2014 will see the release of a collaboration between Sunn O))) and Ulver, entitled Terrestrials.
Kings of all things drone Sunn O))) and the enigmatic avant-garde group Ulver have confirmed their long rumored collaboration, in the form of an album called Terrestrials. The effort apparently comprises of three, presumably monolithic, tracks and will see the light of day come February 2014 through Southern Lord Records.
This isn’t the first time these two groups have collaborated however, they came together originally in tribute to b-movie legend Ed Wood on 2003’s White1 session, in which Ulver produced the 15 minute closer ‘CUTWOODeD’.
“Yes. At long last they have come together for a more developed collaborative work.” the press release states, “Today it comes with great pleasure to confirm that these words, SUNN O))) and ULVER, together, represent an astonishing yet somehow totally tenable matrimony of these two earthshakingly powerful forces, coming together like tectonic plates.
“The result of this union is a three-track recording entitled Terrestrials; three movements which are fluid like the flow of magma beneath the Earth’s crust, sonically uninhibited, unpredictably cosmic, haunting and stirring yet simultaneously ceremonious and beautiful.”
Terrestrials will available from February through Southern Lord Records.
