Sunn O))) - Kannon (2015) - Review

Band: Sunn O)))
Album title: Kannon
Release date: 4 December 2015
Label: Southern Lord Records

Tracklist:
01. Kannon 1
02. Kannon 2
03. Kannon 3

If listening to drone music isn't that simple, talking about drone music is way more difficult, it isn't a topic for everyone, but in my opinion Sunn O)))'s work is always definable as masterpiece.
Kannon reflects the will of the duo to evolve their sound from the "nightmare" to something more easy but intense, due the recent collaboration with Ulver, the sound is more rich of ambient parts and vocals are much more chilling.
As usual music, concept and everything about the album goes around the massive and costant guitar riffing, as always, but in this case is more intellegible, more "metal", slightly more definable as a guitar sound, unusually clean and recognizable, mixed with eletronic synth and bass.
Sunn o))) managed to put more ambient stuff in this record as they done before in the split with Ulver, Boris and Scott Walker.
Feeling wise this record provides less anxiety, distress and chill more than every album before the recent splits, and give me the concrete sensation of a matured band, I really can feel the introspected trip that the band want to express through the concept.
Concept that unusually is more figurative and specific,around the multiple form of Buddah and his plurality, One, no-One, everything, nothing, incarnation of a goddes and so on.
Trying to explain in simple words, this album is more musical with the purpose to comunicate a religious and philosophic message.
In my opinion it's a step up for Sunn O))) as a band, it isn't perfect as the split with Ulver or evocative as the one with Boris, but still my favourite in their discography 'till now.

Band: Near Earth Orbit
Album title: Mission E.D.E.N.
Release date: 21 October 2016
Label: Solar Lodge

Mission E.D.E.N. is the last part of the trilogy which started in 2015 with the stunning album End Of All Existence and continued later with Trans Neptunian Objects. This trilogy is a sonic movie which requires your intelect, it's a perfect mixture of post-apocalypse, paranoia and fiction. In the end everything is left to your imagination. Musically Mission E.D.E.N. is a very strong album, it actually starts in the similar vein where Trans Neptunian Objects left off, and so it offers one hell of heavy intensity, dense and turbulent sound that can't be really properly categorized, but it's also highly atmospheric, sometimes soothing, even emotional and absolutely cinematic. It might not be so coherent as the first album and not so dense and raw as it was the second chapter, but it's much more atmospheric and like said before cinematic.
