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: Helheim
Album title: landawarijaR
Release date: 20 January 2017
Label: Dark Essence Records

Helheim brings us the incredible progression of their musical style in this magnificent work. Helheim are one of the founding pioneers of the so called Viking metal genre. They go beyond the most familiar bands branded as Viking metal. They keep alive the devotion to Norse heritage, so shrouded in mysteries from the Runes that are worth exploring. Helheim bring their best in this album. All previous shortcomings are just vanishing in this beauty. landawarijaR it's like flying between peaks and valleys, feeling vengeance and beauty, hate and love in a fluid dynamics that makes it feel like one fifty-five minutes long song. Helheim during their entire career are making, let's say, a similar evolution like Enslaved, adding progressive elements to their music, yet in a unique way. On landawarijaR those ingredients sound really avant-garde.
