New York Times mentions Sunn O)))

SUNN O))) at Knockdown Center (March 17, 8 p.m.). With its members dressed in hooded cloaks and shrouded in smoke from fog machines, Sunn O))) puts on concerts that can feel like bizarre cult rituals. And to fans of heavy metal’s many subgenres, they are. Since the late ’90s, the group’s founding members, Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson, have spurred a rise in experimental metal in America thanks to their own record label, Southern Lord, which has also released excellent albums by experimental-noise bands like Pelican and Boris. For this concert, brace yourself for overwhelming guitar drones, which Sunn O))) conjures with instruments tuned so low, they just might reach the Earth’s core.”
