SUNN O))) co-founders Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson set out on a path toward a new album production for 'Life Metal'. Following pre-production sessions as a trio with T.O.S. on Moog at Dave Grohl’s 606 Studios in Northridge, California, in July 2018, SUNN O))) spent just over two weeks in Chicago at Electrical Audio (Studio A) with Steve Albini at the helm. The results are astounding: there is breadth and luminosity of colour, it sounds vast. The sessions were impeccably recorded, authentically represented and completely accurate. The spectrum cracked the firmament open in clarity. An all-analogue technique was used, they 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. The album was mastered and the lacquers cut from tape in October by SUNN O))) ally Matt Colton at Alchemy in London. 'Life Metal' features guest contributions from composer/musician/vocalist Hildur Guðnadóttir (Múm, Pan Sonic, Angel.), longtime friend Tim Midyett (Silkworm, Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile), and composer Anthony Pateras. Dark matter is reality.
