Sunn O))) – 3: Flight Of The Behemoth (2002)

Some lovely head-buzzing drones from the earlier portion of the Sunn O))) discography. “Mocking Solemnity” and “Death Becomes You” are excellent offerings, as is the uhhh, interesting take on Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, which is of course, completely and utterly unrecognisable.

The biggest drawback with this album is the middle two collab tracks. I love Sunn O))), and I love Merzbow, but fuck if these works are not irritating as fuck. The second part, namely “O)))Bow 2” is probably a little more tolerable, but in general, these two tracks are a massive detraction from the excellence of the album.
