Description

    In July 2018, Sunn 0))) spent just over two weeks in Chicago at Electrical Audio (Studio A) with Steve Albini at the helm. The results are astounding: there is breadth and luminosity of colour, it sounds vast. The sessions were impeccably recorded, authentically represented and completely accurate. The spectrum cracked the firmament open in clarity. An all analogue technique was used, they recorded and mixed on tape, providing a creative gateway for Sunn 0))) to evolve their production methods into stronger, confident, performance based and a more logical executive process. The LP version is a AAA album, recorded and mixed on tape via a completely analogue production, from the input of the band's amplifiers and the air coming off the speakers in front of the microphones to needle touching the pressed vinyl on your turntable. Continuing one of the main currents of the Sunn 0))) concept, depth of exploration within collaboration, brought forth Hildur Gu0nad6ttir to the Sunn 0))) constellation. Hildur is a sometime live collaborator of Sunn 0))) and a renowned film music composer, former member of the bands Mum, Pan Sonic and Angel. She was a long time collaborator with the composer Johann J6hannsson (RIP). Hildur lent her incredible attitude, as well as her voice, breath and electric cello, and the enigmatic haldorophone to the procee mgs, cu mma mg m e epic concer o "Novre". The cosmos clearly expands. Prolific new music composer Anthony Pateras arranged and recorded an incredible contribution of pipe organ for a piece titled "Troubled Air". The resulting album is titled Life Metal. It is fully realized and completely real. The record was produced by the core of Stephen & Greg & arranged by the greater constellation Sunn 0))). Paintings by visual artist Samantha Keely Smith graciously adorn the packaging and provide a perfectly suitable mask to the proceedings.
