On September 22 the Blackened Music Series is proud to present the titans of ambient doom, SUNN O))). Sunn O))) recently released their seventh album Monoliths & Dimensions, and like the Richard Serra sculpture that adorns the cover, it is extremely heavy, powerful and beautiful. For this show the band, a duo consisting of Greg Anderson and Stephen O’Malley, is joined by Earth’s Steve Moore and Attila Csihar from black metal gods Mayhem.

Greg Anderson also runs the blackened metal label Southern Lord Records, and this show features three more Southern Lord artists. EARTH is the great pioneer of this genre, having perfected the art of doom drone in the 20 years since their first recordings. Sunn O))) is in many ways modeled as tribute to Earth. PELICAN is the towering instrumental metal band of their generation, with their Southern Lord debut coming What We All Come To Need out on October 27. And EAGLE TWIN, a new band led by Gentry Densley from the pioneering, progressive band Iceburn, makes their NYC debut.

This show takes place on Tuesday September 22 in the loudest room in New York – the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, located at 317 Clermont Avenue in Brooklyn.
