SOMA005 / The Iron Soul Of Nothing SUNN O))) meets NURSE WITH WOUND
Alchemical dialysis at IC Studio November & December 2007.
Procedures executed by Steven Stapleton & Colin Potter.
ØØVOID was originally recorded by Scott Reeder at Grandmaster Studio, Hollywood January 2000.
Produced by SUNN O))) & Scott Reeder.
Finally, available now as double vinyl set this is a must for fans of both of these legendary sonic travelers: Steven Stapleton & Colin Potter twist SUNN O)))’s 2000 album “ØØVOID” inside out on Nurse’s dissection table.
SUNN O))) “ØØVOID” CD/2LP available via Southern Lord Recordings sunn150, 2011 (originally released by Hydra Head & Rise Above, 2000)
"In 2007 we commissioned Nurse With Wound to re-work the masters of SUNN O)))’s second album “ØØVOID” to be included as a bonus CD on the Japanese reissue of said album released a year later on Daymare Recordings. We dug up the original 2" reels from the 2000 session, had Mell Dettmer bake the tapes, made the multitrack transfers and send the drive over to IC studios. The intial brief was to hopefully come up with to come up with something in the veiin of Nurse’s legendary Soliloquoy for Lilith set (my favorite release of the collective). What was returned was way beyond our expectations, completely transformed and rediscovered material, including highlighting formerly obscured vocals of the legendary Pete Stahl (Scream, Wool, Goatsnake). A vast creepy sonic journey some part drone/depth of SUNN O))), other part concrete weirdness of Nurse, third part just downright out there in surreality and obscure referencing." —Stephen O'Malley
