Sunn 0 )))/Void/Southern Lord Records/2011 CD Re-Issue Review

  Sunn 0 ))) are a band from California that plays a very dark and experimental form of drone/doom metal and this is a review of their 2000 album "Void" which was re-issued by Southern Lord Records during the year of 2011.

There are no drums presented on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some dark/drone/doom metal riffs that dominate throughout the recording.

Rhythm guitars are all sludge/drone/doom metal riffs that are very dark and slow sounding mixed in with a good amount of distortion and there are no guitar leads or solos present on this recording.

Vocals on this recording which are very rare are mostly ritualistic chants, while the violins when they are briefly utilized bring a very dark and avant garde feeling to the music, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion this was a great album from Sunn 0))) and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "NN 0))" and "Ra At Dusk". RECOMMENDED BUY.
