Sunn 0))) to Release Vinyl-Only Double Album

posted by on September 22 at 11:13 AM

Throwing a middle-finger salute to the digital age, dramatic drone-dirge leviathans Sunn 0))) will issue the live double LP DÝmkirke exclusively on vinyl. The four songs reportedly were inspired by Gothic Gregorian hymns from the late Middle Ages (Iím shocked, too). Orders ship Sept. 29 and 30.

In the liner notes for the album, Nicholas Mollerhaug writes: ďThe gregorian hymns of this time reflected the despair, the terrors and darkness of the world. Musically the hymns consisted of long slow lines of unison melodies

More info from the press release by Sunn 0)))ís label, Southern Lord:

Last year sunn 0))) was invited to perform at a ancient cathedral in Bergen Norway. The performance was captured via 24 track mobile recording and the results were pressed onto double 180 gram black vinyl. This recording will be available exclusively on vinyl only. There will not be a digital release (cd or downloads) - pure analog! The 0))) lineup for this performance includes Attila Csihar (Mayhem) on vocals, Steve Moore (Earth, Ascend) on the church’s legendary pipe organ and Norwegian native Lasse Marhaug on electronics.

Sunn 0))): sounding fine in Earth tones.
