STIMUL FESTIVAL to feature SUNN 0))) – TICKETS NOW ON SALE AT ARCHA THEATRE

6.4.2009

Sunn O))) will perform on June 4 at the Sacré Coeur Church in Prague. The American band is the biggest star on the contemporary experimental metal scene.

In the neo-gothic Sacré Coeur Church, two men in black hoods with guitars will emerge from the smoke. Behind them instead of an altar will be a wall of amplifiers, whose visceral force brings a chill to the spine. The incomparable drone-metal band Sunn O))) will perform for the first time in the Czech Republic as part of the STIMUL Festival.

Sunn O))), which consists of Stephen O’ Malley (Khanate, Burning Witch, KTL) and Greg Anderson (Goatsnake, Burning Witch, Burial Chamber Trio) is the biggest star in contemporary experimental metal and the signature issue by the Southern Lord record label. Though their music is not ashamed of its stylistic affiliation, it has also managed to abandon the clichés of the genre and to creatively assimilate the influences of drone minimalism, dark ambient, noise and laptop electronica.

The band is named after the legendary Sunn amplifier, whose logo O))) represents expanding sound waves. In the long compositions of Sunn O))) sound plays a significant role. The band’s work will return to the experimental guitar music scene, though in an unusual form: the guitar as a source of long drones, oppressively slow sound walls and feedbacks, the guitar pushed to the absolute extreme. This duo’s live concerts are unforgettable experiences, and not only because they are reminiscent of spectacular pagan rituals, but also because their music will echo through the halls of a former Prague monastery and girl’s boarding-school.

What’s more Sunn O))) will perform at a time when Jim Jarmusch’s new film The Limits of Control will premiere in Prague, for which Sunn O))) created the soundtrack together with their Japanese colleague Boris and the legendary Earth. It would be hard to find a more expressive symbol of the uncontrollable invasion of the metal aesthetic into the sophisticated world of music lovers.
