Laziest news article ever
Just Cut and Paste, Cut and Paste, while pre-ordering my Roadburn 2011 tickets.
edit: Added some text
Digging: Sea of Bones - The Earth Wants Us Dead
it will sure be interesting to see what bands they handpick, or will they just bring a refrigerator on
Digging: Tiamat - Clouds
Roadburn takes a historic turn when Sunn 0))) decide to not invite anyone an perform their whole discography in one show without intermission
would see that tbh
This is a great, great choice.
one of my life's ambitions is to see sunn o)))
im seeing them w/ boris
Yeah I've been wanting to see sunn for 3 years or more. They never play anywhere close and by close I mean 4 or 5 hours away.
I look at the taste of people who think Sunn is boring and it's not surprising at all.
I dont think they've ever been in the same state as me
I saw them live about a year ago...It was pretty boring...interesting for sure and I don't regret it, but undeniably boring.
This sounds awesome.
this will rule
Yeah, undoubtedly gonna kick ass.
lol at the avatar angel
i so wanna get into Sun O))) too bad i cant go to this
Digging: Pallbearer - Foundations of Burden
saw these a little while ago
boring as hell
spent about half an hour talking to Steven Wilson at that show though, massive win.
I would love to EXPERIENCE them live
wish i could go
There will be an additional afterburner event on Sunday, April 17, 2011.
o shit puns
This is a band i wanna like, but i try to listen and it bores me.
Couldnt b more drone of a pick
This years Roadburn, already featured the guys from Sunn O))) as Goatsnake and Thorr's Hammer played the festival, so it wasn't the biggest surprise that Sunn O))) would curate this year. Should be a great experience though. So now all they have to do is bring along Twilight, Orthodox, Black Breath, Boris, Eagle Twin and The Atlas Moth and I can die a happy man.
drone. drone.... drone. snooze.
how people like buzzing malfunctioning electronic noises is beyond me
sunn o))) are too good for u

Linkin Park is Grade 7 nostalgia, same with AJFA and An Ocean Between Us defined my summer of Grade 9,
so more nostalgia there
Baptized is a local band that just got signed to Roadrunner, little bit of bias there
Everything else there is fine, sorry elitist dude!
I don't see any reason to be embarrassed about Journal and Animal Collective? Wanna tell me why?
Just brings back good memories, and I can't help but sing a long to every song. *shrug*
Bottom line. I do not like Sunn O))). I wish I could, I'd love more music to get into. But I don't.
Maybe if I left my amp on with my guitar facing it and brought a generator downstairs and put up with
it long enough I'd appreciate it.
Oh, its not. I'm just saying it helps.
It's a lot more complicated than facing your guitar towards your amp. It's called sound engineering, what they do is not technically challenging of course but it's very creative and immersive. People always say how easy it is to play but actually creating a similar sound is pretty hard, a lot of bands blow out amps and ruin all kinds of shit. I remember hearing Sleep blew out some amps early on after they got signed cause they didn't know what they were doing.
But whatever, I'm glad drone will stay underground.
bleekill is cooler then thefantasticdangler
^you can seriously listen to this? I crumple a bag of chips in front of a microphone, mumble random lyrics, and stomp my foot. want me to record it for you? i'm very talented. not a lot of people can make it sound the same
Bleekill, I was joking. But the rest of your paragraph was interesting tbh. You are right Dryden,
buuuut You < Me < Him
lol canaCUNTman, go ahead and try it. There aren't a ton of successful drone bands out there, and it's not just because it's SO KVLT and UNDERGROUND. It's hard to do.
lol @ c word
But seriously, if it is that hard to do, is it really worth the effort?
I'd say so. If I ever made music it would be drone/doom, there is nothing more earth shaking and awe inspiring IMO. You aren't going to make money off it, unless you hit it "big" like Sunn or Earth. Dudes from Sunn are in a lot of other bands and Anderson runs Southern Lord records and O Malley is a graphic artist so even one of the most successful drone/metal bands doesn't make enough to live off.
"buuuut You < Me < Him"
you wish dish
I smee, I smee. IMO its very boring and dull, but to each their own. I respect them for doing what
they like, knowing they will barely make profit.
Dryden, you are soooooooo not cooool
u mad its okay
Yeah it's art, not entertainment.
u way more mad, its way more okay
exept im not mad uh oh
im ecstatic tho, so..........
ecstatic all the way
No, not mad
josh d mad
sunn o))) needs to come here
so, let me get this straight... a band whose style of music involves having no time signature, absolutely no format, zero marketable sound, nothing even remotely recognizeable to be able to differentiate between other bands in the genre, and having a following based solely on who can listen to the shittier band... is ACTUALLY what you find interesting?
'nothing even remotely recognizeable to be able to differentiate between other bands in the genre'
isn't that exactly what differentiates them from the other bands in the genre.
and yes.. interesting
find that VERY interesting. Can't wait to see these guys and the other 50+ bands at Roadburn 2011
I once recorded a burp and made it 8 times slower and it sounded like Sunn O)))
Sounds like gore vokills to me. Imagine that, Demilich gone drone, that would rule.
Enslaved, Neurosis, Dismember, Jarboe, Menace Ruine, Lustmord, Portal, Eyehategod, Autopsy, Jesu, Dragged Into Sunlight, Nadja, Boris, Ulver, In Slaughter Natives, raison d'etre, Have A Nice Life, Bolt Thrower, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble,Fungoid Stream, Blood of the black Owl, Jex Thoth, Incantation, YOB, Woods of Desolation, Sigh, Skepticism,Messiah led Candlemass, Funeral and Starkweather.
What a goddamn beautiful line up.
I'd sell my soul for this lineup.
that shit looks awesome
Id cut my dick off to see that show
fuuuuuuuuuuu balls i thought that was real for a second ugh
Enslaved, Neurosis, Jarboe, Eyehategod, Jesu, Nadja, Boris, Jex Thoth, and YOB were all at the this or last years Roadburn. Sounds like BallstotheWall needs to get a ticket.
Are you fuckin me?
Nope.. no fucking around here.
Sunn O))) pwns nubs. Only Doom metal band i heard of/like
@ The fantastic Dangler-
This is more creative than say.. The Acacia Strain.
It takes more patience and should be approached not as normal songwriting but as an experience.
Way harder to take time to listen to them.
I bring TAS 'cause I saw you ravin' about their new release
I never thought I would have wasted so much time on this site.
it's been 4 years man
I bring TAS 'cause I saw you ravin' about their new release
For the sole reason of how angry it is. It is more of a fun listen, and not normally the music I listen to. Obviously Sunn is way more creative and avante garde
'Strain is heavy, fun , and angry. It seems so wishy-washy to me though. Gets boring after a while
What the fuck is Sunn doing there? Overrated piece of shit band.
its no btbam thats for sure
