NEWS UPDATE


497-1.jpg


497-2.jpg

SUNN O))) recently completed battles in UK, Ireland and Athens, to great success. I would like to thank all of the people who came to witness us, especially in Newcastle, Belfast, London and Athens. The shows were our best ever! SUNN O))) performed as a power trio of guitars & moog, with some guest appearances. Hail to McGrail, Rehberg & Csihar for their sonic blessings... Rehberg busted his laptop in London while swinging it behind Anderson's amps for feedback!!!!!!! Csihar invoked gods of wavelava at every instance and McGrail brought down thunderbolts, and brought up boiling energy for Leviathan in the case of the Bristol feedbath. Massive amounts of thank and respects to the kind folks who put us on and put us up. Also last but certainly not least, a high level of respect to Tos and Andrew for their work as crew, this sort of thing couldnt happen with out you all. Respect to Tony Sylvester and Savage Pencil for their help and work on everything. Fuck ouzo, hail DoomLord.

On December 9th SUNN O))) recorded our first Peel Session, sadly posthumously of Peel, but commissioned by him before his passing. SUNN O))) "CANDLEWOLF OF THE GOLDEN CHALICE" (19'30") PEEL SESSION broadcasts live on 21st December 2004 on BBC1. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/alt/johnpeel/ for more details. This track is a fusion of live old and new SUNN O))) approaches, with power trio riffing combined with a significantly blissful drone section featuring harmonium & tamboura! The track should be archived on the BBC1 site for some time, and we intend to release it as a tour only 12" in the near future (probably for the march-april dates).

SUNN O))) has been tracking for the next album, BLACK1, at Scott Reeder's studio in the CA desert. Expect dowtuned primitive sci-fi weirdness. We plan to have this mixed by summertime and a release sometime in the early autumn if all continues to go well.

I spent 3 days at Southern Studio in London last week working on the next GINNUNGAGAP release, together with the talents of Alexander Tucker and Anthony Sylvester. This record will most likely be titled "Remeindre" and will be released on Allison Schnackenberg's "Latitudes" imprint sometime before summer. 4 tracks of indelible ambient waveform were completed. The instrumentation this time is entirely acoustic except a farfisa, and the mood is some sort of deep eastern river crossing procession. Absolute bliss.

LOTUS EATERS first 7" has now been reissued by Drone (see below). We are still in the production phase of the "Wormwolf" album as well... should see the light sometime in 2005.

KHANATE have suffered a few setbacks over the autumn including a broken leg and an arrest. Nevertheless, we have been preparing a new MLP of material titled "Capture & Release" for Hydrahead. The CD version of this should come with the long-awaited "Dead" videoclip, produced by Alan Dubin. We're moving into a more tonal field with this material... expect two long tracks of unorthodox harmony amongst the savageness.

Hail to DarkThrone for telling the ALARM awards to eat a bag of shit. Their integrity is something admirable which we should all keep in mind.

More later.

Touch the pure sound of sadness, transcendence and lust:
Three new Drones out November 2004

DR-69 · OPION SOMNIUM – As they fly into darkness, only black feathers remain to wipe away our tears
OPION SOMNIUM is a one man project from Santa Fe, New Mexico, that is fascinated with birds being “divine creatures” and focusing on themes of eternity and death. The breathtaking drones of OPION SOMNIUM spread a sad, melancholic atmosphere, which is at the same time full of beauty. The compositions are based on instruments played in real time, i.e. viola, accordeon and piano, but also on floating electronics. Both tracks on this EP sound ethereal and spacy, softly feedbacking & overtunic, and are intensively emotional. Maybe this music exists in this small area beneath despair, where you can find beauty and grandeur.

Filed under: deep melancholic beauty-drones
VIOLET / BLUE VINYL. HAND EMBOSSED COVERS WITH METALLIC LETTERS AND PAINTED STENCIL MOTIVES ON FRONT & BACK, EACH BACKSIDE ALSO INCLUDES A SEGMENT OF A LARGER, HANDWRITTEN POEM.NUMBERED ED.


DR-70 · HUM – Ether Rider
Drone Records is proud to present HUM, another newcomer from the growing Russian experimental scene, who already released a few most promising self-made CDrs on his own label. HUM (originally a reduction from “hum-an”) defines his work as a representation of emptiness and sound, which is derived from tantric traditions. The basic intention is the “restoration of mythological time”. This release that is dedicated to “magic flight”, enlights with full vibrating “cosmic” drones on the first track ETHER RIDER, at the same time sounding like a swarm of low-pitched insects. The second piece CRUCIBLE is more loop structured & noisy, with low-fi mechanized rumblings, filled with organic substances... two fantastic sound samples that show the ability of drone sound to lead your inner mind into the center of nothingness.

BLACK VINYL. MINIMAL DESIGNED WHITE COVERS WITH B/W PHOTO

DR-71 · STABAT MORS – Ich bin so wild nach deinem Erdbeermund
STABAT MORS is the name of an amazing noise project from Germany, working on a basis of certain thematical concepts or philosophical ideas. The name of the group is derived from “Stabat Mater- Passion Music. This EP uses an autobiographic text from Klaus Kinski, the legendary “daemonic” actor, as an inspiration, “to transform his greed for life musically”. On this release, there are two pieces (named “DIE FRAU DES DIREKTORS” and “KREPIERT”) with minimal elements. Piercing, low feedback functions as main drone source being enriched with other elements, such as repeated metal feedback sounds, low analogue noise drones below, a female voice in the background citing Kinski, and an extremely distorted accordeon... All in all, what you find here is a fragmented atmosphere, not really loud, but nerve-attacking, sounding like a wild animal shortly before exploding.
