tempos, and powerful distortion, they create huge soundscapes and darkly eerie atmospheres that are drenched in feedback.

Initially begun as an Earth tribute act, the duo began writing their own music, before releasing their first recordings, “The Grimmrobe Demos” (1998) and “øø Void” (2000) on Hydra Head Records subsidiary, Double H Noise Industries. These initial recordings were predominantly made just using guitars, but with 2002’s “Flight of the Behemoth,” they utilized an element of percussion to expand their sound. They continued this exploration with their next two releases, “White1” (2003) and “White2” (2004).

With “Black One,” released in 2005, they began incorporating electronics into the mix and went on to push their music to new territories through the collaborative album, “Altar,” that was made alongside Japanese doom-metal band, Boris. As well as working with Boris, they have also collaborated with noise pioneer, Nurse With Wound, with 2011’s “The Iron Soul of Nothing.” In their 2009 album, “Monoliths and Dimensions,” they featured a Vietnamese woman’s choir alongside french horns. Again building upon their musical repertoire, they collaborated with singer-songwriter, Scott Walker in 2014, on the album, “Soused,” which has received widespread critical acclaim.
