Sunn O))) "Black One" (Southern Lord)

I can't think of anything much to say about this record. Other listeners have already written a lot of descriptive and intelligent things, in reviews that are keystrokes away if you'd like to read them.

I will say that I've listened to it more than anything else in the last few months (which for me might be four times or so), and that I've never heard guitars sound so crushingly distorted without the help of drums, and that the first listen was twice as frightening as the horror movie I'd just seen. I hear that the vocals for the last track were recorded while the claustrophobic singer was locked inside a coffin.
