Sunn O))) & Ulver - Terrestrials (2014) ALBUM STREAMING


The versatile emperor of doom metal drone Sunn O))) collaborated with the even more diversified Norwegian experimental black metal ambient neoclassical and so on combo Ulver on this three-track album "Terrestrials" that was released early 2014 by Southern Lord. It was initially conceived between 2008 and 2012, and one can wonder why this rather short full length (around 35 minutes) took so long to see the dark of night.

Strings, horns, drums, organs and even Fender Rhodes, on the magnificent, elegiac and surprisingly delightful "Eternal Return", have been added here and there to the now highly recognizable chthonian near impenetrable drones created by Sunn O)))'s guitars and bass of Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson. Nothing new for all the collaborators involved in this project but an interesting collective work and an ultimately gratifying sonic journey anyways.
