This album is so black, it's unreal. From the very first moment of Sin Nanna opening proceedings, the tone of impenetrable darkness pervades. And the album just keeps sinking further into the black, at times with icy cold. SUNN O))) are experimenting and evolving beyond their early recordings, moving into something more complex and, here at least, much more foreboding. Samhain is the moment to summon forth Black One, when the nights are long and the veil is thin. Do you dare to? Master of Alchemy
