Sunn O)))) formed in March 1998 in Los Angeles. A synthesis of diverse: drone, ur, noise, metal, minimalism/maximalism; supported by a cast of collaborators, O))) has two core members: Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson. For twenty years, Sunn O))) have been challenging the way we think about music. From 1999’s The Grimmrobe Demos to 2015’s Kannon, core members Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson have forged connections between the worlds of Metal, Drone, Contemporary Composition, Jazz and Minimalism with startling results while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density and weight. Recently, Sunn O))) released their first full-length LP in six years, Kannon (2015), with its roots in recent collaborations with Norway’s Ulver (Terrestrials) and Scott Walker (Soused). The current live line-up, consisting of Stephen O’Malley, Greg Anderson, Attila Csihar, Stephen Moore and Tos Nieuwenhuizen continue live activities with dates across North America, Australia and Europe with remarkable performances at some of their favourite venues, as well as performing in new cultural spaces such as Italy’s impressive cultural complex Labrinto Della Masone, Germany’s Ruhrtriennale Festival of Arts, at The Barbican, London and Manchester International Festival being a few fine examples. All hail.
