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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Bleekill
August 18th 2010

832 Comments


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.

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?

hmm... interesting

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

@ 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.

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
