Flight Of The Behemoth

Flight Of The Behemoth by Sunn O)))
Released: Jan 2002
Label: Southern Lord
While Sunn O)))'s brilliance can really only be understood when the mountainous waves of guitar drone that make up their turgid pieces are permanently damaging your hearing in a live setting, Flight of the Behemoth marks the highly influential band's taffy-pulling finest moment on wax. Collaborating with Japanese electronic noise overlord Merzbow on tracks 3 and 4 here and reconfiguring Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (the scarifying closer "FWTBT"), the glacial moan of feedback, while heavy and loud as all hell, serves to transfix the listener far more than it disturbs.
