Here we have a reissue of one of the classic Sunn O))) albums, on which the cowled duo set out to go as dark as they possibly could. To this effect, Black One features guest appearances from Oren Ambarchi, John Weise, Wrest and Malefic: the latter was locked in a coffin and his claustrophobic screams recorded. Heavy. Gatefold re-press on Southern Lord.
9/10 Jack Customer review, 30th January 2016
Sun O))) gives this world of weak humans something beautiful; most of us will never properly grasp such beauty. Unless you're familiar with the sort of elitist soundscapes created by outfits like Lustmord and Pan Sonic, you won't understand the amazing things some of these "metal" guys are capable of doing. Black One takes all the accepted cliches and throws them out of the window. Cookie-monster vocals are the only cue as to where these guys come from, aside from that it's a long, long way off from your burnout older brother's Venom LPs.
