Experimental metal band Sunn O))) has announced plans to release two new albums this year, one of which has been produced by Steve Albini.
The records, one entitled Pyroclasts, and the other Life Metal, will be released through Southern Lord Recordings in April.
According to a press release, Sunn O))) founding members Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson began writing the new material at the beginning of 2018 and have been using “an all analogue technique” for the recording process. The band also added that the album was “recorded and mixed on tape, providing a creative gateway for Sunn O))) to evolve their production methods into stronger, confident, performance based and a more logical executive process.”
Pyroclasts is the first new album since Sunn O)))’s previous full-length album which was released way back in 2015.
