Sunn O))) are back with Pyroclasts, their second full-length release of 2019.
Much like their previous album, Life Metal, the new album was recorded and mixed by noted producer Steve Albini, who has worked with the likes of Nirvana and the Pixies. The LP features four longform tracks, including the previously released “Frost (C),” all recorded during the same session as Life Metal.
“Pyroclasts is the result of a daily practice which was regularly performed each morning or evening during the two-week Life Metal session at Electrical Audio during July 2018,” Sunn O))) explained in a press statement. “All of the days musical participants would gather and work through a 12-minute improvised modal drone at the start and or end of the day’s work.”
